Staying out in the sun feels great, but it’s not so great for your skin. One of the most effective treatments to fight sun damage is laser treatment. The board-certified dermatologists at Feinstein Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Boynton Beach, FL, provide a wide range of dermatology services, including laser treatment to reduce the signs of sun damage.

What You Need To Know About Laser Treatment

Sun damage on your skin accumulates over time. That means all those hours you spent as a teenager can show up years later on your skin. You might begin to see:

  • Brown spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines, wrinkles, and creases
  • Abnormal moles or other signs of skin cancer

To fight these signs of sun damage, our dermatologist may recommend laser treatment, often known as laser resurfacing. It works using light to penetrate your skin. Laser energy has several beneficial effects on your skin. Laser treatment can:

  • Promote collagen production
  • Remove dead skin cells
  • Rejuvenate your skin
  • Reveal younger-looking skin
  • Tap into your body’s natural healing properties

These beneficial effects of laser treatment will help you enjoy skin that is:

  • Smoother
  • More vibrant
  • Younger looking
  • More even in tone and texture

Your laser treatment may be performed using a pulsed-dye laser or intense pulsed light, known as IPL. Recovery time is minimal and there is a low risk of side effects.

Each laser treatment takes between 15 and 45 minutes depending on the area treated. For best results, 1 to 5 treatments are recommended. Avoid sun exposure after your laser treatment.

Remember to protect your skin by applying sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, along with moisturizer every day.
