Two Skin Treatments To Get Before Summer

With summer on its way, preparing your skin is a must. Spring provides the perfect opportunity to reverse the harsh effects winter has on our skin. There are various treatments you can undergo to restore your skin and even get a youthful glow. The following treatments are effective, safe and will give you fresh, summer-ready skin.

Chemical peel treatments

Chemical peels are done to improve the texture of our skin. These treatments involve removing the outermost layers of skin to reveal the fresh, smoother layers underneath. After undergoing this process, the old skin peels off, the skin underneath heals and new tissues are regenerated, resulting in youthful-looking skin. Chemical peel treatments can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, rejuvenating our skin.

There are different types of chemical peel treatments available, such as:

  • AFA Clay Peel – uses acidified amino acids (AFA) and rare earth clay to cleanse and refresh the skin
  • Jessner’s Peel – reduces fine lines, improves skin elasticity and tone and has anti-aging properties
  • Mandelic Acid Peel – tightens pigmentation and reveres the effects of sun damage, acne scarring and melasma
  • Retinol Peel – rejuvenates the skin and reduces the appearance of acne scars
  • Salicylic Peel – can be used to treat inflamed acne, fine lines, wrinkles, blotchy skin, uneven skin and oily skin; best for people who suffer from chronic acne
  • Sensi Peel – generally used on sensitive ethnic skin to treat hyperpigmentation and sun damage
  • Obagi Blue Peel – used to enhance the skin’s texture while reducing the appearance of age spots, fine lines and skin discolourations
  • TCA Peel – can be used on the face and hands to exfoliate the skin superficially, correct pigmentation and smooth out fine lines; perfect for darker skin types
  • PCA Peel – done to treat acne, uneven pigmentation, fine wrinkles, sun damaged skin and blemishes; exfoliates, tightens and refreshes the skin’s texture

Laser Skin Resurfacing

If you’re looking for a skin rejuvenation procedure that lasts longer than chemical peel treatments, laser skin resurfacing is right for you. Using a CO2 of factional laser, dead skin is removed through vaporization. As with a chemical peel, once the old layers of skin are removed, new, brighter skin emerges, giving you a fresh face. Laser skin resurfacing is also used to treat wrinkles, sun damage, acne and scars. You will not feel the laser as it penetrates your skin because you will be given local anesthesia or IV sedation.

Chemical peel treatments and laser skin resurfacing provide a safe way to rejuvenate your skin before summer.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for each procedure, so it’s best to contact a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon and create a skin program that best suits your needs.
