Summer Friendly Treatments

By 15 November 2018 Articles & Media
Most of our flights are booked, accommodation sorted and itinerary planned. Whether this includes a jam-packed daily schedule to sight see or just a routinely visit to the beach sipping on cocktails and relaxing… we all have one thing in common: we want to LOOK good!

Now in the past, and even still nowadays… people think of certain treatments to be done only during winter. Many times I hear people say: “I will leave my arms for winter” or “let’s do that after the holiday”. There are valid reasons for those statements, but if it is because you think they are not suitable for summer, you are WRONG!

Let me explain my bold statement. We live in South Africa, and Winter here by us is a good Summer day in the UK. So “winter treatments” and “summer treatments” do not make sense to me. What DOES make sense is the following: 

  • You can have any treatment done during anytime of the year, if you follow the following aftercare: 
  • Keep the treated area out of direct sunlight for at least 2 days
  • Always apply Broad Spectrum SPF50
  • Wear a hat or a scarf

So which treatments are fine to do before I’m off to the beach or on my site-seeing holiday?

1. Laser Hair Removal

This is one of the most popular treatments. Underarms, Bikinis, legs, arms, tummy, back… you name it. Nobody wants to struggle with a razor while on holiday. 

2. Laser Pigment Removal

When we picture our “beach-bod” this definitely does not include freckly arms or age spots on our face or chests! You can definitely get laser done during summer. BBL specifically is great to treat this condition on the WHOLE body!

3. Chemical Peels

The chemical peels we get these days are highly specialized and perfectly safe to do during summer. It’s just important to stick to your aftercare products and instructions.

4. Resurfacing Treatments

Nobody dreams of showing off a wrinkly chest or your laugh lines to change into crows feet while squinting to look for your children on the beach! Laser Resurfacing treatments such as profractional is great! It stimulates your body’s natural healing abilities. So it strengthens your skin. Protect your skin while out and about and you will have a “great-looking summer”.

5. Cellulite/Fat Removal

Rome was not build in a day… when it comes to cellulite and general fat removal, you need patience. These procedures need to start in advance and be accompanied with a good eating plan and lots of water! A quicker way to get rid of stubborn fat is LASER LIPO. This procedure is a once-off treatment, that will ensure for you to leave the house a few kilos lighter.


Probably one of the first appointments you should schedule before you leave for your destination. Botox is a great way to avoid memory lines from forming. If you go to a highly specialised aesthetic doctor, like we have at Dermology, you will see that they now have brilliant techniques to shape your face… you can even get a nose job done with fillers alone these days. Amazing right?

The main thing to make sure of is that you go to specialists in the field. Especially when it comes to highly specialized equipment such as laser and injectables such as Botox and Fillers. At Dermology we over 12 years’ experience of working with these Lasers. Our doctors are highly trained and experienced when it comes to shaping the face with a natural outlook.
