11 Aug Why We Love Skin Brightening Treatments (And Why You Should, Too!)
One of the great things about Florida is that there’s a lot of sun.
One of the bad things about Florida is that there’s also a lot of sun.
Perhaps you spent a lot of time out in that sun when you were younger and didn’t think too much of it. Now, a few years or even a few decades later you’re paying for your earlier nonchalance with uneven spots of pigment on your face. Since it’s impossible to go back in time and move into the shade more often, what’s a girl to do?
Well, skin brightening treatments can work wonders at undoing the damage.
Don’t Let the Sun Leave Its Marks on You
Unlike sun damage on other parts of your body, you can’t hide what it does to your face. It’s right there for the whole world to see. It can take a toll on your self-esteem after a while and make you want to avoid social opportunities (and people!) altogether.
Sun damage on the skin may look like a birthmark or an enlarged age spot. These are usually light brown in color. Red markings appear like a sore or a scab that won’t go away. Picking at it only makes it worse and no over-the-counter product can eliminate it, no matter what the bottle claims.
Skin brightening treatments use light wavelengths to eliminate the different colored pigment at the deepest layers of your epidermis. You’ll notice visible changes after just a few days, and the spots may be gone completely in as little as 10 days after your initial light based-treatment.
How Does Professional Skin Brightening Work?
At the start of your session, you put on a pair of oversized sunglasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. A handheld device that emits lights wavelengths to all of the layers of your skin is then run over your skin. As these wavelengths reach the deepest level, they stimulate your body’s own fibroblasts which are natural collagen producers. Fibroblasts normally become less active as people go through the aging process. However, the light wavelengths affect the cellular level of the fibroblasts so you start producing collagen again like you did when you were young.
How cool is that?
Your skin is not only free of blemishes within several days of a skin brightening treatment, but it looks and feels smoother as well.
You may not be able to jump into a time machine to achieve younger-looking skin, but a skin brightening treatment may be the next best thing.
