Summer Is Coming. Is Your Skin Ready?

Summer Is Coming. Is Your Skin Ready?

Winter’s winds and dry indoor heat suck the moisture from your skin, from top to toe. Now that the weather’s warmer and you’ve peeled back the layers of your clothes, you may notice that something else is peeling, too: your skin.

If you’re looking forward to summer’s revealing fashions, but your skin isn’t, board-certified dermatologist David Bank, MD, and our team at The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery in Mount Kisco, New York, are ready to help.

From basic skin care to laser hair removal, we make your skin silky, glowy, and youthful.

Bring on the moisture

The most common skin malady that winter triggers is dry, flaky skin. Even if you have oily facial skin you may still have dry patches on your face and almost certainly on your body.

Our aesthetics team analyzes your skin to custom-design an at-home skin care routine with medical-grade products. We help you choose the right products for your face and body from top-line brands, such as:

Cleansing and moisturizing your skin with the right products makes a world of difference in the quality and health of your skin. It’s an investment that pays off every time you look in the mirror.

Protect yourself

After months of winter chill, you’re ready to bask in the sun’s glow. Unfortunately, the sun’s glow is made up of ultraviolet (UV) A and B rays that damage the DNA in your skin cells. Over time, that warming sun causes:

And, of course, it could even cause skin cancer. Selecting the best, highest quality sunscreen with nontoxic ingredients is essential to keeping your skin looking better for life. 

Because you must reapply sunscreen every two hours you’re outdoors, or after sweating or swimming, we ensure your sunscreen offers broad-spectrum protection without dangerous chemicals. 

Your skin is your largest organ and can absorb almost anything you put on it. This is why you should aim for the purest skin care products and sunscreens possible.

Revive your skin

Skin damaged by sun, winter winds, our polluted atmosphere, or simply aging needs extra care. To keep your skin looking its best, we offer professional cleaning, extraction, and nourishment. The easiest way to do all that is through a facial.

A facial uses mechanical force or chemicals to remove the top layer of your skin, which is dulled by dead skin cells and dirt. A basic facial consists of a deep cleaning to remove dead skin and impurities, extraction to eliminate lesions, and hydration with nourishing ingredients.

Specialized facial treatments include: 

You can even take skin rejuvenation to the next level with laser treatments that transform your skin from the inside out. We offer energy-based treatments that:

You can opt for laser rejuvenation, microneedling, or radiofrequency. Modalities include:

You also may choose surgical rejuvenation, such as a facelift or eye lift, for a dramatic and long-lasting improvement.

Banish cellulite

That sexy new bathing suit won’t make it out of the shopping bag if you’re embarrassed by cellulite. We offer groundbreaking, prescription-only QWO® injections to break up the fibrous skin bands that cause cellulite dimples. 

Say bye-bye or hello to your hair

If you want silky smooth legs, armpits, or arms, consider laser hair removal. You can even use laser hair removal for unwanted facial hair, such as on your mustache area or sideburns.

And don’t forget about your scalp, either. If you’re a man or woman who has thinning hair or bald spots, we stimulate new hair growth with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. 

Transform your skin and your confidence for summer by booking a skin care evaluation and consultation at The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery today. Contact our office by phone or online form
