Sun damage is one of the primary causes of enhanced premature aging of the skin. Sun damage can cause individuals to appear many years older than they actually are, due to loose, lined, and leathery skin. Sun damage also promotes various blemishes such as brown spots and discoloration alongside significant wrinkling.
Although it is recommended that you avoid direct sunlight as much as possible, or utilizing high SPF sunscreen, it is not always possible to prevent any damage from the sun. In many cases, people have already caused serious damage to their skin over time without even realizing it. Fortunately, aesthetic companies such as Blue Point Medical Spa, offer ways to dramatically reduce the detrimental effects of the sun with the use of innovative new therapies, such as the photo-facial.
Recognizing Sun Damage
Sun damage is what happens to the skin after the UV rays of the sun begin to alter its appearance and texture. Often it can be caused by frequent exposure to the sun without protection that can lead to harmful effects. There are several skin characteristics that can be used to spot sun damaged skin.
For example, sun spots, which are sometimes called age spots, are a classic sign of the skin condition. Other symptoms typically include signs that are related to aging, such as wrinkles, broken capillaries, fine lines, pigmentation problems, and leathery texture. Laser photo-facials with Blue Point Medical Spa are capable of gently, and effectively treating the many signs of sun damage that can lead to a prematurely aged appearance, promoting revitalized skin, with a smooth and rejuvenated result.
What is a photo-facial and what can it do?
A photo-facial, in simple terms, is basically light therapy that is used to treat, and improve the appearance of the skin. The rejuvenating treatment is delivered through the use of BBL (broadband light), which gently heats up the outermost layer of the client’s skin. An appropriate wavelength filter for the provided photo-thermal energy will be applied on the affected areas of your skin, allowing the energy to be absorbed and stimulate collagen production.
A Well Laid Out Plan
This therapy can be used to help boost and promote the natural development of collagen in areas of the face that have begun to sink and sag, providing a revitalized, and more youthful appearance. Blue Point Medical Spa can also use photo-facials to treat the appearance of sun damaged skin, by reducing the appearance of age spots, improving the texture of skin and helping to banish some of the wrinkles that can begin to gather as a result of sun exposure. Intense photo-facial rejuvenation uses the power of light to lessen signs of aging in the hands, chest, and face, and most treatments will include anywhere up to six sessions that last for approximately twenty minutes each.
Photo-facial treatments at Blue Point Medical Spa can effectively address:
Pigment discoloration caused by age and sun damage
Broken blood vessels
Rough, coarse and leathery skin (usually a result of sun damage)
Reduced collagen, skin tone, and elasticity
