Skin Care Tips For Spending Time in the Sun

We are in the midst of summer, and with only a month left before school begins and our schedules get back to normal, many of us want to spend as much time outdoors as possible. But being aware and proactive about time spent in the sun can prevent damage to your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

Sunburns can be quite painful and can cause long-lasting skin problems, including cancer. UV rays from the sun actually damage the DNA of your skin cells. If you’ve ever had a sunburn that led to peeling skin, you’ve done that kind of damage.

An important fact to remember is that all skin tones can burn. Darker skin does contain more protective melanin, but there is still a point at which even the darkest skin tones will burn. The best protection is to use a broad spectrum SPF sunscreen when you’ll be going outdoors and to avoid time in direct sunlight at peak hours of the day, typically between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. You’ll want to reapply your sunscreen every two hours if spending lots of time outdoors. And if you’re sweating a lot or going in the water, you’ll need to reapply more often.

Many retailers also make clothing that contains sun-protectant, too. This is a good alternative or additional sun protection for children and adults alike.

If you are suffering from any unwanted skin conditions, Dr. Lance Hamilton at Jolie Vie Aesthetics in Bentonville, Arkansas may be able to help. Contact our office to learn more about our skin treatments and to schedule a consultation:

Winter is the Best Time for Laser Hair Removal

Have you been debating laser hair removal? Well, now is the time! Winter is the best time for laser hair removal. Jolie Vie Aesthetics is booking appointments NOW!

Why is winter the best time to get laser hair removal? There are a few reasons!

Typically, people don’t have quite as much pigment on their skin during the winter season. The lasers used in the hair removal process are designed to target the melanin (pigment) of the hair in the follicle and disrupt growth. Therefore, the lighter your skin is, the easier it is for the laser to identify the hair in the follicle. If your skin is darker than your natural color, due to sun exposure or sunless tanning, the laser will not be as effective. It might even increase your risk of burning!

Sun exposure to most parts of the body is less likely to happen in the winter, so it’s definitely a more practical time to start laser hair removal treatments. Additionally, you must avoid sun exposure to the treated areas for 2-4 weeks prior to and following a laser hair removal session. Avoiding the sun is typically easier to do in winter.

Laser hair removal also takes time.

Laser hair removal targets hair in the first stage of growth in the follicle, so several sessions are necessary to eliminate all the hair in the area being treated. We usually recommend most clients plan for at least 4-6 sessions over the course of 6 months before the entire area is hair free. For this reason alone, you should begin the process long before you expect to wear clothing that will expose the areas of your body where the hair has been removed.

Fotona’s high-performance laser systems with FRAC3®technology have introduced new standards of efficiency in providing safe and effective hair reduction – using an innovative system that effectively targets hair follicles with a combination of selective and homogenous photothermolysis.

The success of hair reduction treatments depends largely on a patient’s skin and hair type, as well as the skills and treatment insight of the practitioner. Most patients can expect a significant reduction in unwanted hair, and any future hair growth will usually be thinner and lighter, and thus much less pronounced than before.
