The sun is a cruel mistress; the more you worship her the more she punishes you. Hours basking and baking in the summer sun can leave you with skin damage like freckles, brown spots, wrinkles and even pre-cancerous and cancerous skin lesions.
Don’t take chances
Using sunscreen on a routine basis can help to prevent most sun damage. Apply it before you go outside and apply it numerous times during the day. Use a high-quality, waterproof sunscreen with a SPF number of 15 or above.
Wear a brimmed hat at the beach, golf course or picnic area. Physical sun barriers like hats and special UV-protection clothing also help you avoid skin damage from the sun’s rays.
Hope for damaged skin
Don’t wait until your skin is so damaged from the sun, that reversal or rejuvenation treatments may take twice as long to bring back a youthful, soft, spot-free complexion. When the smell of autumn is in the air, it’s time to see your skin specialist for an evaluation and recommendation on what treatments will help you erase the effects of end-of-summer skin.
One of the options you have to treat sun-damaged skin is a Laserfacial. In simple terms, a Laserfacial aims a beam of light on the area of your skin that shows visible sun damage. The Laserfacial specialist focuses this beam of light on the areas of your skin that have wrinkles, freckles, brown spots, dryness and enlarged blood vessels.
With virtually no recovery time needed after your Laserfacial treatment, this procedure can be done on your lunch hour in some cases. Laserfacials are safe for all skin types and skin colors. They help identity and delete the appearance of sun-damaged skin.
Hyperpigmentation and dyschromia are common skin conditions that may occur to sun-damaged skin. Hyperpigmentation causes brown spots that may appear as specks as a tiny as a freckle up to large areas of skin that look stained a dark brown.
Dyschromia is a condition where areas of your skin lose their natural color and turn extremely pale. Photofacials help to eliminate both conditions and combat the signs of premature aging associated with sun damage like wrinkles, uneven skin tone and changes in skin texture for a more healthy, youthful-looking appearance.
