Summer is here and so is the fear of dealing with the skin issues. If you are frightened at the idea of wearing a swimsuit that would expose your body then you must be dealing with some skin issue such as pigmentation, acne, skin discolouration, scars etc. But this summer, there is no need to be afraid of exposing your summer ready skin. Get your skin in shape and make it ready for miniskirts, sexy swimsuits, tank tops and bikinis by utilising these professional dermatologists suggested skin fixes.
1. Deal with your skin discolouration
If some parts of your body such as a neck, back of your arms, chest or face looks darker or redder as compared to the rest of your body then you may choose to cover up your body parts instead of exposing them by wearing tank tops or sleeveless T-shirts. If you love having sunbathe then your face and the thin skin of your décolletage will surely gain attention showing sun damaged skin and effects of alcohol consumption and smoking.
Instead of wasting your money on useless skin lightening creams, dermatologists recommends undergoing non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation treatment to treat discoloured skin, pigmentation and redness. The LED and fractional laser therapies can help to dispel the damaged skin cells and prevent further discolouration of the skin. Also, protect your skin from further damage by using broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and covering your exposed body areas with dark coloured clothing.
2. Get rid of back acne
The acne not only affects the face but in some people it also affects the back and shoulders. So if a back acne outbreak is stopping you from exposing your toned shoulders this summer, believe that you are not alone in this. The key to deal with the issue of back acne is prevention. The kind of prevention it requires depends largely on the type of acne you suffer from. By consulting a professional dermatologist regarding the condition will save you hundreds of pounds which you may waste on over-the-counter products without any improvements. A single effective skin rejuvenation treatment (such as antibiotic pills, Azelaic acid creams, Chemical skin peel treatment) by a dermatologist will not only put a stop to your acne but will also prevent acne scarring that will enable you to show off your impressive body in a bikini top.
3. Remove the stretch marks
Women mostly suffer from the stretch marks due to pregnancy, loss of gained weight or growth spurt. The use of topical creams, gels and serums will not help in this issue. Rather than wasting your time and money on these overpriced creams that claim to remove stretch marks, it is better to choose the laser skin treatments. Seeking a laser skin treatment from a professional dermatologist will not only resolve the issue of stretch marks but also of skin discolouration and scarring making your skin is ready for the glowing tan.
4. Have a body hair removal treatment
One of the biggest issues in summer which keeps you at a bay of using exposed and trendy clothing is the body hair which returns quickly even after shaving or waxing. These procedures even cause ingrowths of some hair which lead to follicle inflammation. So this summer say goodbye to your body hair for good with the laser hair removal treatment. This treatment permanently removes the body hair leaving your skin silky smooth and glowing. There are several different laser devices which are used for the purpose depending on the type of skin. But it is always recommended that you should approach a professional and experienced cosmetic doctor or dermatologist for the treatment to avoid any complications caused by inappropriate laser treatment.
5. Improve unsightly scarring
There can be many things which can leave your body with unsightly scars such as acne, injury, wound, burn, rough activity etc. This prevents you from showing off your summer body. Generally, scars naturally dissipate but it’s a long process. However, if you demand to have a flawless skin before you set out for your summer vacation on the island, you can choose to see a dermatologist and get appropriate treatment.
