HAPPY FALL

Even though I love summer, I’m not too unhappy it’s over because I’m not crazy about the dark spots, damage and wrinkles caused by the sun and hot weather. Happily, there are three great actions we can take now to slough off these complexion spoilers.


1.
The mildest of these rejuvenators is my new Perfect 10 Peel, which is a peel of a highly effective blend of complementary medical-grade ingredients, including alpha and beta hydroxy acids, amino acids and an All-Trans-Retinol Complex.

It improves skin’s tone and texture, reduces the appearance of dark spots, wrinkles, fine lines and pore size. Application takes 10 minutes and peeling usually starts 2-3 days after application and should take 7 to 10 days to complete.


2.
Next in strength is Intense Pulsed Lightwhere safe, visible light emitted from a flash lamp lightens age spots and reduces diffuse redness and uneven pigmentation, helping to counteract sun damage found on the face, neck, chest and hands.

After treatment, skin looks a little discolored for a few days. The pigmented areas will initially darken and then slough off over the next 3 to 7 days. After the sloughing, your skin will look smoother and fresher.


3.
The third possibility—and the strongest—is Fraxel® DUAL laser, which is really two lasers because it utilizes two wavelengths, something the original Fraxel® did not do.

Thus we can treat skin both superficially and in its deeper layers. For patients in their 30s or 40s with mild sun damage and the beginning of fine lines, it can even out pigmentation and improve the fine lines. For patients in their 50s and 60s with greater sun damage and deeper wrinkles, the surface skin changes can be addressed along with the deeper wrinkles, even scars.

The results of treatment are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter and show more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal.

Give the office a call to set up a consultation and learn which treatment is suited for your needs. I look forward to helping you have the best skin of your life.
