Summer Skincare From the Pros at Dermatology Consultants
Summertime is here and it’s one of our favorite seasons. School is out, the days are longer, and vacation plans abound. Shedding layers of clothing also means it’s time to switch up skincare routines while checking in on our skin and bodies. At Dermatology Consultants, we believe that health is beauty. Our goal is to help you look and feel your very best with clear, fresh-looking skin that acts young. With reunions, weddings, and get-togethers cropping up, we understand patients desire to look their best! At Dermatology Consultants, our patients trust us with options for achieving healthy, beautiful skin. Whether it’s recurring skin issues or aesthetic needs like body contouring and non-invasive treatments, we’ve got you covered.
Rising temperatures and outdoor activities likely means your skin is clogged with sweat, sunscreen, and excess oil during hot, humid months. Hydrafacials are a good general skincare treatment throughout the year and provide an extra refreshing boost in the summer. They are quick and effective to exfoliate, refresh, and hydrate all skin types, and can be added on to any in-office treatment.This dynamic facial machine not only cleanses and extracts impurities but deposits skin beneficial serums and treatments, in under an hour! You can also customize your treatment to meet specific needs by selecting different options to infuse the skin with renewing ingredients.
Laser Hair Removal
Tired of dealing with prickly stubble and unsightly body hair? Laser hair removal is an excellent way to banish unwanted hair while you show off more skin in the summer! Using intense pulsed light, we can effectively destroy the hair follicle so that hair stops growing for a time. Your dermatologist or laser technician will work with you to determine if you’re a good candidate and get you started on a plan to get rid of unwanted body hair.
Summer months are best used for minimally invasive treatments. A great regimen for clear, glowing skin is to schedule a series of laser facials. Many require downtime, so choosing non-invasive lasers like the MOXI™ Laser by Sciton, which is gentle and non-ablative, is a smart decision. It’s considered a “lunchtime laser” because you can get great fresh, clear, and glowing skin in a short 30 minute session. If you have more advanced signs of aging and are committed to staying out of the sun, talk to your laser technician about more ablative laser treatments like HALO or phototherapy like BBL.
Smooth Out Wrinkles with Injectables
Tired of looking older than you feel? Fine lines and creases from years of expressions can be erased in minutes with the magic of neurotoxins. Lines belong on a sailboat, or the tennis court, not on your face! Annoying lines on your forehead and around the eyes from frowning, smiling, and just making everyday expressions can be erased with some simple Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport injections. These temporarily relax the underlying muscle, smoothing out lines and relaxing creases. Your muscles will also stop clenching, so the anti-wrinkle effect will continue as long as you keep up with treatment, about every 3-5 months.
Plump up deeper creases along the sides of the mouth, chin, and hollows in the cheeks with long-lasting dermal fillers. We can improve our eating, sleeping, and exercise to take care of our skin, but we can’t defy the laws of gravity that pull everything down with age. Summer is a great time to invest in fillers- with no downtime and immediate effects, you can enjoy visibly defined cheeks and jawlines, disappearing nasolabial folds and a more wide awake look. Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to attract water to the area, restoring volume and filling out hollows. The experts at Dermatology Consultants will help you choose the right filler for your needs.
Sculpting Your Way to a Tight, Toned Body
Showing lots of skin this summer? Make sure it’s tight and toned with the latest in body contouring options like CoolSculpting and EmSculpt. Did you know that Dermatology Consultants was the first practice in the Atlanta area to offer the EmSuite, providing patients access to non-surgical body sculpting procedures that reduce fat, contour the body, and build muscle? If you’re happy with your weight but still have stubborn pockets of fat, cryolipolysis via CoolSculpting helps your body flush out those remaining fat cells. Now, we have an advanced option with CoolSculpt Elite, flushing out 2x the fat cells as before! Looking to increase your six-pack or fine tune those glute muscles while diminishing fat? EmSculpt is the answer. Using high intensity focused electromagnetic energy pulses to create thousands of deep muscle contractions, each EmSculpt session is the equivalent of 20,000 crunches or squats! Both treatments take only 30 minutes and are non-invasive with no downtime. Get the tight and toned body you desire now and be motivated to stay in shape the rest of the year.
Skincare Must-Haves for Summer
As dermatologists who truly believe that “health is beauty” we can’t welcome summer without prescribing our skincare must-haves. Because healthy beauty starts within, we all take our daily Heliocare or SunIsdin supplement. These are both vitamin and antioxidant-rich natural supplements to offset the harmful free radicals from the sun. Topical treatments with Vitamin C are also essential for summer skin health, as well as non-chalky daily sun protection. Let your skin breathe and be well protected with options from our favorite lines like Alastin, Isdin, and Elta MD.
Take the season to relax into your routine by investing in a skincare regimen designed to help you look your very best. By keeping your pores clean with Hydrafacials, wrinkles at bay with injections, and body taut with a variety of contouring options, you’ll be looking good no matter where you go. We’ve been treating patients in Atlanta for years at Dermatology Consultants and love seeing them take care of their skin.
