Summer is approaching quickly! It’s time to prepare your skin to look its best in the South Florida sunshine. Everyone knows the sunlight is a truth detector for your skin. The sunlight exposes all your skins issues, blemishes, blackheads and more. Since most Miami residents spend their summer outdoors, it’s important to take care of your skin now.

What are hydrafacials?

Hydrafacials hydrate your skin and treat acne, pigmentation, skin tone and texture. This is the perfect solution for those who have ignored their skin during the past few months or feel like they don’t look their best.

How do hydrafacials work?

The hydrafacial procedure uses Vortex technology. It’s a resurfacing procedure that exfoliates, cleanses, extracts and hydrates your skin using hyaluronic acid, peptides, antioxidants and 2 diode lights. Those who have acne, fine lines, and clogged pores are happy to see immediate improvement and continued long-term benefits.

Who are ideal candidates for this procedure?

Generally, anyone will benefit from hydrafacials. However, some people have specific skin issues and sensitivities that might interfere with the benefits. Always consult with a dermatologist before agreeing to any skin care procedure. A dermatologist will evaluate your skin and guide you towards the right skin care treatments best suited for you.

Why does the sun reveal skin ailments?

The sunlight is similar to being under a magnifying glass. Have you ever been outdoors with a friend or family member and noticed every detail of their skin? You might have noticed blackheads, large pores, and more. Surprisingly, you most likely didn’t notice the skin imperfection indoors. The sunlight also contains harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays. The UV rays can cause a specific type of skin cancer called Melanoma. It can also damage the eyes by causing cataracts, corneal damage, and macular degeneration.

Symptoms of Sunburn

Skin that is:

  • Red
  • Painful
  • Itchy
  • Hot to the touch
  • Blistered
  • Flaking
  • Peeling
  • Rough
  • Swollen

Preparing your skin ahead of time with a hydrafacial will give you a head start on summer skincare. It’s best to have healthy skin before you apply loads of sunscreen on it. While most sunscreens are made with ingredients that moisturize your skin, others can clog pores. If you don’t get a hydrafacial before summer you risk aggravating skin ailments and causing them to become more difficult to deal with later.
