The Best Treatments for Glowing Summer Skin | Rochester Med Spa

We all enjoy getting to know the sun again after long winter months! One thing any good skin professional will tell you: be wary of the sun. No, we aren’t going to lecture you about sunscreen; we’ve actually already discussed the best sunscreens for your skin!

What we are going to cover is the fact that your skin in general is more sensitive in the summertime, which is why it’s better to get certain treatments over others during this season. Let’s talk about our favorite summer skin care treatments at Envision Aesthetics! 

Treatments for summer skin care

Spending time out in the heat and sun can dry out your skin and leave it feeling dehydrated. The biggest priority for summer skin care is to get rid of that dryness and rehydrate your skin. We have several treatment options to help transform your skin from dull to divine ✨

Clinical Facial

What it is

We provide customized clinical facials at Envision to treat each patient’s unique skin type and concerns. We provide a variety of facials including our Medical Grade Facial, Back Facial, Gentleman’s Facial, Neck & Décolleté Treatment, Eye Treatment, and Lip Treatment. Whatever your concerns are, we have something to give your skin a premium treatment.

What it treats

Your customized facial can treat the following skin conditions:

  • Dry skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven tone and texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Active acne
  • Acne scars

We take your skin type into account when creating a personalized facial for you, whether you’re treating signs of aging, sun damage, acne, dryness, or other concerns.

Why it’s great for summer skin care

A clinical facial at Envision is a fantastic summertime treatment because it has no recovery time. These gentle yet effective facials won’t make your skin more sensitive to sun and heat, and they are a great way to get ready for a vacation or to simply treat yourself.

Salt Facial

What it is

If your foremost concern is getting rid of dry, dead skin cells, our Salt Facial is the summer fling for you This 60-minute facial treatment uses a combination of physical exfoliation with sea salt (a skin-loving wonder ingredient); ultrasound technology to deliver antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid into the skin; and ends with multi-wavelength LED phototherapy to treat acne, reduce redness, and promote collagen production.

What it treats

Salt Facial treats the following skin conditions to renew your skin:

  • Pigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Acne
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Redness

After your Salt Facial, you’ll notice an improvement in your skin’s appearance and a glowy, hydrated complexion.

Why it’s great for summer skin care

Our skin gets dry from the sun and its summer heat. If you’ve been spending time out in the elements, your skin can get a build up of dirt, oil, and dead skin cells. What’s worse is that dry skin ages more quickly. The Salt Facial combats dryness and promotes hydration through its three-step process to get rid of dullness and create a luminous, dewy complexion.


What it is

INTRAcel is a microneedling resurfacing treatment that uses radio frequency (RF) technology to stimulate collagen production in the skin. It punctures the top layer of your skin with teeny tiny needles, which creates micro-wounds on the surface. This kickstarts your body’s natural healing process and collagen production. INTRAcel’s technology provides dramatic results to give you gorgeous summer skin!

What it treats

INTRAcel targets a wide variety of skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Mild wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scars
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin laxity

Why it’s great for summer skin care

Intracel is different from traditional microneedling because of its radio frequency technology. This makes for a much more gentle treatment without the need for any downtime! Intracel is the perfect summer skin care treatment for when you find yourself busy with summer fun but still want an impactful skin treatment.

Get plump, youthful-looking skin with dermal fillers and Botox

Dermal fillers are one of the easiest and quickest skin treatments to make an immediate difference in your features. 

Dermal fillers can treat:

  • Facial wrinkles and folds
  • Thin lips
  • Sagging skin
  • Aging hands
  • Indented scars
  • Facial hollowness

Let’s talk about why fillers are a great summertime skin treatment.

Summer sun approved

Unlike certain skin care treatments (e.g. strong laser resurfacing treatments), fillers are a safe treatment for the summer because they do not make your skin more sensitive to the sun or heat  

Minimal to no downtime

Dermal fillers require very little downtime, and sometimes none at all! You can get right back to your summer activities after your filler treatment, making it convenient for your schedule, whether you’re traveling or just enjoying the season.

Nonsurgical results

Along with the benefit of minimal to no downtime, you can get incredible cosmetic results with dermal fillers without going under the knife. You won’t have to spend your summer indoors recovering to achieve fuller lips, youthful under eyes, defined cheekbones, and more! 

Expert injector

The biggest benefit of dermal fillers at Envision Aesthetics is that our very own Dr. Whipple,  a Cosmetic and Reconstructive Oculofacial Plastic Surgeon, performs all of our patients’ injections!

Dermal filler product options

At Envision we offer multiple options for dermal filler products so that our patients can get the best results. We can help you decide the best product for you in a free filler consultation. In this consultation, we will discuss your individual goals and expectations for dermal filler. After that, we’ll create a customized treatment plan that includes our professional recommendation for the filler product that is best for you. 

We carry the following dermal filler brands at Envision:

Botox & Dysport | Neuromodulators

The previous benefits also apply to our other types of cosmetic injections, neuromodulators! We offer neuromodulators as an effective wrinkle treatment that stops the movement that causes wrinkle formation with natural results. 

Neuromodulators can treat:

  • Dynamic wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Glabellar lines (11s between brows)
  • Forehead lines
  • And more!

There are many possibilities for neuromodulator injections, and we can use them in other areas of the face after examination. More recently, we’ve been doing Botox lip flip procedures as well as Botox for TMJ (Temporomandibular joint dysfunction) to alleviate jaw pain. With Dr. Whipple’s injection expertise, our clients receive the gold standard of care with our neuromodulator injections. 

Just like dermal fillers, these treatments are safe for summer and require little to no downtime. The procedure typically takes just 15 minutes, and you’ll be back to your regular schedule right afterward. We’ll find the best neuromodulator product for your skin goals between our three products we offer: Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.

General Summer Skin Care Tips

There are many things you can do at home and form as habits to take care of your skin for the summer. Below are our top summer skin care tips from our skin care experts.

Besides sunscreen, one of the easiest ways to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging effects is with a wide-brimmed hat. (Bonus, it also protects the skin on your scalp which is also susceptible to burning!) Whether you’re on a morning walk, working in your garden, or out with a friend, a hat will ensure you’re comfortable and protected. Find a style you like and stick with it!

Regular Cleansing

We tend to sweat more in the humid months, and you shouldn’t let that sweat sit on your skin for long. Sweat on the skin can cause acne and irritation. To avoid this, make sure to cleanse your face and body when you’ve been out sweating in the heat. 


When you sweat, your body is actively losing water. Make sure to replenish it by drinking enough water! We swear by keeping around a water bottle we really enjoy to ensure that we use it (It’s way better than endless dishes or empty plastic bottles!). Remember that your skin is an organ, and all of our organs need water to function properly. Drink plenty of water and you’ll feel the positive effects on your skin and the rest of your body!


“You weren’t going to lecture us about sunscreen!” We lied ❤️ Whether you like it or not, sunscreen is the #1 way to take care of your skin in the summer (at least SPF 30). With so many options out there, you’re bound to find one you like! There are even tinted sunscreen options to give you some coverage while protecting your skin.
