Summer Recovery: Best Treatments for Pigmented Skin Albuquerque, NM
As you recuperate from summer getaways and long days lounging by the pool, it’s not uncommon to see a few unwanted spots appear on your skin. Even when you do your best to be diligent about sun protection, sun damage can still find its way to activate the pigment cells in your skin and leave a few sunspots here and there. Fortunately, it’s completely possible to fade away areas of pigmentation — all you need are the right treatments and products.
At AlluraDerm MD Med Spa, treating pigmented skin is a breeze with advanced skin rejuvenation services and clinically proven skin care formulas:
As the first non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing treatment, the Fraxel laser can target sun damage by penetrating deep into the skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing process and replace old, damaged cells with glowing, healthy skin. Fraxel works not only on the face, but also on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands to diminish the appearance of uneven pigmentation, including age spots, sunspots and other areas of discoloration.
Clear + Brilliant®
A gentler approach to laser skin resurfacing, you may be well suited for Clear + Brilliant, also known as a “mini Fraxel.” Clear + Brilliant uses the same non-ablative fractional laser technology to gently resurface the skin by creating tiny micro-injuries, in turn boosting collagen production. With less downtime than Fraxel, Clear + Brilliant can target uneven pigmentation and improve overall tone and radiance while maintaining a youthful glow.
Since IPL is not a laser, but rather an intense pulse of light, photofacials can erase pigmentation concerns without disrupting the skin’s surface or requiring downtime. Here’s how it works: IPL’s high energy light is absorbed by areas of pigmentation in your skin, such as melanin in sunspots, and breaks the pigment down so that it’s absorbed by the body. Along with the face, photofacials are great for treating larger areas such as the hands, neck, shoulders and back.
As one of the most effective forms of non-ablative treatment for correcting common skin concerns, microdermabrasion provides exfoliation to remove the outermost layer of dead skin and replace it with healthy, vibrant cells. Microdermabrasion is a soothing way to reduce dark spots and sunspots while leaving you with flawlessly smooth skin.
Another way to exfoliate past damage is by peeling it away with a medical-grade chemical solution. Chemical peels work perfectly after microdermabrasion to achieve maximum benefits, reducing uneven pigmentation and giving the skin a softer, more supple appearance. The Vitalize Peel® by SkinMedica® in particular has been clinically proven to help fight the effects of sun damage and aging with little to no downtime.
