Runners: Run Off That Sun Damage!
Runners take note! Long gone are the days of baking yourself in the sun for that fashionable tan. Natural, healthy skin is now the look people strive for and can be achieved despite long hours of running under the sun’s harmful rays.
Runners and cyclists enjoy training and racing outdoors. Along with that comes excessive sun exposure and an increased risk of sun damage, premature aging, and even skin cancer. In the summer months, runners tend to wear short-sleeved shirts or tank tops, shorts, and some even go shirtless, leaving the majority of their skin sun-exposed. You do not realize the damage you are doing to your skin until years later when it comes back to haunt you in the form of sun spots, broken vessels, redness, lax skin, and wrinkles. The good news is this photoaging can be corrected with various treatments and products. We proudly offer the following services to help restore your skin health.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)
is a treatment that delivers light energy similar to a laser device and is commonly used to reduce skin discoloration, including sun spots, redness, and broken capillaries. In addition to reducing discoloration, people often see a reduction in pore size, overall brightening of the skin, and slight collagen stimulation.
is the “non-laser” equivalent to Fraxel for collagen stimulation. This service uses microneeedles in a small cartridge to form micro punctures into the epidermis and top layer of the dermis. As we age, collagen and elastin production slows down causing uneven, lax skin texture and these micropunctures send a “wake up call” to the collagen reminding it to activate cell regeneration again. The result is firmer skin with greater elasticity, a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, smaller pore size, and overall improvement in skin health. Also successfully treats acne scars and hyperpigmentation.
improve many skin imperfections including discoloration from sun damage, acne, and softens fine lines and wrinkles. Peels effectively remove the damaged outer layers of skin and range from mild to aggressive depending on the severity of the skin issue and the desired result.
is an easy yet highly effective treatment that allows tiny crystal particles to exfoliate the top layer of skin, leaving your skin smooth and free of dead skin cells. This procedure reduces fine lines, light scars, and hyperpigmentation while reducing dead skin, which allows your skincare products to penetrate deeper and be more effective.
