Prepare for Summertime Cosmetic Treatments

Summer is just around the corner, and it's time to start preparing for all the fun in the sun that comes with it. From beach vacations to pool parties, summer is undoubtedly the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors. However, before you dive into the festivities, it's important to make sure that your skin is looking its best.

Before you see your aesthetician, prepare for the cosmetic treatments you choose to ensure that your skin is glowing, healthy and ready for the season.

Get a Professional Skin Consultation

With so many different cosmetic treatments available, it can be overwhelming to decide which one is right for you. Some popular options include laser hair removal or resurfacing, chemical peels, microneedling and Botox® or filler injections. Always schedule a consultation and skin evaluation with a professional aesthetician to determine which treatments are needed or recommended.

Prepare Your Skin

Once you've decided on a treatment plan, it's time to start preparing your skin. Depending on the treatment you've chosen, you may need to adjust your skincare routine in the weeks leading up to your appointment. For example, if you've opted for a chemical peel, you'll want to avoid using harsh exfoliants and stick to gentle cleansers and moisturizers.

Know What to Avoid

In addition to adjusting your skincare routine, it's also important to avoid certain activities that could irritate your skin. For example, you'll want to avoid sun exposure and tanning beds, as well as activities that could cause your skin to sweat excessively, such as hot yoga. It's also important to avoid using any products that could irritate your skin, such as perfumes, lotions and soaps with harsh ingredients.

Follow Your Aesthetician’s Instructions

On the day of your appointment, be sure to arrive on time and follow any pre-treatment instructions given to you by your provider. Depending on the treatment, you may need to avoid certain activities for a period of time after the appointment. For example, if you've received Botox injections, you'll want to avoid rubbing or massaging the area for at least 24 hours.
