Though Memorial Day and Labor Day, picnics, BBQs and days of fun in the sun sound wonderful, they can take their toll on your skin. While moisturizers and sunscreen help keep your skin hydrated and protected from the sun’s UV rays, sun damage still happens.
Luckily, there are some med spa treatments for sun damage that work wonders for your skin woes.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that exfoliates dead skin cells from the surface of your skin using microscopic crystals. These crystals and the dead skin cells are then collected through a vacuum system. In addition to reducing the appearance of sun damage, you may experience the reduction of small wrinkles, age spots and even acne scars.
Microneedling is a treatment that uses hundreds of tiny needles that puncture the surface of your skin. These tiny injuries stimulate your body’s natural healing process, including increased collagen production. This helps to turn back the clock and improve your sun damaged skin. As with microdermabrasion, microneedling can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and scarring.
Sciton BBL Photofacial
Sciton BBL Photofacial is a broadband light technology that addresses sun damage by encouraging new collagen growth, eliminating fine blood vessels that cause redness and removing melanin that contributes to sun and age spots. During photofacial treatment, a handpiece glides over the surface of the skin, delivering light in precise pulses. Photofacial treatment requires 4 to 6 treatments spaced a few weeks apart, with each treatment lasting about 20 to 30 minutes.
While protecting your skin from the sun with sunscreen and extra coverage is best, these med spa treatments for sun damage can have you looking radiant in no time.
