Angela Evans, Plastic Surgery Nurse Practitioner and Licensed Esthetician, says “The combination of sun exposure and dry summer heat can leave skin with a dull finish and splotchy pigmentation as well as fine lines and wrinkles.”
Skin texture and pigment problems are underestimated when it comes to adding years to your appearance, and both can be improved upon through in-office procedures and nutrient supplementation.
