Seattle residents expect to have more rainy days than sunny ones. For that reason, when the sun is shining and the weather is nice, Seattle residents enjoy taking advantage of it. This is especially the case for children and young adults who want to spend as much time in the sun as possible. While having limited sun exposure can be healthy for the skin, when a person is over exposed to the sun, they risk showing unattractive signs of premature aging, such as wrinkles, skin discoloration, and sunspots.
Dr. Katherine Dee has successfully worked with many Seattle residents at her Glow MediSpa. One of the treatments that she has been able to use to help her patients drastically improve the appearance of sunspots is Thermo-Lo. One of the reasons Katherine Dee MD uses Thermo-Lo on her patients is because it has the unique feature of only affecting the top layer of the skin, which is the epidermis. The remaining dermal layers are left unaffected.
By using Thermo-Lo at her Seattle Glow MediSpa, Dr. Katherine Dee is able to protect her clients from the temporary, or sometimes permanent, damage to the skin that other pulse light treatments that do penetrate the epidermis and the dermis can cause.
The Thermo-Lo procedure is designed to be precise. When Katherine Dee MD uses it on her patients, she is able to target the exact area that needs to be treated. Other light therapies cannot be focused on small sunspots without hitting or affecting areas that do not require treatment.
As with any precision tool, the results they provide depend as much on the user as on the quality of the tool itself. Patients who have visited Dr. Katherine Dee and her Seattle Glow MediSpa receive a superior treatment because Katherine Dee MD has an aesthetic background in addition to her medical background. This allows her to understand the medical processes behind sunspot removal, while at the same time knowing what results her patients are going to need in order to walk out of the procedure looking and feeling their best.
During the Thermo-Lo procedure, patients will feel a slight warming sensation. Depending on how well they tolerate pain, Katherine Dee MD may use an over-the-counter topical anesthetic to desensitize the area. Her goal is the same as any good medical professional. She wants to provide her clients with the best medical care available and keep them as comfortable as possible during the procedure.
One thing to remember about the Thermo–Lo procedure is that since it does not penetrate the deeper layers of skin, but instead just touches the epidermis in the area that is being treated, the downtime for the procedure is very minimal. When the procedure is performed by a respected doctor like Dr. Katherine Dee, the results can be permanent.
It is understandable that Seattle residents want to enjoy the sun as much as they possibly can. However, when overexposure leads to unsightly sunspots, they know that they can turn to the Seattle-based Glow MediSpa and Katherine Dee MD to get their skin looking its best once again.
