We love spending time in the warm summer sun, but does our skin love it as well? Not so much. Enjoying the summer months isn’t a bad thing as long as you apply sunscreen and wear protective clothing to guard your skin. It’s likely your skin has been through a lot this summer and may be starting to show signs of damage, especially if you haven’t been diligent about protecting it. From hyperpigmentation to lines and wrinkles, it’s time to transition into fall with a treatment to address the damage that summer’s left behind.
Here are four skin treatments the skincare experts at Faces PLLC in Jackson, MS recommend to get your skin back into shape.
The HydraFacial is a non-invasive skincare treatment that is excellent for giving your skin the love it desperately needs after a summer in the sun. This four-part treatment will leave your skin feeling clean, fresh, soft, and renewed.
A Hydrafacial addresses these skin concerns:
- Whiteheads, blackheads, and debris within the pores
- Dull skin due to accumulation of dead skin cells
- The appear of fine lines
- Discoloration in the outermost layers of the skin
2. Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are a safe and effective method of removing dead skin cells, dirt, debris, and oil from clogged and enlarged pores to reveal healthier, more youthful skin. When applied to the surface of the skin, the chemical exfoliant can penetrate the skin at varying levels of depth, targeting damage caused by age, sun, lifestyle, and other elements. At Faces, we offer various chemical peels, ranging in strength from superficial to deep, depending on your skin’s specific concerns.
Chemical peels can help improve the appearance of:
- Superficial fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone
- Texture irregularities
3. PiXel8- RF Microneedling
PiXel8-RF is an advanced version of microneedling with the added benefit of skin tightening. It tightens the skin using bipolar energy that radiates heat into the layers of the epidermis where skin damage begins, such as wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and scarring. In addition to heat, it also creates micro-channels that boost the body’s collagen production by causing hemostasis and coagulation, which stimulates the revitalization of cells.
PiXel8-RF Skin tightening can help improve the appearance of:
- Loose, sagging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin tone
4. Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)
You can rediscover your love for your skin with an IPL treatment. Classified under the large umbrella of laser skin treatments, intense pulsed light (IPL) is a type of light therapy, sometimes referred to as photo rejuvenation. This versatile treatment can be used to treat nearly any part of the body, but it is most commonly used to target damage and discoloration on the face, neck, and chest.
IPL technology can be used to treat:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Broken blood vessels
- Some types of acne
