The Best Skin Rejuvenating Treatments for Healthier Post-Summer Skin
We know you love that natural summer glow from catching UV rays by the pool or on the beach, but the sun can cause premature aging, sun spots, wrinkles and dead skin. Restoring your skin after summer is essential to prepare your skin for the upcoming colder months. Below, our professionals at Faces Med Spa offer tips to rejuvenate your skin and share the best procedures following sun exposure.
What Effects Does The Sun Have on Your Skin?
Sunlight aids in the production of vitamin D, which is necessary for optimal bone development. However, UV radiation from the sun can cause serious skin damage. Melanin, the pigment that shields skin cells from the sun’s UV radiation, is found in the cells’ outer layer. UV radiation can burn the skin, ultimately causing the skin to lose suppleness and age prematurely.
Collagen and elastin are essential proteins in your skin: collagen provides strength to your skin, while elastin allows it to return to its natural state if stretched. Both of these proteins can break down rapidly with elevated levels of UV ray exposure. UV exposure can accelerate the breakdown of collagen, which causes premature aging. The UV radiation permeates the skin’s middle layer, leading to an unnatural accumulation of elastin. When elastin builds up, enzymes are generated that mistakenly tear down collagen, which causes premature aging. It is important to understand the effects of UV exposure on your skin’s proteins to better protect against premature aging.
Which Post-Summer Procedure is Right For Me?
With a wide array of treatments available, determining which treatment is right for your skin’s unique needs can be overwhelming. It is important to consult with a professional before deciding to undergo any form of treatment. Below, the professionals at Faces Med Spa outline common treatments and their benefits:
Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure in which the skin is physically exfoliated. This gentle skin resurfacing technique is used to improve the texture and overall appearance of the skin. It targets acne, acne scars, stretch marks, large pores, pigment irregularities, fine lines, wrinkles and premature aging. Benefits include improved skin elasticity and firmness, and an overall brighter complexion.
Vi Peel is a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients including trichloroacetic acid (TCA), Tretinoic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, Vitamin C and a mineral blend. VI Peel is suitable for all skin types and aids in the improvement of skin tone, texture and clarity and is specifically formulated to rejuvenate skin cells and help prevent any future damage. With the non-invasive procedure, you will see a reduction in age spots, acne, acne scars, freckles, hyper-pigmentation, soft lines and wrinkles.
Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL)
IPL is a gentle pulsating light technology that has a combined energy that effectively restores and rejuvenates the appearance of your skin. IPL targets any imperfections from sun damage, uneven skin tones such as brown or red spots, including rosacea, spider veins and age spots.
