Let’s face it, Southern California’s beautiful weather year round makes radiant, glowing skin essential at all times. However, many individuals are more conscientious about the health and beauty of their skin as summer approaches, and for good reason. The uptick in barbecues, beach days and summer soirees means your skin will be on full display for all to see. If you’re self-conscious about a dry, dull complexion or other skin imperfections, Dr. George Sanders encourages you to consider a non-surgical skin treatment with him. In this blog post, he discusses the best treatments he offers for great summer skin.
Exfoliating is an important part of keeping your skin fresh and healthy. Chemical peels are a popular in-office exfoliating treatment that sloughs off dead and damaged skin cells to make way for younger and healthier-looking skin. Using a customized blend of chemical agents, chemical peels can be used to treat a variety of skin imperfections, including wrinkles, fine lines, enlarged pores, sun damage, age spots and certain scars. In addition to the face, chemical peels can be used to improve the appearance of skin on the neck, chest, hands, arms and legs. Our team adjusts the strength of the chemical peel to achieve each patient’s desired results.
Laser Skin Resurfacing and Rejuvenation
For more comprehensive rejuvenation, Dr. Sanders offers a variety of laser treatments. The Sciton Erbium laser is a gentle yet powerful skin resurfacing treatment that uses laser light to target the superficial layers of the skin and reveal younger and healthier layers. Dr. Sanders may recommend skin resurfacing with the Erbium laser if you have moderate lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, acne scars and brown spots.
The Fraxel laser is a popular skin rejuvenation treatment that uses precisely calibrated laser energy to eliminate damaged skin cells on the target area and trigger the skin’s natural healing process and production of new skin cells. Following treatment, skin is smoother and more luminous. Skin rejuvenation with the Fraxel laser is ideal for treating wrinkles, brown spots and acne scars. Safe for all skin types and tones, Fraxel laser skin rejuvenation is customized to meet each individual patient’s unique skin needs.
