19 April 2010It may not be quite warm enough to get into shorts yet, but it's lovely to see a little sun in the sky. It's amazing how much of a difference some sunshine can make to the way you're feeling isn't it? The nice weather has reminded that, contrary to what I may have thought a couple of weeks ago, summer is really on its way - and that means it's time to start preparing for the skimpy summer clothes and holiday outfits that will be coming our way. We have plenty of treatments to help you achieve a good body for the beach here at The Harley Medical Group, but some of them really need to be done a while in advance for you to get the full benefit from them. That means this is really the perfect time to start planning or to give us a call to talk about the kind of treatments you might be interested in. For example, this is really the ideal time to start thinking about laser hair removal as a few treatments are needed to achieve the optimum results. Spring is also perfect for skin peels and microdermabrasion treatments - it's like giving your face a good spring clean and allows you to get rid of all that old, dead winter skin. You need to stay out of bright sunshine for a short while after some of these treatments, so it's a great idea to have them before summer really hits to make sure you're able to take advantage of smooth skin and summer sun when it rolls around. On the other hand, this is also a popular time of year for people thinking of cosmetic surgery such as body sculpting and breast surgery, as they are thinking ahead to the summer months and making moves towards achieving a beach body they're happy to show off in a bikini. All this talk of beaches is making me keener than ever for summer to appear, I can't wait to slip into a floaty skirt and sandals and enjoy a nice iced coffee on my way to work!
