Problem skin in summer – prevention and treatment with HydraFacial®

High temperatures, sweat, chlorinated water and lots of sun all take their toll on our skin in summer. People with oily skin are now particularly prone to inflammation and spots, while others struggle with dry patches of skin. If you want to enjoy the summer with healthy and beautiful skin, you should take preventative measures and treat yourself to a HydraFacial every 4-6 weeks.

The sun is actually good for us, especially as it helps to produce the all-important vitamin D in our bodies. For our skin, however, the sun is more of an enemy than a friend. After all, it is responsible for up to 80% of visible skin ageing on the face. UV rays promote the formation of so-called free radicals. The consequences include the breakdown of collagen and elastin and the formation of pigmentation spots.

The dose makes the skin age

In principle, there is nothing wrong with a short sunbath. However, you should note the following:


  • Do as the southerners do: from 11.00 to 15.00, shade is the order of the day. This is because UV exposure is particularly high during this period.
  • To prevent skin problems such as Mallora’s acne, you should acclimatize your skin to the sun slowly and gradually.
  • Use a high-quality sunscreen and a skin care product tailored to your needs. The products from ZO® Skin Health are particularly recommended. We would be happy to advise you in our practice in Basel.

HydraFacial in summer – your skin will thank you!

Especially in the summer months, many people complain about spots, blackheads and blemished or oily skin. But the opposite, namely dry patches of skin and itching, can also become a problem in summer. Either way, the HydraFacial helps to rebalance the skin. After just 1-2 treatments, the treatment ensures smooth, healthy and pore-deep clean skin.

And this is how it works: The special skin removal and gentle acid peeling ensure that deposits, make-up residues and sebum in the pores are softened. This is followed by deep cleansing with a vacuum. In the next step, moisture in the form of hyaluronic acid and valuable care substances such as antioxidants, vitamins and minerals are infused into the skin. Last but not least, the skin is soothed and relaxed with LED therapy and a customized care mask.

The face feels smooth and firm immediately after the treatment. Two to three days later, your skin will become even fresher and more radiant.
