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, the reapplication of sunscreen and inadequate SPF can leave you with more brown spots than you bargained for! So what to do? The answer is sun spot removal and our Glendale office might be just the place.
Once you’ve completed your vacations and put sun exposure on the shelf, clean up should be in your fall plans. Depending on the extent of sun damage and the years of exposure there are options including sun spot removal and cosmetic laser treatment that can 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.
If you have 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 and 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!
