What spa treatments can I get done in the summer?
It's the age old question. What spa treatments can I get done in the summer? We all love our facials, our laser treatments and the results we get in the Fall, Winter and Spring. But what about the Summer?
Summer time is sun, fun, chlorine, travel, poolside sunbathing, beach time, lounging and... aren't you supposed to stay OUT of the SUN when you get a laser treatment?
Let me ease your mind.
You may or may not have a vacation planned, you may or may not plan on spending time in the sun. But let's just say, as long as you get sun in moderation, wear sunscreen and even a wear a cute straw hat with a wide brim you will be just fine.
Lasers have come a LONG way and they are safer than they used to be, but...you still have to follow the rules....
Something that is never optional is, staying out of the sun and/or avoiding the sun before a laser treatment, especially a LASER HAIR treatment. Please, AVOID sun exposure and tanning two weeks before and two weeks after a laser hair removal treatment — period. "OMG, that is like almost the whole summer"...
The problem is the sun makes skin more sensitive to heat, and using a laser on heat sensitive skin can cause hyper-pigmentation, burns and even scarring.
We do not want you to ever experience hyperpigmentation and we never want to burn or scar you. Help us help you get the best treatment.
When deciding "WHAT BODY PART CAN I GET TREATED WITH A LASER?" Let's take a quick look at what parts of our bodies are exposed the most to the sun. If you are a committed runner or outdoor enthusiast, and you know you live in the sun, you won't wear a hat and you always run with a tank top on, let's avoid treating those exposed areas with a laser if we can, just for the summer (JUNE & JULY and maybe a little bit of AUGUST). Want to get a bikini treatment or maybe treat your underarms? The answer is YES! These areas are less prone to sun exposure and the areas to focus on if you are someone who chooses to enjoy the summer sun.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO DO IS TO WEAR SUNSCREEN. Why are you booking a treatment with a laser to eliminate sunspots, brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles if you aren't going to at least wear an SPF 30 to protect your investment? Your skin is your biggest organ and it needs the most protection. How many older people have you seen with skin damage, thick skin on their faces or brown spots on their forearms... they loved the sun too. Who doesn't love feeling sun-kissed, looking like we spent time lounging around on a beach and looking like we don't have a care in the world? Sometimes getting a great spray tan is the answer. We want you to look and feel amazing, we just don't want you to have any sun damage.
Just a thought...
Because laser hair removal opens your pores, your skin will be extra vulnerable and susceptible to infection following a treatment, so you’ll want to take certain precautions while waiting for your skin to heal.
Don't laugh but... this is the perfect excuse to skip a day or two at the gym. Please do not go to the gym, use a sauna, get in a jacuzzi or go swimming in the ocean or jump in a swimming pool for at least two days. Give us two days and then it is completely safe to exercise and get your sweat on. Oh wait... one more tiny detail... Please... refrain from exfoliating your skin for at least five days following a treatment. So toss those shower loofahs, sponges and body scrubs to the side until your skin has had ample time to heal.
If you take these suggestions to heart and follow the rules you will get the results you want, avoid damage or issues, and you will be able to get on with your summer the way you planned it out.
Here are some treatments you can consider in the summer:
HYDRAFACIALS- Just one of the "favorite treatments" at My Med Spa... not only on your face but have you considered your back? If you are wearing more skin revealing clothes and you want gorgeous, glowing, vibrant skin, consider a BACK-CIAL. Be acne free on your back especially if you are applying SPF all over... Perfect treatment in conjunction with a simple Esthemax Jelly Mask.
CHEMICAL PEELS- My Med Spa offers many levels of Chemical Peels for our clients.
VI PEELS, IS PRO PEEL 2, IS PRO PEEL 3 and many others. Depending on what you want to target or the results you want, chemical peels are a great solution and replacement to lasers. Chemical Peels come in a range of strengths, from “lunchtime” peels that result in few to no side effects and offer a quick complexion boost, all the way to deep chemical peels that you’ll want to have done long before you plan on heading to any special summer events. The stronger the peel, the more facial peeling you can expect, so plan your peel with your summer schedule in mind.

OXYGENEO facial or back-cial- This device and this treatment make all the ladies swoon. You have to try it. Better than BASIC microdermabrasion, the perfect way to soften the fine lines, wrinkles, treat dry skin, exfoliate and make your skin look sun-kissed and... you actually look like you are walking around with a SNAPCHAT filter. Dry or damaged skin can quickly develop an uneven texture. Daily exfoliation can help, but exfoliating at home isn’t always enough, plus home exfoliating treatments can be too harsh on the skin and only increase the damage... come see us and let us pamper your skin and let you relax and unwind. Ask for OXYGENEO by name.
