Achieving and maintaining beautiful glowing skin isn’t as tricky as some beauty product companies would like you to think. It isn’t necessary to buy 50 different products and follow a complex 10-step process each morning and night to enjoy clear, healthy skin.
The absolute best thing you can do to keep your skin healthy and beautiful is to protect it from the sun. The ultraviolet rays that the sun gives off cause permanent damage to the structure of the skin’s cells. This type of cell damage causes premature aging of the skin. In addition, it can leave the skin dry, looking dull, and lacking that healthy glow.
Sun protection is essential in Florida, where we spend so much time outdoors enjoying the warm weather. You should always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen, which will protect your skin from both UV-A and UV-B rays. A critical part of the face people often neglect is the lips. Wearing lip balm with SPF can keep your lips from looking dried and withered. When you spend a long time outdoors, be sure to re-apply your sunscreen every two of hours, even in cloudy weather.
Treating Past Sun Damage
We all love to spend time in the great outdoors, and our team understands that you may not have always been as diligent about sun protection in the past. If you have sun damage due to your previous sun exposure, we can take steps to repair the sun damage and help you towards more radiant skin.
Frequently, sun damage is apparent in the form of sunspots, fine lines and wrinkles, and other discolorations on the surface of the skin. We offer a wide range of procedures to minimize these problems while rejuvenating and pampering the skin.
Hydrafacial – A hydrafacial is a great way to rejuvenate dull skin. A monthly hydrafacial or even can help you maintain that youthful, healthy glow.
Micro-needling – This is an excellent treatment for acne scars and sunspots. This procedure uses tiny needles to puncture the skin’s surface, breaking up sunspots and acne scars, reducing their appearance. Microneedling also stimulates collagen production in the treated areas, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Laser Treatments – Several types of laser treatments are effective when dealing with sun damage. The type of laser used is determined by the kind of sun damage you are experiencing. For example, some lasers are better at treating dark spots, while others are better at treating fine lines and wrinkles, redness, rosacea, or capillary damage.
