Summer is a great time to spend as much time as possible out of doors, reveling in the beautiful Virginia weather, whether in your backyard or in the water. While your skin may take on a seasonal glow during this time, it may have more do with the sheen of sweat that crops up every time you head out. And behind that sweat lies a fair number of damaged skin cells and debris littering the surface of your skin.
At Epitome Medical Aesthetics we have a number of tools that can rejuvenate and refresh your skin, but we’re particularly excited about our HydraFacial, a unique treatment that cleanses, extracts, and hydrates your skin.
If you’d like to explore what many of our Virginia Beach area clients have already discovered, here’s a look at why our HydraFacial is the perfect summer refresher for your skin.
The price of summer fun
During the summer, the odds are that you’re outside taking advantage of the long days as winter looms off in the not-so-distant future. This time under the sun may feel great, but it can also do a number on your skin.
First, the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays are mercilessly pounding down on you and have a way of sneaking past even your most ardent efforts at screening yourself from them. This radiation breaks down your skin cells faster than any other force and creates the most damage.
As well, the sweat we mentioned earlier not only clogs your pores, it encourages more debris to stick to your face.
Lastly, your constant transition from the outdoors to the dry coolness of air conditioning can leave your skin dry and dull.
While we encourage you to spend time being active out of doors, you need to offset your exposure with a little TLC for your skin. And that’s where HydraFacial comes in.
The three step
HydraFacial is a multipronged approach that takes care of your skin from multiple angles to give you a fresh new glow that boasts vitality and good health — in just 30 minutes.
To start, we thoroughly cleanse your skin in a process that exfoliates and resurfaces the surface, removing damaged and dead skin cells to make room for healthier growth.
Next, using painless suction, we extract any dead skin cells and impurities from deep within your pores, which typically become clogged during the hot months of summer. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, these blockages can exacerbate the issue, leaving you with unsightly blemishes. Conversely, if you have naturally dry skin, your clogged pores are unable to hydrate and nourish your skin properly.
Once your skin is free from the impurities and dead skin cells that come with summer, we hydrate your skin with intense moisturizers and then seal in the results with specialized serums infused with antioxidants and enzymes to guard your new glow.
One of the great things about HydraFacial is that we can use different serums based on your skin type and your goals. With the Brightalive Boost serum, we can minimize the appearance of discolorations and maximize glow. With the Growth Factor Boost serum, we can tackle the fine lines and wrinkles that have cropped up on your face. The Dermabuilder Boost recharges your skin with a combination of peptides, and the Britenol Boost promotes a more even complexion by reducing sun spots.
The end result for any of these products is skin that glows from the inside out, giving you a healthier, more vibrant appearance.
