If your skin is feeling dull and lifeless after a long dry winter, a laser or light treatment could give you back your glow. At SkinSmart Dermatology®, our skilled providers use these noninvasive derm treatments to minimize sun spots, uneven pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, redness, and more. If you’re ready to rejuvenate your skin this spring, one of these options could be right for you.
1. IPL Photofacial
Intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacials are one of the most popular dermatology light treatments. The noninvasive service has no downtime (though you might have sunburn-like pinkness for a few days) and typically takes only 15 to 20 minutes to treat the face.
The IPL light wavelength targets pigment in sun spots, freckles, rosacea redness, and broken capillaries in quick pulses. Your body then clears this pigment to give you a more even skin tone. IPL also stimulates collagen production for smoother, firmer, and brighter skin.
2. Vbeam® Laser
Harsh winter weather is often a trigger for rosacea and broken capillaries, but the Vbeam laser, which targets red pigment, can minimize or resolve these issues. Laser derm therapy with Vbeam can also reduce stretch marks and port wine stains.
Vbeam generally requires fewer treatments than IPL for rosacea, but IPL better targets brown spots and sun damage. Our providers can recommend the best treatment for your skin concerns, or we may suggest alternating laser and light therapies.
3. SmartXide DOT® Fractional Resurfacing
If skin laxity, uneven texture, acne scars, or fine lines and wrinkles are your biggest concern, a SmartXide DOT fractional resurfacing treatment could be the perfect way to kick off spring. Unlike traditional ablative laser resurfacing, which removes the outer layer of your skin, the SmartXide DOT therapy creates microscopic punctures that allow the laser to penetrate deep into the dermis. This enables your skin to heal more quickly and reduces downtime.
