Depending on the extent of the sun damage you may need a few different types of treatments. Deep wrinkles from sun damage may need fillers while skin texture and color can be improved in a few ways. The options we have at Skin Specifics are as follows:
IPL Photo Facial
Will provide a quick improvement of both red and brown areas on the face, chest and hands.
Is an advanced peel containing a few types of acids and you will see visible skin peeling in a few days lasting up to one week. The number of peels one needs will be determined by the extent of the sun damage. Peels are a great option for most people who can afford some days of peeling.
We are big believers in prescription strength retinoids. The research on prescription strength retinoid and its long-term improvement of fine lines and skin texture is quite remarkable.
We would love to see you use retinoids at least a couple of times a week. Retinoids with skin lighteners is a great financially viable option for those who have patience and are in it for the long term to improve skin texture, fine lines and sun damage. At the consultation we will evaluate to see if you are indeed a candidate for use of retinoids, which is always contraindicated in pregnancy and breastfeeding. Additionally, you may have oversensitive skin that may not be suitable for Retinoids.
