Our mantra at enhanceskin is protect, rejuvenate and enhance. Sun protection is essential every day, (summer and winter, indoors and outdoors), but you need to seriously ramp it up when you’re enjoying the great outdoors lifestyle we’re lucky enough to enjoy here in the top of the South.
We live in a perfect region to enjoy everything summer has to offer, with beaches, cycling and walking tracks aplenty. But unless you have been rigorous in your dedication to protecting your skin, there’s a chance you may be hanging on to a holiday souvenir you didn’t want. The aesthetic signs of sun damage are unmistakable, and dark spots, red veins and other pigmentation changes are just the start of the aging process caused by too much sun.
But there is a ray of (UV free) light at the end of the tunnel, because here at enhanceskin we can help you turn back the clock on historic sun damage. If your skin has started to show signs of pigment change or you’ve started to notice red veins then you should consider the following treatments.
- IPL – Intense Pulse Light – Skin Rejuvenation
Light is used to selectively treat pigmentation, red veins, or both. This brief treatment requires no downtime and after a course of 3 to 5 sessions will give a 70 to 80 percent improvement in appearance such that hopefully you no longer need to hide under makeup!

- Fractora – Fractional Resurfacing
This procedure uses fractionated Radio Frequency energy to rejuvenate and resurface the skin. It is able to slow the effects of ageing and restore your skin. It’s perfect for reducing red and brown spots and fine lines, but has the added benefits of tightening your skin and improving the overall skin texture. This does require some downtime, but it is the gold-standard in resurfacing treatment options (equivalent/better than Laser!) Some results can be seen immediately, but typically results are seen a couple of weeks after treatment and continue up to three months after treatment. You can expect to have between 1 and 4 Fractora sessions. Read more about Fractora – Fractional Resurfacing HERE.
- Home Skin Care
Most people benefit from medical grade skin care include Vitamins A+C and Pigment Reducing solutions as well as or instead of in house treatments.
