A Comprehensive Guide

Top 2024 Summer Skin Treatments

Summer sun and the long-awaited summer holidays are finally here! At Aestha Clinic, we understand that you want to look and feel your best for summer – so here is our guide on scheduling your treatments safely to ensure the best results are achieved.

What Should You Be Aware Of?

When it comes to aesthetic treatments, timing is everything, especially during the summer. Some skin resurfacing treatments, such as chemical peels and microneedling, require extra caution. These treatments can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, increasing the risk of hyperpigmentation and sun damage. To avoid these issues, we advise staying away from high levels of sun exposure for at least two weeks before and two weeks after these treatments.

This doesn’t mean you need to rule out all skin rejuvenation treatments during the summer. With the right precautions, you can still enjoy various treatments without compromising your skin health. As long as you are not over-exposing your skin to the sun and are diligent about wearing SPF every day, you can address almost all of your skin and body concerns even during the hottest of days this summer.

Sunlight and INJECTABLES

What About Injectable Treatments?

Injectable treatments are a fantastic way to rejuvenate your skin during the summer. HydraFacial combined with skinboosters, for instance, infuse your skin with moisture, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making them perfect for a summer glow. The good news is that injectable treatments such as skinboosters, dermal fillers, and anti-wrinkle injections only require you to stay out of the sun for 48 hours. Therefore, the summer sun shouldn’t cause a delay in getting your favorite injectable treatments.

For anti-wrinkle injections, it’s important to remember that they can take up to two weeks to show optimum results. So, if you have special events coming up, make sure to book your appointment in advance.

Summer Skincare Tips

Our Top Tips for Adjusting Your Skincare Regime for the Summer

As the summer sun intensifies, it’s crucial to adapt your skincare routine to protect and nourish your skin. Here are our top tips:

Wear SPF 30-50 or Above: Sunscreen is your first line of defense against harmful UV rays. Apply it generously on all sun-exposed areas daily to prevent sunburn and long-term damage.

Incorporate Antioxidants: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that enhances your skin’s protection against the sun and pollution. Apply it under your SPF to boost your skin’s defense mechanisms.

Address Uneven Pigmentation: Summer can exacerbate uneven pigmentation. Using an anti-pigment serum can help manage and reduce dark spots, ensuring a more even skin tone.

Be Cautious with Retinol: Retinol increases your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. It’s advisable to stop using retinol a week before any sunny holidays to avoid sunburn and damage.

Injectable Treatments for Summer

Detailed Insights into Our Advanced Treatments

Now, let’s delve into some of the advanced treatments you can consider to look your best this summer.

Body Contouring Treatments

EmSculpt Neo

This innovative treatment uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to induce powerful muscle contractions. These contractions are stronger than voluntary ones, leading to increased muscle mass and fat reduction. EmSculpt is ideal for those looking to tone their abs, buttocks, arms, and legs. The treatment is non-invasive and has no downtime, but for best results, it’s recommended to avoid strenuous activities and excessive sun exposure immediately after the sessions.

Lanluma

Lanluma is a biostimulatory filler that works differently from traditional fillers. It stimulates collagen production over time, leading to natural-looking results. It is excellent for contouring the body, especially the buttocks. As with any injectable treatment, it’s crucial to follow post-treatment care instructions, which include avoiding sun exposure and intense physical activity for a short period.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are perfect for restoring volume and fullness to the face. They can enhance your lips, cheeks, and jawline, providing a youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are popular because they mimic the body’s natural substances and provide immediate results. After treatment, avoiding direct sun exposure and extreme heat is recommended for a couple of days to prevent swelling and bruising.

Muscle Relaxants

Muscle relaxants, commonly known as anti-wrinkle injections, work by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles, preventing them from contracting. This smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, giving you a refreshed look. These injections are quick, with minimal downtime. However, as mentioned earlier, full results can take up to two weeks, so plan accordingly if you have any events.

Pigmentation Treatment

MESO-XANTHIN F199 is a cutting-edge injectable treatment designed to combat pigmentation issues. It combines xanthohumol, a powerful antioxidant, with other skin-brightening agents to reduce the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone. The treatment works at the cellular level, promoting skin repair and regeneration. Post-treatment care includes avoiding direct sun exposure and applying sunscreen diligently, as the skin can be more sensitive to UV rays following the procedure.

Fotona 4D

Fotona 4D is a comprehensive skin tightening treatment that utilizes a combination of laser technologies to target various layers of the skin. It promotes collagen production, resulting in firmer and tighter skin. The treatment is non-invasive and requires no downtime, but sun protection is essential post-treatment to maintain the results and prevent any adverse effects.

To Conclude

Planning your aesthetic treatments around your summer activities is crucial for achieving the best results and maintaining your skin’s health. By understanding the specific requirements and aftercare of each treatment, you can enjoy the benefits without compromising your summer fun. Remember to wear your SPF, incorporate antioxidants into your skincare routine, and avoid direct sun exposure following treatments. At The Aestha Clinic, we are here to help you navigate your summer beauty regimen, ensuring you look and feel your best all season long.
