Sun Protection for Getting Outdoors

There has never been a better time for outdoor activities. In fact, health experts have generally agreed that being outside during the COVID-19 pandemic is safer than participating in public indoor pursuits. But even with its major benefits, staying active outdoors brings with it a different health concern – sun damage and the potential for skin cancer. So, while you are practicing social distancing outside, make sure you also keep sun protection in mind.

We’ve got some great news when it comes to staying safe in the sun. There are several effective products that offer the type of broad-spectrum, physical sun block you need to really protect your skin.

Sun Protection and Report for Your Face, Neck, Chest and Hands

Eryfotona Actinica is a fast-absorbing product that provides all-mineral, broad-spectrum sun protection. With its ultralight emulsion formula, it absorbs easily so that you get all of the protection and none of the streaks. Even better, it contains DNA Repairsomes, which harness naturally occurring enzymes that are clinically proven to repair existing sun damage. Three scientists won a Nobel Prize in 2015 for their work demonstrating that the photolayse enzyme repaired 45% of existing damage! That means, not only are you protecting yourself now, you are also improving the damage you did at that senior skip day, tanning-oil Caribbean vacation, or the 18 holes you played in Florida.

Sun Block for Your Body

Our clients have loved EltaMD UV Lotion Broad-Spectrum SPF 30 for years, and with good reason. This moisturizing, broad-spectrum sunscreen for the body protects and promotes healthy skin because it is formulated with transparent zinc oxide and contains Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid. It’s totally invisible and comfortable for all-day wear despite its powerful protection.

When You are On the Go

For quick sun protection on the go, look no farther than Arieed MD Reflect Sunscreen Powder. This amazing chemical-free product features a self-dispensing brush that allows for buildable coverage that feels lightweight and luxurious on your skin. Nevertheless, it’s also long lasting and water resistant with SPF 30 protection.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for everyone. If you are able to take advantage of some socially distanced outdoor time, please do, just protect your skin at the same time!

Frequently Asked Questions

What can EMSCULPT NEO do for me?

EMSCULPT NEO is an amazing noninvasive body sculpting treatment. It’s perfect for patients who are looking to get summer body ready! With this state-of-the-art, two-in-one technology, you build muscle and burn fat at the same time! This treatment provides a 30% reduction in subcutaneous fat and 25% growth in muscle on the treated area after a recommended number of treatments.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

While you lie down and relax, EMSCULPT NEO sends high-intensity energies deep below your skin, making your muscles contract in a big way that is like doing thousands of crunches or squats in a few minutes. While your muscles are contracting, the energy from the applicator simultaneously sends warmth to your fat cells, heating them up to the point of destruction. So you build real muscle from the contractions while destroying fat cells that are later naturally eliminated by your body.

How many EMCULPT NEO treatments will I need?

The recommended treatment plan is 4-6 treatments, one week apart. Depending on the patient, you may see improvement in your muscle tone, core strength and posture within a few weeks. And you’ll see fat reduction continue for about 12 weeks after your last treatment.

Are there any patients for whom you do not recommend EMSCULPT NEO?

EMSCULPT NEO is great because it has been shown to be safe and approved for all body and skin types. Contraindications include hernia, recent surgery, and pregnancy, so if a patient has any of these conditions, they should wait until they don’t to get EMSCULPT NEO.

What is the difference between CoolSculpting and EMSCULPT NEO?

CoolSculpting is a well-known treatment that is excellent for reducing unwanted fat in targeted areas. EMSCULPT NEO also reduces fat, but it has the benefit of building muscle, which is what its predecessor EMSCULPT was made to do.

Which treatment you choose depends on what your body needs and your personal goals. If you have great muscle tone and only need to get rid of some extra fat in a specific area like your abdomen or below your chin, CoolSculpting is an excellent option. But if you have loss of muscle tone and need more of a lift or tightening to a certain area like your abs or butt, EMSCULPT NEO is your two-in-one solution.

What is your favorite thing about EMSCULPT NEO?

Not only is this treatment super convenient with one treatment lasting only 30 minutes, but there is also no downtime! Patients can go about their day as they normally would immediately after their visit.
