Exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can result in premature aging and even skin cancer. Skin damage from the sun causes our skin to lose its elasticity, promotes the appearance of freckles, age spots, and uneven skin tone, and can even lead to the development of skin cancer. The best way to prevent skin damage caused by the sun is to cover up, stay in the shade, and wear sunscreen; however, once your skin has been damaged from the sun, Boulder Plastic Surgery can offer some helpful treatments and procedures that can reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and age spots.
Treatments to Reverse the Signs of Aging
Wrinkles and age make us look older than we actually are. Restore your skin to a healthier, youthful look with laser and resurfacing treatments at Boulder Plastic Surgery, designed to promote faster cell turnover to reveal newer, healthier skin cells and renewed collagen. See which one of these skin rejuvenating treatments is right for you:
- Photorejuvenation – We use a broad-band laser beam to promote cell turnover by heating up the outer layers of the skin. New skin cells are revealed and new collagen produced, so skin is firmer while dark marks are reduced.
- Micro Laser Peel – The Erbium laser is used to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin to minimize the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and discoloration caused by skin damage from the sun. This innovative treatment allows for deeper penetration of the layers of the skin for maximum results with minimal downtime.
- Non-Ablative Rejuvenation – This is a much milder and gradual treatment of fine lines and wrinkles that uses milder lasers to gently resurface the skin. About four treatments are required for optimal results.
- Topical Treatments – The effects of these skin treatments can be further enhanced with the use of topical creams designed to promote continued cell turnover and even skin tone. Retin-A is very effective at promoting skin renewal, while hydroquinone is a topical skin-bleaching cream that will help fade the look of discoloration caused by sun damage.
