Our Favorite Summer Treatments

Posted on Jul 07,2020 By Y. Anthony Nakamura

During summer, most of us are looking forward to spending time by the pool or at the beach with family and friends. However, the high heat and humidity and swimsuit season can bring on some problems or insecurities as well. Thankfully, at Accent on You, our med spa offers several services that are perfect for the summer months. Here are a few of our favorites.

CoolSculpting

If you have worked hard to feel confident in a swimsuit but still have some stubborn fat, CoolSculpting may be the perfect treatment for you. CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical fat reducing procedure which works by freezing fat cells and makes a great alternative to liposuction or other surgeries for many candidates. Freezing fat cells causes them to be damaged to the point that the body naturally flushes them away, permanently reducing stubborn areas of fat and contouring the body. However, the skin and other tissues are not damaged through the safe treatment. CoolSculpting sessions last just one hour, and there is no downtime required.

Microblading & Lash Extensions

In the summer heat, most people are looking to wear minimal makeup and don’t want to risk smudged or running mascara, especially at the beach or the pool. That’s why microblading and lash extensions are perfect for the summer, offering the look of applying mascara or filling in your brows without the hassle of daily application.

Microblading is a form of eyebrow tattooing using tiny needles and high-quality pigments to create hair-like strokes, filling in and shaping the eyebrows. The results of microblading last up to two years, so you don’t have to worry about applying makeup to your eyebrows and save significant time overall. The procedure is performed after administering topical numbing cream, so it is generally comfortable and pain-free.

Lash extensions are false eyelashes which are applied to your natural eyelashes. Accent on You uses Xtreme Lash Eyelash Extensions, which have a natural look and include over 600 different varieties to suit many styles and preferences. The lashes extensions allow you to skip mascara and avoid smudges, and typically last between 30-60 days.

Microdermabrasion

Many people face breakouts, dryness, and irritation during the summer months. Microdermabrasion can often address these problems. Microdermabrasion is intended to remove excess sebum and environmental pollution from the skin, improving texture and balancing pH. The treatment involves thoroughly cleansing the skin before using a diamond-tip wand to exfoliate the skin. Once the skin has been thoroughly exfoliated, products specifically catered to your needs are applied, including SPF to protect your skin. While microdermabrasion can be extremely beneficial in the summer months, it’s not recommended for those who have had recent excess sun exposure or tanned. A qualified professional will evaluate your skin and recommend whether microdermabrasion is the right treatment for you during a consultation.
