Top 3 Skin Concerns & How to Treat Them
At Bare Medical Spa + Laser Center, we’re equipped to treat a wide array of concerns. Here are the top three problem areas we hear about every day, and treatments to help you feel like the most confident version of yourself!
1- Under Eye Bags & Circles
Skin pigmentation, blood vessels visible under thin skin, and volume loss all contribute to under-eye circles. Depending on your genetics, amount of sun damage and lifestyle, dark circles could be caused by one of these things or all three! Most often, we combine treatments for the best outcome.
If you’re not already using an eye cream, now is the time to invest. The skin around your eyes is thin and sensitive and requires an area-specific cream. Whether your concern is eye bags, dark circles, or both depending on the day, we can help. Our personal favorites are Obagi Elastiderm Cream and Obagi Elastiderm Serum.
As we age, the fat pads in our midface shrink creating a flattened appearance of the cheek and allowing the skin to hang down around our nasolabial folds and jowls. In addition, skin loses elasticity creating even more droop. For many, this is an ongoing point of contention that feels impossible to resolve: luckily, it’s not. We have a few treatments up our sleeves to help you feel confident again.
While many think that filler is just to enhance the lips and address wrinkles, the injectable can also be used to treat jowls. Knowing that jowls are a result of midface volume loss and skin laxity, by replacing volume around the cheek area, we can prop the skin back up where it once used to be. For some patients, midface filler is all they need to fix jowls!
3- Age Spots
Getting older means you’ve likely begun to notice the effects from the sun: aka— age spots. While these brown, gray, or black spots may seem unsightly or unmanageable, we’re here to help.
Obagi Clear Serum
One of our favorite products, the prescription-only serum contains 4% hydroquinone, which helps correct hyperpigmentation, such as dark spots, sun spots, age spots, and other types of discoloration. Expect a healthy and even skin tone after regular use.
Resolve is an innovative laser that significantly reduces pigmentation problems. Using a handheld device design, Resolve delivers pulses of energy to rejuvenate the skin. Similar to the technology used to remove tattoo ink, the Picoway Resolve breaks up pigment particles leaving you with a brighter complexion.
