3 ways to give your skin a fresh start for spring


As a season known for cleaning and growth, spring is a great time to start a new beginning – especially for your skin. Over time, our skin endures a lot from sun exposure, pollutants and the effects of aging. This spring, give your complexion a fresh start with one of the following three treatments:

1. Skin resurfacing
If you’re looking for a way to dramatically reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face, skin resurfacing could be the procedure for you. At Skin & Cosmetic Solutions, we complete this treatment with a gentle UltraPulse laser that removes layers of damaged skin to reveal a smooth, even surface. What’s especially exciting about this procedure is its level of precision. Dr. Puente can adjust it according to your needs – like maximum results or faster recovery.

2. Microdermabrasion
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, microdermabrasion was one of the most popular minimally invasive procedures in 2015. This treatment exfoliates the skin with micro-crystals, removing dead skin cells and leaving a clear, rejuvenated complexion. It’s effective to reduce the look of fine lines, scars, hyperpigmentation and acne.

If you regret your tattoo, getting it removed can help you get a fresh start for your skin.If you regret your tattoo, getting it removed can help you get a fresh start for your skin.

3. Tattoo removal
Getting a tattoo can make you feel adventurous at a young age, but it can be a decision you regret later in life. According to statistics by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, nearly 20,000 of the tattoo removal procedures in 2013 were performed on adults age 35 to 50.

“As more people continue to get tattoos, the more people are having tattoos removed,” Dr. Roy G. Geronemus, director of Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, told Medical Daily.

Thanks to great strides in laser technology, tattoo removal is far less limited than it was in the past. While these procedures used to struggle to remove colored or intricately designed tattoos, now they have no problem causing them to fade or disappear completely. At Skin & Cosmetic Solutions, we use the impressively effective and versatile VersaPulse laser.
