SUN SPOT REMOVAL
The sun is fun to play in, but it can also wreak havoc on your skin. The damaged cells from UV rays and environment die and congeal on the surface of the skin, causing dark spots known as sun spots, freckles and age spots. What used to be a permanent side effect of unprotected sun on your skin can now be treated thanks to advances in skin care technology. We can permanently remove these dark, unsightly spots with laser treatments to enhance your skin’s appearance in as little as 1-3 treatments.
While interventions for sun damage run a full gamut from topical creams to skin peels and laser treatments, The New Canvas specializes in providing the best sun damage and skin therapy treatments available today. Our treatments can erase dark spots, smooth skin texture and even restart collagen production.
How does it work?
After a thorough consultation, your Practitioner will examine the area to be treated and go over any possible risks or side effects depending on your skin type and spot type. A Q-switched Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm), which can be interchanged with a wavelength of 532 and 694 nm, is used to identify the target pigment and fragment the melanin cells. This mild procedure can be completed in as little as 15 minutes to an hour, depending on how many spots are being treated. Topical numbing medication is available, but generally not required because a cryo-cooling system is used for your comfort. The treated areas will appear darker for 7-14 days, then the melanin particles will peel or slough off, leaving you with youthful and rejuvenated skin.
With proper after care, these pesky little spots will be gone for good! To ensure the longevity of your results and reduce the chance of developing new spots, regular microdermabrasion and high frequency treatments can be done to remove dead surface layers of skin that accumulate over time. These highly popular treatments also address skin texture, fine lines, kill bacteria causing acne and blackheads, tighten and plump the skin and increase collagen production. Couple that with our Vegan, all natural and organic product line, and you’re sure to maintain the beautiful, youthful glow your Mamma gave you.
