Sun and Age Spots
At Last! Advanced Solutions
A common complaint among our Houston-area patients at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa is the appearance of sunspots or age spots that look like brown coffee stains on the skin. Melasma, which appears as brown patches on the skin’s surface, as well as solar lentigos, which are dark moles that appear primarily in areas that receive heavy sun exposure, respond well to a variety of treatments.
RF Skin Resurfacing
This gentle, yet effectively powerful treatment uses advanced radiofrequency technology to gently lift away the skin’s outermost layer, removing those freckles, moles, and surface spots with it. Venus Viva RF Skin Resurfacing also triggers collagen production, which provokes a gradual improvement of skin firmness over time as more collagen is produced in the weeks following treatment. This treatment may be used on the face as well as the neck, décolleté, the arm and hands.
The IPL Photofacial is recommended for people who have uneven skin pigmentation, freckles and sunspots, or other flaws or marks on the skin’s surface, such as acne scars and patches of discoloration. The IPL uses the precision of intense pulsating light beams to lift away the skin’s outermost layer, along with its freckles, marks, and other surface imperfections. Increased collagen production also provide gradual improvements that continue for weeks following treatment.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that gently exfoliates the skin’s surface using a very precise sanding instrument, triggering increased collagen production and exposing a healthy new layer of fresh skin cells. Microdermabrasion treatment improves the skin’s tone and evens out pigmentation for a smoother, cleaner appearance.
Chemical peels use natural plant-based chemical acids to peel away surface imperfections much like a sunburn peels away the surface layer of skin. Chemical peels produce temporary effects and must be repeated regularly in order to maintain results.
Microneedling works similarly to skin resurfacing, but instead of gently scraping off the surface layer of skin, microneedling gently punctures the skin with micro needles to stimulate collagen production and produce tighter and firmer skin with fewer surface irregularities. When enhanced with Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) therapy, this treatment helps to produce a more even skin tone and texture.
SPF Sun Protection
It is essential after any type of skin resurfacing treatment or chemical peel that you protect your skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays as effectively as possible. We provide for our patients a line of professional prescription-grade skin care products, including top of the line sun protection products to protect your skin from damage while undergoing treatment for sunspots and age spots.
