Let’s face it, Southern California’s beautiful weather year round makes radiant, glowing skin essential at all times. However, many individuals are more conscientious about the health and beauty of their skin as summer approaches, and for good reason. The uptick in barbecues, beach days and summer soirees means your skin will be on full display for all to see. If you’re self-conscious about a dry, dull complexion or other skin imperfections, Dr. George Sanders encourages you to consider a non-surgical skin treatment with him. In this blog post, he discusses the best treatments he offers for great summer skin.
Why Prepare Your Skin for Summer?
As temperatures heat up, it is important to shed dead skin and promote healthy cell turnover. With the increased warmth, you may find that you are sweating more and your skin feels oilier. Humidity can also trap buildup and contribute to unwanted breakouts and skin irritation. Fortunately, there are various treatments that can keep your skin clean, clear, and hydrated.
Spending time in the sun can zap the moisture from your skin and leave it feeling dry and itchy. Sun damage can also take a toll. But you do not need the heavy moisturizers used to protect your skin during winter; you want something light and non-greasy with UV protection.
Preparing your skin for summer can repair the natural barrier against moisture loss, remove impurities, control oil, and leave you feeling more refreshed. Regular exfoliation and hydration help keep your skin looking healthy and attractive. Peels can target damaged cells and promote healing and a more consistent tone and texture.
Treat your skin well this summer with customized treatments aligned with your aesthetic goals and objectives. Dr. George Sanders works with you to find an effective regimen that enhances your natural beauty and boosts your self-confidence.
Exfoliating is an important part of keeping your skin fresh and healthy. Chemical peels are a popular in-office exfoliating treatment that sloughs off dead and damaged skin cells to make way for younger and healthier-looking skin. Using a customized blend of chemical agents, chemical peels can be used to treat a variety of skin imperfections, including wrinkles, fine lines, enlarged pores, sun damage, age spots and certain scars. In addition to the face, chemical peels can be used to improve the appearance of skin on the neck, chest, hands, arms and legs. Our team adjusts the strength of the chemical peel to achieve each patient’s desired results.
Laser Skin Resurfacing and Rejuvenation
For more comprehensive rejuvenation, Dr. Sanders offers a variety of laser treatments. The Sciton Erbium laser is a gentle yet powerful skin resurfacing treatment that uses laser light to target the superficial layers of the skin and reveal younger and healthier layers. Dr. Sanders may recommend skin resurfacing with the Erbium laser if you have moderate lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars and brown spots.
Skinfinity harnesses the power of fractional ablative radiofrequency technology to rejuvenate your skin. Consistent energy is applied to create micro injuries just below the skin’s surface that trigger a healing response. It can help firm skin, reduce acne scars and stretch marks, minimize wrinkles, and improve skin texture.
A hydrafacial is like a drink of water for your skin. Choose from three procedures: Signature is a basic cleanse, exfoliation, extraction, and antioxidant and peptide infusion. Deluxe combines a booster and LED light therapy, and Platinum includes lymphatic drainage, a booster of choice, and LED light therapy.
We also Offer the Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial
Popular with many celebrities, this facial leverages the power of pressurized oxygen to transport hyaluronic acid, peptides, antioxidants, and other nutrients deep into the skin. As skin is hydrated, fine lines and wrinkles are minimized leaving a plumper, more youthful appearance with no downtime.
We Strive for the Perfect Derma Peel
As a medium-depth chemical peel, the Perfect Derma Peel removes dead skin cells and stimulates new cell and collagen production leading to brighter, tighter, healthier skin. A combination of acids and peptides are applied to combat signs of aging and smooth your complexion. The peel takes about one week to complete.
TCA peels promote new skin growth by gently removing the damaged top layer of skin using trichloroacetic acid. Peel strength is customized to your needs. As new cells form, it can reduce the appearance of scars, uneven texture and pigmentation, and other imperfections leaving behind smoother, glowing skin.
Mesopeels came about in 2016 as a way to stimulate skin regeneration and improve the appearance of the skin. Treatment is tailored to each individual for a combination that fits your specific concerns, including acne scars, dark spots, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and wrinkles.
Microneedling and Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling uses incredibly thin needles to quickly penetrate the skin and cause microtears. As the tears heal, it can increase collagen and elastic production for smoother, tighter skin. Adding platelet rich plasma (PRP) taken from your own blood can further enhance results and speed up healing.
