Patients are often asked to avoid the sun after certain skin treatments, which can be more difficult during the spring and summer (especially in Miami). However, with proper planning (and adequate sun protection), the warmer months don’t mean you have to postpone the skin treatments you want now!
Microneedling (collagen induction therapy) offers many benefits for your skin, including solutions to age-related concerns and texture issues.
If you are experiencing any of the following skin conditions, consider a microneedling procedure:
- Wrinkles, fine lines, and creases
- Sun damage and dark spots
- Mild to moderate skin laxity (sagging)
- Large pores
- Acne and acne scars
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Stretch marks
- Unhealthy skin appearance overall
You can expect even better microneedling results thanks to recent improvements to this treatment.
- Microneedling with PRP: You can expect faster, more dramatic results by adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to your microneedling procedure.
- Lutronic Genius® RF microneedling: Delivering radiofrequency (RF) energy during microneedling offers better, longer-lasting results than microneedling alone.
- Morpheus8™: This innovative device maximizes microneedling and RF energy to reverse the signs of aging and provide a more youthful and radiant appearance to the face and body.
Microneedling options promote new collagen production for healthier, more radiant-looking skin.
Just remember that limiting sun exposure for a couple of months after treatment will help prevent your results from being negatively affected. Be sure to wear a broad-spectrum SPF every day. Also, consider investing in some fashionable hats to protect your face from the sun’s harmful rays.
Microneedling clients should also abstain from smoking and taking aspirin, NSAIDs, and any medicines or supplements before and after treatment.
- Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is an excellent choice to treat the following:
- Fine lines
- Surface blemishes
- Poor texture
- Sun damage
- Pigmentation issues.
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is commonly used in moderate to deep peels and can treat these skin concerns on the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms. This treatment takes about thirty minutes and typically requires intravenous sedation.
You can expect a week or so of downtime. During this time, your skin must be kept moist with Vaseline or A&D Ointment as it goes through a period of peeling and healing. Use sunscreen once the skin is healed, as the treatment areas will be hypersensitive to the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
You will see results (reduced wrinkles and blemishes, a more even skin tone, and increased radiance) within 10 days to two weeks.
