Two things that can affect how well your skin treatment works are also the two things summer is known best for: intense sunlight and high temperatures. That’s why we’re often asked, “Are some procedures safer in the summer than others?”

The answer is yes — and we have some exceptional solutions here at Wilmington Dermatology, particularly our most sought-after summertime treatments, Ultherapy® and Virtue RF. Below, we’ll explore these options and why they’re the right choice during the summer.

Why Choose Summer-Safe Skin Treatments?

Summer means exposed skin, and we all want our skin to look its best. We understand what you want: to get a stunning beach body you’ll love to see in pictures! But you should also confirm that any skin treatments you get this time of year allow you to safely enjoy the summer sun and heat. That’s why we’ve made sure that our aesthetic solutions are as excellent for you skin as they are for your looks!

Ultherapy® Treatment

Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin lifting treatment, mainly used to rejuvenate your facial features by tightening skin for a natural, youthful look. It uses a special ultrasound machine, which generates a gentle heat to stimulate collagen production under the skin in preselected areas, for a safe skin refresh.

It’s a great option in the summer, especially if you plan ahead: you can see results in just 3-6 months, and the outcomes can last for more than two years — even if you’re hitting the beach whenever you can. Ultherapy® offers smoother skin that won’t be undone by a little sun!

VirtueRF Treatment

VirtueRF® is a minimally-invasive procedure that, like Ultherapy®, stimulates collagen production under the skin. Its microneedles deliver radiofrequency energy to specific treatment areas where you want more responsive skin and fewer wrinkles.

VirtueRF® is an outpatient procedure that offers nearly instant results, and requires almost no downtime before you can start showing off your skin. We highly recommend it in the summer because it boasts some of the most visible, fast, and sun-safe outcomes!

Ultherapy®, VirtueRF, Or Both?

While their goals of tightening your skin and stimulating collagen are similar, there are some differences between the two procedures that may help you decide which to get — or whether you want both!

Ultherapy® is a one-time procedure that takes some time to achieve full results, while VirtueRF® requires a series of three to four treatments every six weeks to maintain its effects. Ultherapy® also treats deeper layers of tissue to provide a lift, while VirtueRF® microneedling address fine lines and wrinkles on the surface. This makes them an excellent combination of treatments!

If your skincare goals include lasting lift, eliminating wrinkles, and showing off your best self, come to Wilmington Dermatology Center for a consultation. We’ll be able to assess if Ultherapy® or VirtueRF® —or both — could benefit you!
