Years of sun exposure can damage the skin, especially in sensitive regions like the face and neck. Skin damage leaves the skin looking dry and aged. Sun exposure can create deep wrinkles and unsightly brown spots. Annapolis, MD cosmetic surgeon Dr. Henry Sandel offers laser treatments for the reversal of sun damage.
The Innovation of Laser Therapy
Laser skin treatments have changed the way plastic surgeons treat sun spots. Laser therapy can drastically improve the texture and look of the skin while minimizing the visibility of dark spots and reducing the appearance of fine lines. Laser treatments allow for shorter to no downtimes and reduce the risk of scarring and pigmentation changes generally associated with traditional chemical peels.
Sun Damage Laser Treatment Options
- Sciton BBL: This noninvasive treatment is highly effective for treating aging and sun damaged skin. Dr. Sandel can control the intensity of each treatment targeting key areas of the skin for optimal results. Sciton BBL requires little to no downtime post-treatment.
- CO2 Laser Peel: Lumenis CO2 laser resurfacing offers smoother, healthier and more vibrant facial skin. The laser is used to improve texture and even the pigment of the skin while smoothing fine wrinkles. This laser can be customized to suit your skin type and is most commonly a one-time treatment.
- Fractional CO2 Laser: Fractional CO2 lasers can drastically improve the appearance of deep wrinkles, skin tone, and scars. Fractional lasers help improve natural skin laxity for a refreshed more youthful appearance. This laser treatment can be tailored to your skin type and targets your cosmetic concerns. One treatment is all that is required and downtime is generally about 7 days.
