3 Ways to Refresh Your Skin After Summer

The summer time is a wonderful time of year for fun in the sun and enjoying the outdoors to the fullest. While this is great for creating memories, it’s not exactly great for the skin. The sun causes damage to the skin that can leave your skin looking aged and tired. The following treatments are just a few ways that you can reverse some of the damage that summer left behind.

Cynosure Elite Laser

The Elite laser addresses a variety of skin concerns for all different kinds of skin types. The Elite laser is particularly fantastic at treating the signs of sun damage such as age spots and unwanted pigmentation. After a treatment series with the Elite laser, your skin will have a much clearer and even tone.


Chemical peels are great for effectively exfoliating the skin and encouraging cell turnover. Increased cell turnover helps the skin to heal faster, therefore allowing pigmentation to heal and eventually flake away. In addition to helping with unwanted pigmentation, the Micropeel is also quite effective in improving the texture of the skin.

Juvederm & Juvederm Voluma ®

Once the pigmentation and texture of the skin are addressed, you may be looking to add a little bit of youthful volume to certain areas. Skin looks more youthful with a little bit of “plumpness” added back in. Juvederm can be used in the lips and nasolabial folds and Voluma is great for providing a lifted effect in the cheeks.
