Many people seek sunshine to attain a nice summer tan, but too much sun can lead to unsightly sun damage on the skin. Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center uses advanced laser technology to help patients in Washington, DC, Vienna, VA, Woodbridge, VA, and Rockville, MD address sun damage and achieve clearer skin.
What is Sun Damage?
Although sunlight certainly has its benefits, excessive exposure can lead to accelerated aging and skin damage. Sun damage comes in a variety of forms, from freckles and moles to sun spots. At Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center, we use non-invasive laser techniques to eliminate sun damage and help patients achieve clear, healthy skin. With laser sun damage treatments, patients can reduce the appearance of the following:
- Brown spots
- Freckles and moles
- Wrinkles and lines
- Enlarged pores
How Much Does Sun Damage Treatment Cost in Washington, DC?
The cost of your sun damage treatment will vary depending on the size and number of the areas being treated, as well as the number of treatments necessary to deliver your desired results. During your consultation, we will evaluate your cosmetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this time, we will be able to provide the full cost of your treatment. We offer flexible financing options to ensure that each patient has access to the treatment that they need. We also accept cash, checks, and major credit cards for your convenience.
What is Sun Damage Treatment Like?
Each laser sun damage treatment is tailored to the unique skin care needs of the patient. We specialize in many different laser technologies to ensure safe and effective treatments for patients of all ages and skin types. During treatment, laser energy will be carefully administered to the desired treatment area. This process may cause a tingling or warming sensation, but this feeling fades within a few minutes and patients are able to relax for the duration of the treatment.
Is There Any Recovery Period After Sun Damage Treatment?
After sun damage treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling in the treatment area that can last for up to 10 days. During this time, it is essential to protect and moisturize the skin until it is fully healed. Patients are able to resume work and other activities after laser skin resurfacing, but we recommend limiting sun exposure as much as possible to prevent damage to the skin.
When Will I Notice Results from Sun Damage Treatment?
The results from sun damage treatment will become visible once the skin has fully recovered from treatment. You may also notice additional improvements over the months following treatment as collagen continues to restore the skin. We typically recommend a series of three to five treatments for optimal results.
