As the weather cools down and leaves start to fall, we leave behind memorable long, hot days on the beach that we spent sipping lemonade with our toes in the sand. Little did we know, that as we're having fun in the sun, our skin was slowly playing the price. Exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays is the lead cause of direct skin damage with a possibility of developing skin cancer with increased risks.

VITAHL Medical Aesthetics offers treatments to heal the occasional sunburn scar, sunspots and melasma that left their mark. “There are wonderful options to repair sun-damaged skin,” said Dr. Tahl N. Humes, founder and medical director of VITAHL Medical Aesthetics. “Downtime is short, pain is minimal, but reward is great.”

Skin Treatment Options

Chemical peels are great for treating sun damage and wrinkles as well as for exfoliating the skin. The peel solution of varying strengths is applied to the skin in layers.  Over the next several days, the outer layers of the skin will flake a peel off to reveal the fresh, undamaged skin underneath.

IPL, intense pulse light, helps restore skin and correct damage caused by the sun.  This light-based therapy can help minimize brown spots, age spots and sun damage.  It will improve the look and feel of your skin in short treatment sessions.

PICO Genesis is a nice option for those that suffer from melasma, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation and sun and age spots.  The treatment uses a non-thermal laser that rebuilds the deeper layers of the skin.  The laser breaks up darkened pigment and lighter, brighter skin will appear in just weeks.

Hydradermabrasion manually exfoliates and hydrates the skin. The treatment unclogs pores, improves skin tone and texture, and results in a brighter-looking complexion.

Once treatments renew the skin’s health and appearance, facials throughout the fall and winter will keep your skin hydrated and nourished. Since we tend to wear more makeup in the cooler months, regular dermaplaning sessions will gently remove the peach fuzz and leave a smooth palate.
