Have you let the carefree vibe of summer seep into your skin care routine? Are you starting to notice that you have some serious post-summer skin care concerns and you need to step up your after-summer skin care plan? Whether your skin has spent too many hours in the sun, been dipped a little too much in chlorinated pools, or your skin has lost too much moisture in the summer heat, fall is the best time to focus on getting your skin back in balance, treating your problem areas, and returning that hydrated glow to your skin.
There are many over-the-counter products that promise dark spot removal, but the way to absolutely clear up sun spots, age spots, freckles, and melasma is with BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL). After spending time in the sun, the skin’s melanocytes (the cells responsible for giving us our glowing tan) can become damaged and clump pigment irregularly causing dark spots. The BBL Therapy targets the pigment, breaks it up and pushes it to the surface. There is no downtime or hiding out after this treatment. You can return to your normal daily activities right away as your skin pushes out the pigment and it disappears off your skin. Goodbye Summer Sun-Spots….. Hello Radiant Skin!
Post-summer skin is usually very dehydrated and in need of deep moisture nourishment. With the harsh winter months looming around the corner, you will want to get hydrated quickly. What you might not realize is that it is impossible for hydrating creams to penetrate into the deep layers of your skin when you have pore clogging oils and cellular debris on the surface. Exfoliation is a simple solution to this problem. Exfoliating also teaches your skin to make better collagen and decreases fine lines and wrinkles in the future.
A proper exfoliation routine should include a light home treatment using a Clarisonic Brush. The brush removes 10x more debris and oil than washing your face with your hands or a washcloth. The most important part of an exfoliation routine is monthly deep exfoliation in the office with Dermaplane. This 30 minute ROXY Med Spa treatment involves removing the dead skin cells from your face and hydrating your thirsty cells with a deep hydrating mask (try our fall fav – pumpkin enzyme mask – for a deeper exfoliation). Want something more aggressive? You can try our SkinMedica peels or schedule a laser treatment with Dr. Grawe to reduce skin wrinkles and discolorations.
Just because you can’t lounge at the pool anymore doesn’t mean you have to lose your summer glow. A 10 minute trip to ROXY Med Spa and you can look like you just got back from vacation – and it’s MUCH safer than tanning beds! Our sunless-spray tan is natural looking and never appears orange.
