Spring has officially sprung! That means it’s time to spring into action to get ready for the summer’s beach and poolside fun. Here are a few things to consider as you work on getting ready to bare it all (almost) this summer:
Whether it’s Pilates, running, yoga, walking, or a little bit of everything, find whatever works for you and get into it! Here are some ideas from Fitness magazine for getting that body healthy and bikini-ready. Be sure not to overdo it or make any drastic changes without consulting your doctor first. And most of all, have fun!
The harsh conditions of winter can leave us with layers of dull, dry skin that is definitely in need of a little TLC. Freshen your skin care routine, switching to a lighter moisturizer for the warmer weather. Make sure to gently exfoliate to slough off dead skin cells and uncover healthier cells. Laser skin resurfacing, offered at Vinings Surgery Center, gently and precisely removes microscopic layers of skin, tightening sagging skin and stimulating new collagen growth.
Who wants to spend time shaving to get ready to put on that swimwear? Laser hair removal, also available at Vinings Surgery Center, is an effective and efficient means of long-term hair removal. A highly concentrated beam of light vaporizes troublesome hair follicles to eliminate or significantly impede the hair’s regrowth.
For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance when shirtless, breast-reduction surgery can help. The procedure, performed by Dr. Colgrove, removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer and better contoured.
For help with any other “problem areas” you may be concerned about, there are other helpful procedures available.
Enjoy this time of renewal and refreshing, and have fun getting ready for summer!
