As summer has officially come to a close and fall season is in full effect, it is important that we take notice of the time we have spent soaking in the sun. Realistically, who hasn't had their fun in the sun? At one point this summer or over your years, we have indulged in vacations, pool parties, and just plain living. All this time spent being exposed to the ultraviolet rays takes a toll on the skin in the way of spots and redness.

Sun damage is a real issue for many of us. It is simply not only a "summer," worry, as the sun is shining 365 days a year. If we have learned anything (and we have) in the last 17 years, is that everyone has accumulated some sun damage. At Enlighten MD, it is heavily encouraged that all of our patients begin with a comprehensive consultation to guide them in the right direction.

A popular treatment option for sun damage is a photofacial. Once that is determined to be the right treatment, we can then begin to remove years of damage. Not all spots are created equally so in some cases you might require other treatments (chemical peels, Fraxel, etc.)

Think of a photofacial as an eraser that gives you a chance to achieve that creamy complexion on your face that you used to have. Make sure that you also treat your neck and decollete as these areas are all one palate. To maintain your results use proper skincare including a daily SPF. Every few years you can have another IPL treatment to keep your skin beautiful and spot-free.

Regardless of "how bad" the damage is, Enlighten MD can always make improvements. Based out of Dallas, we are here to get long-lasting results that keep the city a beautiful place, inside and out!
