Spending time outdoors and in the sun is something most of us all look forward to, base our hobbies around, and is part of our day-to-day wellness or fitness routines. As much as we may love it, there are risks involved and taking care of our skin becomes even more important the more time we spend outside. Sun damage can happen before you’re even aware of it, resulting in dark spots, fine lines, coarse texture and loss of elasticity and plumpness in the skin.
With leading-edge laser treatments and other advancements in medical aesthetics, we have perfected the treatments to repair sun-damaged skin. At Salameh Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, we offer state-of-the-art laser treatments for sun-damaged skin, all under the direction of double board-certified plastic surgeons and our expert medspa providers.
Tailoring Technology to Your Needs
Because the options for treating sun-damaged skin with lasers has grown exponentially in recent years, there are many options to choose from. Salameh Plastic Surgery & MedSpa tailors medical spa technology to your unique needs, serving you with extensive knowledge and personalized care.
Our range of non-surgical procedures includes the latest in medical aesthetic lasers and tech. With the support of our exceptional team, you’ll be guided to the solution that’s best for your skin, rendering optimal results.
Let’s talk about some of the alternatives we offer here to repair sun-damaged skin, starting with laser options.
Laser Treatments for Sun-Damaged Skin
The use of minimally invasive lasers to repair sun damage is primarily focused on the face, but sun damage affecting the upper body (decolletage, back, and arms) can also be addressed with laser treatments. Laser technology’s non-invasive nature results in reduced discomfort, faster healing and minimal recovery time.
To understand how lasers are chosen for treating sun-damaged skin, it’s helpful to know the difference between ablative and non-ablative lasers. Ablative lasers act on the top dermal layer, while non-ablative lasers focus on the deeper layers, heating them to encourage the production of collagen and other proteins in the skin.
Ablative lasers are used to address more serious sun damage, rendering dramatic skin resurfacing results. Non-ablative lasers show results gradually, as skin responds to treatment with more robust collagen development and pigment correction.
HALO deploys both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, achieving skin resurfacing and increased collagen production. This hybrid laser is an amazing tool and when combined with BBL (Broadband Light), it becomes one of the most effective laser treatments available for correcting sun damage.
HALO/BBL to Repair Sun-Damaged Skin
Broadband Light combined with the HALO laser brings sun-damaged skin a new, two-pronged approach to treating sun-damaged skin. While the HALO’s dual-laser action addresses superficial and deep-down damage, BBL further stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, multiplying HALO’s effects. Using IPl (Intense Pulsed Light), BBL simultaneously deploys visible broad-spectrum light and infrared light to focus on the signs of skin damage.
HALO/BBL is an advanced response to sun damage that evens skin tone, removes the damaged top layer and renews the skin by going deep to encourage natural proteins to flourish. Uneven skin tone and dark spots are eliminated. Your skin glows with rejuvenation.
BBL also has a distinct role in addressing sun damage. Especially useful for treating sun-damaged skin in the decolletage and arms, the BBL HERO (High Energy Rapid Output) renders amazing results for sun damaged skin on the upper body.
A 360-degree Approach for the Win
At Salameh Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, we encourage a 360-degree approach as the strategy most effective to repair sun-damaged skin. That means you play a leading role in your own healing journey during your post-treatment care plan.
While we all know how important water consumption is to the health of the skin, few of us actually drink enough water. Following laser treatments for sun-damaged skin, increasing water intake is vitally important. Your skin needs adequate water to look its best and to heal from the treatment you’ve had.
You’ll also need to keep an eye on your diet, choosing foods that feed and nurture your skin, adding to its rejuvenation.
Zinc is also a key dietary ingredient you need after having a laser treatment. Supporting your immune system, zinc is abundant in meat such as lamb, as well as spinach, mushrooms, and broccoli.
At Salameh Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, a major component of our 360-degree approach is Dr. Salameh’s line of medical-grade skin care that provides you with the support you need to continue the work accomplished by your laser treatment. We even feature a skin care advisor for your convenience.
