Summer is one of the best times to show off your skin – however, summer can also take a big toll on your skin. Whether it’s sun damage, sweat, swimming pools, and more, taking good care of your skin is essential during the hot days of summer. Along with practicing good sunscreen habits, we recommend visiting a skincare specialist to learn about the best ways to reverse sun damage and keep your skin fresh. At Grace + Gray Med Spa, our amazing team can help you invest in your skin and enjoy your best summer yet. Here are our top five recommendations for keeping your skin looking bright and healthy this summer.
Dermaplaning is the ultimate quick-and-easy skincare treatment. Using a surgical scalpel, dermaplaning carefully exfoliates away dead cells and fine hairs, leaving smooth, soft skin. Because it’s gentle and doesn’t use any harsh products or energy devices, it’s safe and effective for virtually any skin type or tone. It can also be combined with other skincare treatments to better allow your skin to absorb the benefits. After dermaplaning, you’ll notice your skincare products and makeup have a silky, smooth finish.
There are a lot of benefits to professional-grade skincare products, especially if you want to see maximal results for your money. SkinMedica offers a variety of high-powered formulas that can support the results of your skincare treatment or address specific concerns all on their own. Our skincare experts can help you develop a personalized regimen to protect against sun damage, reverse pigmentation, and stay hydrated and glowing.
Microneedling is the best way to break down scar tissue, improve texture, and achieve a more even skin tone. It works by creating tiny injuries in the skin that prompt your body to generate new collagen. As the skin is resurfaced, it appears brighter, healthier, and plumper. Microneedling is one of our most recommended summer treatments because it can be combined with physician-grade products to tackle pigmentation and texture, two of the most common signs of sun damage.
Morpheus8 is a more advanced version of microneedling due to it being paired with radiofrequency energy. This additional benefit can contract and tighten the skin at its deepest layers. The best part is that Morpheus8 can be used all over the face and body, making it an ideal solution for stretched skin in areas like the stomach or thighs. If you’re looking for beach body results without surgery or downtime, then Morpheus8 is for you.
Professional-grade facials and peels are one of the best ways to infuse your skin with much-needed hydration during the summer. One hallmark of sun damage is dryness and texture – that’s because UV rays can dry out skin and make it more difficult for the body to stay hydrated. Our aesthetic experts can put together a deeply hydrating facial treatment and recommend our best products to lock in moisture and maintain a glowing, hydrated look. Make sure to drink plenty of water, too!
You’re likely much more aware of unwanted hair during the summer months – and tired of shaving, plucking, waxing, and more. If you’re wanting to get rid of unwanted hair with laser hair removal, the bikini area and underarms are great options during the summer months since they’re less likely to be exposed to sunlight. You can enjoy smoother, silkier skin in just a few treatments with a personalized package created by our team.
Protecting your skin against sun damage and UV rays is the single most important way to keep your skin healthy and glowing. We offer a curated selection of SPF products and can help you select the sunscreen that works best for your skin, lifestyle, and cosmetic needs. Don’t forget to also practice good sun habits like wearing a hat, sunglasses, SPF lip balm, and sun protective clothing.
