Autumn is the time for SKIN REJUVENATION! We have all enjoyed summertime with the outdoor fun that it offers but now, we face the consequences. Photo aging, unlike natural aging, gives us dry, coarse skin, skin discoloration, freckling and deeper wrinkles. We can help you to minimize the effects of summer sun by designing a treatment package for you based on your age, severity of skin damage, type of skin, your tolerance and preference for specific products and procedures and of course, your budget.

There are many PRODUCTS including hydrating and lightening agents and Retinol that can help improve sun damaged skin. At Bella Visage, we carry a range of such products and can guide your use of products tailored to your skin type and particular issues. However, more aggressive treatments or procedures may be helpful in minimizing or reversing sun damage to your skin.

CHEMICAL PEELS are often used to minimize sun damage and irregular skin pigmentation. The top layer of the skin is removed allowing the skin to regenerate, improving its’ appearance. We incorporate a chemical peel into our medical grade HydraFacial MD, one of the only such devices available in Western North Carolina.

IPL (Intense Pulse Light Therapy). No treatment is better for removing the superficial brown spots and freckles caused by sun exposure to the face, hands and other areas of the body than IPL. IPL differs from laser therapy in that it delivers multiple wavelengths of light with each pulse and is non-ablative therapy meaning that it does not remove the top layer of skin.

LASER SKIN RESURFACING uses high energy, single wavelength light to literally resurface the skin. At Bella Visage, our ResurFX is a non-ablative laser treating the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the top layers. This laser will require multiple treatments, spaced at least one month apart to give the maximum effect but does not require the down time associated with the ablative CO2 Fraxel laser.

We would love for you to come to Bella Visage for a consultation to find out which options are best for you!
