Did you know that tanned skin is damaged skin? These last three months of soaking up the summer sun may have given you a healthy-looking glow, but a closer inspection would reveal otherwise. Consistent sun exposure causes freckles, sun spots, skin discoloration, uneven texture, and can even lead to skin cancer. While you can exfoliate to help undo a minor extent of the damage, only more concentrated treatments like those Dr. Gerstman offers can fully revamp your skin to give you a “glow” that is truly beautiful and healthy.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), also called FotoFacial™, is one of the best means of achieving overall skin health and beauty. Not only does it treat brown spots or “age spots” caused by sun damage, it also treats broken capillaries, spider veins, rosacea, and fine lines and wrinkles. IPL works by using gentle bursts of high-intensity light to penetrate the deeper layers of the dermis. This light damages the pigment that causes age spots or the vessels that cause broken capillaries. As the skin heals, it naturally produces new, healthy skin cells as well as collagen and elastin to erase fine lines and wrinkles. The best candidates have lighter skin, as those with darker skin are at higher risk for hyper-pigmentation.
Patients should expect to feel slight discomfort during treatment, which can be lessened with a cooling gel. The amount of discomfort varies among patients, but most liken the sensation to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Usually, more than one treatment is necessary to get the best results.
The change in season is the perfect time to renew the quality of your skin. If you are interested in any of Dr. Gerstman’s treatment to reverse sun damage, please schedule a consultation by calling (212) 966-3991 or fill out our online contact form today.
