Your Best Face Forward | Getting Skin Ready For Summer

What does summer mean to you?  For many women, it’s the time of year we’re out and about — the time of year the whole world sees us!  So, take a moment to ask yourself this:  “What am I doing to look my best?”

If you’re not doing much, don’t worry just yet.  Even though summer is less than a month away, there’s still time for a little sprucing up.  Here is our list of the top procedures for getting your skin summer ready:

  • Liposuction: For some women, achieving a beach body is as simple as diet and exercise.  For others, that’s simply not the case.  Countless women deal with unwanted, exercise-resistant fat around the thighs, midsection and back.  For many, Liposuction can be the answer.  Using a special suction tool, we can permanently remove fat from these and other areas, often achieving a slimmer, more proportionate appearance.
  • BOTOX® & Fillers: By far the number-one category in cosmetic treatment, BOTOX Injections and fillers are the go-to wrinkle treatment for countless women.  BOTOX, which is essentially a muscle relaxer, works to prevent intermittent facial creases, while fillers like Restylane® are used to fill in creases that are deeper and more persistent.
  • Microderm: If your skin has seen better days, Microdermabrasion, or “Microderm,” may be the solution.  This treatment uses a stream of fine particles to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin.  This procedure has been shown to improve mild to moderate sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other superficial skin problems.

Summer is Ideal for Minimally-Invasive Work

Patients exploring plastic surgery often ask, “What’s the best time of year for cosmetic work?”  And, while that answer is different for every patient, one Huffington Post contributor outlines popular procedures by season.  When it comes to more invasive work like tummy tucks or breast surgeries, “December is a very popular time to go under the knife,” says the HuffPost article.  But, if patients are looking for minimally-invasive work, summer may be the way to go.  “Most people are unwilling to give up summer vacation,” explains the article.  That’s why their recommended procedures would be “Minor procedures only; Botox, fillers etc.”  So what will you do for yourself this season?
