The cold months are here, and what better time than now to repair sun damage. Winter is ideal for treatments that erase the effects of too much exposure to the sun.

Photofacials or IPL treatments can benefit patients who are concerned with sunspots, brown spots, and multiple freckles.  This FDA approved, patented technology combines light and radio frequency.  There is little downtime with this treatment, and discomfort is minimal.  I had the opportunity to experience this treatment, and the discomfort was minor. (Which by the way I don’t tolerate pain very well)  IPL treatments can be performed on other areas such as hands, neck, and chest that have often been exposed to the sun without proper sunscreen.  Tonya and Anna can determine how many treatments will be necessary for optimal results.

Chemical peels are another noninvasive option for reversing sun damage.  Skinmedica’s rejuvenize peel is the best for sun damage and improvement of skin tone and texture.  The rejuvenize peel can be done during your lunch hour and peeling can last up to a week. A series of rejuvenize peels are beneficial and yield the best outcome.

Even though it is winter, be sure to wear SPF 30 or above after receiving either one of these treatments.  Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, and possible sunburn could occur without sunscreen. Schedule your appointment today and reveal your best skin ever!
