This summer we were blessed with weeks of glorious sunshine. It was the perfect time to sun bathe on the beach, relax on a patio and enjoy delicious foods at a barbeque. After weeks from being outdoors, my patients are noticing that their skin is looking a little dull and dehydrated as their summer tan is fading away.
When we expose our skin to the sun, ultraviolet (UV) light has the potential to damage our elastin fibers and skin cells, thus causing saggy and pigmented skin. As recommended by World Health Organization, application of sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher is an effective way to prevent sun damage because it blocks out UV rays. However, what are the options for someone who forgot to apply their sunscreen or were not diligent with reapplying it throughout the day?
Here are 4 effective treatments that can help nourish and rehydrate your skin post sun exposure:
1. Vitamin Facial
Replenish your skin with high concentrations of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids to help aid your skin in repairing the damage from UV rays. Meanwhile, the stimulation from the vitamin facial will create collagen production and increased blood flow to the skin yielding a hydrated and healthy glow.
2. Skin Brightening Facial
A treatment that involves using small surface injections of glutathione, which is a powerful antioxidant, to the deeper layers of our skin to target pigmentation and dry/aging skin. This result is a smoother complexion with brighter, even toned skin.
Botox is one of the best anti-aging treatments to help soften fine lines and rejuvenate skin texture. When done appropriately, it can reverse the appearance of skin damage. Areas that are commonly treated include: forehead, crows feet and vertical lip lines. A significant difference can be seen in two weeks, with little to no down time.
One of the most obvious signs of dehydration is deflated and wrinkled skin. Fillers are able to replenish lost hydration and volume in one single treatment and provide instant and satisfying results. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to preserve and retain water to plump and hydrate the skin from the inside. It also diffuses fine lines, to reveal smoother and more radiant skin.
