Summer, sun, problem skin? Tips and treatments

With the start of summer on the calendar, summer has now officially arrived. The warm and sun-intensive season has many positive aspects, but it can also be stressful for the skin. Some people are struggling with so-called problem skin, especially now: the skin can be dry or blemished or even tight and itchy. Heat, high UV radiation and chlorine or salt water in particular can stress or irritate them. In addition to the right care and suitable sun protection, there are also various gentle treatments in aesthetic medicine that can support the skin and provide it with important active ingredients and moisture. We show you which treatments are ideal for the summer season.

Humidity is the be-all and end-all in summer

The body and skin need a lot of moisture in summer. On the one hand, this means that you should drink enough. Water or fruit spritzers are best. A high fluid intake also has a positive effect on the appearance of the skin, which often looks plumper and fresher as a result. However, it is generally not possible to provide the skin with targeted care through drinks alone. In addition to moisturizing creams, a treatment with HydraFacial™ is recommended.

The HydraFacial™ first removes dry and dead skin cells from the upper layer of the skin. A special, gentle fruit acid peel (Glysal™ peel) is then applied. It is used to soften impurities in the deep skin channels, which are then removed using the HydraFacial™ vortex attachment. This process enables deep pore cleansing and prepares the skin to be supplied with moisture and active ingredients such as antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and vitamins. This is optimally possible via the open skin channels.

Hyaluronic acid refreshes and also provides moisture

Equally perfect for moisturizing the skin are Hyaluronic acid treatments . The active ingredient is very well tolerated and binds a large amount of liquid. In hyaluronic acid injections, hyaluronic acid is injected under the skin using a fine cannula. It is particularly suitable for treating wrinkles, volume and contours. Tired, stressed and dry skin can also be treated with hyaluronic acid to replenish the moisture deposits inside and thus support the skin’s regeneration.

Cosmeceuticals: precious serums for the skin

Among other things, we offer cosmeceuticals at our institute for deep skin care. These are highly effective cosmetics that provide exceptional care from the inside out. The special serums, creams or lotions are applied to the skin and develop their effect both on and in the skin. They can be easily combined with other treatments at our institute. In order to find out which combination treatments are best suited to your case, we can carry out a precise analysis of your skin in advance. For this we use the deep skin analysis with VISIA® Gen7. If you would like to find out more about cosmeceuticals, take a look at our information pages: skinbetter® and SkinCeuticals® . We also offer high-quality products from Dermalogica®. We would be happy to advise you in detail during a personal consultation in our practice!

What should you avoid in summer?

In principle, there is not one of our services that cannot be carried out in summer. However, some treatments are better and others less suitable for summer. This is mainly due to the increased UV radiation. Some treatments make the skin more sensitive to light, which increases the risk of pigment shift. The right sun protection is therefore all the more important.

Treatments that should probably be carried out outside the summer include, for example, stronger peelings that cause the skin to peel. Fruit acid peels, on the other hand, are very gentle on the skin and can support it very well in summer. Depending on the findings and the desired result, you may therefore prefer to opt for a gentle fruit acid peel and avoid stronger peels in summer.

Laser treatments also usually make the skin more sensitive to light, so it is advisable to carry them out in the fall to spring.

As already mentioned, each treatment is very individual and is discussed in detail in our practice. Whether there are special features to consider in summer or whether we even recommend postponing treatment until the fall depends on many individual factors during a personal consultation.

Beauty treatment before or after your vacation?

For many people, summer vacation is a time to take a break from the stresses of everyday life and work and enjoy some time out and relaxation. If you want to look fresh and refreshed at the start of your vacation, you can have your individual treatment carried out in advance. It also prepares the skin for vacation and the sun. It is also possible to maintain a refreshed and fresh appearance after your vacation by carrying out the treatments afterwards. Exposure to the sun and seawater may also have put additional stress on the skin, so it can certainly use the care.

It depends on you when you want to do something good for your skin. Of course, we will be happy to inform and advise you as to when which treatment may be suitable. What’s more, the gentle treatments can be repeated at any time on request, so you can come to us both before and after your vacation.
