WDC’s Top End of Summer Treatments

The end of summer is officially here. As we all know, the summer sun takes a toll on our skin year after year. Not only does our skin incur damage from being out in the sun for hours…the layers of sunscreen we are applying, and other environmental damage is also taking place. We have some steps for success on how to get your dull, damaged skin looking better than ever in the upcoming months!

  • Consider a deep cleansing of your skin with a procedure like Diamond Glow / previously known as SilkPeel. DiamondGlow™ is a skin-resurfacing treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of condition-specific serums to improve skin health, function, and appearance. Arguably the best part of a DiamondGlow treatment is the low/no downtime and how good your skin looks afterwards. This is a great procedure for a few days before a big event.
  • Chemical Peels are a great option for turning over your skin’s layer revealing healthier more glowing skin. We begin scheduling these in the fall, as you are typically better served with a series of peels. The appointments fill up fast, so consider your Chemical Peel with our aesthetics staff today. We offer a wide array of peels custom selected to your individual needs and goals. Be sure to keep in mind you may have peeling and redness, so avoid scheduling a peel before a big event.
  • The value of great skin care – everyone has different skincare needs as some of us are dry, oily, sensitive, have pigmentation, etc. However using pharmaceutical grade stable products that have been proven by top companies like SkinMedica and Skinceutical can have great results on your skin. A good antioxidant vitamin C is still one of the most essential products to include in your everyday skincare regimen. Not only do antioxidants protect your skin, they also simultaneously brighten your skin, even out skin-tone, calm inflammation, and slow down premature aging. Retinols-another important product for anti-aging and everyone’s skincare regimen. Retinol helps to build collagen reserves, which in turn helps to delay the look of wrinkles and to keep skin looking firm for a supple, smooth feel and youthful appearance. If retinol tends to irritate your skin, we have a couple of product options that may be perfect for you, like our Sente Biocomplete Serum. Next up are growth factors. When applied topically, growth factors are one of the best active ingredients for total skin rejuvenation. growth factors communicate with your cells to create more collagen and elastin, which keep skin smooth and firm for a healthy, youthful complexion. One of our favorite growth factor products is the SkinMedica Essential Serum. Lastly, don’t forget to keep wearing sunscreen even though we are out of the dog days of summer. Some of our favorite daily sunscreens are the EltaMD clear, and Revision Intellishade (if you like tinted).

For those looking to address pigmentation from the summer sun damage, we have some amazing gold standard options for treatment. We’ve got the latest in BBL (broadband light) technology. BroadBand Light (BBL)® is an innovate technology for targeting irregular areas on your body and providing refreshed, rejuvenated, and reinvigorated skin. With the ability to treat vascular and brown spots all in one treatment, BBL is easily one of the most popular after summer lasers out there. Another favorite treatment for pigmentation is our CoolPeel treatment. This unique and highly versatile solution offers high levels of skin resurfacing with extremely minimal downtime — often lasting as little as three days! This process uses heat energy and triggers collagen production, which can dramatically improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, and clear up the skin’s complexion. We are already booking up quickly with these procedure for laser season, so get on the schedule as soon as you can to reserve a spot!

The easy go to treatments we can all benefit from can come in the form of injectables. Botox/Dysport are great options for addressing fine lines and fillers like Voluma and Restylane Contour can address volume needs and help you regain a more youthful appearance.

There are so many options, from skincare to treatments. Remember we are here to help you look and feel better. If you want to learn more what is best for you consider setting up a complimentary cosmetic consult with our experienced staff. Call 910-256-4350 or contact through our website today!
