Over time, skin tone can appear uneven and damaged, thanks to brown spots and discoloration caused by sun damage. Wrinkles and fine lines also caused by overexposure to the sun can have a negative effect on the skin, creating an older-looking, tired appearance. Fortunately, there are several ways to treat sun damage, many which do not require surgery.
Here, Dr. Sandra Margoles, a talented and trusted plastic surgeon in Greenwich, shares the top nonsurgical treatments her practice offers to treat sun damage and brighten skin.
Dermabrasion is effective in treating sun damage including fine lines and wrinkles, as well as facial scars caused by acne. The treatment removes damaged skin cells on the topmost layer of the skin by using a surgical tool to gently scrape the outer layers of the skin, revealing healthier, refreshed skin. Treatment is quick and virtually painless; patients see a noticeable improvement in their complexion almost instantly!
Laser skin resurfacing uses pulsating beams of laser light to vaporize old, damaged skin cells. The body then responds by producing new, healthy skin cells in its place for a smoother, refreshed complexion. Dr. Margoles uses the IPL Photofacial treatment, which requires less downtime than other laser treatments. The treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of brown spots, sunspots, broken blood vessels, redness and rosacea. Dr. Margoles also offers laser hair removal to remove dark, unsightly hair on the arms, underarms, chest, back, legs and bikini area.
A chemical peel is an exfoliative treatment used to improve the texture of the skin. Our chemical peel treatments use several types of chemical solutions including alpha hydroxyl and phenol to remove the dead top layer of skin and promote the growth of healthy, new skin cells. Treatment is quick and patients can enjoy a fresh glow with no downtime.
Dr. Margoles’ practice also offers skin care treatments to effectively treat dry, aging skin on the face and body. During your initial consultation, Dr. Margoles or a member of our trusted team will evaluate the quality of your skin to determine which treatment best suites your needs. Depending on your needs, our team may recommend a Retin-A or glycolic acid treatment to smooth out wrinkled, rough skin.
