Dare to Bare This SummerPosted On: July 5, 2016
Summertime is for swimsuits and sun. There’s typically another “s” word thrown in there, too: skin. If it’s bulging, mottled, or hairy, you may not feel comfortable showing it as everyone around you removes shirts and shorts to get in the water or catch some rays. But you don’t have to let an unwanted cosmetic issue stop you from enjoying the season. From noninvasive treatments to plastic surgery, Michigan’s Bengtson Center has got you covered so you can feel better about going uncovered.
Bulges: One of the most common beach-body-blockers, bulges are the bane of bikini-wearers everywhere. From a plastic surgery perspective, excess fat can be removed via liposuction, while sagging tissue that also adds to the look can be tightened with a lift. CoolSculpting® targets fat all over the body with nothing more than a precise temperature shift, while Kybella® is an injectable that specifically targets a double chin. If you’ve got fat you want to lose now, you’ve got options—and we have all of the options for you!
Mottled Skin: Many problems develop on the surface of your skin, so why not call a do-over? Resurfacing eliminates or reduces the appearance of wrinkles and discolorations, literally giving you a new surface—and a new, rejuvenated look. Greet blue skies (and your friends) with a fresh start.
Unwanted Hair: You could shave or wax or pluck, but laser hair removal gives you long-term results, from your face to your legs, back to front. Given the outfit of choice for swimming and lounging around the pool, many women focus on their bikini line. The Bengtson Center now features the state-of-the-art Nordlys laser, which destroys hair for long-term reduction.
Remember that ultraviolet radiation damages skin, so if you show it, protect it. Use a high-quality sunscreen to keep those rays from breaking down more healthy elements below the surface, causing spots to appear, intensifying wrinkles, and promoting sagging.
With proper protection in place and your cosmetic troubles behind you, you may be primed to bare more than you’ve ever dared this summer.
