How to Undo the Effects of Summer Sun Damage

As summer winds down and your skin is not looking its best, it may be time to initiate some process to reverse the effects of summer damage. Excessive sun, wind, sand, chlorine, and salt water exposure can trigger a discolored, splotchy, and dull skin presence. Your skin will increase the number of dead cells to protect itself from the elements resulting in a weathered and dry skin appearance.

Additionally, an increase in sun spots, freckles and the increased risk of skin cancer are other factors to consider for those who spent their summer in the sun. To get your skincare back on track, here are some tips we suggest to implement immediately:

Schedule a Peel

Removing dead skin cells, lightening discoloration and enhancing skin radiance are great benefits of a chemical peel. This procedure is a strategic treatment to rejuvenate your skin after your summer fun. Your individual skin care needs and the level of summer damage will determine if a chemical peel is a right choice for you. It is an optimal beauty enhancement treatment for patients with summer damage and acne as well.

With multiple options available including Micropeels, Dermaplaning, facial treatments, and acne facials, improvements to sun spots, skin tone, wrinkles, lines and moderate acne breakouts can be a welcome benefit to start your fall season.

The Magic of Laser Resurfacing

Lasers have been successful in treating skin issues for over two decades. Our StarLux 1440 laser system removes external skin layers without affecting adjacent skin tissue. This skin care laser treatment is relatively painless with no downtime after treatment. It is effective in the treatment of wrinkles and lines, scars, stretch marks, dull skin, brown spots, and sun damage.

Treatments are quick events done in our state-of-the-art dermatology center and are suitable for different parts of your body.

Dermaplaning

This procedure is a great alternative to a chemical peel or laser resurfacing. It simply removes excess skin cells by gentle exfoliation. You will enjoy skin rejuvenation and a smooth, soft skin surface free of skin debris and unwanted peach fuzz. Dermaplaning will also speed up skin cell regeneration and improve product absorption.

Update Your Skincare Products

Once your summer is over, upgrading your skincare regimen may be a smart move. The use of topical serums and lotions including retinol or glycolic acid at night will help restore skin radiance and reduce some of the setbacks caused by the sun.

Exfoliation, sunscreens, moisturizers, collagen stimulation and other anti-aging remedies will help you enjoy a revitalized skin beauty and resolve skin problems resulting from the effects of your summer.

We offer the best products from the best product lines to help restore and maintain your skin health. With our professional consultation, these products are good for aftercare treatments from dermatologic and cosmetic procedures as well as your daily skin care regimen.

Other Considerations

At Abadir Associates, we offer other treatments designed to improve skin health and appearance. These include microdermabrasion, wrinkle treatments, Photofacial and scar camouflage. With multiple treatments at our disposal, we can customize your skincare to fit your unique needs and goals.

Take a Hard Look at Your Skin

If you have never seen a dermatologist or it’s been a while, the fall season is a great time to do it. Sun exposure may cause slight immune suppression within your skin which can allow severe skin issues like skin cancer. With a fall skin assessment, you can avoid skin complications and bring proactive help to your skin beauty.
