Non-Invasive Skincare Treatments To Get Glowing Skin In The Summer

Summer is calling! Are you ready to let it all out? With temperatures rising and days getting longer, now is the time to shed those bulky sweaters and embrace lighter clothing like shorts, sundresses, and swimwear. Just as it is important to adjust your wardrobe according to season, so is adapting your skincare regimen to maintain glowing skin through summer’s heat and sunshine.

The good news is there are so many great non-invasive skincare treatments to choose from. These treatments focus on exfoliating your skin, revealing fresh new skin, improving skin texture, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and scars. However, how can you determine the ideal treatment plan for you?

This article isn’t a substitute for a personalized skin assessment. Let’s examine some popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment options for you to consider in preparation for summer.

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel is known as one of the cornerstones of skincare. Known for treating a wide range of skin concerns, the benefits of a chemical peel include smoother and brighter-looking skin. Peels reveal new, fresh skin which also improves the appearance of fine lines. By exfoliating dead cells from your pores and stimulating cell turnover, chemical peels can diminish fine lines for an overall more youthful complexion. 

Not all chemical peels are equal; they vary in strength, formulation, and depth of penetration. Your skin health professional can help you select the right one specially formulated to your needs and your skin’s sensitivity. We offer a range of SkinMedica® and Zo® Skin Health peels. 

If you are new to peels, beginning with a custom peel containing beta or alpha hydroxy acids may be a gentler way to ease in. Plan your peel. Discuss with your provider any beach trips or outdoor activities planned before having a peel. It is recommended to have a peel well in advance allowing for ample recovery time. Your skin will be more photo-sensitive, meaning it will be more prone to burn in the sun. Otherwise having a peel after you return from vacation may be a more suitable time.

Ask your provider about recommended sun protection, as you will want broad-spectrum protection SPF35 or higher that is also suitable for sensitive skin. A high-quality mineral-based sunscreen might be a great choice.

Halo™ Laser Resurfacing

Collagen production begins to dwindle in our mid-20s by 1% each year resulting in rough texture, uneven skin tone, and saggier skin. Fortunately, we live in an age of advanced aesthetic procedures such as  Halo™ Laser. 

People often ask what is Halo Laser and it is purpose. Halo is a dual-modality laser offering ablative and non-ablative, in layman’s terms, it’s two lasers in one. It can target superficial imperfections as well as age-related signs with minimal downtime for a maximum fresh-faced glow. In addition, it penetrates deep to target damage below the surface, thereby triggering your body’s natural healing response and stimulating collagen production resulting in a fresh-faced Halo glow. Our patients can’t stop raving about it.

This treatment can also help improve skin discoloration, acne scars, wrinkles, and your skin’s texture.

If you are planning Halo™ before a beach trip or special event, be sure to give your skin time to heal. You may experience flaky skin, light peeling, redness, or a mild burning effect for a few days to a week. You may also feel more sensitive to sunlight and heat while recovering. A broad-spectrum SPF 35 or higher is a MUST! Try to book your treatment three to four weeks before your event or summer vacation to allow enough recovery time.


Microneedling is another effective skin rejuvenation procedure that builds with each treatment. This is an efficient procedure that stimulates collagen and elastin production by creating controlled micro-injuries in the skin. Tiny acupuncture-size needles are used to cause those, meaning just deep enough to trigger a healing response. The treatment helps improve a multitude of skin concerns. Over time, this treatment can help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and scars to create firmer and smoother skin.

For an even more efficacious treatment, it is often paired with PRP, Exosomes, or an Accelerated Serum. These powerful add-ons travel deep into the channels treating fine lines, wrinkles, brightness, hydration, redness, scars, texture, and more. We use the SkinPen microneedling tool to deliver the treatments.

People often receive a series of microneedling sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. Speak with your provider to coordinate treatment in time for your special event, beach day, or summer vacation. Get your skin summer glow-ready!


For those in search of a gentle yet effective skin rejuvenation solution, DiamondGlow® provides an innovative solution. Equipped with a diamond-tipped wand, this dermabrasion device exfoliates while infusing customized serums designed to hydrate, brighten, and clarify. Without downtime required, this treatment option can result in smoother skin with improved tone and texture perfect for a summertime glow!

DiamondGlow® patented treatment, provides softer, smoother skin, with a more even skin tone and pigmentation, reduced fine lines, and improves elastin and collagen production with zero downtime. With new skin at the surface now, it is highly recommended you use a broad-spectrum SPF 35 or higher, even better would be to give your skin a few days of recovery time before hitting the beach or your special event.

Maintaining Your Summer Glow

Show-up and Glow-up. Imagine feeling confident and “comfortable in your skin” no matter what you wear. This summer, let your skin glow. No matter which treatment option you select, it’s important to give yourself plenty of time to recover before attending any outdoor events. Sun protection should always be top of mind; wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF daily and consider wearing protective clothing and accessories that shield your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. Any of these non-invasive skincare treatments may make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

Maintaining your summer glow requires both professional treatments and an effective skincare regimen tailored to the specific needs of your skin. Stay hydrated and invest in high-quality skincare products for year-round radiant results.

Talk to a skincare professional about the best summer formulations for your specific needs. For most people, summer heat means it’s time to lighten up on the daily product regimen. Most folks keep it simple with a gentle cleanser, oil control, light exfoliator, and either a brightening or wrinkle serum. There is no one size fits all (unless it’s sun protection) when it comes to skincare, think Skin Health, that’s why we encourage you to find the right formula for you and wear it every day. We sell medical-grade skincare of the highest quality to help you maintain your results at home.
