Don’t let sun damage hold you back from having fun in the sun this summer! Too much time in the sun without proper protection frequently leads to sun spots that show up as darker colored spots on the skin. Not to be mistaken with freckles, sun spots are typically larger and have an irregular border. Although sun spots or age spots are relatively harmless, they can cause us to appear older than we actually are. Fortunately, the damage that is done from too much time in the sun can be addressed with innovative cosmetic treatments that we proudly offer for the convenience of our clients here at Azala.
Check out our top 3 featured procedures that address sun damage:
Photodynamic therapy, also known as PDT, is used to significantly improve sun damage and deep pigmentation, improve skin tone and texture, reduce pore size and create healthy, luminous skin.*
Photodynamic therapy is an FDA-approved option that uses a topical medication like Levulan® which is applied to the skin and activated with a Broad Band Light (BBL™) treatment. BBL is a Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser that helps the solution activate and penetrate the skin.* Treatments are usually well tolerated with minimal discomfort.* Patients report the feeling to be similar to a mild sunburn.* Following treatment, the unhealthy treated cells will rapidly flake and peel off, revealing the healthy new skin underneath.*
It can also be used to treat precancerous skin cells such as actinic keratosis. During treatment, light causes a photosensitizing agent to react with oxygen to form a chemical that eliminates cancerous cells.*
We offer a variety of chemical peels to help improve the tone and texture of the skin.*
Chemical peels improve the appearance of age spots by using a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin.* The new skin that replaces it is usually smoother, less pigmented, and less wrinkled in appearance.*
For sun spots, our VI peel contains trichloroacetic acid (TCA) which stimulates collagen production and promotes deep tissue renewal that is highly effective for treating sun spots.* We also offer a mild glycolic acid peel that is very gentle while also effectively addressing signs of aging and gradually peeling off to reveal healthy and radiant skin while expelling darker pigment.*
Chemical peels are nice fresheners and can help with brightening overall dull tone.*
MicroPen treatments address both hyperpigmentation and scars on the face and body.* They also improve fine lines, deep wrinkles, texture, and enlarged pores.* During the procedure, a microneedling tool creates tiny injuries to the skin in order to stimulate collagen production, which is the body’s natural skin repair agent.*
Each treatment includes the infusion of pharmaceutical grade serums such as hyaluronic acid (HA), growth factor, antioxidants and other nutrient-rich ingredients into deeper layers of the skin. The result is lasting hydration, collagen stimulation, and the repair and regeneration of the tissue.*
MicroPen is effective at treating sun spots as well as tightening loose facial skin to produce a glowing and more youthful complexion.* Treatments are also frequently used in combination with PRP therapy to amplify results.*
