A natural sun tanned face makes us look healthy and glowing. And a bit of warmth on our faces simply makes us feel good so it seems unfair to know that the sun can actually damage our skin and too much sun can badly damage skin tissue.
The effects of sun exposure on your skin can be ageing and at worst, devastating.
While some of the damage is merely cosmetic, it can of course be more serious and any concerns should be raised as early as possible to ensure quick treatment.
Sun damage accumulates slowly over time, so for many of us, it is risking a lower sun factor protection in our youth or popping out without sunblock early or late season that contributes to sun damage.” /]
Signs of Sun Damage:
Premature ageing (lines, wrinkles, loose skin, sagging) – caused by elastosis, the break down of elastic tissue within the skin
Melasma (also known as chloasma or pregnancy mask)
Pre-cancerous and cancerous cell carcinoma and melanoma, caused by loss of the skin’s immune function
Sallowness (yellow pigmentation)
Facial veins/thread veins/spider veins
Dry skin, poor complexion
Rough or “weathered” skin texture”
TREATMENT FOR SUN DAMAGE
The good news is, modern aesthetic medicine offers a number of treatments which can help to treat and improve even the most sun-damaged skin.
Treatments to Heal and Improve the Skin
Dermaroller micro-needling, to boost the skin’s own regeneration, promoting collagen production for smoother, tighter skin; while also tackling pigmentation.
Skin peels, for intensive exfoliation, erasing fine lines and stimulating the skin’s regeneration.
IPL laser treatment for facial veins and skin tightening.
Obagi NuDerm System® – medically supervised skincare to tackle sun damage.
Facial vein treatment either via laser or injection.
Treatments to Tackle Lines and Wrinkles:
Botox anti-wrinkle injections, to soften lines and creases.
Fillers to gently plump out deeper wrinkles and lines.
MEDICAL GRADE PEELS
Our advanced Inner peel Skin Peels work deep in the lower layers of the skin, erasing the unwanted areas of pigmentation caused by sun exposure to reveal a clear complexion. During treatment you might feel a slight burning sensation, a bit like sunburn. But with our soothing pre and post-application creams, any discomfort is minimised. Results can be seen after three to five treatments.
