Smooth Away Sun Damage with JOULE™

Whether you simply weren’t committed to wearing sunscreen in your youth or you purposefully tanned as a young adult, you’re paying the price for your sun-loving years. Damaged by UV rays, your skin is fraught with wrinkles, dark spots, and a dullness that makes you look older than you are. Fortunately, there’s a way to turn back the clock. With the JOULE laser system, you can once again have smooth, radiant skin.

How Does JOULE™ Laser Treatment Fix Sun Damage?

The JOULE laser system can remove years of sun damage from even the most delicate areas, including the face, neck and chest. The system uses concentrated light beams to heat and remove the top layer of skin while stimulating deeper layers to produce healing collagen. With the highly precise laser, J. Ryan Rice, MD, FACS, treats lines and discoloration in areas that were previously off limits to laser treatment, such as around the eyes. And built-in cooling technology regulates the skin temperature, making for a safer, more comfortable experience.

What to Expect with JOULE™ Laser Skin Treatment

Dr. Rice performs laser treatments to correct sun damage in the Penn Highlands Plastic,
Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery office in DuBois. The laser treatment takes about 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Most patients need only one treatment, although some patients may require more.

After laser therapy, you can return home to rest and will need to avoid direct sunlight while your skin heals, usually within three to four days. Most patients return to their regular activities soon after treatment. So, what are you waiting for? Put the mistakes you made in your youth behind you, and start looking your age again!

Don’t let sun damage age you prematurely. Contact Penn Highlands Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery in DuBois to find out if you are a good candidate for sun damage correction with JOULE.
