ZL Medspa

Especially in Arizona, the sun can cause a lot of damage. At ZL Medaesthetics, we offer a wide range of skin treatments to combat the effects of too much sun exposure. Our therapies combined with our specialists’ expertise will get your skin glowing and healthy before you know it.

Is your skin sun damaged?

Chances are, if you live in Arizona the answer is yes. Even if we can’t always feel it, every time we walk outside without any sunscreen, UV adds more damage to the skin. This can add up quickly and cause the following conditions:

  • Wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Loose skin
  • Spider veins
  • Skin splotches
  • Ruddiness 

BBL

The BroadBand Light (BBL)™ laser uses a multi-pass approach to precisely target sun damage and leave the skin rejuvenated and healthier-looking. 

HALO

As the first hybrid fractional laser, HALO™ combines two different wavelengths to address many conditions of the skin, and to stimulate the production of new collagen.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels of different strengths can be used to correct the appearance of sun damage. Our safe and effective peel options are proven to improve damage and stimulate skin cell turnover.

BroadBand Light

The BroadBand Light (BBL)™ laser by Sciton® uses intense flashes of light to penetrates the skin, causing damage to the pigment, tissue, or blood vessels. When this happens, your body’s “repair team” is signaled, thereby reducing the appearance of discoloration. Before your BBL treatment, you’ll be given protective eyewear, and a cooling gel will be applied to your skin to keep you comfortable.

The laser will deliver rapid bursts of light energy directly into the skin, with any discomfort being very minimal. Treatments take approximately 20 minutes, but the exact time will vary from patient to patient. After treatment, the skin is sometimes red for the rest of the day, but there is no actual downtime. Typically 1 to 3 treatments are needed, spaced about five weeks apart.

Chemical peels

Our medical grade chemical peels improve sun damage skin by removing the top layer of old skin. The new skin that replaces it is smoother and healthier-looking, revealing unblemished skin as healing progresses. Our skincare specialists will be able to recommend the optimal chemical peel for your exact level of sun damage. 

HALO: Dual wavelengths for dramatic results

HALO is a laser treatment designed to improve many skin conditions, including sun damage. As the first hybrid fractional laser, HALO combines two different wavelengths (micro-ablative and non-ablative) in one laser device. Both the epidermis and the dermis can be treated simultaneously, and 25% to 30% of the skin can be resurfaced. This means better results without the downtime that comes with more aggressive laser treatments.

In addition to sun damage, the HALO laser can treat:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged pores
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scarring
  • Brown spots
  • Dyschromia 

HALO treatment details

Before treatment, a topical numbing agent will be applied, and you’ll also be given protective eyewear. Once you’re properly numbed, the treatment will begin. Many patients describe the handheld device as feeling like a “roller ball” passing along the skin. There will be a hot sensation on your skin, but very tolerable. It doesn’t hurt, but we can offer cooling packs if you prefer. In addition, cooling cream will be applied after treatment to help calm your skin. HALO treatments take 1 to 2 hours, including the time it takes for the topical numbing agent to work.

Common side effects include mild swelling and redness, the sensation of a sunburn, dry/rough skin, and tiny dark spots or discoloration on the skin. These are all normal, and temporary. Most patients return to normal activities the day following treatment, and see improved skin tone and texture after only 1 or 2 treatments.
