Whether you are looking to maximize and extend the results of your facelift, or you want to make the most of your non-surgical treatments like BOTOX, exceptional Knoxville skincare is the answer. Summer is a great time to show off your results, but it often means increased exposure to the sun’s UV rays that can wreak havoc on your skin.

Here are some tips on how to protect yourself from the sun after your procedure:

  • Use sunscreen - We’ve all heard this repeatedly, but using a high-quality sunscreen with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide is your best defense against sun damage. Be sure to reapply throughout the day.
  • Wear protective clothing - Even better protection than sunscreen comes from wearing hats or clothes that protect your skin from direct sunlight, especially during the midday hours when the sun is most intense. Sunglasses also do more than help you adjust to different conditions; they prevent squinting that can lead to crow’s feet and wrinkles.
  • Don’t forgo the moisturizer - With the higher humidity, it can be tempting to skip the moisturizer, but without it, your skin can easily dehydrate. Try switching to a lighter serum for the summer months.
  • Exfoliate regularly - Sun damaged skin can appear dull and rough, but you can reveal your healthy fresh skin through regular exfoliation. Laser skin resurfacing can help reduce the signs of aging caused by sun damage.
