You’ve had your fun in the sun, and now your skin is paying for it.
Those fabulous afternoons lounging poolside with a mojito in hand, and long weekends at the beach are part for the course when it comes to enjoying summer. Unfortunately, it can wreak havoc on your skin.
Regardless of the amount of sunscreen you apply to your skin or how often you sport that Riviera-style beach hat, the sun makes its way through to your precious skin – leaving sunspots, blotches, and wrinkles! But there’s no need to wallow in a world of regret. Your time spent sinning in the sun can be fixed!
Here are 4 Med Spa treatments to help you reverse sun damage:
Hold up! Did someone say needle? We did. But they are incy wincy, tiny little needles. We’re talking microscopic – as Taylor Swift says, “You need to calm down!”
Microneedling is a method used to rejuvenate the skin by generating collagen and skin tissue. The minimally invasive procedure involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to brush over the skin to create controlled “micro-injuries.” The skin’s natural healing process prompts the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild. The increased collagen can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and even out your skin tone – leaving you with smoother, younger-looking skin. Another bonus: it also lessens the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks, and sun damage.
Patients may experience a few days of redness following treatment, but ultimately settle into silky-soft skin that glows!
VI Peel: It’s time to turn over a new leaf! VI Peel is a medical-grade chemical peel that offers dramatic results with no preparation and minimal downtime. The gentle, pain-free treatment helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles, reverse sun damage, reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and scarring while improving the overall quality, tone and texture of your skin.
The VI Peel at Healthy Solutions MedSpa includes a specifically formulated post peel kit which is essential for your treatment’s success, ensuring optimal and lasting results. VI Peel’s blend of powerful ingredients is suitable for all skin types, including darker skin tones. It is a quick treatment designed to achieve more effective results.
Patients can expect to peel for 2-3 days before revealing a new layer of skin that appears flawless and youthful.
It’s not a Rave but seeing how amazing your skin looks over the next week may prompt you to break out in a celebratory dance. Before you do, keep in mind this is not an immediate treatment, and depending on how much sun damage you have, multiple treatments may be needed.
Some patients opt for a Photofacial instead of a chemical peel because there is less visible downtime and no peeling! After a Photofacial, your face will appear pink or red. If you have dark spots, they will appear darker- this can last for a few weeks but will lessen with each day. The Photofacial is also great to spot treat sun damage as the device can target specific sunspots more aggressively during treatment.
The Photofacial, also called an IPL (intense pulse light) is a 30-minute procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin…unce unce unce baby! This revolutionary facial treatment uses a broad-spectrum light source called flashlight technology. The intense pulsed light warms up the skin and uses heat to activate the body’s natural healing process.
You can use IPL on other parts of the body, not just on your face. Patients often get treatment to correct sun damage on areas such as chest, back, or hands. This type of light therapy is also used to treat age spots, broken blood vessels on your face, and rosacea.
When it comes to gorgeous skin, some of us…want it now! The Hydrafacial offers instantaneous results with absolutely no downtime. Hydrafacial is a hydradermabrasion treatment that cleanses the skin, exfoliates dead cells, extracts dirt and bacteria, hydrates, and protects the skin with antioxidants in one simple 30-minute treatment. As if it wasn’t already perfect, a Hydrafacial is an excellent microdermabrasion treatment for oily skin, acne, sun damage, and to treat wrinkles and fine lines.
Plus, by adding specific Boosters to the hydrafacial, you can effectively target problem areas. BRITENOL BOOST Britenol™ is specially formulated to correct dark spots and sun-damaged areas.
