How to Conquer Summer Sun Damage New Canaan, CT

October 13, 2022
Even when we try our best to stay protected, sun damage can be sneaky. While you may not feel any discomfort when sunlight hits your skin, your healthy cells can still be damaged. Over time, that damage comes to the surface in the form of wrinkles, dark spots, freckles and hyperpigmentation, to name a few. Fortunately, reversing sun damage is more than just possible with the versatility and power of aesthetic laser technology.

At Intentional Self Aesthetics, our best-in-class lasers and light-based therapies allow us to correct pigmentation irregularities, diminish signs of aging and more with minimal downtime — so you can reclaim healthy, radiant skin once and for all!

Let’s get to know these glow-getting treatments:

BBL® HERO™ photofacial

As the most advanced intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment, BBL HERO photofacial combines broadband light with High Energy Rapid Output to treat a myriad of skin concerns on the face and large areas of the body within mere minutes. BBL HERO quickly and comfortably delivers impressive results with four times the speed, three times the peak power and two times the cooling as the original BBL device. Without downtime, BBL HERO uses non-invasive, high-energy light to break down pigmentation in the skin and stimulate vibrant collagen production. With just a single pass of the handpiece, BBL HERO can improve the appearance of age spots, sunspots, freckles, redness and rosacea, dullness, uneven skin tone, small veins and broken capillaries and more on the face, neck, décolleté, arms, legs, back, buttocks and abdomen. You can expect to see initial improvements just a few days after your session, with benefits continuing to build in the following weeks and months.

Halo® laser skin resurfacing

Intense skin renewal is the name of the game with Halo laser skin resurfacing. As the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, Halo combines both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to simultaneously treat both the skin’s outer layers and the deeper dermis with shorter downtime than similar lasers. While stimulating your body’s natural healing response, Halo can target common pigmentation irregularities, signs of aging, skin dullness, uneven texture, pore size, acne scars and more for all skin types. You will notice initial results two to five days after your Halo with continued benefits over the following weeks and months as new collagen is produced. Best of all, with just one to two treatments, or a series of milder treatments, your Halo glow can last for years!

Your brighter, more evenly toned complexion is just a consultation away! Call 203.594.1890 or request a consultation online today to get started.
