Summer cosmetic procedures
Human skin requires careful and properly selected care all year round. This is especially true for the hot season, as well as the period of active sun. Cosmetic procedures in the summer can help keep the skin youthful and fresh and protect it from aggressive summer factors.
In this article, we will tell you how to properly care for your skin in the summer and what procedures at the clinic will help it stay in good condition even in the heat.
Visits to a cosmetologist in the summer
As we have already said, it is possible and even necessary to go to a beautician in the summer! After all, it is in the warm season that the skin begins to intensively produce sebum, which leads to greater pollution of the pores and the associated unpleasant problems (rashes, comedones, etc.).
In addition, active exposure to the sun provokes the synthesis of melanin. It is thanks to this substance that various unwanted pigmentation appears on the skin. Therefore, it is worth noting separately such an important point in personal care as sun protection.
To protect yourself as much as possible from the harmful effects of UVA and UVB radiation, you must adhere to some rules:
◼ it is necessary to use creams with SPF all year round, but this is especially important in the summer;
◼ it is better to choose products with the highest possible protection factor (from 30 and above), as well as with a filter from various types of radiation (UVB and UVA);
◼ it is important to apply SPF generously enough to all exposed areas of the body 15-20 minutes before going outside and renew the protective layer every few hours (or after each bath);
◼ if you are used to applying makeup, then you need to do this 3-5 minutes after applying sunscreen;
◼ even when using sun protection, still try to avoid direct rays. You should not be outside for a long time during the hottest hours, it is better to choose a shade and use sunglasses, a hat and the most closed clothes;
◼ at the end of the day, SPF cream must be thoroughly washed off the skin. For this purpose, micellar water, hydrophilic oil and various cleansers are best suited.
Remember that even the most expensive and effective summer cosmetic procedures will not be as effective if you expose your skin to aggressive solar radiation every day! Esteva Clinic specialists will help you choose the right cream with SPF, as well as other skin care products.
Also, in the hot season, the skin is negatively affected by water with various chemistry in the pools, which have long become an indispensable attribute of summer holidays. It does not improve the appearance and constant stay near air conditioners, since the air in such rooms is drier (which means that the skin itself dries out).
A balanced diet and water regime, as well as home care and summer cosmetic procedures, can help to cope with such specific external circumstances.
The best cosmetic procedures for the summer
Most of the procedures provided in modern aesthetic medicine centers can be done in the summer. These procedures include:
◼ face and body massage;
◼ non-aggressive facial cleansing;
◼ biorevitalization and mesotherapy;
◼ anti-wrinkle injections;
◼ contour plastic.
Before carrying out any of the procedures, the doctor is obliged to talk about contraindications and warn about certain restrictions. For example, after some procedures, it is undesirable to swim in pools or sunbathe for several days. If there are no individual or any other contraindications, the procedure can be safely done.
However, cosmetology in the summer is often used to solve specific problems that are relevant in the hot season. We will describe these top procedures in detail below.

SMAS lifting is the most effective non-surgical method of face and body lifting. In Esteva Clinic, the procedure is carried out using the ULTRAFORMER III device (Ultraformer 3), which affects the body thanks to sound waves. The peculiarity of the technique lies in the fact that the effect occurs both on the skin and on the deeper layers of the body (fat and muscles).

A variety of injectable cosmetic procedures, which consists in the careful introduction of preparations based on polynucleotides into the skin. Substances entering the body have a multifaceted positive effect on the skin:
◼ the regeneration process starts,
◼ synthesis of elastane, collagen and non-collagen molecules is activated;
◼ thanks to polynucleotides, the skin is intensively moisturized;
◼ small wrinkles are smoothed out, the skin is tightened;
◼ sebum secretion decreases, pores become less visible, skin relief and tone are evened out;
◼ the drug helps protect the skin from UVA and UVB radiation, which is especially important in summer.
The number of procedures and the type of preparations are selected for a particular patient, based on the condition of the skin and the request. It is advisable to use the drug in courses, especially if there are such skin problems as:
◼ scars, stretch marks or acne;
◼ couperosis or rosacea;

Polynucleotide injections are also prescribed to patients after ablative procedures for accelerated recovery.

Do you want to quickly and easily lose weight by the summer? Then cryolipolysis is exactly what you need! The method was created in order to significantly reduce the volume of the body in one visit to the beautician. The procedure helps to remove those deposits that are particularly persistent and are not burned even during intensive physical training and proper nutrition. For this reason, such a procedure is very popular among cosmetologists in the summer, because it helps to improve the appearance of the body before the beach season.
Studies note that the average reduction of fat in the area affected by the device is 25-40%. It is especially pleasant that the procedure is most often needed only one, and only in some situations it makes sense to repeat sessions.
The result of cryolipolysis will not be instant – fat will begin to disappear in a few days and this process will last up to 4 months.
The procedure itself is very comfortable, and pain during the process is minimal. The method can be applied on various areas of the body: abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms. Cryolipolysis is used both to combat local fat deposits and for correction after liposuction.
Before the procedure, the doctor conducts an examination, determines the amount of fat deposits, selects the correct nozzles for the device. Also at the preliminary consultation, a specialist of the clinic of aesthetic medicine will check for contraindications.

Treatment of hyperhidrosis
A summer procedure for cosmetologists, which is becoming more and more popular every year. Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating that occurs regardless of the ambient temperature and physical activity.
The problem is very common and can occur in people of all ages. Localization of hyperhidrosis is also different – the problem can affect both the whole body and certain areas (for example, the palms, armpits or head).
Such intense sweating brings especially a lot of discomfort in the summer, when the body is already experiencing difficulties due to the heat. Therefore, injections of botulinum toxin, which is used to treat sweating, is one of the most popular procedures among cosmetologists in the summer.
It is also worth treating excessive sweating because various problems can appear on the skin damp from sweat – rashes, wounds, warts.
Botulinum toxin, which is injected into the skin, affects the human nervous system, resulting in a decrease in sweat secretion. The result is noticeable within a few weeks after the procedure and will last up to six months.

What cosmetic procedures cannot be done in the summer
There are also procedures that the crane is not recommended to do in the summer. To stay well-groomed and healthy, it is worth remembering some rules and refraining from the following procedures:
◼ laser hair removal, especially on permanently exposed areas of the skin;
◼ deep and medium peeling;
◼ skin resurfacing and whitening
◼ removal of neoplasms on the skin (papillomas, moles, rosacea, etc.).
To summarize, cosmetology in the summer should not cause trauma to the skin and even minimally deplete its protective layer. During a period of increased solar activity, such exposure can only harm and accelerate skin aging. Therefore, some procedures are best left until the cooler season.
