How to Repair Skin from Summer Sun Damage
The summer sun can have a major impact on your skin! Not only do the hot temperatures and humidity dry out your pores, but sweat can clog them, and constant sun exposure can cause freckles, pigmentation, melasma, or (worst case scenario) abnormal moles and skin cancer. Thankfully, there are a number treatments that target everything from dull complexions to wrinkles, dark spots, and everything in between give your skin the care it needs. Here are our top 5 dermatologist approved ideas for how to repair skin damage so you can look and feel your best come the fall.
For Sun Spots on Face, Chest and Arms: PicoSure
PicoSure treatments with the focus lens array will improve the sun spots and abnormal brown pigment resulting from excessive sun exposure, improve fine lines and wrinkles, and treat acne and other types of scars. Unique to the PicoSure, these results are achieved without redness, downtime, or pain. Depending on what is being treated and the patient’s skin type, most patients will require between two and five PicoSure treatments spaced at 4-6 week intervals.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Intense Pulsed Light / FotoFacial is a non-surgical solution for skin discoloration, including brown spots (also known as age spots and sun spots) and/or the redness of rosacea, broken capillaries, and spider veins. This gentle technology evens out skin tone and helps you look younger and more refreshed.
For Skin Discoloration: Fraxel Laser Treatments
The Fraxel Restore Dual Laser is designed for patients who want to obtain long-lasting improvement in the overall appearance of their skin and who do not wish to have downtime. The Fraxel Restore Dual can be used to rejuvenate the skin of the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms. Depending on each patient’s unique needs, the laser treatments will improve fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, abnormal brown pigment, brown spots, acne scars and other facial scars.
For Replenishing Moisture: Oxygen Facial
The oxygen facial exfoliates, cleanses, and hydrates your skin. Fine lines will be plumped up with the incredible hydrating power of the oxygen along with the antioxidant vitamins A, E, and C resulting in healthy, glowing, and vibrant skin.
