MOLES & BLEMISHES
Living in beautiful Southern California, it’s easy to be inspired by weather that encourages us to spend more time outdoors pursuing sports and other activities that we enjoy. A tremendous benefit of being more active is attaining a healthier lifestyle. We love running, walking, hiking, biking, and taking advantage of all the water sports. The list of activities seems limitless as they’ve become an integral part of daily life. The sunny skies even provides us with our daily dose of vitamin D.
All this fun in the sun comes with a price because the sun is responsible for releasing ultraviolet (UV) light. Each individual is different, but depending on the length of time spent outside could potentially damage your skin. We have all noticed sun damage results on the skin’s surface as wrinkles increase, dark spots emerge, and other problem areas crop up. You can unexpectedly add years to your appearance. UV exposure is the main reason behind 80% of your skin’s aging.
Luckily, experienced professionals at Prèmier Medical Aesthetics have the tools and knowledge to help diminish and even eliminate these sun damage signs. One such way is a technique called Intense Pulsed Light (often referred to as IPL). It has been proven to be a significant weapon in treating severely sun-damaged skin, resulting in hyperpigmentation, commonly known as age spots. Laser Therapy can deploy fractional laser resurfacing treatments to stimulate collagen production, resulting in smoother even-toned and texured skin. Still, other sun-damage treatments from our aestheticians involve chemical peels formulated to reduce uneven pigmentation, as well as microneedling that uses a derma roller with small needles to prick the skin into regenerating collagen and new skin tissue. Another treatment is PRP (platelet-rich plasma), a complement to microneedling, it’s injected into the various spots containing damaged tissue. PRP boosts the body’s cell growth, creating new skin and tissue. The end result is facial skin that appears fresh and new.
To be informed about which treatment would best suit your individual needs, it’s advised to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced medical professionals at Premier Medical Aesthetics.
