Beat the Heat with These Summer Skincare Tips


It’s officially summer, and playing outside may be tempting, but did you know that over 90 percent of age-related skin damage is caused by the sun? Even spending just a few minutes a day outside without protection can accumulate in a short period of time, causing wrinkles, brown spots, and an uneven skin tone. So just how do you prevent, and even turn back the clock on, skin damage caused by the sun?

At our Bay Area practice, Dr. Kenneth Bermudez offers multiple skincare treatments and sun protection products to give you healthier, more youthful-looking skin. This sunny season, try one of these non-surgical skin treatments:

The First Step to Supple Skin: Prevention

Whether you’re dealing with sunny and bright summer days or a bit of “June gloom,” protecting your skin—especially your face—is a must. Ultraviolet (UV) rays not only cause aging and sun spots, but they contribute to the loss of skin elasticity, giving us a more aged facial appearance. Of course, the prevention of skin cancer is also a huge factor when it comes to wanting sun protection.

Dr. Bermudez offers a range of dermatologist-grade skincare products, including EltaMD®* broad-spectrum sunscreen, made from zinc oxide. Not only will this natural sunscreen decrease the risk of skin cancer and prevent signs of aging caused by the sun, but it is also fragrance- and paraben-free, and perfect for sensitive skin

Revitalize with the Right Skin Care

If you want to freshen up your face without surgery or a more invasive skin treatment, then your first line of defense will be high-quality skin care products. At Bermudez Aesthetic Medicine, we offer several dermatologist-approved skincare lines, all of which are designed to reduce the effects of sun damage.

For example, Dr. Bermudez offers the Obagi Nu-Derm® System, a skincare system formulated to correct hyperpigmentation and signs of aging, including age spots, lines and wrinkles, and rough skin. Made from natural botanical ingredients, Obagi products are formulated to stimulate elastin and collagen production for a younger appearance.

At our practice, we also offer SkinCeuticals®, a clinical skincare line trusted by dermatologists because of its “backed by science” approach to repairing skin damage. High in antioxidants and other clinically proven ingredients, SkinCeuticals have several products for repairing skin damage, including those that improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while brightening the complexion.

Rejuvenate Your Skin with Lasers

Next to switching up your skincare, our Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment is considered one of the least invasive—yet effective—skin treatments for reversing sun damage. How does it work? A controlled beam of laser light is applied to the surface of the skin, vaporizing damaged skin cells in the targeted areas. This treatment works on the topmost layer of your skin, which response to the treatment by producing new and healthy skin cells. The result? Younger, smoother skin in as little as 30 minutes! And the best part is that the results typically last 3-5 years!

Remove Sun Damage with Dermabrasion

Another minimally invasive skin treatment that Dr. Bermudez offers is dermabrasion, which is used to treat scars, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, and an uneven skin tone. The procedure uses a handheld brush that carefully scrapes away the top layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells in the process while promoting new skin cell growth in their place.

Slough off Dead Skin with a Chemical Peel

One of our most popular skin treatments, a chemical peel is used to treat a myriad of skin problems. This is done with a special solution that is applied to the face and then removed carefully—taking old, dead skin cells with it and leaving a layer of younger, smoother skin. Our chemical peels are formulated for your individual skin care needs, and so we offer light- and deep-skin treatments, and everything in between.
