Memorial Day weekend has come and gone- officially kicking off the summer season! After a long weekend of non- stop bbqs, socializing, drinking and summer fun events/activities you may have woken up Tuesday morning feeling like you need to rejuvenate yourself- especially your skin!

What many individuals fail to realize is your skin needs the most rejuvenation during this time of year. Between the overexposure in the sun, the surface of your skin begins to experience natural extremes- whether it’s sweat, sea salt, constant lotions, or drying out, prepping and management of the health of your skin should be priority number one.

As daylight hours are extended and hot temperatures rise, your skin takes a beating from it all. After a long weekend of fun in the sun, your skin has been exposed to much stronger UV rays then it has all year long. The damage from the sun can be severe with fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. This isn’t groundbreaking news but many of us still ignore the seemingly obvious expert advise.

There are many ways to restore your skin and give you a smooth, younger looking appearance even as the sun makes it’s vast attempt to damage. Here are the top skin rejuvenation procedures that can lead you to skin salvation and give you the most fight when battling the sun.

Restylane:

Restylane is an injectable filler that is used to restore smoothness and add volume to your face. Typically used to treat wrinkles around the mouth (laugh lines), below or around the eye (crows feet) and nasolabial folds, this 30 minute procedure offers instant results lasting up to six months. Restylane is a clear gel made of hyaluronic acid that resembles the natural hyaluronic acid that is found in our body. This hyaluronic acid in Restylane is formulated to act like your body’s naturally produced hyaluronic acid leaving you with visibly rejuvenated skin.

Juvederm:

Juvederm is an injectable filler that replenishes your body’s natural depleting supply of hyaluronic acid. This can be caused from age, and over exposure to the sun. The gel is injected into the mid to deep dermis of your skin with a syringe to combat the signs of facial aging. A local anesthesia can be used to numb the area before treatment. This 15-minute procedure requires no down time and has minimal side effects, offering immediate results.

Botox:

Botox is a prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate and severe lines between the brows and around your eyes. Botox works by targeting the muscles that cause unwanted frown lines and crow’s feet and reducing that muscles activity. By reducing the activity of these muscles, you are reducing the appearance of lines.  This 15-minute procedure offers minimal discomfort and no downtime, leaving you with fantastic results.

There is no “one treatment fixes all” when it comes to facial rejuvenation. Treatments are based upon each patient’s individual goals and problem areas. Dr. Vitolo has a extraordinary eye for facial harmony and with a scheduled consultation can help you choose which treatment is best for you.

Don’t let this be you…
