With summer coming to an end, the tans will fade, but the memories will remain—alongside UV-induced hyperpigmentation and fine lines, that is. Time to get back to glowy with the big guns: laser skin resurfacing.
After a long and hot summer hitting the streets of A-town and diligently working on the perfect tan, everyone’s skin could use a little refresh. Summer days come with sun damage and dehydration, causing pigment irregularities and fine lines. Enter: laser skin resurfacing, known for rejuvenating skin, lightening hyperpigmentation (aka acne scars) and shedding the damage of beach days past.
Laser light interacts with the water inside skin cells, eliminating surface pigment irregularities, softening fine lines, and stimulating collagen and elastin production as the skin heals. Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery’s (beatymd.com) Erbium treatment takes a bespoke approach to resurfacing through targeting varied depths of the skin depending on the patient’s needs.
For those seeking a more comprehensive treatment, IPL, or intense pulsed light, uses a broad light spectrum rather than a single wavelength of light, allowing for deep penetration into the skin and revealing an even, glowing complexion.
