Goodbye Sun Spots
It is the perfect time to take advantage of our great promotion to treat your sun spots now with either of these treatments, while the days are still cloudy and cool!
Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates through the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally dilated vessels or pigmentation. The heat impairs the vessel or lesion, or breaks down pigmentation, and the body begins its natural healing process while tightening, removing brown discoloration, spider veins, redness and improving skin texture
What is the difference between tone and texture? Skin tone is the evenness of the skin color – sun spots, blotches, redness, etc.; while skin texture is the condition of the surface of the skin – smoothness, pore size, fine lines, etc. IPL works best to improve skin tone, additional treatment such as microneedling can be applied to even greater improve skin texture. IPL requires no downtime and you can return to work the same day!
Most patients see a significant improvement after just one treatment but see additional benefits in multiple sessions. Follow up treatments may be required to maintain results.
Fractional CO2 is a popular laser treatment for the skin that has been shown to dramatically diminish wrinkles and improve sun damage with minimal downtime. The fractional CO2 laser energy heats and vaporizes layers of the skin to remove brown spots and sun damage while it heats the dermis tostimulate new collagen and elastin to reduce lines and wrinkles. This very popular treatment at FAC can be performed in conjunction with the TCA acid peel or photo facial for accentuated results.
Before the Fractional C02 treatment, a numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to minimize discomfort. Oral sedation is also available at the patient’s request. The skin will feel very warm during the treatment with a mild sunburn sensation lasting for about 2 – 4 hours directly after treatment. Over the next few days there will be some inflammation, the skin will bronze and start to flake within 3 days. Post treatment products are given to ensure comfort and rapid healing. Most patients heal fully within 7-10 days.
Along with your treatment, we provide a complimentary facial with our medical esthetician to ensure proper post treatment rejuvenated skin.
