Glowing skin for the summer is the ultimate pick-me-up — and thanks to advancements in aesthetic technology, you don’t need the sun to achieve it! What’s not ideal, however, is putting your results at risk because you went out in the sun before your skin fully healed. Fortunately, there are plenty of treatments available at AVIE! that can deliver that sun-kissed glow naturally, and most importantly, safely during the summer months.
Here’s a look at a few low-to-no downtime treatments that are safe for all skin types year-round:
Moxi® laser treatment
A laser treatment in the summer? Yes, we know it may sound out of the ordinary, but that’s what makes Moxi so outstanding! The Moxi laser is gentle enough to be used on all skin types, all year round with little to no downtime, and powerful enough to deliver tailored improvements to the tone and texture of your skin in a 12- to 15-minute full-face treatment. Whether you want a light complexion refresh or more intense skin renewal, Moxi features three intensities to suit your needs. After your treatment, your skin will appear red, but this redness should subside quickly as your radiant skin is revealed in the days following treatment.
When it comes to microneedling at AVIE!, we don’t just offer any treatment. We’re proud to provide the most advanced microneedling treatment with FDA-cleared VirtueRF! Best in its class, VirtueRF involves minimal to no discomfort and no social downtime — so you can get back into the swing of summer as soon as the night of your treatment. How is this possible? Unlike traditional microneedling pens or inferior radiofrequency (RF) microneedling systems, VirtueRF’s microneedles are so precise that it creates no tearing or trauma to the skin. Using potent RF energy and LED light, VirtueRF can smooth wrinkles, tighten skin, reduce acne and improve skin tone and texture anywhere on the body. As your skin begins to renew itself, you can expect to see results within two weeks, with continued improvements up to six months following your treatment as new collagen and elastin is produced.
To enhance your results, pair your Moxi or VirtueRF treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and exosomes. These all-natural treatments can help create a more refreshed appearance by generating vibrant collagen growth, reducing inflammation and promoting cell regeneration.
We can’t say enough amazing things about HydraFacial MD! This complexion perfector involves zero downtime, delivers immediate benefits to the look and feel of skin AND is only a 30-minute treatment. As a multi-step hydradermabrasion treatment, HydraFacial MD combines patented vortex suction with nourishing serums to cleanse, extract and hydrate the skin. Depending on your skin’s needs, your HydraFacial MD treatment may be customized to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture, enlarged pores, oily skin, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness or acne/clogged pores. So, if you’re looking for a quick way to get glowing this summer, HydraFacial MD is a must try!
Don’t forget your sunscreen!
No matter which summer-safe treatment ends up calling your name, make sure to apply sunscreen vigilantly this summer. Only a broad spectrum, SPF 30+ sunscreen can offer optimal protection against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Wear your SPF every day and reapply every two hours, especially during peak sun hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). Doing so will not only help protect the results of your aesthetic treatments, but also reduce your risk of skin cancer and premature aging.
