What are the best cosmetic treatments for summer? Our Toronto-based Gidon Aesthetics & MediSpa team can recommend aesthetic treatments to give you a refreshed look in time for the warmer months. We tend to shed heavier layers during the summer and show more skin. It’s also the prime time for social engagements. Although some procedures, such as chemical peels and certain laser treatments, may not be recommended during the summer because of increased sensitivity to sun exposure, there are certain procedures that can be ideal for this time of year. See below for some cosmetic treatments appropriate to have during summer.

  1. Neuromodulators

Neuromodulators are a great option for helping you maintain a refreshed look and preventing summer wrinkles. The results can last for the entire summer. They not only reduce existing wrinkles but also prevent new, sunshine-induced wrinkles that we get from raising our foreheads and squinting in bright light. This treatment can be done any time of year and patients aren’t required to stay out of the sun.

  1. Facial Fillers

Unlike certain types of skin resurfacing treatments, facial fillers won’t have any negative interactions with summer heat and sunlight, making this treatment a good choice for summertime. Hyaluronic acid injectables add or restore volume and minimize lines. There may be some bruising or puffiness for about one week but makeup can be applied allowing you to return to your summertime activities.

  1. Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

Radio frequency skin tightening is not affected by the sun and all skin types can be treated. Heat is delivered deeply into the skin to tighten existing collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen. The effect is firming and lifting of the skin in any area including the face, abdomen, arms and thighs. There is no downtime and regular activities can be resumed immediately.

  1. Body Contouring Treatments

Body contouring treatments can reduce stubborn fat deposits below the skin to enhance the contours and silhouette of the body. Ultrasound body contouring, for example, administers ultrasound waves to remove fat. There is no discomfort, redness, swelling, or recovery period. These treatments can help you achieve your desired body shape.

  1. Hyperhidrosis Treatments

Some degree of sweating is normal and healthy – especially when we’re exposed to heat or when we exercise. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes abnormal, excessive sweating that occurs for no apparent reason. In addition to being used for treating wrinkles, neuromodulators can also help to significantly reduce excessive sweating. No need to worry about staining light-coloured summer clothing after this treatment.
