As the July 4th holiday approaches, many of us are anticipating a relaxing holiday spent at our favorite outdoor spot. While it’s easy to leave busy schedules and daily routines behind, patients should continue their skincare routines to protect skin from sun damage and other skin conditions such as acne or wrinkling. As our patients plan and pack for their vacations, the licensed providers of AYA™ Medical Spa offer tips to help patients continue their skincare regimen, especially for those spending extended time outdoors. Restorative facial treatments are also available for patients who want to rejuvenate their look after returning from vacation.
AYA™ offers a variety of medical grade skincare products at all three of our locations in Atlanta at Phipps Plaza, Northside in Atlanta and Avalon in Alpharetta. Obagi®, Revision®, NEOCUTIS, iS Clinical®, and Elta® MD are a few of our product lines that provide sunscreens, moisturizers, and cleansers. It is important to pack your own products, as hotels commodities usually do not include facial-specific skincare. However, for patients who are flying out of town, remember to pack liquid products that are over 3 oz. in a checked baggage or in small bottles if carrying a bag on-board. Facial cleansers are necessary to unclog pores and wash off sweat and dirt accumulated from long days outdoors. Moisturizers re-hydrate skin that has been outside in the sun and heat.
In addition, sunscreen is the most important product to continuously apply throughout the day to protect from sunburn and age spots. For long car rides, patients should apply sunscreen as harmful ultraviolet rays can penetrate through car windows. Sunscreens with at least SPF 30 are required for adequate UV protection. It is also important to apply sunscreen to smaller areas of the body such as the ears, feet, neck, and scalp to avoid sunburn. For extra protection, pack a hat to help further shade your face and neck from the sun and drink plenty of water to help keep skin healthy and hydrated.
While spending extended time in the sun is inevitable on a summer vacation, AYA™ also wants to remind patients of our summer-long facial rejuvenation treatment specials to help restore skin and address the signs of aging and sun damage. From now through August 31st, 2013, patients can save $50 on our specially priced chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments. These two treatments are popular, minimally invasive procedures that exfoliate skin and stimulate collagen regrowth for new, healthy skin. For patients concerned with more comprehensive skin conditions such as sun spots, freckles, and lax skin, our technology treatments ReFirme™ and FotoFacial RF® are also included in our summer specials.
We hope all of our patients get to relax this summer. Be sure to contact us today to schedule your skincare analysis and take advantage of our summer specials before August 31st, 2013.
