Now more than ever is the time to repair Summer skin damage and prepare our skin for what lies ahead. At Manhattan Aesthetics our team of expert Dermatologists and laser clinicians have the tools and talent to repair, enhance and protect your skin safely and effectively.

Repair

While soaking up the summer’s sun may feel good it can have serious consequences leaving the skin dull and dehydrated. Not to mention UV exposure increases pigment leaving the skin blotchy and uneven. Exfoliation with microdermabrasion and light peels such as salicylic acid are a great option to slough off the dead skin and generate fresh new skin cells. Various laser technologies and techniques are excellent for correcting sun damage:

IPL Photo Facial-Intense Pulsed Light Therapy is the gold standard when it comes to eliminating brown spots, freckling and redness caused from the sun. IPL uses various wavelengths to to target discoloration. Typically 3-4 sessions are required to achieve a complete result. (0 Downtime)

VI Peel-The VI Peel is the ultimate chemical peel containing a myriad of peels (TCA, Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol) in one proprietary formula. By eliminating the damaged top layer of the skin the VI Peel will reveal glowing luminous healthy tissue very often in just a single visit. (0 Downtime)

Fraxel Laser-Fraxel laser uses a tiny beam to remove the top layers of the skin which are the most affected by sun damage. The result is tighter, brighter and fresher looking skin. (1-2 Days Downtime)

Enhance

Clean glowing skin is the foundation for healthy skin! Skin care is never one size fits all and requires careful analysis and attention to detail. Each individual has varying needs and conditions ranging from normal to oily to combination to aging skin and everything in between! It is important to entrust in a licensed clinician to navigate through the confusion of products and treatments to help you achieve a natural sustainable balance safely and efficiently. Simple procedures such as Laser Genesis, Aerolase NeoPod and Custom Facials will ensure your skin is healthy and nourished.

Protect

Newly rejuvenated skin deserves extra protection to keep it fresh, healthy and preserved. Sun damage is an oxidative process whereby UV rays and environmental contaminants such as pollution will trigger the release of free radicals that lead to signs of premature aging and physical defects. To counteract we always recommend using a Vitamin C Serum such as Skinceuticals CE Ferulic in conjunction with SPF. The reason for this is that the Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and will slow the rate of damage to the collagen and elastin in the skin caused by free radicals.
