Cosmetic Dermatologist Serving Beverly Hills, Larchmont & surrounding areas of Los Angeles
If you have unsightly skin conditions, you've probably considered laser skin rejuvenation at some point. One concern Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald often hears from people interested in laser skin treatments is the matter of downtime. If you're a busy professional, it may not be easy to take multiple days off work to recover from a laser skin procedure.
Imagine your ideal tropical vacation -- the hot sun beating down on a sandy beach and a cool breeze blowing in from the ocean and through the palm trees, while you lounge on a chair and soak it in.
Less makeup and more naturally beautiful skin? Who doesn't want that? All the wonderful sunny California days can take away the glow your skin used to have. Instead you're faced with roughness, discoloration and a sort of dull and spotty complexion.
It can get discouraging to watch your skin change - especially when you feel you've made good choices in skin care.
Age spots can make you look a lot older than you are. These discolorations are also referred to as "brown spots" and "liver spots." Although the decreased cell turnover associated with age contributes to these spots, they are actually caused by sun exposure. Prolonged time soaking up UVA/UVB rays causes your body to respond with an increase in melanin.
