Living in California offers the perk of plentiful sunshine. The downside, however, is the toll the sun’s UV rays can take on your skin. Fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration are telltale signs of sun damage, lingering long after those warm, glowing days are gone.
If you’re wondering how to reverse this sun damage, this blog post will discuss 4 treatments that excel in giving your skin a refreshed, healthier look.
The Pearl fractional laser precisely targets the treatment area while leaving the surrounding skin untouched. This approach removes damaged cells on the skin’s surface in a controlled manner and sparks the regeneration process in its deeper layers.
Most patients see a marked improvement in skin texture and tone with a single treatment. As your skin produces new collagen over the next few months, the quality of your skin will continue to become more supple and radiant.
PicoSure laser rejuvenation delivers ultra-short bursts of energy to the skin in picoseconds—one trillionth of a second. This cutting-edge treatment is renowned for its safety across all skin types, presenting an ideal solution for individuals with darker skin tones who may experience complications with other lasers.
PicoSure penetrates the skin’s surface to target underlying discoloration while simultaneously creating controlled micro-injuries to promote the formation of new skin cells. PicoSure has a trio of wavelength options that allow us to personalize your treatment to specific skin concerns. While you may see some enhancements shortly after treatment, the most significant benefits emerge as the skin continues to rejuvenate itself in the weeks following the procedure.
Microneedling is a nonsurgical collagen induction therapy that targets a range of concerns associated with sun damage. Tiny needles create precise, controlled micro-injuries in the skin, triggering a process that prompts your skin to repair itself. Making the treatment even more powerful is the use of plasma, which contains growth factor proteins that help fuel tissue repair and collagen production.
Combining microneedling with the regenerative properties of plasma significantly enhances the body’s natural healing response. The symbiotic relationship between the two therapies amplifies the results, providing a more youthful, smoother, and brighter complexion with less downtime than more invasive procedures.
SkinMedica’s chemical peel combines high-quality active ingredients to deeply penetrate and renew sun-damaged and aging skin.
What sets this treatment apart is its ability to expedite skin exfoliation, sweeping away the layers of dead skin cells that contribute to a lackluster appearance. By invigorating the cell renewal process, it promotes a revitalized complexion characterized by a healthier, more even tone. You can often see improvements after just one session, but a series of peels—typically between 3 and 6—produces a more dramatic transformation.
And remember, once you’ve addressed sun damage with a laser treatment, it’s essential to focus on prevention. Using broad-spectrum sunscreen should be a non-negotiable part of your daily routine to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays and guard your skin’s health.
