While we can benefit from some sunlight, prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause various issues to your skin. Too much exposure can lead to a build-up of damaged skin cells, resulting in freckles, age spots, wrinkles, and other signs of premature aging caused by sun damage.
At Advanced Aesthetics, we offer transformative solutions for sun damage treatment in OKC. Treating sun damage can involve multiple treatments to achieve a natural, healthy, and more youthful appearance, so we provide personalized treatment plans catering to your needs.
What Treatment Is Offered For Sun Damage?
Advanced Aesthetics provides treatment plans designed to address your pain points and help you achieve your beauty goals. When it comes to sun damage treatments in OKC, we recommend three options: Fraxel, PhotoFacials, and Clear + Brilliant® Touch.
Fraxel is a non-invasive laser treatment suitable for those with deeper and more advanced skin concerns. Its micro-lasers stimulate collagen production without removing the outer layer of skin, causing old skin to peel off and make way for healthier skin cells.
PhotoFacials, or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, use bursts of light to treat deep-rooted issues, including sun damage, by targeting specific areas and stimulating collagen production and healthy skin cell growth.
Clear + Brilliant® Touch is a non-invasive laser procedure that rejuvenates the skin by improving its texture and appearance. It delivers a controlled laser energy that stimulates collagen production.
What Is the Treatment Time For Removing Sun Damage?
How long it takes to see younger-looking skin can depend on your treatment and the severity of your sun-damaged skin.
Fraxel treatments take around half an hour per session and can take up to five days before peeling occurs. It takes around two to four treatments spread across six to eight weeks to achieve desired results.
PhotoFacial treatments take about half an hour per session. Most patients need one to three treatments four weeks apart before reaching their desired results.
Clear + Brilliant® Touch treatments take half an hour and deliver results after one or two treatments, though patients may need up to six treatments to see the best results.
