How does the sun affect skin?

Collagen is a fibrous protein in the skin. It creates a meshwork that keeps the skin taut, and smooth. Ultraviolet light from the sun destroys collagen. Over time, reduced collagen allows skin to sag into wrinkles and folds. Meanwhile, sun exposure is also causing pigmentation changes – brown spots, red spots, and tiny visible blood vessels. Because youthful complexions usually have an even tone and texture, these irregularities add years to your face.

While high-quality creams and lotions are essential to a great skin maintenance regimen, they don’t produce desired anti-aging results. The skin needs extra help to reverse the damage that has occurred over a lifetime.

How does laser dermatology help?

Lasers are one of the best modalities to combat signs of aging. Laser therapy works by targeting specific molecules in the skin with a focused wavelength of light.

  • Brown pigments to remove brown spots.
  • Red pigments, to eliminate red spots and blood vessels.
  • Water to stimulate the natural production of new collagen to reduce the depth and appearance of wrinkles.

Personal attention

Dr. Amanda Lloyd suggests laser treatments to refresh the skin and improve its tone and texture, for a healthy complexion throughout the year. Dr. Amanda Lloyd performs all of the laser treatments herself so your skin receives the very best care.
