When the new year arrives, bursting with lots of summer sun and fun, it’s easy to lose sight of your beauty regimen. Don’t do it! Higher temperatures dehydrate the skin. Increased humidity throws sweat and sebaceous (oil) glands into high gear. That process makes oily skin look oilier and dry skin look rougher and drier. When you pile on additional stressors such as the chlorine in swimming pools, and air conditioning, it’s no wonder skin doesn’t always look its best in the summertime.
Fortunately, you can do something about it … with the help of Austin Clinic. Below is a list of our Top 5 Skin Treatments for 2024. They are perfect for summer skin because they don’t require that you stay out of the sun or miss any of the fun.
Biostimulation: Creating the Collagen and Elastin You Want
Summer, winter, spring or autumn, there are signs of facial ageing that confront us all: loss of skin tone, compromised skin elasticity, and decreased facial volume. Biostimulation by injection helps correct all these problems by increasing production of collagen and elastin.
Biostimulator injections are administered in a pre-determined, 5-point pattern on the face. The stimulator triggers collagen production, the protein responsible for skin’s elasticity and volume, leading to smoother skin and brighter tone. One of the most appealing aspects of biostimulation is the way in which results improve over time, and may last up to six months.
Note: Biostimulation is not appropriate for all people, such as women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. A member of our team will discuss this with you.
HydraFacial – Making a Good Thing Better
Many of our clients swear by HydraFacial to keep their skin looking summertime sensational. One of the aspects that makes HydraFacial so special is that it can be tailored to unique skin needs and goals.
HydraFacial technicians use a patented device and four-step process – exfoliation, cleansing, extraction, and hydration – to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, age spots, oil, blackheads, enlarged pores, and even sun damage.
HydraFacial is a painless treatment that doesn’t irritate skin.
For clients seeking next-level skincare, we recommend the HydraFacial Deluxe. It is an upgrade on the original treatment and includes a stronger glycolic peel, an after-mask treatment, and a photon light treatment. You will go home with everything you need for a 10-minute home treatment that delivers peptides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants to your newly revealed skin.
VSkin Skin Booster – Skin Hydration and Nourishment
Like you, your skin may need a little extra nourishment and hydration in response to summer sun and temperatures. The answer is mesotherapy, transdermal injections that rejuvenate the skin. VSkin uses mesotherapy to deliver precise amounts of moisture and nutrition to targeted areas in the skin.
The VSkin serum can be injected around the mouth area, neck and jawline, forehead, and brows. It soothes, heals, and rejuvenates compromised skin by softening fine lines and wrinkles, promoting skin regeneration, and improving skin elasticity, among other benefits.
Go into The Light with LED
LED therapy harnesses the power of light with a spectrum wavelength that penetrates various layers of skin. Different lights are used in combination to treat a client’s specific concerns. Red light therapy stimulates skin cells called fibroblasts, which in turn help in the production of collagen. This makes red light perfect for targeting loose skin, wrinkles, and fine lines.
One of the reasons LED light treatments are so popular is that they are quick. In just 20 minutes, skin develops a natural-looking glow that begs for selfies. Also, unlike other options for facial rejuvenation, they have fewer side effects.
Here Comes the Sun – Are You Ready?
If you care about your skin, it’s always the right season for sun protection. Sunscreen helps protect the skin from UV rays by absorbing or reflecting them. On the beauty side, sunscreen can lessen the probability that sun exposure will leave you with skin discolouration and sunspots later in life. From a health perspective, sunscreen reduces your risk of sunburn and skin cancer. Something as simple as applying sunscreen multiple times throughout the day can significantly lower your risk of being one of the 150,000 Australians being diagnosed with skin cancer each year.
Which sunscreen is best? We recommend Aspect Sun, from Advanced Skin technology. Offering much-needed protection along with skin-loving formulations, these products will keep your skin glowing all summer and beyond.
