Patio season is here!

Patio Season is here!

Friends, Drinks, and great weather can only mean one thing: Patio season is upon us!  During this time we want to look our best when socializing with friends.  Firstly, we want to keep our skin looking young.  The easiest and simplest way to do that is to lather on the sunscreen.  Applying a good sunscreen with an SPF of 60 over all exposed areas of the skin will help prevent our skin from prematurely aging.  Protecting our skin by covering up will also help reduce the chances of skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.

Having a great fashion sense!

Hats are in fashion this year and wearing a large brimmed hat will not only keep your style up to date, it will also help add another layer of sun protection.  Your eyes are just as susceptible to sun damage as your skin.  Wearing sunglasses will not only allow you to express your style, sunglasses with 100% UV protection will help protect your eyes from possible sun damage.

Let the good times roll!

Laughing and smiling are all part of having a good time.  Through movement around the eyes and forehead, wrinkles can start to appear.  Smiling very deeply can create crows feet on the side of the eyes, while being expressive and moving your eyebrows up and down can create wrinkles on your forehead and in the area between your eyebrows called the glabella.  The wrinkles in the glabella, many people call them the anger lines or number 11’s, is the most commonly complained area.  Through the use of Botox, Dr. Nakatsui is able to reduce the appearance of these lines in the glabella, forehead, and around the eyes.

Looking our best!

Fillers placed in select areas can help rejuvenate the appearance of your face.  Through age and weight loss, areas on the face can lose it’s fullness.  For many, losing weight is a great accomplishment from hard work and dedication.  With weight loss, one of the first areas to show is the face.  Areas such as the cheeks and the lines around the nose and mouth, called the nasolabial folds, begin to sink.  Through the use of fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane, Dr. Nakatsui is able to give the youthfulness and bounce back into these areas with a very natural appearance.

Having radiant skin!

The summer months can be harsh on the skin.  The mixture of sun, wind, and dirt can take its toll on our face.  Through new technologies, Dr. Nakatsui and the Groot DermaSurgery centre is able to improve the appearance of our skin.  HydraFacial MD cleanses, exfoliates, and extracts impurities and dead skin cells while at the same time replenishes vital nutrients into the skin.  ThemiSmooth is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes radio frequency to improve skin laxity and promote collagen production.

Look great in that summer dress!
