How to Boost Your Skin Health for Summer

by | Oct 4, 2022

It’s time to say goodbye to winter, and a dry, damaged winter complexion. If you want to look fabulous for summer, it’s time to get a skin check at Austin Clinic. Healthy skin is beautiful skin, and our experts know how to keep it that way.

Reminder: Healthy breasts are beautiful breasts too. Austin Clinic invites you to be part of Breast Cancer Awareness this month with a self-examination and a visit to your doctor.

Skin Checks: At Home and In-Clinic

Dr Austin likes to say that beautiful skin is a team effort. The skin cancer services we provide at our clinic are complemented and improved by things our patients do at home. This is especially true in the case of skin cancer screening. Our thorough in-clinic exam includes a head-to-toe assessment of your skin, including your face, mouth, scalp, hands, feet, ears, toes, and fingers. A dermatascope may be used to examine moles and any spots that may need further monitoring. In some instances, a biopsy may be appropriate.

We recommend annual in-clinic skin checks for our patients, but many things can change in a year. In between visits to us, we ask that patients monitor their bodies regularly. Fast diagnosis leads to fast treatment and a better chance of a good outcome. The Cancer Council has an outstanding how-to page on self-examination that makes the process incredibly easy. We urge you to use it.

Now that your skin is healthy, let’s work on its beauty …

Don’t Wait to Cleanse, Extract, Hydrate

After sweltering in dry, overheated offices and being trapped in extra layers of clothing to face colder outdoor temperatures, your skin is likely showing its displeasure. Your normally glowing complexion may now have clogged pores, flaky skin, dull skin, or even signs of eczema or psoriasis. HydraFacial Deluxe was designed to help with all these problems. Each step of this bespoke approach to skin rejuvenation targets your skin and your concerns to maximise results and minimise negative reactions. Because it is customisable in many ways, a HydraFacial Deluxe treatment is appropriate for virtually everyone who wants:

  • Hydrated skin
  • Firmer, more toned skin
  • Improved skin texture
  • Smooth complexion
  • Radiant skin tone
  • Reduction of visible fine lines and wrinkles

In just an hour or so, our popular HydraFacial provides the nourishing moisture and hydration that dry skin is desperate for. It transforms your complexion from parched to a fine patina. The HydraFacial includes:

Cleansing and Exfoliation – to remove dead skin and reveal healthy skin beneath.

Acid Peel – a carefully selected chemical peel to gently, but effectively loosen dirt and debris.

Extraction – HydraFacial’s unique vortex capability suctions out clogged pores.

Hydration – Hyaluronic acid and antioxidants nourish and protect your newly revealed skin.

Then it’s time to add the Deluxe. HydraFacial Deluxe treatments conclude with a skin booster of your choice and LED light therapy.
