Sun Spot Prevention Franklin

While much has been made of procedures to treat brown spots, it’s always best not to have brown spots to treat in the first place. Franklin Skin & Laser certainly has a menu of treatments for spots caused by harmful UV rays from tanning beds and sunlight; however, there are more products than ever before to prevent sun spots from forming.

These products also help you maintain the fabulous results from treatments such as photorejuvenation and chemical peels designed to correct the signs of aging and environmental stresses including sun spots.

Photorejuvenation

Light from lasers may be used to treat the conditions caused by light from the sun or tanning beds. Dr. Steven Bengelsdorf or one of Franklin Skin & Laser’s licensed medical estheticians (under the doctor’s supervision) will deliver controlled light to treatment areas via a handheld device. Specific wavelengths precisely and safely target age or liver spots, blood vessels, and other signs of sun damage.

The excess pigmentation in brown patches or spots is broken up to reveal a more even-toned complexion. Due to the nature of this technology, fundamental changes to the underlying skin may reveal a healthier complexion at the surface as the light also helps to rebuild collagen, a protein whose stores naturally diminish as you get older. Your spots may be gone in two to three treatments and with very little (if any) downtime.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are among the most versatile of procedures available at Franklin Skin & Laser, the solution applied to correct sun spots may be customized. The strength of the peel is tailored to the patient’s skin type and color, as well as to the amount of excess pigmentation or melanin present and responsible for those dark patches. After the solution is applied, a restorative process begins. The controlled damage caused by the peeling agent removes dead, damaged skin cells to reveal new, healthier, spot-free skin.

Products that work

Some patients would rather avoid therapies altogether. Instead of a peel or laser treatment, these individuals may opt to use one of SkinMedica’s products, the Lytera Skin Brightening Complex. Like other topical medications, Lytera is applied two times a day. Almost 80 percent of patients reportedly saw improvements in tone within 12 weeks, and 95 percent of those treated experienced better skin condition after 3 months.

Products that prevent

Franklin Skin & Laser recommends a broad-spectrum UVA-UVB sunscreen of at least SPF 30 be applied every two hours or more frequently if you are in the water or sweating a lot. It is more convenient and comfortable than ever before to keep up with this healthy habit that also goes a long ways to prevent skin cancers.

Franklin Skin & Laser sells sunscreens that are light and airy. They don’t leave behind a thick, white residue and some may even be tinted to match your complexion. Dr. Bengelsdorf and his team even have light and easy-to-use SPF products that double as a primer and Sunforgettable, which is a powder sunscreen by Colorescience Mineral Makeup. Preventing unsightly spots and the health of your skin is as easy as brushing on SPF 50 (or 30) and being on your way!
