Back to School and Back to Skin – Time to Repair Your Summer Skin

bak-to-skinWhen we think “summer skin,” we’re probably thinking about sun-kissed, bronzed, glowing skin. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Excessive sun damage that accumulated from sun exposure can lead to dry, flaky skin, sagging cheeks, sun spots, advance signs of aging, and even worse—sun burns and hyperpigmentation. If you’re headed back to school you might not be debuting a healthy glow, but rather, overly damaged skin. Want to get fresher, younger skin before heading back to class? Try these tips and treatments to get your skin back on track.

Say Hi to Pretty, with Permanent Makeup

Maybe you’re heading back to school and are dreading having to wake up so early in the morning to put on makeup. Maybe it’s physically very difficult for you to have to “put on your face” every single day. It’s possible that you might have developed darkening scars or skin discoloration from your time in excessive sunlight.

There a lot of reasons why you might want permanent makeup, but one thing’s for sure: it’s unbelievably convenient. Permanent makeup is basically a way to implant pigment on the outer layers of your skin, afterwards, you’ll get long-lasting eyeliner, brows, eyelash extensions, lip liner and lip color that won’t smudge off or wash away with water. Actress Bella Thorne recently got her eyebrows done with permanent makeup– and she loves it!

Say Goodbye to Scarring

Did you know that excessive sun exposure and sun burns can darken your scars, making them even more noticeable? It’s actually why a lot of plastic surgeons and dermatologists recommend reducing any kind of sun exposure after facial rejuvenation treatments or while a person is recovering from a facelift. Facial scarring is actually pretty common in a lot of people, and they usually exist as acne scars, trauma, burn marks, surgical scars, or chicken pox. For a lot of people, facial scarring can cause a lot of embarrassment and feelings of self-consciousness.

Want to get rid scarring or just reverse the effects of sun damage on scars? Try one of (or maybe even a combination of) these scar camouflaging treatments like excisional surgery, grafting, soft tissue augmentation, subcision, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, microdermabrasion and dermabrasion.

Dark Eye Circles

Dark eye circles—most people see them as remnants of sleepless nights stressing over tests, papers and assignments. Actually, healthy, relaxed people who’ve gotten lots of summer sleep can get dark eye circles for other reasons: allergies, genetically dark skin pigmentation, and yes, sun exposure. Although it’s not fair, dark eye circles will automatically make you look cranky and tired. Not exactly evidence of a fun, carefree summer. To help with dark eye circles, try a dermal filler like Restylane or Juvederm to create volume in thinning, sagging skin that create shadows underneath the eyes.

Summer usually means being out and about, but fall means going back to school and having to look your best all the time. Contact Abadir Associates now, for a consultation on the perfect skin treatment for you to try before fall.
