The dog days of summer are upon us, which means looking our radiant best is a challenge, to say the least! If sweat and clogged pores are putting a damper on your glow, it’s time to turn to the experts (that’s us!) to hit the refresh button and give your skin the TLC it craves right now.
Here are just a few of our glow-getting summer skin care solutions to start ASAP:
Medical-grade SPF and makeup
What are you putting on your face these days? Is your makeup oil-free and formulated with SPF and antioxidants to not only perfect your look but also protect your skin from damaging UV rays and pollution? Medical Director Dr. Kevin Bridge and the aesthetic team have hand-selected every product on our menu because we are passionate about helping you achieve and maintain a radiant complexion at every stage of life! For example, we proudly carry the Glo Skin Beauty line because we believe everything you put on your face should nourish and protect it, even your makeup! One of our most popular Glo Skin products is C-Shield Anti-Pollution Moisture Tint SPF 30. This hydrating formula is packed with natural mineral pigments and a flattering tint to deliver a sheer, dewy and radiant finish. We also carry Theraderm® and SkinCeuticals®, two amazing medical-grade skin care lines that are formulated to help heal, protect and replenish your skin from the inside out.
Hot summer weather means more sweat, oil and debris building up on your skin and potentially clogging your pores. Two treatments that can help to clear away this debris and deep clean your pores are PowerDerm microdermabrasion and SkinPen® microneedling treatments. During the summer, these treatments are ideal because they are safe for almost every skin type, even darker tones. (However, it’s still vital to stay out of the sun while your skin is healing following your treatment. Generally speaking, the more you can protect your skin the better your results will be, truly! This is because there is no positive spin to sun exposure. Sure, you may get some “color,” but that color comes at a great price, resulting in redness, dark spots, lines and wrinkles and other signs of aging.)
Now, let’s get back to perfect summer skin treatments! Our PowerDerm microdermabrasion pairs exfoliation with a light chemical peel to provide deep-cleaning action, removing sun damage, extracting blackheads and whiteheads, improving acne and clogged pores, smoothing scars and other texture concerns and brightening dullness.
For even more skin smoothing power, you may opt for SkinPen microneedling, which uses microneedles to create controlled wounds within your skin and stimulate new collagen and elastin growth, revealing smoother texture, smaller pore size, brightened dullness and more with a series of treatments.
At Hendrick Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, we strive to deliver the most effective methods for correcting skin problems and revealing that lit-from-within glow you deserve! To discover the glow-getting regimen for you, please call us at 325-670-5320 or request a consultation online today.
