As we get older the amount of time we’ve spent in the sun can be seen on our face – and I’m not talking about a sun-kissed tan, I’m talking about sunspots and wrinkles.  Not only can the spots and wrinkles age us, but they can also get worse as we get older.

The question is – can they actually be reversed?  

And the answer, happily, is yes!

Facial Aesthetic Concepts offers several different ways to reverse sun damage and the signs of aging.

Fractional CO2 – this one-time treatment diminishes wrinkles, improves sun damage and has minimal downtime. It also stimulates new collagen and elastin and breaks up the pigmentation. It also can treat melasma!  And if you’re like me and got melasma after pregnancy this treatment might be perfect for you.

DVD RF – Dynamic Variable Depth (DVD) Radiofrequency-Microneedling – This minimal downtime procedure is designed to treat various skin conditions and firms the skin.  It improves skin tone and other textural changes, such as fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pore size, photodamage and light scarring from acne.

IPL/Photofacial –  It combats dark spots from sun damage. My personal favorite! IPL uses pulses of light to concentrate treatment directly on the areas and problems that need improvement or correction, without any damage to the surrounding skin. Plus, the heat generated during IPL Therapy works to stimulate the upper layers of your skin and increase the production of natural collagen — that means healthier, firmer, and younger-looking skin for you! 

MicroneedlingMicroneedling is a no-downtime procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of the skin and quality of both skin tone and texture and stimulates collagen and elastin creation. It allows for potent topical products to be delivered deeper into the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin creation.  It diminishes wrinkles and dark spots from sun damage.

BotoxBotox is a purified protein that, when injected into facial muscles can selectively inactivate certain muscles that cause dynamic facial lines. Botox is used to treat the frown lines between the eyes, the horizontal lines of the forehead, and the wrinkles around the eyes.  Botox can take between 7-14 days to kick in and can last 3-4 months as each person varies.  

Fun Fact: at FAC we use one of the smallest needles compared to other practices to inject Botox for patient comfort.

Fillers/JuvedermJuvederm is a quick procedure with minimal discomfort, where results can be seen immediately following the treatment.  Our providers perform more Botox and filler more treatments than any other practice in Orange County!
