Long, sunny days. Skin-bearing temperatures. BBQ’s and other outdoor activities fill the calendar.  Summer is in full-swing and there are many cosmetic treatment options that can help you look and feel your best this season. 

Summer can be an ideal time to undergo aesthetic procedures, but it’s important to note that not all treatments are well-suited for this time of year. 

It may be best to avoid undergoing particular treatments during the summer months that cause increased sun-sensitivity and risk of burning (such as with certain intensive skin resurfacing treatments). Increased sun exposure during the summer can negatively impact treatment results, cause hyper-pigmentation, and even, potentially, be dangerous. 

While that doesn’t necessarily mean all these types of treatments are off-limits, they’re likely to be much more disruptive to your regular activities. Appropriate and extensive sun-protection is critical and may be a substantially limiting factor for some. It’s generally advisable to choose treatments that are considered “sun-safe.” 

Here are some of the top summer treatments:

Body Sculpting 

Nonsurgical body-contouring procedures such as EMSCULPT, are ideal for the summer months because there is no downtime and patients can participate in regular outdoor activities.  

EMSCULPT enables you to quickly achieve a leaner more sculpted body—effortlessly and painlessly. It helps to both eliminate unwanted fat and increase muscle tone and definition in the abs or buttocks. 

The treatment is performed with a small device that rapidly contracts your muscles in a short amount of time—giving you the equivalent results of doing 20,000 sit-ups or squats in 30 minutes.

A shapelier, more perky bum. Firmer, flatter abs. A trimmer, more defined waist. Minus all the grueling, endless sweat sessions—in just a series of 4 treatments?  Yes, it’s for real. 

The one caveat? Ideal candidates are those who already workout regularly and are in relatively fair shape, but may still struggle to achieve the results they desire on their own. 

Surgical Procedures

Most surgical procedures aren’t affected by sun-exposure and can be performed year-round.

Summer is a great time for people who have extended summer vacations or take time off work to have procedures like rhinoplasties, facelifts, and eyelid surgery done because there’s plenty of time to recover. In fact, summer is the most popular time for a “nose job.”

 Injectable Treatments

Injectable treatments (like BOTOX, dermal fillers, and the “liquid facelift”) can help take years off your face, temporarily correct wrinkles and other signs of aging—without the surgery, pain, or downtime. 

If you’re looking for a “quick-fix” route that can do wonders, injectable treatments may be a good option to consider. The procedures are quick, easy, and deliver nearly instantaneous results—so you can get back to your summer—looking more youthful, vibrant, and amazingly refreshed.
