Top Cosmetic Procedures for Spring!

Spring is here…and with Spring comes parties, festivals, and SUN! Everyone is looking to refresh after the chilly winter months, but there are things you should know about what procedures are appropriate for spring/summer and which one’s to avoid.

Since most of us don’t have that summer tan yet, now is an ideal time to get in your laser hair removal sessions! Get your bikini line, armpits, and legs treated for a low-maintenance bump-free summer! Laser hair removal typically takes 4-6 treatments with about 4-6 weeks in between each session.

Ulthera is another great treatment to do during the spring and summer. Ulthera uses ultrasound technology to give a lift to face, neck, and eyes without surgery. Also FDA approved to treat the wrinkles on the chest. There is minimal to no downtime with the procedure, and most importantly, no risk with sun exposure after the procedure. It does take a full 3 months to see the gradual results and collagen build-up, but the results are worth the wait!

Fillers,and Botox/Dyposrt are also great options to give you a glowing look for the spring season events. With quick results and no risk of side effects from sun exposure, we’ll have you wrinkle free and feeling great in no time.

Our Clear + Brilliant laser is a great option to give you a fresh glow.  Although it is a laser, this is one that is mild enough to do in the springtime.  This is more of a maintenance laser with minimal downtime (you may experience redness the day of the procedure) that can be added into your regimen to refresh and restart the skin, giving you a glowing and radiant look and feel!

Procedures to avoid with sun exposure are most lasers like the Fraxel laser and Medlite (for treatment of brown spots), and chemical peels. With these types of treatments the risk is usually not worth it. If you are exposed to the sun prior to these procedures, they have the potential to make the things you were aiming to make better, worse. So keep in mind before planning out your regimen for the spring what are great treatment options and what things to avoid.
