Summer is all about sunshine, warmth, and outdoor fun, but it can be harsh on your skin. With the increased UV exposure and added heat and humidity, keeping your skin healthy during summer can be tricky.

But no need to worry! At Madison Wellness & Aesthetic Center, we’ve got your back. We’ve created a guide for summer-safe skin treatments to help you maintain a lovely and glowing complexion all season long.

What Skin Treatments Are Safe for Summer?

Summer can be harsh on your skin, but that doesn’t mean you have to avoid all facial treatments. Here are some safe and effective options to keep your skin glowing during the sunny months.


Dermaplaning is perfect for achieving that summer glow while preparing your skin for increased sun exposure with minimal irritation.

The top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hairs, commonly known as peach fuzz, are removed with a sterile surgical scalpel. The result is a smoother, brighter skin tone. This procedure also improves your skin’s ability to absorb skin care products more efficiently. 

The method is straightforward yet precise. An aesthetician will thoroughly clean your skin to remove dirt and oil. Afterward, they will hold your skin taut and use the scalpel to make light, feathery strokes across the face. 

Dermaplaning exfoliates the skin and promotes cell renewal. It addresses common summer skin concerns such as uneven skin tones, dull skin, and the appearance of wrinkles.

The benefits of dermaplaning include:

  • Gentle exfoliation
  • Safe for all skin tones
  • Immediate results
  • No downtime
  • Removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz
  • Easier application of skincare and makeup

Hydrafacial MD

Another popular facial treatment for summer is Hydrafacial MD. It combines the benefits of dermabrasion, chemical peel, and automated painless extractions to improve overall skin health and appearance.

The process begins with deep cleansing and exfoliation. The Hydrafacial tool gently removes dead skin cells without causing irritation or inflammation. 

A chemical peel is applied to soften impurities, followed by a painless extraction process to remove dirt, debris, and blackheads. 

The skin is infused with hydrating and nourishing serums to promote collagen production and rejuvenate the skin.

The benefits of Hydrafacial MD include:

  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Non-invasive
  • No downtime
  • Addresses various skin concerns
  • Restores a radiant complexion


Summer can wreak havoc on your skin, making it appear dull and flaky. Microdermabrasion is a gentle and effective treatment that removes the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresh, radiant skin.

During the procedure, one of our aestheticians will use a small handheld device to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin using tiny crystals or a diamond-tipped wand. The process also stimulates collagen production, resulting in a smoother and more even complexion.

The benefits of microdermabrasion include:

  • Quick and painless
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Safe for summer months
  • Target dull, flaky skin
  • Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Tips for Maintaining Healthy Skin During Summer

  • Always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and reapply every two hours.
  • Wear protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses when exposed to the sun.
  • Seek shade and avoid direct sunlight.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
  • Keep your skin healthy and hydrated with a gentle cleanser and moisturizer.
  • Avoid harsh exfoliants or facial treatments that may irritate the sun-exposed areas of your skin.
