Sun Damage Treatments
Over the years, researchers, clinicians, and cosmetic surgeons have developed a range of sun damage treatments, designed to reverse sun damage.
Chemical peels involve the application of acidic compounds to the face to encourage cell renewal. Dr. Tanzi and the team apply the peel to your skin and then allow it to do its work for a set time before removing it at the end of the treatment session.
The peel causes skin cells to activate their latent rejuvenation potential, forcing them to behave more youthfully, correcting the damage done by the sun to their DNA and other internal structures. Initially, your face looks red. However, over time, the inflammation subsides, the skin revitalizes, and looks fresher.
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we offer several laser treatments for sun damage. Two of our most popular are the Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser and Forever Young BBL™.
Halo™ uses a dual-wavelength laser that targets multiple layers of skin, improving on previous-generation lasers that only focused on specific cross-sections of the dermis.
Forever Young BBL™ uses broadband light to activate capillaries under the skin and stimulate collagen production, helping sun-damaged cells to rejuvenate.
Lastly, RF or radiofrequency microneedling is a sun damage-reversal therapy that combines regular microneedling with pulses of radio frequency to stimulate collagen growth. Dr. Tanzi applies the sophisticated treatment tip to deliver precise radiofrequency energy down the gold-tipped needles. Like the other treatments, this process activates your cells’ stress response machinery, priming them to reverse the damage done by ultraviolet light.
