With hot summer temperatures upon us here in Helena, Montana, it’s not surprising to notice changes in your skin. While it’s wonderful to have sunshine and warm weather every day, the heat can actually contribute to more clogged pores and acne breakouts than you had during the colder months.
At Montana Aesthetics, Dr. Latha S. Vellanki and our team of medical and aesthetics professionals offer the HydraFacial® — the perfect antidote for clogged pores and battered summer skin.
Why are your pores so clogged?
As you may know, clogged pores are the result of dead skin cells that get trapped in your pores along with oil and dirt. This can lead to pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads. In the summertime, environmental factors that may make clogged pores even worse include:
- Air toxins, like smoke
- Oils from your hands when you touch your face
- Oils from within your pores
- Wind and sun exposure
And if you’ve inherited large pores, you can thank your genes for the extra area for congestion.
Sunscreen protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays, but is also to blame for clogging your pores during the summer months, as is the sunlight itself. While your skin’s ability to renew itself increases because of sun exposure, being inside an air-conditioned room slows down this renewal process, allowing dead skin cells to accumulate rather than shed. Add all these factors together and you’ve got clogged, congested skin that looks dull and tired.
HydraFacial – not your average facial
When it comes to unclogging your pores and rejuvenating battered summer skin that occurs as a result of hotter temps, wind, and sun exposure, the HydraFacial isn’t just your average facial. HydraFacial uses a patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate your skin. During a HydraFacial appointment, your aesthetic professional at Helena Dermatology & Montana Aesthetics uses a special device to gently, yet effectively, remove dead skin cells from your pores.
This three-step treatment, which takes about 30 minutes, is cleansing, rejuvenating, and moisturizing all at once. Its results are immediately noticeable, and HydraFacial delivers long-term health benefits for your skin.
This soothing, refreshing facial is good for all skin types and works well anytime of the year. In the summertime, it can make a difference in the tone and texture of your skin. Your aesthetic provider tailors the HydraFacial to your individual needs and concerns.
Reap all the benefits of a HydraFacial
You may be motivated to schedule a HydraFacial because of your clogged, oily pores, or sun-damaged skin, but as an added bonus, you get the numerous benefits of the HydraFacial experience, including:
- Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles
- Reducing the appearance of age spots and sun spots
- Reducing the appearance of enlarged pores
- Increasing elasticity and firmness
- Equalizing skin tone and texture
After a HydraFacial treatment, your skin instantly appears more vibrant, healthy, and youthful, and free of clogged pores.
Customized for your skin with an added boost
After exfoliation, cleansing, and extracting the dead skin cells and oil from within your pores, we may recommend an added boost in the form of a serum for your specific skin care concerns. HydraFacial serums work with your newly refreshed skin to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, if that’s what you need, or to reduce the appearance of sun damaged skin, or to recharge your skin with peptides for firmer, totally hydrated skin.
By now you’re probably beginning to understand why the HydraFacial is a perfect antidote for summertime skin problems. Why not let us customize a HydraFacial experience just for you so you look your best at an upcoming wedding, class reunion, or another special occasion this summer?
