Summertime, even this year, is a time to pause and take a deep breath — and think about what kind of self-care you’ve been putting off. Don’t feel bad, we all do it! Somehow, we’re always the last person on our list of priorities. The time to change that is now, and we have a few suggestions on how! (And yes, we do enjoy rhyming when the opportunity arises!)
Here are a few of our favorite treatments to recommend for summertime comfort, safety and rejuvenation — and they’re great all year round, as well!
If you’re tired of sweating through your clothes every day, not just in the summer but year-round, you may have hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating. First of all, we want you to know this is more common than you may think! Secondly, we can help you feel drier and fresher for good with miraDry®. MiraDry is the only treatment that is FDA-approved to drastically reduce underarm sweat in just one session. It does this by using thermal energy to target and eliminate sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are eliminated, they cannot come back, meaning you get to enjoy long-term sweat and odor reduction!
Top-Quality Skin Care — Specifically SPF!
Protecting your skin from the sun is vital year-round, rain or shine. Not only does daily use of sunscreen help reduce your risk of skin cancer, but it also dramatically reduces the signs of skin aging, because skin aging is largely caused by sun damage! Here in Alpharetta, we provide three different brands of clinically-proven, medical-grade skin care: Alastin®, SkinMedica® and Jan Marini® Skin Care. Here are just a few of our favorite sunscreens:
Alastin® HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36: A lightweight, mineral sunscreen that also protects from environmental pollution and counteracts infrared-generated free radicals.
SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 34: Protects skin not only from harmful UV rays but also from harmful infrared rays while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Jan Marini Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant SPF 33: This sunscreen combines water-resistant, broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection with oil control and advanced hydration for the skin.

There are few treatments more refreshing in the summertime than a HydraFacial®. A 30-minute HydraFacial here at SafiraMD intensely cleans and pampers your complexion without side effects or downtime.
