As sad as it is to say, the summer has come to an end. I thoroughly enjoyed all the beach days, frozen drinks, and festivals. But now we’re left with this damage from the sun. What in the world do we do about all the sun damage?! Luckily, here at Touch MedSpa we can teach you how to maintain corrective daily care with the help of laser treatments and products! Listen up, consistency is KEY!!!
What Laser Treatments Can Correct my Damage, and What Products Maintain Corrective Care?
IPL: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a non-invasive treatment that delivers high-intensity light into deep layers of the skin to improve various skin concerns. These are things such as fine lines and wrinkles, vascular lesions, redness, broken capillaries, discoloration, sun damage, and skin tone. Melanin (dark spots) is one of the primary targets of an IPL treatment, as well as hemoglobin (redness). The light energy is absorbed by the target areas and is converted to heat energy, which damages the blood vessels or breaks up the pigment. This is particularly effective at improving skin tone or sun damage!
- The recommended products to assist this treatment are: Phloretin CF, Discoloration Defense, Retexturing Activator, and Physical Fusion Sunscreen!
CO2/ CoolPeel: CO2 lasers offer resurfacing treatments that eliminates signs of aging like wrinkles, sunspots, uneven texture, and age spots for smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin. This treatment can improve fine lines to deep wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and redness, age spots, acne scars, sun damage, dullness/texture, dark under-eye circles, and lax skin. This is done by removing the top layers of damaged skin tissue and stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath.
- The products recommended for CO2 lasers are CE Ferulic, A.G.E. Interrupter, a custom DOSE, Biocellulose Restorative Masque, Epidermal Repair, and Physical Fusion Sunscreen.
Fractional: Fractional laser resurfacing is effective for deep lines and wrinkles, prominent scarring, pigmentation (age spots), and sun damaged skin. There is some downtime (i.e. a week) since this treatment is ablative. There is a chance of being swollen and scabby. However, since the epidermis and dermis are reached, there is a greater amount of collagen renewal in the weeks ahead.
- The recommended products after a fractional are: CE Ferulic, a custom DOSE, Retinol 0.03, and Physical Fusion Sunscreen.
RF Microneedling: Microneedling is a great treatment for anyone who suffers from acne scars, melasma, fine lines and wrinkles, or other textural problems with the skin. This treatment can give your skin a boost in plumping, minimizing scars, and providing an overall even tone. A grid of needles is used to penetrate the skin and delivers radio frequency energy in the dermis only, enabling smooth glowing skin!
- The recommended products for RF Microneedling are: CE Ferulic, Retinol 0.03, Triple Lipid, and Physical Fusion Sunscreen.
