Eradicate Facial Sun Damage With Laser Therapy

Photoaging — the name sounds like something that might make you red-carpet-ready. Unfortunately, photoaging accomplishes quite the opposite and refers to premature aging of your skin at the hands of the sun. And here in sunny Southern California, photoaging is a threat most days of the year.

At Naples Medical Care, our team of expert aestheticians, under the direction of Weiping Sarah Mei, MD, understands the impact the sun can have on your skin, which is why we offer a number of tools to keep your skin glowing with health and vitality year-round. 

After the long days of summer, your skin can use a little rejuvenation to undo some of the sun damage, and we have the perfect tool for the job — the Icon™ 1540 fractional laser.

Here’s a look at how this innovative laser technology can eradicate sun damage. 

Sun damage basics

The very reason that drives many of us to live in Southern California — plentiful sun — is a wolf in sheep’s clothing when it comes to your skin. The sun emits radiation in the form of ultraviolet rays that does several things to your skin:

And the more your skin is exposed, the more these problems can pile up, leaving your skin looking a little worse for wear after a long summer.

Skin rejuvenation with laser technology

To fight back against sun-damaged skin, we offer the industry-leading Icon 1540 fractional laser by Cynosure®. This technology allows us to tackle everything on the sun-damage list, rejuvenating your skin from the dermis up.

The Icon laser relies on intense pulsed therapy, which we deliver into your skin to break apart your skin issues below the surface, such as facial veins and sun spots. After we’ve targeted these skin concerns with laser energy, your body flushes out the debris naturally to make way for healthier skin growth.

The intense pulsed light penetrates your skin, without harming the surface area, through tiny microchannels. As your dermis absorbs the energy, it sets off a mild healing response in your tissue.

The first responders in this case are fibroblasts that synthesize collagen production. As your body calls in collagen, it begins to repair the microchannels we created with the Icon laser, developing a new support network that lifts and tightens your skin.

Many of our clients benefit from one Icon treatment after the summer months. The treatment itself lasts an hour or two, depending upon your sun damage, after which you’re free to return home. Over the course of the following week, your skin may begin to peel, revealing fresh, new skin underneath. And your results continue to get better as new collagen comes online and lifts your skin.

To ensure that your great summer memories are in your head, and not on your face, please give us a call at (562) 317-0823 to schedule an appointment. Or you can use our easy online scheduling tool
