At Skin Technology, we are in the business of making you look your best year round. We offer a variety of procedures for individuals, but we serve our patient’s best interests first. Keeping that philosophy in mind, below are a list of procedures that we suggest you AVOID booking during the summer months.
Photo Facials: While they are excellent for acne scars and improving collagen, photo-facials run a risk of hyper-pigmentation exacerbated by sun exposure. Unless you are religious about reapplying your sun screen save this procedure for the winter
Leg Vein Treatments: The risk of increased vein damage can occur when you combine sun exposure with leg vein treatments. In addition, the required post treatment compression garments can be uncomfortable to wear in very hot weather.
Laser Hair Removal (not offered at our facility): Of course smooth legs and skin would be fantastic for the summer, but with the time required between appointments for re-growth, laser hair removal can be difficult cosmetically in the summer when short skirts and dresses are the outfit of choice. We suggest that you keep to your traditional hair removal routine and save laser hair for the winter months.
Skin Technology strives to give you the best advice and treatment options for protecting your skin in the long run. In our next blog post, we will discuss treatments that are safe for the summer months and beyond.
