3 Skin Care Procedures to Avoid Before Heading to the Beach
- Posted on: Jun 30 2017
The summertime is all about spending as much time outside with those that you love. Whether you enjoy the barbecues, laying out, or swimming the most, it’s no secret that although it’s fun to be at the beach, it can cause severe sun damage to your skin. And, there are certain procedures that will make your skin more sensitive and prone to sun damage. This article will discuss three procedures you should avoid before heading to the beach this summer. Read on to learn more.
Chemical peels from Allure Skin and Laser are one of the best ways that we can treat skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and fine lines and wrinkles. However, due to the nature of chemical peels, they make your skin more sensitive and prone to getting further sun damage for at least a week or two afterwards— counteracting the results in the process. If you want to get a chemical peel, make sure to schedule it so that you won’t be in the sun for at least a week.
By exfoliating and removing the top few layers of your skin, microdermabrasion is effective at treating things like sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars.
However, similar to chemical peels, microdermabrasion will make your skin susceptible to sun damage and burning. After you get microdermabrasion, your skin will already feel sensitive to the touch, so the last thing you will want to do is expose it to sun exposure for at least two weeks.
Laser Spot Removal
The great news about laser spot removal from Allure Skin and Laser is that we can target sun spots and age spots and get rid of them for good. However, if you get this procedure and then go lay out in the sun for a few hours, they are more likely to come back. Remember that when you have spots removed, it doesn’t mean you’re in the clear for forever.
Here at Allure Skin and Laser, we offer our patients a variety of non-invasive skin treatments to help with things like scarring, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. And although these treatments are extremely effective, they can make your skin more sensitive and prone to burning. If you would like to have one of these treatments done, make sure that you won’t be spending time outside afterward.
