Summer is winding down and fall is in the air! Yes, we love the sunny days spent outdoors, but honestly, our skin could use a break! Regardless of how much sunscreen you wear—and I surely hope you do every day—outdoor summer fun takes its toll. So, as the season shifts to cooler weather, now is the best time to give your tired skin some much needed R&R and a little bit of pampering for a fresh, healthy and more youthful appearance.
Two of our favorite skin treatments for reversing sun damage and the visible signs of premature aging like brown spots, irregular pigmentation, rosacea and Melasma patches are Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy and PicoSure Focus. Both are gentle, non-invasive anti-aging and pigmentation treatments that refresh and rejuvenate the luster, brightness and clarity of your skin while diminishing blemishes, discoloration and fine lines.
I also recommend treating sun damaged and weathered skin with specially formulated serums like Lytera 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum from Skinmedica or Discoloration Defense from SkinCeuticals. Both have proven to be effective at addressing areas of stubborn skin discoloration and restoring a more even skin tone, no matter the skin type.
If your skin is looking a bit tired and older than you’d like, I invite you to schedule a free consultation today. As a board-certified dermatologist, I can help you select the best treatment for you, so your skin will appear fresh and new in time for the holidays. They will be here before you know it!
