We wouldn’t fault you for those long summer days at the beach, and we won’t even discuss the time you forgot to reapply sunblock. But as the summer days wind down, it’s time to reverse the consequence of your fun in the sun, and the most effective way to do so is with a series of skin resurfacing laser treatments.
With today’s advanced laser technology, you can eliminate brown spots, redness, and sun damage and enjoy smooth, beautiful skin with an even tone and texture. Consider the ICON Eraser Laser, which stimulates the body to produce new collagen as it improves the skin’s surface, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, decreases pore size, and diminishes the appearance of scars. By combining this amazing laser with microdermabrasion, which provides deep exfoliation thanks to medical-grade crystals that remove the outermost layers of the skin, and an IPL Photofacial, which specifically targets red and brown spots, total skin resurfacing is within reach.
The beauty comes from the ability of the ICON and IPL Lasers to penetrate the top layers of the skin and to target skin discoloration from below. The heat of the lasers thermally damages the lower layers of the skin, which stimulates collagen production. Your own natural healing processes kick in to slough off everything from spots to wrinkles, and a fresh skin surface takes the place of that weather-beaten look you achieved during summer.
Together, the ICON and IPL Lasers offer total skin resurfacing by improving both tone and texture. On its own, the IPL Laser tackles pigment issues of red and brown spots to generate new collagen and even the skin tone. Depending on the issues you would like to address and the condition of your skin, an individualized treatment plan can be created to provide the precise benefits you need.
In order to achieve maximum benefits from this effective and safe technology, a series of treatments should be performed about a month apart. Prior to and following treatment, you’ll need to stay out of the sun, so with shorter days and less beach time ahead, fall is the ideal time to begin a laser treatment plan. You’ll be done in time for the holidays and ready to face a new year with newly beautiful skin!
