3 Ways to Repair Your Skin After Summer
Fall is a great time of year to restore your skin and give it some much-needed TLC here at our medical spa. While summer is a wonderful time of year here in Albuquerque, giving us a chance to lie by the pool, explore the outdoors, and enjoy the long, warm nights, it can cause damage to our skin. A combination of chlorine, heat, and UV rays have likely done some harm over the past few months. Luckily, we’re here to help.
As summer comes to a close, now is a good time to start the repair process. To help get you started, I’ve come up with 3 easy, non-invasive ways to refresh your skin.
- 1. Fraxel® re:store DUAL: Looking to restore your skin’s softness and glow? Fraxel re:store uses laser technology to penetrate deep into your skin to remove old, damaged skin cells and stimulate your body to begin producing young, new ones. This FDA-approved treatment can be used on your face, neck, and hands and can leave you with gorgeous, glowing skin. More importantly, it is proven to treat sun spots and age spots acquired after spending prolonged time in the summer sun, so it’s perfect for fall rejuvenation!
- 2. Intense Pulsed Light ProLite II (IPL): The healing power of IPL can cover a wide array of symptoms. Whether you have a clinical skin problem such as rosacea or you’re simply frustrated with sun spots and scars, IPL can reduce those imperfections. Better yet, the treatment uses light rays to penetrate deep below the surface without irritating the top layer of your skin. That way, you can return to your normal activities right away.
- 3. Chemical Facial Peels: Peels are a great way to promote the growth of young cells in your skin. By removing the outer layers, known as the epidermis, skin becomes more permeable to nutrients and is encouraged to regenerate youthful cells. This regrowth is what makes skin appear softer, suppler, and smoother than before. Plus, this treatment tackles multiple issues, as it will not only reduce fine lines and scars, but also balance uneven pigmentation and sun spots.
As the nights grow shorter and the days grow cooler, give your skin the rejuvenation it craves. Explore our website to learn more about these treatments, or contact us to schedule an appointment and start feeling refreshed for fall!
