Summer is finally on its way. Lots of us get excited and hope for sunshine in the UK – although it isn’t always guaranteed! Or, we look forward to going abroad with friends and family, and it’s easy for the excitement to cause a complete overlook of skin protection and care.

UV is one of the most common causes of premature ageing and accelerates the ageing process at an alarming rate. Therefore, without the correct skin care and protection, you could age much quicker than anticipated. 

Skin Treatments For Healthy Skin

You should wear SPF every day, even during cloudy or rainy weather. No sunshine doesn’t mean no UV! SPF also helps protect against free radicals and pollutants that lead to skin damage and premature ageing. UV in high concentration damages the main proteins in your skin, elastin, and collagen. Long-term UV over-exposure is extremely hard to reverse, even by putting collagen and elastin back into your skin in high concentration. 

Therefore it’s crucial to take care of your skin before, after, and during the summer months and keep it protected; here are the best skin treatments to keep your skin happy and healthy before and during the summer months.

Microneedling

shannon beauty booster before and afterMicroneedling is one of the most popular treatments available at our clinic, helping tackle and treat various skin concerns and even hair loss. It’s also known as ‘collagen induction therapy’.

Microneedling can be done manually using a hand-held roller but is commonly in a pen format nowadays. Microneedling involves extremely fine needles that can be changed in depth, ranging from 0.2 – 3mm long depending on the treatment area.

The purpose of this treatment is to stimulate your body’s healing response and increase the amount of collagen and elastin production. By creating micro-injuries to the layers of skin, your body’s healing response is kick-started. By boosting this, your skin is instantly rejuvenated, guaranteeing a firmer, clearer complexion.

Although microneedling does involve needles, they’re so fine this is more of an uncomfortable treatment as opposed to painful. To make the treatment more comfortable, the skin is cleansed beforehand, and numbing cream is applied, so you should not feel pain during your treatment. Microneedling can help with;

  • Acne 
  • Pigmentation
  • Skin texture 
  • Ageing
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Texture irregularities
 

It’s important to note, that while this treatment is fantastic for the summer months, you should avoid direct or intense sun exposure after this treatment for a few days.

Tear Trough Filler

Summer is the season of wearing no makeup as much as possible. You want to look refreshed, awake and your skin plump and full of life. A great way to achieve this ‘no makeup makeup’ look is with tear-trough filler.

Tear trough filler targets only the undereye area using dermal filler. As we age, under our eyes can hollow and become sunken, giving the appearance of constant tiredness and drooping. Tear trough filler restores the volume in your under-eyes and plumps out the area, resulting in an awake, bouncy undereye. 

This treatment will transform your complexion, and make you look fresh-faced during those summer months where you just want to wake up and go! Tear trough filler is not an invasive treatment, and can be administered via needle or cannula, with minimal downtime but almost instant results.

Polynucleotides

Polynucleotides are a form of skin booster that gives your skin a cocktail of goodness to the deepest levels of your skin. Polynucleotides contain no dermal filler, making them more of a ‘tweakment’, and contain only a high concentration of the natural proteins in your skin.

This treatment almost instantly smooths fine lines and wrinkles on the skin and restores the youthful plumpness and glow to the skin, making it a perfect treatment for the summertime. Polynucleotides are not your average skin booster, they are biostimulators, this means that they trigger your skin’s regenerative process, almost acting as a restorative medicine for your epidermis. Polynucleotides are an injectable treatment, but they are non-invasive and have minimal downtime. The only after-effects you may experience are redness, tenderness, and in rare cases, slight bruising. If you do experience any of these, they should disappear within 24-48 hours. 

Profhilo

Another treatment that is great for achieving that ‘no makeup makeup’ look. Profhilo is a hybrid of dermal filler and skin boosters, combining the two to create a cocktail of hydrating, plumping, and firming properties for your skin. Prohilo’s high concentration of HA (Hyaluronic Acid) makes it one of the most hydrating treatments available in the world of aesthetics. 

Unlike other treatments, Profhilo is injected into the same set points on the face for each individual, to stimulate collagen and elastin production most effectively. Profhilo is most commonly used on the face, but can also be used on the hands, neck, and decolletage areas due to its anti-wrinkle and firming properties. 

Profhilo helps improve;

  • Hydration
  • Elasticity
  • Firmness
  • Complexion
  • Texture

Get Summer Ready!

All of these treatments are the perfect skin saviour for summer. Prevention is just as important as treating already visible skin concerns and is key to maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin. With summer quickly approaching, we urge you to book in for your treatments ASAP to be sunshine-ready!

It is important to note, that with all of the treatments listed above, you should not be exposed to intense sunlight or overexposure for the first 24 hours to avoid irritation. For more information or to enquire about a treatment, get in touch here.
