Summer fun is great for your wellbeing but not so great on your skin. If you’re wondering how you can correct the sun damage from the summer months, we have a variety of effective treatments for all skin types including laser treatments, peels, medical-grade skincare products. A skin consultation would be best to determine which treatment would be best for you. Laser treatments that we can provide to help reduce the appearance of sun damage are IPL and PicoSure Focus Lens. Microneedling is a physical way of diminishing the appearance and a Chemical Peel would be the chemical way of treating sun damage.
IPL is using an Intense Pulsed Light to bring the pigmentation to the surface of the skin, then anywhere from 3-10 days post treatment the pigment will start to get lighter (multiple treatments will be needed to see optimal results). The PicoSure Focus Lens is a laser treatment with minimal downtime. Our Focus Lens treatment is for benign pigmented lesions and will destroy abnormal amounts of melanin in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. Melanin is present in the superficial layers of the skin, the dermis, and the intraepidermal layers. The melanin is the chromophore that absorbs the intense laser energy causing the target (sun damage) to be destroyed.
Microneedling uses a device that contains 14 fine needles to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more even toned skin. Microneeding is most often used on the face, neck, and chest. In combination with microneedling a chemical peel can help diminish sun damage with the peeling of the superficial layers of the skin and reduce the appearance of the pigmentation.
