Summer Tips for Your Skin
- Posted on: Jul 7 2015
Summer is a lovely time to enjoy the great outdoors, but all that sunshine can take its toll on your skin. Fortunately, there are a number of minimally-invasive skin treatments that reverse signs of aging and sun damage, giving you a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance. At Kovanda Plastic Surgery, we offer a number of cosmetic treatments to help you revive skin that has taken a beating over the spring and summer months.
Chemical peels provide full skin exfoliation, while addressing concerns like shallow scarring, pigmentation marks and fine lines. We offer a number of different peel solutions at Kovanda Plastic Surgery, allowing us to customize your treatment to your specific ngeeds. Light peels can be performed over a lunch hour and do not require any downtime. Deeper peels involve some recovery afterward, but they also offer more dramatic, longer-lasting results.
Too much sun can be a culprit in the formation of fine lines and creases on the face. Injectable treatments like Botox and dermal fillers smooth away those lines, giving you a more youthful appearance for the season. Dermal fillers like Radiesse and Restylane are also effective in restoring volume to areas like the cheeks, jawline and lips.
Facial fat transfer
While dermal filler injections offer temporary anti-aging benefits, facial fat transfer provides similar results on a more permanent basis. This procedure involves removal of fat from one area of the body like the abdomen via liposuction, offering body sculpting benefits as well as skin rejuvenation. The fat is then purified and prepared for injection into areas of the face, similar to dermal fillers. The results are typically natural and long-lasting, with permanent results for some patients. Liposuction is also a permanent treatment, if a healthy weight is maintained after the procedure.
Needling is a popular treatment for addressing specific skin issues like stretch marks, brown spots and signs of aging. This treatment can be combined with a serum containing hyaluronic acid or peptides to provide additional benefits. The procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete and while skin will appear red for a number of hours after treatment, there is no recovery period to schedule. Results can last for many months or even years, as the body’s own healing process and collagen production is naturally stimulated by the procedure.
Rejuvenating your skin for the summer season is easier now than ever before, thanks to the many skin treatments available today. Most of these treatments offer fast results with little or no downtime. To learn more about how to refresh your appearance this season, contact Kovanda Plastic Surgery at (855) 337-4367.
