Spending time outside this summer is going to be especially popular this year as we emerge from pandemic-related restrictions. Even though most people understand the need to protect their skin from the sun, many of us pay less attention to the importance of keeping the skin hydrated. You can prepare your skin with a “summer-safe” skin treatment at our Vancouver-area medspa.
Combining your daily skincare regimen with targeted med spa procedures can keep your skin looking healthy and youthful throughout the year. Below, we highlight some of the most effective and popular treatments that hydrate, exfoliate, and tighten the skin.
Start With an Advanced Skin Analysis
It’s important that you get the appropriate treatments to address your specific skin concerns. At YES Medspa, our aesthetic specialists perform an Advanced Skin Analysis—thoroughly assessing the skin’s condition before recommending treatments and products to optimize your skin’s appearance and health this summer. The series of assessments includes the VISIA® Complexion Analysis system.
Skin Treatments for Summer
What are some of the best treatments to prepare your skin for the summer? We highlight a few of them here:
A HydraFacial’s unique, nourishing treatment cleanses, exfoliates, and infuses the skin with moisturizing serums to give your complexion a healthy, vibrant glow. Using a patented technology called Vortex-Fusion®, HydraFacial combines the effectiveness of medical treatment with the soothing experience of a premium facial. It’s an ideal way to jumpstart the summer with refreshed skin.
Our extensive menu of chemical peels includes a treatment for virtually every person’s unique skin concerns and cosmetic goals. In addition to addressing facial skin, chemical peels can improve the appearance of the neck, décolletage, and hands.
Some people believe you should avoid peels during the summer, but that’s not always necessary. Our specialists can recommend superficial to moderate peels that allow patients to enjoy some sunshine as long as they apply an SPF 30+ broad-spectrum sunscreen.
With the return of social group gatherings held outdoors, such as weddings or other events, you’ll want to look your best. Forma, radio-frequency laser skin tightening treatments can increase your skin’s firmness, elasticity, and tone without downtime.
Forma is licensed by Health Canada and uses radiofrequency energy to trigger the production of new collagen and elastin, the building blocks of smooth, tight, youthful-looking skin.
Maintaining Your Results
Whether you get one of the treatments described above or another procedure, maintaining your results with a customized skincare regimen at home is essential. That includes using healthy mineral makeup and medical-grade products that are ideal for your skin type.
