It’s that time of year again. The kids are back to school, the days are getting shorter and your you’re noticing the sunspots and skin texture issues no doubt. You’ve put your skin through a lot in the past few months, get your glow back on track with treatments and skincare that will reverse sun damage and reveal a new year of great skin.
SUN SPOT REMOVAL.
IPL PHOTOFACIAL / LIMELIGHT: The most effective sun spot removal and fastest way to rid your skin of pigmentation is the IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial aka the Limelight Laser. Our IPL laser targets each individual dark spot, brown spot, sun spot, melasma and even tiny veins. All of which can make our skin dull, uneven and aged. The intense targeted light heats only these pigmented spots and causes them to rise to the surface where they eventually fall off within a few days to a week or so. Combining an IPL treatment with a form of exfoliation or intense resurfacing will expedite your results significantly. more on IPL PHOTOFACIALS >>
MICRONEEDLING: Sun spot removal and pigmentation reduction can be significantly reduced with the resurfacing and regenerative properties in a microneedling treatment. The science behind the technique has been around for quite some time but the technology has improved to offer better results. Our clinic uses a Cosmopen which is a small mechanical pen like tool with microscopic needles that puncture the skin at a rapid, repeated rate. The tiny abrasions trigger a regenerative response in the skin to produce new skin cells and increase collagen. The renewal process uses collagen production to reduce fine lines, pores, scars and pigmentation. more on MICRONEEDLING >>
CHEMICAL PEELS: Another tried and true method of skin resurfacing is the glycolic peel. Our technicians have perfected the art with our secret high concentration yet gentle Jessner Peel formula that is available almost exclusively at Skin Solution Clinic. Chemical peels work on the surface layers of the skin to remove dead skin cells and pigmented spots that are in the upper layer of the dermis. The treatment is a great way to freshen up the skin quickly, as the results can be seen immediately. more about JESSNER PEEL >>
MICRODERMABRASION: If you prefer to skip the chemicals and laser approach to sun spot removal there is always the ever popular Microdermabrasion treatment. The technique uses a physical approach to resurfacing the top layer of the skin. A micro-diamond tipped suction device sloughs away dead skin and clears congested pores with every pass. Smooth, glowing skin is revealed and you can leave our clinic feeling refreshed with immediate results after initial redness subsides. This treatment is probably the most gentle method in that our technicians can adjust the aggressiveness of the exfoliation and the frequency of passes with the device. Those with sensitive skin will love this method of skin resurfacing. more about MICRODERMABRASION >>
