The summer can be very harsh on our skin, with more sun exposure and outdoor activity than any other time of year. While sun screen is always your best defense when playing outside, often reapplication of sunscreen and inadequate SPF can leave you with more brown spots than you bargained for!
If you have completed your vacations and put sun exposure on the shelf until next year, then clean up and sun spot removal at our Glendale office should be in your future. Depending on the extent of sun damage and years of exposure there is something either within the aesthetic menu or laser treatments to erase the weathered look for everyone. Simple glycolic acid peels with little to no shedding can drastically lighten and brighten your skin. Add in some medical grade at home skin care and your skin can be back on track in no time.
For more severe damage with large brown patches, redness and textural changes, then more aggressive chemical peels or laser treatments may be required. Photofacial laser treatments are excellent for erasing unwanted pigment from the skin, while Laser Genesis will smooth skins fine lines and drastically reduce redness associated with chronic sun exposure and flared up Rosacea. Both of these laser treatments are pain free and offer no social down time. Often we will combine these treatments for optimal, dramatic results.
A yearly maintenance protocol is also recommended for many years of youthful looking skin. Remember a spotted, ruddy, red/brown skin tone is always more aging than a few wrinkles, so make this the fall you address clearer, brighter, more vibrant skin!
