Dr. Cappuccino’s Summer Skin Care Approach

Summer Skin CareNow that it’s summer, we should consider skin care strategies to protect our skin as well as improve the health, quality, and appearance of our skin. When it comes to summer protection, I take a three-point approach: block UV light, hydrate, and use antioxidants.

When blocking UV light we should make wearing sunscreen a daily routine.   If you are going to be out in the sun remember to reapply at least every several hours, especially if you are in the water or sweating.  Wear a hat, a big hat.  I wear a ridiculously oversized hat when I play golf.  I know I stand out a bit, but I don’t care since I know my face, neck and chest are being protected from future wrinkles and skin cancer.  Try to avoid being exposed to midday sun (10am-2pm), and if you are, try to seek some shade.

Water intake and topical moisturizers are two forms of hydration for proper skin care.  Both are important.  Eight 8-ounce glasses of water are recommended each day to help maintain the critical fluid balance of our body and skin and assist in detoxification.  Topical moisturizers to hydrate skin before and after sun exposure are a good idea, especially ones that contain hyaluronic acid.

I use several different topical antioxidant skin care products yearly, but especially in the summer.  UV light causes creation of free radicals in our skin which can lead to photoaging and skin cancer. Use of topical products which contain antioxidants such as vitamin E, ubiquinone, and glutathione can help minimize this damage.

To speed up your skin’s recovery and enhance your results, it’s important to take special care of your skin after your microneedling treatment.

The skincare system optimizes results by delivering essential nutrients to skin at the proper time in the healing process.

Get Your Beauty in Bloom with Microneedling

Cappuccino-5-17-Promo-Web_1Are you ready to get your beauty in bloom for spring? Perhaps winter left you with dull skin, and you’d like to improve texture, fine lines, and acne scars. Microneedling is a wonderful treatment option for patients that aren’t ready for the downtime associated with laser resurfacing treatments.

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine needles to make controlled micro-injuries to your skin. The device we use is the Eclipse MicroPen. The needles of the MicroPen puncture the skin to create channels. The body triggers the skin to respond to these micro-injuries by naturally producing new collagen and elastin to fill the channels. As we age, our bodies slow the production of collagen and elastin. By turning back the clock on this collagen and elastin loss, microneedling offers several benefits.

Benefits of Microneedling

Our microneedling treatments can reverse years of sun damage. The MicroPen targets fine lines, texture, acne scarring, large pores, and minor blemishes. The benefits include smoother, firmer, younger looking skin. The depth of the needle and the number of treatments depend on the area and the desired result of the patient. A series of treatments is typically recommended, about one to two months apart. Recovery time with the MicroPen is minimal. You may experience some redness, tenderness, or minimal swelling the first 24 hours post treatment.

You will notice some immediate improvement after your treatment, and your results will continue to improve over the next 6 to 12 months as the collagen and elastin rebuilds. Contact us to schedule your complimentary consultation for microneedling, and we’ll customize a treatment plan based on your skin goals.
