Summer Is Over, but the Damage Has Just Begun! Reverse the Effects of Photoaging: Rejuvenate and Refresh Sun Damaged Skin

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 29, 2005 -- The warm rays of the sun feel great all summer, but our skin pays the price as cooler weather moves in. Neglecting a regimen of effective post-summer skincare can leave your skin cracking like a Fall leaf come wintertime.

Overexposure to the sun, damaging free radicals and UV light changes the texture and weakens the elastic properties of the skin, causing wrinkles and furrows, broken capillaries, brown or "age spots," pre-cancerous lesions (actinic keratoses), and potentially skin cancer. Because photoaging of the skin is cumulative, it is never too late to start a sun protection program.

The very latest advances in the battle against photoaging involve a unique combination of lasers, radio-frequency, intense pulsed light and injectables developed at Naficy Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center. Depending on your level of sun exposure, you can determine your entry point in a full line of customized post-summer skincare and wellness treatments.

Some Sun Exposure / Medium to Light Tan:

Polaris Wrinkle Reduction uses dual laser and radio frequency energy to tighten fine lines and wrinkles, which appear more pronounced following exposure to the sun and free radicals in the environment. For optimal results, Dr. Naficy pairs Polaris treatments with Botox and Restylane to further relax, plump, and revitalize dry, aging skin.

Rare Sun Exposure / Light to No Tan:

Intensive Fotofacial, Dr. Naficy's most innovative procedure to enhance the appearance of damaged skin, applies a topical photodynamic agent to the skin prior to treatment. Through photodynamic therapy, the intense pulsed light (IPL) is captured to produce dramatic results to overall skin tone, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce and prevent acne breakouts and even out sun spots and pigmentation.

No Sun Exposure / No Tan:

MicroLaser Peels are a new and less invasive form of Laser Resurfacing treatments, using an erbium laser to remove a very precise, fine outer layer of skin. Naficy Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center is one of the first in the country to offer MicroLaser Peels as a minimal downtime alternative to Laser Resurfacing. Dr. Naficy suggests performing a MicroLaser Peel on a Thursday, allowing you to return to work on Monday with a new layer of healthy, glowing skin.
