Dr Hala’s Top 5 Summer Skin Treatments
Updated: Jan 26
Are some treatments more summer-friendly than others?
The sun is shining bright and temperatures are rising. You’re planning day trips, BBQs, and holidays, and you want to look your best for the occasion. But did you know that there are some treatments better suited to the summer weather than others?
While you could have incredible results with treatments such as ablative laser or powerful peels, you may want to postpone them until Winter. Why? Your skin has increased susceptibility to sun damage during the recovery period for these treatments. So if you don’t feel like hiding away from the sun for weeks at a time, it’s definitely worth looking into your other options.
So without further ado, here’s our top 5 treatments to have you looking better than ever this summer…
How does skin cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, rejuvenation, and serum infusion sound to you? You can have all of this in just one treatment with the HydraFacial, the ultimate combination treatment suitable for all skin types.
Why do we recommend the HydraFacial?
Instantly brighter, smoother, rejuvenated, and radiant younger-looking skin with absolutely no downtime is a no brainer. You can expect:
A reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
A reduction in acne scars & active acne
Pigmentation & sun damage improvement
A more balanced and even skin tone
What’s more is the hydrating aspect of the HydraFacial (the secret is Hyaluronic Acid) can help stop your skin from becoming dehydrated in the summer sun!

2. Intraceutical Oxygen Facial
Known as the “red carpet facial”, Intraceuticals Oxygen is sure to make you stand out this Summer. The unique Oxygen delivery system means you’ll benefit from deeply delivered Hyaluronic Acid (HA), vitamins, antioxidants, and peptides. The result? Instant intensely hydrated, rejuvenated, and glowing skin.
Like the HydraFacial, your skin will also recover better from sun exposure with Intraceuticals, which is why it’s great for Summer.

What can you expect from Mesotherapy treatment and what are results? The treatment itself is a little different to our top 2 picks. You’ll have a bespoke cocktail of vitamins, HA, minerals, and other actives injected into your skin through microinjections. The result is skin hydration, rejuvenation, brightening, anti-aging and much more.
Did you notice the common trend so far? The intensely hydrating properties of HA are invaluable during summer and can make all the difference when your skin could be at risk of dehydration.
You may be surprised to see a laser treatment on a list of summer-friendly treatments, but bear with us a moment. ClearLift is a photoacoustic laser, which means it isn’t ablative and won’t remove any layers of skin – so you won’t be susceptible to sun damage afterwards.
If anything, it’s quite the contrary. One of the benefits of the ClearLift laser is that it shatters pigmentation. This can treat pigmentation that can be caused by sun exposure to leave you with a more even skin tone. The main benefit for you however, is increased collagen production in your skin giving you:
Reduced fine lines & wrinkles
Tighter and more elastic skin
Plumper and rejuvenated skin
5. IV Drip
The IV drip earns a spot in this list because of its sheer versatility. The vitamin and amino acid cocktails are tailored to your needs and can give you both physical improvements in your skin & body as well as mental improvements as well.
Depending on your choice of cocktail, here’s what you can expect:
Increased energy levels & improved recovery from exercise
Reduced fine lines & wrinkles
Reduced stress & anxiety as well as improved focus
Evened skin tone
IV drips could be great for busy summers to help you keep up with both work and plans with your friends!
