Banish Summer Sun Damage With a Facial Laser Resurfacing Treatment

Summer on the beaches of South Carolina is a blast — with plenty of sun, sand, and surf to enjoy during the hottest months of the season. While you’re happy that the memories you made with family and friends will last forever, the same can’t be said for the summer sun damage to your delicate facial skin. If you’re coming off the summer season with a few more lines, wrinkles, and dark spots than you started with, it’s time to consider banishing skin damage with a facial laser resurfacing treatment. 

Here at Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center, in Florence, South Carolina, under the medical direction of Dr. Edward O’Dell, and unparallelled laser expertise of practice co-founder, Mary Daniels, a highly regarded medical aesthetician, we can help your skin recover from summer’s damaging effects. Discover the many benefits of laser skin resurfacing and get your youthful, healthy glow back. 

How the sun damages your skin

To understand why you have sun-damaged skin in the first place, let’s review how the sun impacts your skin over the years. The sun has a cumulative effect, so if this wasn’t your first summer at the beach, or lounging by the pool, then sunlight has been at work on your skin for as many decades as you’ve been enjoying its benefits. It’s true that you need the sun for vitamin D, but too much exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays leads to skin damage.

A sunburn is the first warning sign that your skin’s health is in jeopardy. Over the years, with each sunburn, or prolonged sun exposure — even if you get a tan — UV rays make your skin less elastic, wrinkled, and thinner. Research shows that the more time you spend in the sun, the earlier your skin ages. 

As you get older, it becomes harder for your skin to repair itself from sun damage, and you end up with more lines and wrinkles than you care to see when you look in the mirror each day. Fortunately, fractional laser technology can help repair this damage from the inside out. 

Fraxel laser resurfacing for total skin rejuvenation

In South Carolina, we are truly the experts in Fraxel® laser skin resurfacing, as our medical aesthetician, Mary Daniels, has more experience than any other provider in the state. Fraxel technology is an FDA-approved treatment that uses advanced fractional laser technology to rejuvenate and restore your skin. Fraxel lasers improve the tone and texture of sun-damaged skin using different wavelengths of laser energy. 

During treatment, the laser energy penetrates deep beneath the surface of your skin to ignite new collagen production. The surrounding tissue remains unharmed, as the laser’s fractional energy treats just a small area of tissue at a time. As a result, your skin rapidly heals from the inside out as fresh new skin cells replace dull, sun-damaged tissue, for total skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. 

Sun spots, wrinkles, and fine lines fade away

Fraxel laser treatments address all your summer sun damage, and then some, including:

Overall, after Fraxel facial laser resurfacing treatments, you’ll enjoy a more radiant complexion, and healthier, glowing skin. All these benefits come with minimal discomfort and downtime, too, and the results are long-lasting. While you might benefit from a series of treatments, for many women and men, Fraxel laser skin resurfacing can give you a younger-looking appearance in a single treatment. 

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to reclaim your youthful complexion with the ease of fractional laser resurfacing treatments. With this advanced technology, you help can reverse the sun’s damage to your delicate facial skin.
