Repairing Your Skin After the Summer Season

Summer is the time to be outside. The fresh air, the warmer weather, and the rays of sunshine all feel so good at the time. After all the beach trips, BBQ’s, festivals, and travel though, your skin may be feeling different compared to the start of summer.

In order to get your skin back to looking and feeling its best, there are many skincare products, treatments, and facials you can look into. We have compiled some of the best ways to repair your skin after the summer season below.

Replenishing Moisture

After your fun in the sun, your skin can be left feeling dehydrated. Not drinking enough water, sweating a lot and being out in the hot sun all cause your skin to dehydrate. The first step to getting your skin back to being hydrated is to drink more water. Drinking H20 is going to help keep your skin fresh, hydrated, and healthy, but if you want an extra boost, we have a few other things you can try.

Moisturising your skin with moisturising cream is a great and easy way to help get you skin looking hydrated and healthy. Adding a moisturising product into your daily morning and evening routine is a great way to get into a habit of applying moisturiser regularly.

If you’re looking a new product to help replenish moisture in your skin, our Peptide Moisturising Cream is an effective option.

For those looking for a treatment, rather than a skincare product, consider a HydraFacial. HydraFacial treatments are a popular way to help replenish the moisture you’ve lost in your skin. They help cleanse, exfoliate, clear congested pores, and deliver nourishing serums to your skin during the treatment.

Targeting Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a common condition where patches of skin become darker than your natural skin tone. It is caused by the UV rays hitting your skin, which causes melanin to produce in your body. Although the condition is harmless, a lot of people look for treatment to get hyperpigmentation reduced for a brighter, more even skin tone.

Hyperpigmentation can still form even if you’ve been wearing sunscreen all summer long, and can stay on your skin for years. One way to treat hyperpigmentation is through laser treatments. Here at Victoria’s Cosmetic Medical Clinic, we offer a range of treatments for hyperpigmentation.

Pico Genesis and Pico Genesis FX are advanced pico-toning medical facials used to specifically address pigmentation. Pico Genesis uses ultra-short “photoacoustic” pulses of light to remodel the lower layers of your skin reducing pigmentation in just one to two treatments for many cases. The Pico Genesis FX is a more intense version of the Pico Genesis treatment. During your consultation, we’ll be able to assess your skin and advise on which treatment is best for your unique skin!

Reducing Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Formation of free radicals within the skin, which are prompted by UV rays, damage elastin fibres in the skin. This is what causes signs of visible aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging in the skin. UV exposure seems to be responsible for 80% of visible facial aging signs. There are ways to remedy this though. Treatments like Laser Genesis Skin Therapy can help you reduce signs of aging, so you can look and feel younger!

Our Laser Genesis Skin Therapy is a medical grade laser treatment that helps treats visible signs of aging, reduce excessive redness, produce new collagen, balance uneven skin tone, and help to diminish and improve scars.

Smoothing Skin Texture

After spending all summer out in the sun, your skin can start to become dry and rough. The UVB rays from the sun damage skin cells. These damaged skin cells then stay in your face, leaving your skin to feel rough and dry. Exfoliating the skin is the best way to help get your skin feeling smoother and healthier, as it scrubs away all the dead skin, leaving you with a healthier look and feel.

Peels are great ways to smooth and polish your skin. At Victoria’s, we offer the Fire & Ice Facial, which bridges the gap between a mild facial and an invasive peel. You’ll notice glowing, younger-looking skin with no downtime.

For those looking for something a bit more, we also offer The PRODIGY PEEL SYSTEM, which is a medical-grade chemical peel that is designed to help provide a smoother and clearer skin complexion. These minimally invasive peel systems have different strengths and are intended to help correct skin imperfections, such as texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Following your peel, you’ll notice a revitalised, radiant complexion.
