The right laser treatment will work wonders for sun damaged skin. Here are few of the best laser options to reverse the effects of too much sun and leave your skin smooth and even.

Active FX CO2 Laser Skin ReSurfacing Laser skin resurfacing is a popular method for eliminating surface imperfections such as aging lines and sun spots. With Active FX resurfacing, laser light is pulsed over the affected part of the body to eliminate the top layers of damaged skin and reveal fresh and even skin beneath. Aftercare for laser resurfacing is important—you may need to apply ice packs to reduce swelling, take prescribed medications, and apply ointments as instructed. Results are usually dramatic and long-lasting.

Total FX Laser Skin ResurfacingTotal FX is one of the latest laser resurfacing techniques available today, combining Active sun-damaged-skinFX technology with Deep FX in order to optimize the results of just one treatment. Total FX removes the signs of sun damage and leaves you with unblemished skin by essentially causing controlled damage to precise areas in order to trigger the growth of new skin. Fractional CO2 laser micro-beams reach the deepest layers of your skin to stimulate the production of collagen. Total FX laser resurfacing produces surprisingly long lasting results, because the natural production of collagen and skin growth will continue for several months after treatment.

FotoFacial The FotoFacial process uses a series of intense pulsed light to ease aging lines and sun damage. Fotofacials work by shooting high intensity pulses of light into the deep layers of the skin. The heat causes damage to vessels and lesions, sparking the body’s own natural healing process. Unlike with laser resurfacing, Fotofacials leave the outer surface of the skin untouched, which makes them the ideal treatments for patients who have sensitive skin or are looking for immediate results with little healing time required. Five treatments, which can be repeated as frequently as every three weeks, are recommended for optimal results.
