Just because the summer season may be winding down, doesn’t mean you can cut corners on your skin care regimen! Dr. Bryant and Refine Surgery caught up with Samantha from the Aesthetic Edit to learn more about five things you may want to avoid when managing your skin care routine this summer and fall! The Cliff Notes version is below. All the treatments listed below can be highly effective and are more commonly performed during the fall, winter, and spring months.


Chemical Peels – It’s best to avoid significant direct sunlight for a bit afterward.

Laser Hair Removal – Tan skin from summer vibes can make the treatment less effective

Prescription Retinoids – Always wear a powerful sunscreen when using retinoids! There is an increased risk in hyperpigmentation and irritation with heavy sun exposure.

Sclerotherapy – The subtle lumps and bumps and discoloration that you may have after treatment might be best suited for the winter months

Liposuction – The need to wear compression garments for a few days after treatment can be a summertime buzz kill if you’re not prepared.
