Everybody loves the summertime because it’s the perfect opportunity to soak up the sun and enjoy fun outdoor activities. While you may relish the sunshine, the UV rays can play havoc with your skin no matter how careful you are about using sunscreen. That’s why post-summer skincare should be a top priority.
Signs of Post-Summer Skin Damage
Too much sun can lead to dull, dry skin, pigmentation, acne breakouts and other types of skin damage. So what can you do to help your skin recover after the summer? Treatments that cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise skin can reverse the effects of UV radiation and give your skin a fresh start.
Treatments for Sun-Damaged Skin
Rejuvenate Dull, Dry Skin
If the hot, sunny weather leaves your skin dull, dry, and irritated LED light therapy can soothe your skin and enhance its natural healing.
Dryness and irritation are signs that your skin’s moisture barrier is compromised. Hydrating serums heighten skin repair, making skin soft and dewy again. At our clinic, we use the Zeitschild BR Barrier Repair Crème to renew dry skin. This therapeutic cream restores the skin’s moisture levels and nourishes from within.
Pigmentation and melasma are common post-summer skin concerns. The excess sun exposure triggers an increase in the production of melanin (pigment), resulting in the formation of darker patches of skin.
Pigmentation reduction treatments such as PRX -T33® Peel and laser therapyerase brown spots, age spots, melasma and other signs of sun damage.
The PRX -T33® Peel is a bio-revitalising formula. This treatment uses trichloroacetic acid and hydrogen peroxide to dissolve dead skin cells and promote clear, even-toned skin.
Lasers treat skin discolouration by targeting excess melanin. The heat generated by the laser breaks up the pigmented cells, which are removed from the body over time.
The higher summer temperatures cause you to perspire more. Increased perspiration combined with a build-up of sunscreen and excess oil on the surface of the skin can clog the pores and cause an acne outbreak. That’s why people with acne-prone skin tend to experience breakouts during the hotter months.
Mechanical exfoliation removes dead skin cells and other debris from the surface of the skin. Unclogging the pores evens skin tone and improves skin radiance.
HydraFacial also works wonders for acne symptoms. It is a gentle treatment that extracts impurities from the pores and infuses the skin with serums that enhance hydration. HydraFacial uses patented Vortex-Fusion technology to hydrate the skin and boost your glow.
