The summer months offer the perfect time to leave the comforts of your home and travel in search of new adventures. While you might come home recharged and rested, the fun can wreak havoc on your skin. The low humidity of the airplane, continuous hours in the sun, and indulgence in a couple more drinks and foods, your skin can look dull and tired. In other words, your skin is starving for attention after your vacation. As such, you may want to visit your aesthetician for some the following skin care treatments to get your skin glowing again:


If you’re dealing with skin discoloration, dull skin, large pores, melasma, and irregular pigmentation after your vacation, a Photofacial is one skin care treatment that you should consider. While wearing sunscreen at all times when outdoors can play a major role in preventing sun damage and uneven skin tone, sometimes it does not provide enough protection. Using the latest technology in skin rejuvenation and skin resurfacing, Photofacial works by emitting intense pulsed light (IPL) over the treatment areas of the skin. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally dilated vessels or pigmentation. The lesion will darken before it flakes off or the body absorbs it.

This treatment option can also be used to treat areas on the face, shoulders, chest, neck, and backs of hands. Each session takes around 30 minutes and you’ll typically need 4 to 6 sessions to achieve the best possible results. There’s practically no downtime with this treatment.

Chemical Peel

You may want to consider a chemical peel after a vacation, depending on the issue you’re having. There are different types of chemical peels you can get, ranging from superficial peels that only penetrate the outermost layer of skin to more complex peels that tackle deeper imperfections. During your consultation, your aesthetician will discuss your circumstances and the most appropriate type of peel.

Generally, a chemical peel involves the application of chemical solutions to the skin to destroy dead skin cells. The skin peels off and regenerates afterward from deeper layers of the epidermis. This treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars, age spots, and fine lines after your summer vacation.


If you’re bothered by wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes and forehead, Botox could be a great treatment to add to your after-vacation skin rejuvenation. This quick and easy procedure involves injecting the desired area and it works by inhibiting the contracture of the facial muscles beneath the skin that cause wrinkles and creases to form. But even if you get the treatment after your vacation, don’t overlook the importance of wearing sunglasses and sunscreen to protect your skin and eyes.
