Summer Skin Prep: How to Get Glowing Skin for the Summer 

Summer is right around the corner, which means more sunny days outside by the pool, beach, and even trips. It also means less makeup, more sweat, and increased exposure to sun rays and other external pollutants. If glowing, clear skin for the summer is your goal, skin prep should start a few months before the season begins. We've gathered our favorite treatments for complete skin rejuvenation to help your skin look its best, bringing out your inner glow. 

These treatments require avoiding excessive sun exposure, sweating, saunas, or heavy exercise until the skin is fully healed.  


From addressing acne scars to evening out texture, microneedling is the "it girl" treatment for achieving smooth skin. It improves skin texture, reduces acne marks and scarring, minimizes large pores, softens fine lines and wrinkles, rejuvenates the skin, and improves skin tone. 

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure in which the skin is lightly pricked with tiny, sterilized needles, triggering a boost in collagen production. Collagen, the essential protein responsible for skin elasticity, plays a crucial role in maintaining a youthful and vibrant appearance. About 4-8 weeks after treatment, collagen and elastin levels in the skin begin to increase, leading to significant improvements in texture and appearance. We advise 3-6 sessions, with 4-6 weeks between each session, to achieve optimal results. Your provider will design a personalized treatment regimen tailored to your needs. 

If you’d like to amplify the benefits, consider adding PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) to your microneedling session. With its concentrated healing plasma and growth factors, PRP speeds up the healing process and stimulates skin renewal. It also enhances collagen and elastin production, effectively treating scars, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture. Learn more about Microneedling and its benefits here.

If you’re in Miami, microneedling at ALEXIS LAUREN is the best place to get this treatment done for the best results. 

Deep Chemical Peels 

Shed away the damage from Fall, Winter, and Spring with deep chemical peels, a must for maintaining brightness and skin texture. This intensive treatment removes the top layers of skin through chemical exfoliation, prompting healthy regeneration. Deep chemical peels treat acne scarring, sun damage, melasma, and pigmentation while also softening wrinkles. The downtime for this treatment is about one week. You will begin peeling by the third day and finish peeling after about one week. The peeling is worth it, with results offering an instant glow and a noticeable reduction in scars and wrinkles almost immediately. 


The Rise of Botox: Miami's Trendy Approach to Ageless Beauty 

If you want to ensure smooth, wrinkle-free skin for the summer in Miami, Botox at ALEXIS LAUREN is the answer. Botox injections reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by blocking signals from nerves to muscles, allowing them to relax. This helps prevent the formation of new wrinkles. At ALEXIS LAUREN in Miami, Botox is one of our most popular non-surgical procedures. It is a minimally invasive treatment that is quick and seamless with no downtime afterward. Botox settles in after 2 weeks, then slowly metabolizes. It is normal to have movement back at 6-8 weeks & most of your movement back by 3-4 months. The more consistently you treat, the smoother your fine lines will be over time as we prevent them. Learn more about Botox and its benefits here. 

Prevention Is Important Too

ALEXIS LAUREN's Collective Cabinet offers a curated selection of sunscreens to keep your skin protected. Sunbetter Tone Smart SPF 75 by Skinbetter Science is a creamy lotion with a hint of color, perfect as a primer or a light-coverage foundation replacement.
