Summer is a time for sunshine, vacation, and family fun. But sometimes the memories made can also be visible on your skin. Your skin can take a major hit after a long and glorious summer. However, Med Spa treatments can be perfect for repairing your skin. Here are some of the best Med Spa treatments for combatting sun damage.
Non-Invasive Treatments to Even Skin Tone
A nice summer glow is an obvious sign of a well-spent summer. However, too much sun can create uneven skin tone and sunspots, leaving your skin feeling lack-luster.
Photofacial treatments such as Lumecca IPL Skin Rejuvenation can help restore your skin to a healthy-looking glow. Lumecca uses intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to target skin irregularities such as dark spots, acne scars, and even Rosacea.
This advanced laser offers a quick, safe, and effective treatment plan in as little as 2 treatments, compared to other lasers that may take a total of 4-5 treatments to see the desired results.
Minimally Invasive Treatments to Combat Aging Skin
Not only does sun exposure cause immediately visible effects on the skin, but it can damage your skin’s healing processes as well. When this happens, your skin struggles to “bounce back” faster. This leads to increased wrinkling and potential sagging from the damage.
Botox for Sun Damage
Botox is an injectable treatment that will temporarily “freeze” the muscles responsible for causing these wrinkles, allowing the wrinkles to relax and fade. The doctors can perform this procedure in their office in less than half an hour, with few side-effects.
Is Botox Safe?
Botox, or botulinum toxin, is widely used and FDA approved. Because Botox is not a permanent procedure, it does not cause long-term nerve damage to the area of administration. With few adverse side-effects and complications, such as temporary headaches and mild bruising that will subside, Botox is a safe and temporary solution to combat cosmetic issues.
Dermal Fillers for Sun Damage
Dermal or “soft-tissue” fillers are another injectable treatment to fight against signs of aging due sun exposure. We’re all familiar with the term “baby face” and dermal fillers makes this a reality. Instead of simply tightening the facial muscles to prevent and remove wrinkling, these fillers actually plump the skin, pushing the wrinkling out for full and younger-looking skin.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
There are several types and brands of fillers out there, so consulting with your doctor on what’s best for you is key. The FDA has released a list of approved dissolvable fillers, three of which are offered by Dr. Moein at Moein Surgical Arts. Because this is another temporary solution, the risks associated with these approved fillers will be rare and temporary. Some include adverse reactions such as swelling or bruising.
