First and foremost, in honor of Memorial Day, we at Crispin Plastic Surgery want to say thank you to all veterans, service men and women, and families of those currently serving as well as those we have lost in service. Your sacrifice to protect our freedom is immeasurable and we are so grateful for what you do.

For those that may be celebrating the start of summer with some fun in the sun this weekend, we have a few helpful tips to keep your skin safe this season.
  1. Sunscreen is your best friend, and an everyday moisturizer with added SPF is a must. Definitely apply and reapply if you’re planning to be in direct sunlight for an extended period of time. Keep an eye on any suspicious moles or sunspots. Remember, May is National Melanoma Awareness Month. It’s important to stay vigilant in monitoring your skin. Always get new or worrisome moles checked by a doctor just to be safe. Additionally, if you’re dealing with annoying age-spots, scars or discoloration, our Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments can remove blemishes and promote collagen growth to have your skin healthy and glowing in time for the weekend.
  2. Have fun with protective clothing. You can be stylish and safe! A fun, floppy hat can protect the areas of your body that are most vulnerable in the sun!
  3. Don’t forget to protect the pout. A protective lip balm with SPF will save your lips from getting dry and chapped in the sun.
  4. It’s always helpful to hydrate. Drinking water will help you fight the draining effects of sun exposure, in addition to the wonderful benefits it has for your skin and health!

Once you’re properly protected, it’s time for some fun in the sun! We hope you’re celebrating summer properly, but if anything is holding you back from feeling your best this summer, please give us a call for a free consultation! We’d love to work with you to personalize the best plan to achieve your goals and have you looking and feeling your best.
