Two things are unavoidable facts of life: the sun shines, and we all get older. Sun and age affect how our skin looks as brown spots, wrinkles and discolorations form on previously clear and youthful skin. But, don't despair. You can repair your sun damaged and aging skin in Warrenton, VA, with the Alma Harmony XL Photofacial. Used by board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Juan-Carlos Caballero, this innovative IPL, or Intense Pulse Light, therapy removes a wide variety of skin lesions and pigment variations to reveal younger, more attractive skin. It may be just what you need to achieve a truly rejuvenated look.
Common skin lesions
The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery says that UV light, poor diet and simple wear and tear change how our skin looks. Common skin problems Dr. Caballero sees at Warrenton Dermatology & Skin Therapy Center are:
- Brown facial spots
- Angiomas, small lesions composed of cherry- or spider-like blood vessels
- Broken capillaries
- Wrinkling and fine lines
- Melasmas, larger brown or grayish-brown patches on the face
- Rosacea, a generalized redness of the face, along with small red pimples and lines
These problems are unsightly, and as they progress, they become harder to cover with cosmetics.
What the Alma Harmony Photofacial can do
Treatment with the Alma Harmony XL Laser clears facial skin of many of these problems. Effective, targeted, safe and FDA-cleared for more than 60 medical and aesthetic applications, this amazing handheld tool delivers IPL, or Intense Pulse Light to selected areas of the face. While there is a mild sensation of heat, the Alma Laser causes no pain and leaves patients with just a vague redness for a few days.
Used on various kinds of spots, the treatments leave skin clear in about 10 to 14 days. Amazingly, the photofacial treatment is done entirely in-office and has no special preparation. The patient relaxes in a comfortable treatment chair with his or her eyes protected by special glasses.
Know your skin
Just as you get a routine check-up from your primary care physician annually, you should get a skin assessment and cancer screening from Dr. Cabellero each year. He'll look for a wide variety of skin problems, including the three basic kinds of skin cancer. Additionally, he'll discuss your aesthetic issues--in other words, how you would like your skin to appear in terms of texture, color and pigmentation. Ask about the Alma Harmony XL Photofacial!
