Sun-Related Skin Consultation Overview
At a sun-related skin consultation, we will provide you with an intimate, one-on-one discussion about the health of your skin. The sun can damage your skin in many ways that will need a medical intervention to properly regenerate healthier skin again. Our experienced medical aestheticians and dermatology team at ZO Skin Centre® Beverly Hills, CA will provide you with an in-depth analysis of your skin and then procure a skin care plan to meet your needs. From hyperpigmentation to textural issues to skin cancer screenings, we will take on the challenge of easing your dark spots, wrinkles, lines, and/or the rough texture your sun-damaged skin may be presenting.
Sun-damaged skin can present itself in many ways besides the occasional sunburn. Over time, the sun will cause your skin to evolve. Wrinkles, pigmentation spots, loss of hydration, and skin disease or disorders are all possibilities your skin could endure with repeated overexposure to the harmful rays of the sun.
When you have an over production of melanin in your facial skin, it can be very difficult to treat pigmentation conditions without professional medical help. We consult with patients with sun-damaged skin presenting as hyperpigmentation (freckles, sun spots, dark patches, blotchy skin, and more).
Would you like to have a skin analysis that includes an assessment for skin cancer? Sun damage can cause skin cancer, and we recommend that you have a regular check-up and screening every 6 – 12 months if you are at-risk. Our consultations for skin cancer will assess abnormalities in your skin, check moles for size and color, and examine dark spots. We can also recommend products to help prevent skin cancer with our high SPF sunscreens, which needs to be worn daily (especially on the vulnerable areas: the face, neck, hands, and feet). If we suspect that you have the characteristics of skin cancer, it will be imperative to speak with a doctor or dermatologist about the findings.
Malignant melanoma is a serious form of skin cancer most often caused by sun overexposure, and if not treated, can spread rapidly. If you have a melanoma or have been treated for this severe type of skin cancer, it is highly important that you wear a powerful UVA + UVB sun protectant on your skin. At the ZO Skin Centre®, we have a series of sunscreen formulations that may work well with your skin for prevention.
The sun can bring out a hyperpigmentation called melasma, which is a hormonal pigmentation condition. Melasma consultations will assess the severity of your condition, and we will strategize ways to reduce the appearance of melasma flare-ups. We also can recommend ZO® Skin Health products and services for treatment, such as the ZO® Controlled Depth Peel™ with or without a laser skin resurfacing. Melasma is a skin condition that has to be managed as there is no cure. Keep in mind that even with aggressive or consistent treatment, sometimes the pigmentation will return to the same spot on your skin. Superficial melasma responds well to creams and disappears, but deep melasma may require a combination of peels and procedures.
Sun-Related Skin Consultation Reviews
"Hi I experienced remarkable results as a patient of Dr. Obsgi . I am a 62 year old male major airline Captain I came in with highly UV photo damaged , aged skin, sagging (skin laxity) roseasia. As the doctor said - "your skin cells are asleep!" I had a combined CO2/fractal laser and Blue Peel - easy recovery and amazing results, tightened youthful skin. Dr. Obsgi has a strict skin preparation program pre-procedure for most effective results. This may be 30-90 days. Staff and patient education are amazing. This is a "skin health institute" with on site outpatient surgery center. Dr Obagi is a pioneer in the field of dermatology skin health. Post procedure I had a "recovery" phase using Obsgi skin products. The Obagi skin product is science based , effective and pleasant to use. Now I get constant unsolicited compliments with people saying that I look 20 years younger !"- S.B. / Yelp / Jan 27, 2017
"I went to Anita Gardner NP for a clear and bright laser treatment on my face. I had a sun spot on on nose that kept getting more noticeable. After the treatment the skin gets a bit red and dry but after that my skin was clear, smooth, and my sun spot that I was embarrassed about for years was gone!I'm so happy with the results. My skin looks like it did when I was 20! I've also seen her for botox and lip injections, and was extremely pleased with the results. I won't go to anyone else and send all of my friends to Anita."- L.J. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2017
