Beauty: September 2013


Doctor’s Orders: Reversing Sun Damage
There are a number of things you can do to reverse the effects of the fun in the sun you had this summer. Dr. Barbara Bopp of the Metairie clinic, Bopp Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery, recommends a few options for any budget:
BBL laser, a BroadBand Light source, is alternatively known as the “Forever Young” treatment. It removes the red and brown spots incurred while tanning.

The Cosmo peel is an advanced chemical treatment for improving skin texture and removing brown spots from the face, neck, chest, arms and hands.

Using products that contain a skin lightener, like hydroquinone, will help reduce sun spots and blotchiness.

Another great product is NIA24, which uses an advanced Pro-Niacin technology to prevent and repair visible and invisible signs of sun damage within the skin.
