Hi, I’m Heather Schwartzmann, PA-C and I’m so excited to be your new lifestyle expert for aesthetic medicine. I’m passionate about helping people feel good from the outside in and love knowing what I do not only makes people look better but helps build self esteem as well.
With summer over and the holidays quickly approaching, I want to share some tips with you. As a native Floridian and with a practice in Boca Raton, I know how much people love to enjoy the outdoors and I also know how much damage it can cause on our skin. Sun damage can present as freckles, solar lentigines, collagen loss and wrinkles. Luckily, we have multiple treatments options to help with this and the best time to treat sun damage is when you can commit to staying out of the sun.
One of my favorite ways of treating hyperpigmentation is with an IPL or intense pulsed light laser. Essentially, the light energy penetrates beneath the surface of the skin where it breaks up hyperpigmentation or collection of melanin. The melanin is then either brought to the skins surface in a coffee ground like scab or broken down within the skin where its excreted through the lymphatic system. Some other benefits of the IPL laser are smaller pores, tighter skin and collagen formation. I recommend 3-5 treatments spaced one month apart and bi-annual maintenance.
To maintain your results and prevent more damage, SPF should be worn every day. We have you covered there as well, our office carries multiple skin care lines to meet all of our patients’ skin care needs. Since it is imperative to avoid sun exposure two weeks before and after every treatment, Fall is the perfect time to get started to ensure you look your best at all of those upcoming holiday parties!
