Summer is quickly approaching, so now is a good time to think about the skin care services we have to offer that are safe to do while exposed to sunshine.
Probably my favorite summer treatment to do is the Skin Ceuticals Pigment Balancing Masque. This exfoliation treatment helps to improve hyperpigmentation and Melasma, as well as preventing existing pigment from getting darker due to sun and heat exposure. It will also reduce redness, smooth texture, and improve certain acne conditions. The mask is infused with vitamin C and high performance brightening agents. Along with a Vitamin C serum and a retinol at home, as well as a daily SPF, this treatment is the best way to control summertime damage to the skin.
Exilis is a FDA approved, radio frequency device that will reduce fat and tighten tissue. The thermal energy will stimulate and strengthen the collagen to improve skin laxity. For the body, Exilis will shrink the fat cells in those problem areas. Since radio frequency does not create any photo sensitivity, this series is safe to do in the summertime. My favorite areas to treat with Exilis are the neck and jaw line and for the body, the “mommy tummy” responds well.
Other summer safe treatments we have available are facials, waxing, or lash and brow tinting. Also, don’t forget about keeping up with your injectables. Botox, Juvederm, Volbella, and Kybella are all safe to do in the summertime.
We look forward to seeing you during our beautiful Seattle summer months!
