Now that we’re in the final weeks of summer, it’s time to start thinking about damage control for your complexion. Unless you’ve been living in a cave, your skin has incurred some level of sun damage. (Even walking to your car under the Texas sun is all it takes to get sun, so don’t be too hard on yourself!) The good news is that we have the tools to help reverse sun damage and aging and keep you in the glow all year long. If you play your cards right, you can enjoy the best complexion of your life at ANY age. All you need is to listen to the experts (that’s us!).
Our first expert tip for reviving sun-damage skin?
This non-invasive intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment literally blasts your skin with intense light, breaking up pigmentation issues like dark spots and freckles. Photofacials are also great for treating rosacea and redness, small veins, broken capillaries and dullness. After undergoing your initial series of three photofacials, you’ll notice brighter, more evenly toned skin. Best of all, your benefits will continue because photofacials also work behind the scenes to stimulate your skin’s natural healing response, triggering new collagen and elastin growth, the building blocks for strong, youthful skin! Translation: If you undergo routine photofacials over the long-term (seasonally, for example), your skin will be more supple, smoother and younger looking!
CO2 laser skin resurfacing is the gold-standard for smoothing away textural irregularities like fine lines, deep wrinkles, crepey skin, crow’s feet, smoker’s lines and much more. CO2 laser offers full-field ablation, which means it treats the entire surface of skin, not a fractionated amount. For dramatic improvements, CO2 laser is ideal, but you’ll need about a week of social downtime as your skin renews itself. If you’re looking for a lighter treatment, you might love PICO Genesis™, a laser skin resurfacing treatment that helps clear away pigmentation issues and improve texture with little to no downtime. Both skin treatments are exceptional, and we can help you choose the right one for your needs during your next visit.
Ideal for almost every skin tone and type, traditional chemical peels are another skin brightening staple to add to your beauty arsenal. While certain laser skin treatments are ideal for only lighter skin tones, chemical peels typically suit a full range of tones. Best of all, peels provide the same benefits as lasers, including diminished dark spots, smaller pores, brightened dullness, smoother texture, more youthful looking skin and so much more.
4. Medical-grade skin care!
Leaving your medical spa skin treatment without medical-grade skin care is like leaving your house in the morning without wearing clothes. OK, maybe it’s not THAT drastic, but if you’re going to invest in results-driven treatments for your skin, you’re going to want to get the best possible results, right? And you’re going to want your results to last a long time, right? The only way to do this is using medical-grade, results-driven skin care in tandem with your professional treatments. Our professional products, including ZO® Skin Health and Epionce®, are formulated with peak levels of active ingredients to reveal radiant skin that lasts. Period!
