As warm weather arrives, we’re all looking forward to long, leisurely hours outside. These days, you’re protecting your skin with the right sunscreen every time you play sports, work in the garden or head to the pool. But what about the dark spots and other skin imperfections left behind from summers past?
No worries. As one of Greater Philadelphia’s foremost experts in cosmetic facial surgery and related treatments, Dr. Farole can eradicate the sun damage you may have sustained with safe, effective laser treatments. Here’s an overview of how the treatments work and what to expect.
How Laser Treatments help to reverse sun damage
Laser treatments can repair fine lines, small scars, freckles, dark spots and other imperfections caused by sun exposure, aging and hormones. Treatments can be applied to the face, neck and chest, where the signs of sun damage are usually the greatest.
Unlike drastic and invasive procedures requiring a hospital stay, laser treatments can be given in the comfort of our Bala Cynwyd office. After applying local anesthesia, Dr. Farole will have you relax in a reclined position while he applies laser to fine lines and wrinkles. The laser will prompt your skin to shed its outer layers, uncovering healthy, firm skin underneath.
Since laser treatments are done on an outpatient basis, you’ll enjoy minimum downtime while seeing visible improvement in your skin’s texture and appearance. Healing takes a few days, sometimes up to 1 week, but many patients find that they can resume their normal activities the same day.
Schedule now to enjoy the sunshine-filled days ahead
It’s important to note that you’ll need to avoid direct sunlight after your laser treatment, so we hope you’ll schedule your appointment with our Bala Cynwyd staff soon. This way, you’ll be ready to enjoy the gorgeous spring and summer sunshine as soon as the good weather arrives.
