Sun-Damaged Skin Spots - Face/Head
Treatment for sun-damaged skin spots at Olive Tree Med Spa may involve a combination of IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy, retinol, hydroquinone, and vitamin C customized products, as well as a series of Vi Peels.
IPL therapy uses short bursts of high-intensity light to target and break down hyperpigmentation, such as sun spots and age spots. This treatment can be performed on the face, neck, chest, and hands, and typically requires multiple sessions for optimal results.
Retinol is a form of vitamin A that can help improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin by stimulating collagen production and increasing cell turnover. It can be applied topically in the form of a cream or serum and is often used in conjunction with other treatments, such as IPL therapy.
Hydroquinone is a skin-lightening agent that can be used to improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation, including sun spots and age spots. It works by inhibiting the production of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. Hydroquinone is typically applied topically in the form of a cream or serum.
Vitamin C customized products can help improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin by providing antioxidant protection and promoting collagen production. These products may be applied topically in the form of a serum or cream, or they may be incorporated into a chemical peel or facial treatment.
Vi Peels are a series of chemical peels that can improve the tone, texture, and overall appearance of the skin. They may be used to address a variety of skin concerns, including sun damage, acne, and uneven skin tone. The treatment typically consists of several peels spaced a few weeks apart, and may be combined with other treatments, such as IPL therapy or microdermabrasion, for optimal results.
It’s important to note that individual results may vary and a personalized treatment plan will depend on the specific concerns and goals of the patient. It is recommended to consult with a qualified medical professional, such as a dermatologist or a trained medical aesthetician, to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your specific needs.
