Lots of fun in the sun can unfortunately add up to skin blemishes such as dark spots, redness, uneven texture and even accelerated signs of aging like wrinkles and sagging. The good news is that there are now several advanced nonsurgical skin treatments that can combat signs of sun damage on your face.
Microneedling has become one of the most popular in-office skin treatments and is used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including signs of sun damage. It works by creating tiny microchannels within your skin, using a small needle-like device. This stimulates your skin’s natural healing process, encouraging collagen growth. The result is a fresh, rejuvenated complexion.
Though it might sound uncomfortable because it has the word “needle” in the procedure name, almost all patients report a high degree of comfort during and after treatment. Most people see the best microneedling results after a series of 2 to 3 treatment sessions.
2. NanoFractional Radiofrequency
NanoFractional Radiofrequency technology essentially combines microneedling with radiofrequency skin rejuvenation to offer enhanced results with little to no downtime. If you’re struggling with dark spots, redness or loose skin, this treatment could be an appropriate solution for you. The combination approach allows your treatment provider to address many skin concerns all at once.
3. Fractional CO2 Resurfacing
A popular laser skin treatment, Fractional CO2 Resurfacing can effectively treat hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles and uneven skin texture. Unlike the lasers of the past, today’s fractional lasers deliver maximum results with minimal downtime.
While your skin may appear red and feel tender for the first few days after your treatment, it should heal within 3 to 5 days, letting you get back to your normal routine more quickly and effortlessly.
4. Proper Skin Care
Use the proper treatment products such as retinols, antioxidant serums and daily sunscreen to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy. Sunscreen every day, even if it’s not particularly sunny or you don’t plan to go outdoors much, is essential for long-term skin health.
