Most sun damage occurs while we casually go about our day. On particularly sunny days, ultraviolet radiation can affect us to an excessive degree. Frequent exposure to the sun can have the effect of reducing not only the texture but also the elasticity of our skin. If left unaddressed, these issues become even more pronounced due to aging and the natural loss of collagen over time. At Marlowe MD, we believe that everyone should be provided with the proper health and aesthetic services they deserve. When it comes to non-invasive skin treatments, we’re happy to offer our ICON skin rejuvenation laser.
How Does Sun Damage Occur?
Premature aging due to sun damage occurs when our skin becomes overexposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Frequent sun exposure over a long period of time hurts your skin’s natural ability to maintain its antioxidants, hyaluronic acid content, and vitamins. When these components are reduced, our skin tends to develop uneven pigmentation and brown spots. Though the appearance of these skin issues happens naturally over time, sun exposure has the effect of speeding up the process. To help you combat signs of sun damage, our specialists at Marlowe MD are happy to provide you with the ICON laser treatment.
Treatments With ICON
Our powerful ICON laser system is designed to tackle several skin issues at once. When it comes to sun damage, the ICON uses its dual-action laser wavelengths to provide rapid skin rejuvenation. Additionally, because of the ICON’s unique design, this laser is able to simultaneously treat signs of sun damage and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Sessions with the ICON don’t require any prior injections, preparations, or procedures. Results are achieved with minimal side effects and no downtime. Immediately after your treatment, you are free to return to your daily activities. When you visit Marlowe MD, we will take the time to discuss the ICON treatment with you and determine if laser treatment is a good choice for your specific skin needs.
Sun Damage Treatment Expectations
Treating sun damage with the ICON laser usually provides visible results after just one session. However, a series of 3-4 treatments may be required to achieve optimal skin improvement. Please note that you may notice some darkening of the treated skin after your visit. This is normal, and the outer layers of your skin will soon exfoliate to reveal a smoother, younger-looking complexion. After completing all of your required sessions, you will notice a dramatic improvement in the tone, texture, and appearance of the skin.
