How to Treat Sun Damage
Has the summer sun taken an unsightly toll on your skin? Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. David Sayah offers a range of treatment options to counteract the noticeable effects of sun damage on your skin. Here, he discusses some of the most popular skin treatments he offers.
Skin care specialists agree that incorporating facials into your skin care routine can help keep your skin clear and clean. Among Dr. Sayah’s most popular treatment is the Epiderme Signature Facial, a gentle treatment that removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores and protects the skin from free radicals that can harm the skin. Another popular treatment is the Beta-Glucan Antioxidant Facial, which combines beta-glucan and vitamins A, E and D to rejuvenate the skin and reduce wrinkles, lines and redness caused by sun damage. Dr. Sayah can customize your treatment to your unique skin type and condition.
A chemical peel is an exfoliative skin treatment that removes damaged outer skin layers in order to make way for healthier, younger skin. During treatment, one of our licensed estheticians will apply a chemical solution to the treatment area. The solution will remain on the skin for about 15 minutes and then be removed. The solution causes the top layer of skin to slough off, revealing fresh skin cells and a more radiant complexion. Chemical peels are often incorporated into facial treatments and are a great solution for fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, age spots and other pigmentation problems. Chemical peels can also be used on the arms, legs, back, neck, chest and hands.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to painlessly tighten sagging, aging skin. By delivering the energy below the skin’s surface, Ultherapy stimulates the creation of new collagen. Over time, the regeneration of collagen has a tightening, lifting effect on the skin. The youthful, rejuvenating results of Ultherapy can last up to one year. Ultherapy can be used to treat aging skin on both the face and neck.
This minimally invasive skin resurfacing treatment uses light-based energy to treat a range of skin conditions and boost collagen production to achieve a rejuvenated and radiant complexion. Photofacial treatments are ideal for individuals who wish to improve the appearance of dark sun spots or age spots, and those who desire a more even skin tone.
One of the most common effects of sun damage is an older-looking appearance. If wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes have surfaced on your skin due to years of sun damage (or the natural aging process), Botox can help. Botox is a cosmetic injectable that temporarily relaxes facial muscles, which in turn smooths out wrinkles and crow’s feet on the overlying skin. Results from Botox are temporary, so repeat treatments are recommended.
