Society today has become infatuated with the sun, worshiping it to a degree. Though the sun provides many benefits, overexposure can cause harm. As we age, our faces are prone to losing volume and diminishing in healthy appearance. Additionally, the sun’s intense heat rays can speed up that process. Solar Loss™ is a unique and exciting facial rejuvenation which takes advantage of a dermal filler and PRP to correct sun damage.
How Does Solar Loss™ Work?
Using a hyaluronic-acid based filler, your doctor will restore volume to the affected area of your face, increasing the size and fullness. The filler acts like an inflated cushion, providing support to facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to aging. During treatment, your Doctor will determine which filler is right for you.
Additionally, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment is very useful in treating photo-damaged skin. Characteristics of skin habitually exposed to the sun include wrinkles and an uneven complexion. PRP uses your blood, so it’s completely natural. When injected, the PRP solution adds volume, filling out wrinkles. Additionally, new collagen and tissue growth is stimulated, rejuvenating the skin.
For further results, consider a Photofacial. Photofacials are designed to repair skin damaged by the sun. Photofacial treatments use pulses of light to treat a variety of skin issues including sun damage, hyperpigmentation, skin discolorations and fine lines.
Are There Side Effects?
The most common side effects are redness, bruising, or swelling. These side effects generally last for a short time and are mild. As with all procedures that involve an injection through the skin, there is a risk of infection.
Is Solar Loss™ Right For Me?
Depending on your exposure to the sun’s harsh rays, the benefits can last up to one year. You may want to re-touch at points to periodically restore facial volume. Because only you know what look is right for you, it’s important to discuss treatment and expectations with your healthcare provider. During a consultation, he will determine if Solar Loss™ is right for you, plus how much product is appropriate to enhance your look.
