There is no scientific correlation between sun and acne prevention. Sun exposure may mask it somewhat, but the fact is the sun is a key factor in premature aging. While, a suntan might temporarily mask your acne, the sun damage that results can cause irritations that can actually worsen the condition. Not to mention the wrinkles and fine lines to add to it. Clearly it is best to seek out other treatment methods other than sun exposure.
At Sona you can control Acne with light-based treatments utilizing Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT), killing acne-causing bacteria by interrupting the metabolic process. Treating active acne in its early stages minimizes the potential for scarring.
This technology can also be used to eliminate the appearance of sun damage or age spots. The AFT laser hones in on color producing melanin cells within pigments, in effect “bleaching” the cells. Our treatment providers customize the treatments to each individual client using multiple AFT hand pieces that have different wave lengths to correct pigmentation/coloration issues.
