What to do about age spots and sun damage? September 11, 2013 Cole Summer is coming to a close. And as the days get shorter and the sun less conspicuous, your skin is breathing a sigh of relief. As we age, our skin’s natural ability to fend off harsh UV rays from the summer sun begins to deteriorate. And years of sun exposure can actually accelerate the effects of aging, causing a complexion mottled with dark spots, wrinkles, and overall discoloration. At Cole Aesthetic Center, we offer a variety of skin rejuvenation and skin care treatments that reduce the visual effects of damaging summertime sun and restore your healthy, youthful glow. Chemical Peels A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to reduce the visual effects of sun damage and improve the overall appearance your skin. With minimal downtime, a chemical peel treats discoloration, diminishes wrinkles and fine lines, reduces acne and acne scarring, and improves overall skin texture with just one treatment. Laser Peels and Resurfacing Cole Aesthetic Center offers a comprehensive array of non-surgical skin rejuvenating services that are designed to make you look as great as you feel including MicroLaser Peel, South Bay Peel, “Fresh Peel”, or Laser Resurfacing treatment.
