SUMMER SKINCARE: Treat Your Skin, Treat Yourself

May 1, 2024

The summer months are fast approaching, and that means more heat! Swimsuits and beach towels become a staple; sunscreen, sun hats, and water bottles should also be in good supply.

The natural environment and hot, sunny weather do wonders for our mood but can wreak havoc on our skin. Sandy beaches, salty water (or chlorinated, if you’re a pool paddler), and all that sunshine can create wrinkles, fine lines, spots, freckles, and other skin conditions, prematurely aging our skin.

Fortunately, there are more innovative treatments and products today to keep skin glowing, youthful-looking, and healthy than ever before. These are a few to consider before you take on summer.

RADIESSE®
Restore Volume and Smooth Skin
Radiesse® is a calcium hydroxylapatite wrinkle filler for plumping skin and sculpting facial contours — and it works wonderfully, with immediate and long-lasting results. Radiesse® fills lines and wrinkles instantly, and patients can often enjoy up to a year or more of natural-looking improvements, making this quick injection procedure an ideal option for getting summer-ready and enjoying the results for months. 

Radiesse® can provide suppleness by increasing volume and enhancing contours in the cheeks and under the eyes. Smooth out those deep lines (nasolabial folds) and wrinkles in your lower face and fill sags in the jawline that create an aged look. Radiesse® also reduces the appearance of veins and wrinkles in the hands.

How is it Possible?
Skin benefits from collagen and elastin production, which help maintain strength and elasticity and keep skin looking youthful. Over time, aging and environmental factors (think sun damage) make it harder for the body to produce collagen and elastin, and skin begins to wrinkle, sag, and lose volume and strength. Radiesse® injections integrate into the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production — a natural body process that renews skin structure for natural-looking results. 

THERMAGE® 
For Beautifully Tighter Skin
Thermage administers radiofrequency energy deep into the skin and promotes the healthy growth of new collagen for noticeably firmer skin. Thermage® skin tightening is non-invasive and only requires one treatment to improve lax or crepey skin and smooth lines and wrinkles. Results are noticeable within a day of treatment, and the areas that received Thermage® will continue becoming firmer over time — with results lasting up to two years.

Thermage® promotes skin that is more revitalized and youthful. Virtually anywhere on the body that could benefit from skin tightening is a candidate for Thermage® treatment. Loose skin on the stomach, knees, or legs can be tighter and firmer. Wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and forehead improve. Fuller contours and smoother skin help restore youthful vitality.

Science Meets Beauty
Thermage®
leverages science to target signs of aging with precision and accuracy. Radiofrequency energy accesses the deeper layers of the skin to create a separation between water molecules and collagen, generating an immediate contraction that causes the skin to tighten and encourages collagen production. As the body produces more collagen over time, the skin gets firmer and increasingly youthful.

Taking Care of What You Have
While it is advantageous to have treatments such as Radiesse®  and Thermage® to help restore and revitalize skin, one of the best ways of maintaining youthful and healthy skin is to take care of it! Following a routine with professional skincare products will help the skin look and feel healthy, young, and resilient for many years. And combining skincare products with anti-aging treatments will help keep skin beautiful for a lifetime. These are some products to consider for maintaining glowing, supple skin. 

HELIOCARE®
Help skin fight off the aging effects of free radicals and stay fresh and youthful. Free radicals are unstable atoms that can damage cells and accelerate aging. They are naturally formed during metabolism or by exposure to environmental toxins — alcohol, tobacco, chemicals, processed meats — they exist everywhere. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, and dietary supplements like Heliocare® feature powerful antioxidant properties that help reinforce the skin’s defense against the harmful effects of free radicals. 

Heliocare® has an exclusive, clinically proven natural ingredient — the Polypodium leucotomos fern — a plant that was once aquatic but evolved to exist on land and developed protection from the free radicals in the environment and their harsh effects. Polypodium leucotomos extracts (PLE) from this resilient plant contain antioxidants that can help the skin protect itself. Adding Heliocare® as a daily dietary supplement can help promote younger-looking skin. Conveniently purchase Heliocare here.

VITAMIN C
It is no secret that vitamin C has several health benefits, including boosting immunity and healing, increasing antioxidant levels, fighting inflammation, improving iron absorption, and more. We do not produce vitamin C, so we must include this vital nutrient in our daily routines — and there are several effective formulations and supplements available. 

GLOWBIOTICS has mastered the science of topical probiotics and carries medical-grade probiotic skincare solutions, including Advanced Vitamin C Brightening Serum, for tightening and brightening the complexion. Learn more and purchase this for your summer beach satchel here.

SkinCeuticals carries a line of Vitamin C serums that provide advanced environmental protection, promote a naturally even skin tone, and improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Discover the numerous benefits of SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic serum and purchase it for your summer skincare regimen here.

