Sun exposure and the aging process can cause wrinkles and skin discolorations. These imperfections can affect your appearance and even your confidence. If you are looking for wrinkle and sun damage removal in New York, we recommend the IRIDEX system. The treatment is composed of four stages and helps in removing the signs of aging as well as sun damage on your skin.
The first stage of the treatment involves the delivery of laser energy to age and sun spots with the use of high precision beams.
In this stage, adjustments are made to the high precision beam. Vascular targets are then treated including veins that are superficial as well as cherry angiomas.
General sun damage is treated during the third stage. This is done using the large spot and not the precision spot which is used in the earlier stages.
The laser’s wavelength is changed so that the deeper layers of the skin can be treated. The production of collagen is stimulated during the fourth stage.
What to Expect After Treatment
After the last stage, your skin may look flushed or swollen. The flushing and swelling typically go away after a couple of hours or a few days after treatment. Age and sun spots darken and eventually flake off. Facial veins disappear and the skin tightens as well. Remember that avoiding the sun is an important part of your post-treatment care.
