Exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun can cause serious damage to your skin. Premature aging of the skin, dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles are all common symptoms of sun damage.
Dallas dermatologist, Dr. George Wooming, offers patients a variety of treatment options for sun damage, aging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles using the xeo® laser by Cutera. These options include:
Pearl Fractional Treatment — Fractional therapy exposes only a fraction of the skin to the laser beam in a pattern of tiny tots. Pearl Fractional Treatment is ideal for the treatment of sun-damaged skin. The fractional laser pulses place tiny holes in the skin, selectively removing columns of damaged tissue, while leaving surrounding skin intact. After a treatment, the skin regenerates collagen, improving the appearance of aging or sun-damaged skin as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Most patients see significant improvement in just one treatment.
LimeLight™ Facial — A non-invasive skin revitalization procedure to improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. LimeLight allows the practitioner to customize the facial to skin type and selectively treat damaged areas of the skin. Most patients see noticeable improvement with one to three treatments, however, additional treatments may be recommended for excessively sun-damaged skin.
Laser Genesis Skin Therapy — A non-invasive laser treatment to safely, naturally, and effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure — which can be performed over the entire face and neck — produces new collagen in the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. On average, patients require four to six treatments to achieve optimal results, though every patient’s needs vary.
Though there are treatments to improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, the best treatment is prevention. Exposure to the sun’s UV light can also lead to skin cancer. Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimize skin exposure and prevent skin cancer from sun damage and the appearance of new spots, wrinkles, and redness.