SUN PROTECTION
Advances in technology do not only apply to skin treatments — products that protect the skin against the harmful UV effects of the sun are also state-of-the-art today. There has never been a better time to enjoy the sunshine safely and have skin that has never looked or felt more healthy, radiant, and young. Consider having any of these products on hand when the summer months arrive.  

Colorescience uses 100% pure, natural minerals, antioxidants, and botanicals, no chemicals, to produce potent, clinically tested formulations for long-term skin health. Their bestselling Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield line is a summer must-have, and you can get it here.

Elta MD sun care products are formulated for every skin type, lifestyle, and condition and have become trusted and widely used by dermatologists to protect, renew, and heal skin health. Keep their UV Sheer SPF 50 on hand this summer — and get it here. 

Skinbetter Science uses proprietary technologies and clinically tested product formulations. They leverage advanced chemistry to help skincare products do more — as evidenced in their Sunbetter TONE SMART SPF Sunscreen lotion, their highest level of broad spectrum protection in a tone-adapting, creamy lotion that provides a hint of color.

  • Facial aging causes the gradual loss of collagen, elastin, tissue, fat and bone. Fat loss in the face causes the cheeks to appear sunken, the temples & submalar region to look hollow, and the brows to droop.

The injectors at Shino Bay Cosmetic Dermatology are excited to offer an innovative treatment that will restore lost fat, exactly where you want it.😍

Renuva can safely and effectively replenish fat loss anywhere in the body where fat naturally exists, including your face, neck, décolletage, hands and other areas of your body.☑️

If you are interested in learning more about this treatment, I would love to spend some time with you to evaluate if RENUVA is right for you.💙

  • Sculptra has deepened my understanding of the cellular aging process, and since 2009, I’ve seen its remarkable ability to combat aging by preserving bone architecture, enhancing fat contours, and improving skin structure and function. While misplaced Sculptra injections can pose risks, I empathize with my plastic surgeon colleagues who caution against its use out of concern.

To educate my patients and ensure clarity, I want to address some key points. Unlike fillers, Sculptra delivers gradual, enduring results that effectively slow down architectural changes in skin, fat, and bone when injected correctly. Neglecting these changes until a facelift can lead to a prematurely aged appearance, while overusing fillers may result in unnatural looks. Aging is multifaceted, and post-surgical maintenance is crucial.

I’ve observed that patients who opt for Sculptra maintain their youthfulness, often making a facelift look even better. If you’re one of my patients reading this, please share your actual age, perceived age, and Sculptra experience. 

I value my colleagues’ concerns and believe constructive dialogues are vital to finding mutually beneficial solutions.

In preparation for surgery, I advise patients to discontinue Sculptra a year or two in advance and wait a year post-surgery before resuming treatment. While injecting on bone poses no issues, ensuring an injection angle of less than 10 degrees helps target the bone rather than superficial tissues.

I believe that better trainings are needed,  new injectors need to master hyaluronic acid injections prior to learning Sculptra, invest on anatomy classes and plastic surgeons to demonstrate facelifts in non-surgical conferences and teach us how to prepare our patients for their surgical day. We must work together to ensure progress in the aesthetic field. #sculptra #plla #plasticsurgery #facelifts #progress #workingtogethermakesusbetter #bioregenerativemedicine #functionalaestethics #sculptradialogues #surgicalday #surgicaldaypreparation #getyoungerdontfakeyounger
  • Did you know your blood contains what we call in the industry “liquid gold”?✨

Once separated, your blood’s Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) can be injected or applied topically with microneedling treatments to naturally enhance your skin quality.😍

Let’s talk about it’s uses and benefits:

🔹 Minimization of Dark Circles and Under-Eye Bags: PRP therapy can help reduce the appearance of dark circles and under-eye bags by promoting collagen production and improving skin elasticity in the delicate under-eye area

🔹 Reduced Appearance of Wrinkles: PRP therapy can help diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by promoting skin regeneration and rejuvenation. The growth factors present in PRP can stimulate cellular turnover, leading to smoother, younger-looking skin.

🔹 Enhanced Skin Hydration: PRP therapy can improve skin hydration by stimulating the production of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that helps retain moisture in the skin. Hydrated skin appears plump, radiant, and more youthful.

🔹 Stimulated Hair Growth: In addition to its effects on skin rejuvenation, PRP therapy has also been used to promote hair growth and improve hair density in individuals experiencing hair loss or thinning. By stimulating hair follicles and increasing blood flow to the scalp, PRP therapy may help reverse the signs of aging associated with hair loss.

🔹 Long-lasting Results: While individual results may vary, many individuals experience long-lasting benefits from PRP therapy for anti-aging purposes. Depending on the treatment protocol and individual factors, results may last several months to over a year, with maintenance sessions recommended for optimal outcomes.
