Few things are lovelier than taking in the sun’s warm rays after a long winter. While sunbathing is certainly delightful, it’s essential not to neglect your skin’s health by protecting it from damaging UV exposure.
Sun damage can cause premature aging, hyperpigmentation, loss of skin elasticity, worsening melasma and other skin health concerns. At BodyLase®, we offer targeted treatments to help you reduce and eliminate sun damage and rejuvenate skin health.
Common Signs of Sun Damage
If your skin has sun damage, you may notice:
Sunspots, age spots, and liver spots are all forms of hyperpigmentation of discolored skin patches caused by repeated, unprotected sun exposure. Our BodyLase professionals offer Fraxel® laser skin resurfacing as a treatment option to reduce brown spots and melasma while encouraging healthy, even-toned skin. Fraxel is safe and extremely effective for all skin types and tones.
For targeted and stubborn brown spot treatment BodyLase offers IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacials which use wavelengths of light to heat pigmented cells and destroy them.
IPL can fix unwanted skin pigment conditions or vein changes. The light waves pass through the top layer of skin (epidermis) to the targeted lesion, either pigmented or vascular.
Rough Skin Texture
When you experience repeated sun damage, especially sunburns, your skin texture may turn rougher or leathery. Fraxel helps eliminate these patches of roughened skin by encouraging new skin to grow and stimulating collagen production. Chemical peels are also an excellent treatment option for sun damage because they exfoliate the outer layers of skin to reveal fresh, healthy skin underneath.
Before and After Photos
When exposed to harmful sun rays, your skin becomes damaged by an abundance of free radicals, which leads to a loss of vitamin E and collagen. All of these factors combined result in sagging skin and wrinkles. Fraxel and Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatments are both great treatments to stimulate new collagen production and restore the firmness of your skin.
Consider adding serums containing growth factors and Vitamin C to your skincare routine. Growth factors will restore youthful glow and texture, and Vitamin C serums can protect you from future sun damage and free radicals while strengthening your skin.
