Post-Summer Skin Care Essentials
September 2, 2014 - By Dr. Jules Feledy
Now that summer is coming to an end and we’re making the transition into cooler days, make sure you’re taking good care of your skin with a new skin care routine. The change of the season is a good time to take inventory of your skin care regimen and change up some of your products. If you have developed sun spots or hyperpigmentation from too much sun exposure this summer, now is a great time to undergo an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment that can lighten those darker areas and even out your skin tone. Here are some post-summer skin care essentials that will get your skin back in great shape fast:
Treat Sun-Damaged Skin with IPL Photorejuvenation
If you developed sun spots and freckles on your face, hands, or neck, reverse some of that sun damage with Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments. This is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that delivers broadband light through the skin and stimulates collagen production. Your skin will heal quickly after each treatment and you will notice those sun spots and freckles start to disappear within a few months.
Even Out Your Skin Tone with Fractional CO2 Treatments
If a dull complexion is one of your biggest skin concerns, talk to Dr. Feledy about Fractional CO2 laser treatments. Laser resurfacing treatments are more aggressive than light therapy and are especially effective for smoothing out wrinkles, acne scars, and fine lines. The laser promotes fast collagen rebuilding which helps to restore a more youthful look and gives you a natural glow. There may be some minimal downtime involved with this procedure, but you will see significant results after just one session.
Freshen Up Post-Summer Skin with a Chemical Peel
We often recommend a series of chemical peels during the fall and winter months because the skin won’t be so sensitive to the sun and you may spend more time indoors. The right type of chemical peel can slough away dead skin and address common post-summer skin problems such as a dull complexion, an uneven skin texture, and hyperpigmentation. You may need a series of peels spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
