Summer’s over! It was a hot one, and if you were not careful with the sunblock, you may have caused some changes in the skin’s appearance you do not want…….sun damage. You may have heard of the term “PhotoAging”.  Basically it is the changes that occur to your skin after being exposed to sun and UV rays, that damage and age your skin. Unwanted pigmentation, loss of tone, fine lines and wrinkles are some of the things caused by the sun. Age spots (sun spots) are caused by the over stimulation of the cells producing pigment (melanocytes).  Inflammation from the sun’s UV rays or injury to the skin will increase this production, leaving you with spots, uneven pigmentation, loss of elasticity, wrinkles or even broken vessels.  First, let me say all skin spots should be evaluated by an MD.

That being said to remove sunspots and improve your skins health, there are many treatment options out there, some of which truly work, and some which are just new “hype”. In the Fall the kids return to school, and it is a great time to repair the damage caused. Maybe, you just decided it is time for some improvement in the appearance of the skin.

Tried and true for many years is an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment or Photofacial. This light based treatment in the laser family continues to improve with newer treatment heads for more effective treatments. This will help address brown spots, redness fairly quickly and give your skin a boost. During that treatment Fractional Laser Treatments can be used to improve the appearance of fine lines, and accomplish some tightening. Combination non ablative/ ablative laser treatments can improve the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and give a tightening effect. It also will eradicate sun damage and Actinic Keratosis.

Laser treatments at our office are usually combined with ZO Skin Health products which continue to make improvements and sustain the results achieved.

Thru the end of October, we are offering in our office $100 off any of the above laser treatments. In addition, any purchase of ZO products over $250 are given a travel size Daily Power Defense and Pore Refiner. Strengthening the skin and tightening the pores makes your skin look and feel better.
