Sun Damage

Sun damage, which may have occurred at childhood or recently, can leave your skin looking thin, with varying pigmentation, including brown or red spots. The harsh UV damage can take up to ten years to take its toll. Some spots, if left untreated, may even become dangerous. Be safe and schedule a full-body checkup annually, so any suspicious spots can be examined and removed. For non-cancerous spots, we offer different treatments to dramatically improve your skin with long-lasting results.

Treatment Options

The Sciton Halo™ Pro Laser is a hybrid fractional laser that’s exceptional at treating multiple skin issues, including laxity, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and more.  The Halo™ Pro Laser combines non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to simultaneously tighten and tone skin while treating surface complexion issues.

Sciton Brandband Light (BBL™) technology is the world’s most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment. It’s an excellent procedure for patients who suffer from sun damage, wrinkles, acne, and common aging symptoms. With Sciton BBL™ treatments, your complexion will be transformed and refreshed.

A superficial chemical peel treatment helps exfoliate and accelerate the removal of dead skin cells. They have been shown to prevent the breakdown of collagen and stimulate the process of natural skin renewal. Unlike the deeper phenol of a TCA peel, the depth of penetration is kept to the epidermal or superficial dermis, eliminating the crusting or peeling that may happen with deeper peels.

The Sciton Contour TRL™ Laser is a multi-functional laser resurfacing technology that can be adjusted to deliver multiple treatments types. Contour TRL™ Laser treatment can be adjusted to deliver a shallow facial peel or a deeper resurfacing, depending on the patient’s desired goals and preferences.

Vivace is an FDA-approved device that combines the power of radiofrequency energy with the benefits of microneedling to produce gorgeous and glowing skin.

The best candidates for Vivace RF Microneedling may have mild-to-moderate signs of aging, and want to see younger, more even-looking skin.
