We’ve all had our fun in the sun during the summer months, but with winter upon us, it’s time to reverse some of the damage caused by the sun’s harmful UV rays. The expert staff at Divine Medspa are happy to share their top five ways to reverse summer skin damage, so you can start the new year off with a refreshed and renewed complexion.
1. IPL Photofacial
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, or the IPL Photofacial, uses specialized LED lights to target hyperpigmented or damaged cells in the deep layers of your skin to provide you with a restored and refreshed look. This non-invasive treatment is perfect for reducing sun spots and other skin damage by treating the hyperpigmentation at its source.
2. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are a popular way for our patients to get rid of their summer skin damage all at once. A chemical peel uses a unique and specialized chemical solution to gently exfoliate the uppermost layers of skin. The “peel” part of your chemical peel treatment takes place after your appointment, when your dead skin cells begin to slough off the face. The intense peeling over the next five to 10 days removes dead and damaged skin, leaving behind a beautifully refreshed face.
Microneedling has stolen the spotlight in recent years, and for good reason. This minimally invasive procedure uses small, hair-like microneedles to puncture the skin and create very small wounds called micro-channels. These micro-channels help your skin better absorb nourishing serums and also trigger your body’s natural production of collagen, for restored and refreshed skin that’s ready for a new year.
4. Sun Spot Treatments
Our sun spot treatments are the most effective way to get rid of your specific areas of sun damage. Our sun spot treatments use the PicoWay® Resolve Fusion fractional laser to remove unwanted hyperpigmentation and damaged cells underneath the skin’s surface. This cutting-edge laser technology gives our patients flawless results without the lengthy downtime and recovery period associated with traditional laser treatments.
5. At-Home Skincare
At-home skincare is one of the best ways to take care of your skin on the daily and ensure your treatments are providing you with the best results possible. We always recommend our patients use medical-grade skincare with the highest-quality ingredients, like the ZO® Skin Health skincare line. If you’re not sure where to start in your skincare routine, we’ll be more than happy to sit down with you and ensure you’re using the right products to protect your skin. Contact us to set up your free one-on-one consultation with one of our expert staff members. In light of recent events, we are also happy to offer our patients free virtual consultations, so you can get your questions answered in the comfort of your very own home.
