Summer has passed, and we’re welcoming a new season. This fall, refresh your skin with a trip to SkinSpirit Long Beach (located at 2ND & PCH) or Newport Beach. The team of experts is sharing their top treatments that will have you feeling fresh and glowing.

First off, the IPL photofacial is an excellent post-summertime treatment; it minimizes discolorations of the skin that may have come from sun damage. SkinSpirit Long Beach expert practitioner Sara Kranke says, “We see so much sun damage in Southern California, and IPL is

excellent at removing the ‘browns’ and the ‘reds’ caused by the sun.” Photofacial treatments exist to reduce redness and hyperpigmentation. This non-laser treatment uses a precision light generator, and patients will start to see a difference after just one treatment—although three to five appointments are recommended. Kranke says, “I love that there is no downtime; you can come in and get an IPL and go out that night with glowing skin. I have clients that come in every month for IPL because they love the look of their skin afterward.” Tighter and younger-looking skin is what to expect after an IPL photofacial. “This is the workhorse on our team for delivering consistent results. I love knowing it will work!” SkinSpirit Newport Beach expert practitioner Jenn Izzarelli says. “It is also amazing for your hands, legs and chest too—don’t forget these areas that show our age and can get so damaged from years of sun exposure.” 

The next must-try treatment is the Lumenis ResurFX, which is the latest technology in laser skin rejuvenation. Seeing those aging effects from too many summers under the warm sun? It helps to reverse those marks by targeting wrinkles, discoloration and scarring. The non-ablative technology works without damaging the skin’s surface, moving into the skin’s deeper layers for positive collagen growth instead. There is little to no downtime with this procedure as well. Izzarelli says, “By making micro-canals in the skin, it resurfaces the skin, improving texture and pigment as well as reducing lines and scarring.” Youthful, glowing and radiant skin is what to expect after this treatment. “I have seen incredible results where patients come back after even one treatment and tell me how many compliments they are getting on their skin now,” Kranke explains.
