Say Goodbye to Sun Damage
By Gabriella, Laser Technician and Aesthecian at SKIN Clinics
Remember when tanning oil was common and people proudly bragged about their tans and how many hours they had spent baking in the sun? Remember being a kid and spending all day, every day outside in the sunshine without even thinking of sunscreen? The sun was our best friend, but little did we know, it would be our worst enemy in our later years. Chronic sun damage causes irregular brown and red discolorations of the skin, but the damage typically doesn’t show until we realize it too late. These discolorations can be a result of a sunburn that happened 20 years ago.
The good news is, we can get rid of those spots. With intense pulsed light, or better known as IPL, we can effectively and gently treats sunspots, freckles, age spots, rosacea, small red vessels, and other forms of skin discolorations. As light is changed to heat energy, it reaches our collagen beneath the skin’s surface. The body then naturally removes the injured tissue, giving our skin improved texture, tone, and a more youthful appearance. ‘But is it safe?’ you may wondering. We are proud users of Lumenis technology, which is backed by dozens of clinical papers proving how safe and efficient this treatment is. IPL is FDA cleared and can be used to safely treat any area of the body.
Usually a treatment can be done in less than an hour, and healing time is very minimal, lasting a few days at the most.
