Facial Rejuvenation: How to Address the Effects of Summer Sun & Aging on Your Skin

Summers are hard on the skin. Especially in Texas. The need for facial rejuvenation due to sun-damaged skin is an all-too-common complaint of many of our patients. And as if the sun wasn’t enough, there’s also the natural aging process, which you can’t escape whether you live in Texas or Timbuktu. You can, however, take a stand against damaged or aging skin with our targeted skin-rejuvenation treatments. It is called Facial Rejuvenation. Let’s take a look.

Fraxel

You may have heard the name Fraxel. It’s a system of laser skin treatments that consistently produces amazing results for patients. The specific treatments, called Fraxel Dual, Fraxel Re:Pair and Fraxel Re:Store, all have slightly different mechanisms of operation, but they all bring welcomed results.

Fraxel Dual uses two laser wavelengths to restore more youthful-looking skin for individuals with age spots, sun spots, melasma, keratosis, acne scars, surgical scars and periorbital wrinkles. Between four and six treatments are generally required with very minimal downtime for patients after the procedure.

You can expect skin that’s fresh, vibrant and more youthful in appearance with better skin texture and tone.

Fraxel Re:Store is an advanced laser treatment for stretch marks, pigmentation issues, moderate wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, surgical scars and more. Recovery time is brief, after which the skin continues to show improvements for several months.

Fraxel Re:Pair is a more aggressive procedure and is used to treat the most severe signs of skin damage. The unique laser technology employed with Fraxel Re:Pair brings results in one or two treatments. It’s an excellent approach to smooth out deep frown lines and wrinkles and for various types of sun damage.

Clear + Brilliant

Another laser skin rejuvenation treatment we offer that’s very popular with our patients is Clear + Brilliant. The name really says it all. This therapy fights the effects of aging and restores skin to a previously smooth texture and brilliant appearance.

With Clear + Brilliant you enjoy skin with greater illumination, skin that’s soft and smooth, enhanced skin tone and a reduced appearance of pores. It’s safe for all skin types and is comfortable, fast and affordable.
