Chronic sun exposure can cause premature aging and an increased risk of skin cancer. The implementation of a consistent sun protection strategy coupled with a comprehensive topical prescription and skin care program will create a healthier more youthful appearing skin.
Brown spots and patchy, diffuse blotchy pigmentation can develop as a result of sun exposure, hormonal factors and genetic predisposition. Fortunately, there are a variety of non-invasive treatment modalities to improve uneven skin tone and blotchy pigmentation. Along with the consistent use of a broad spectrum sunscreen and targeted topical prescription and non- prescription remedies, chemical peels can be helpful in lightening hyperpigmentation. Silkpeel Dermalinfusion combines exfoliation with infusion of therapeutic solutions to hasten the resolution of hyperpigmentation resulting from melasma or excessive sun exposure. Fraxel and MedLite laser treatments are also efficacious in hastening the resolution of sun induced freckles and brown spots.
Telangiectasia, facial blood vessels, broken capillaries and diffuse facial redness can develop as a result of sun exposure and rosacea. The Candela Vbeam Pulsed Dye Laser is highly effective for lessening or removing these unattractive vascular lesions. Multiple treatments are generally necessary for optimal clearing.
While wrinkles can occur as a result of the natural aging process, sun exposure, smoking, environmental pollutants and stress can exacerbate skin aging.

As we age our natural cell turnover slows, causing retention of skin cells on the surface of the skin. This leads to a dull, lackluster skin surface. There are a variety of topical nonprescription and prescription remedies that can stimulate cell renewal. A myriad of exfoliating treatments can also stimulate cell renewal and rejuvenate and refresh the skin including:
While most scars tend to improve with time, sometimes the healing process leads to the development of red, thickened, elevated scars or depressed and indented scars. Fortunately, there are many treatment options available to improve the appearance of acne induced, surgical, traumatic and other types of scars. Fraxel laser treatments can improve the appearance of indented and depressed scars and are especially beneficial for the treatment of acne scars. Vbeam laser treatments can lessen depressed and elevated red scars. A series of treatments with the MedLite laser can stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of depressed acne scars. Filler injections with the latest FDA approved fillers can fill certain depressed scars creating a more even, smooth skin surface.

So please consider yourself hugged.Pat L - DR. PRICE’ S PATIENT
