Dermatology Treatments in Summer

dermatology treatments in summer

When summer arrives, many of us become suddenly aware of our skin’s imperfections. Time in the sun can be unequivocally therapeutic, but it also means more sun damage. Joyful hours in the sunshine can also come with sunspots, dull or uneven skin tone, sagginess, and fine lines and wrinkles. So are there dermatology treatments that allow you to revel in the summer sun and still treat your skin to keep it looking youthful, radiant and healthy all season? Absolutely. Just select a regimen of in-office dermatology treatments that pinpoint and treat the results of UV damage, as well as skincare treatments that treat and protect your skin from further harm.

How Stars Prep for the Oscars

Lancer - Oscar Prep edit

You already know many of the ways stars prep for awards season – with the Venus Legacy, stem cell facials, cleanses and months-long exercise regimes – but for the biggest red carpet of the year, it’s time to pull out the (really) big guns. Here are three cutting-edge treatments, two of which are exclusive to Lancer Dermatology, that harness the skin’s ability to self-repair. Nothing looks better on the red carpet than a natural glow, which is why we love these three non-invasive, filler-free treatments that will make anyone ready for the glow of the spotlight – whether it’s the Oscars or a real-life red carpet.


PicoWay is an innovative dual wavelength laser that fires one thousand times faster than the fastest laser currently available to the medical community. The ultra-fast picosecond bursts of energy transmitted to the tissue enable the laser to break up pigment more effectively and trigger the body’s own self-repair mechanisms. Dr. Lancer is the first dermatologist in the United States to have this laser in practice. His decision to use this technology is bolstered by the fact that the laser’s ability to trigger self-healing in the skin aligns perfectly with his anti-aging philosophy of stimulating healing self-repair.

Venus Viva

Venus Viva is a NanoFractional Radio Frequency machine that is designed to reduce pore size, correct textural irregularities, soften and diminish wrinkles, and tighten skin laxity, all with minimal downtime and discomfort. The machine uses consistent selectional dermal heating to achieve optimal, immediate and long term results. Dr. Lancer is the first dermatologist in the US to have this machine in his practice.

The Vampire Facial 

Technically known as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Microneedling, the “Vampire Facial” involves taking a patient’s blood, putting it in a centrifuge so that the plasma separates from the red blood cells, and then using a microneedling pen to aerate the skin, while applying the plasma topically. The needling stimulates the fibroblasts in the skin to speed up production of collagen, elastin and growth factor, giving skin an amazing glow. This treatment also corrects fine lines, pigmentation, and topical scars. It is ideal to have in adjunct to regular use of The Method because it employs the same science, the skin’s ability to self-repair.

Dr. Lancer Devotee: Ryan Seacrest


They call him the hardest working man in Hollywood, so it only stands to reason that he’d need a skincare regimen that works overtime too. With a packed schedule that spans from early a.m. call times for On Air with Ryan Seacrest to evenings hosting American Idol and production work sandwiched in between, you’d think the toll of his demanding schedule might show up on his face. But Ryan Seacrest doesn’t look a day over 29. (He’s actually 39.) Of course, with so little time to spare, Ryan requires a pared down skincare system, which is why he’s a fan of our simple, at-home, 3-step Method. He has also spilled Dr. L’s skincare secrets on air (listen here). And when he is able to squeeze in a visit to our dermatology offices, he can’t resist a facial with our resident aesthetician Louise Deschamps for the ultimate Lancer glow.
