Summer is an ideal time for a lot of cosmetic treatments, but as you may know, not all treatments are created equal. For example, many laser treatments require recovery time away from the sun for proper healing. Fortunately, there are an array of services, from microneedling to body contouring, available at Skin Care Institute that are not only safe but also perfect for the summertime, including:
SYLFIRM X RF microneedling
Microneedling is about to become your best kept summer beauty secret. With a clearer, smoother complexion after just a few sessions, you might feel inspired to rock a makeup-free look all summer long. Skin Care Institute is proud to now carry the latest cutting-edge microneedling system: SYLFIRM X RF microneedling. SYLFIRM X RF uses Regional Regeneration Radio Repeated Pulse (RP) microneedling and is the only RF (radiofrequency) microneedling technology that has been approved for the safe treatment of neovascularities, such as melasma, rosacea and other skin discolorations. SYLFIRM X RF is also clinically proven to address wrinkles, redness, acne scars and large pores, and improve the overall look and tone of skin with minimal to no downtime. Its unique technology can penetrate the dermal layer of skin without damaging the tissue, making it a safe and comfortable treatment for the summer. You should see immediately visible results after just one 20- to 30-minute treatment, though a series of treatments is recommended for optimal results.
While many people flock to chemical peels during the winter months, there are many benefits of choosing the summertime for your next peel. For one, chemical peels are great for oil control, helping to clear up a shiny, greasy complexion when humidity is at its peak. Peels also provide fast results with very little downtime, so you can be ready for your next social outing in just a few days. We proudly offer a trusted selection of medical-grade chemical peels, including SkinMedica® Illuminize Peel®, Vitalize Peel® and Rejuvenize Peel™. To meet your unique needs, our peel selection offers a variety of intensities and benefits. If you’re looking for a fresh start for your skin, chemical peels work wonders to improve sun damage, reduce pores, improve texture and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. It’s important to remember that in the days and weeks following your peel, your skin will be sensitive, so make sure to practice proper sunscreen application with a broad-spectrum SPF every single day.
Ultherapy is a great summertime treatment because results are not affected by sun exposure, and with no downtime, you’re free to resume your daily activities immediately after treatment. Ultherapy is an ideal treatment to try if you’ve always wanted tighter contours but are wary of surgery. Using non-invasive ultrasound energy, Ultherapy stimulates the deep structural support layers of the skin to tighten and smooth loose, sagging skin on the face, neck and chest. Your subtle uplifted benefits should unfold over the course of two to three months, with continued improvement for up to six months as new elastic collagen builds.
We’ve got good news: It’s not too late to achieve your ideal summer body! If you’re looking to get rid of unwanted pockets of fat, CoolSculpting may be just the treatment you need. CoolSculpting non-invasive fat reduction treatment can freeze away hard-to-lose fat on almost any area of your body, including the outer/inner thighs, abdomen, flanks and buttocks. We’re thrilled to offer the most advanced CoolSculpting technology, CoolSculpting Elite, because it features dual applicators, allowing you to treat two areas at once. What’s more, the applicators can grab up to 18% more tissue and freeze 20-25% of targeted fat cells per session. Without downtime, CoolSculpting Elite helps to reduce fat cells gradually, with visible results in as early as three weeks and the most dramatic results appearing three months after your last treatment.
