WHAT IS SUN DAMAGE?
Sun damage describes premature aging of the skin due to overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. This condition hurts your skin’s ability to maintain essential antioxidants, hyaluronic acid content, and vitamins. All of these components normally keep our skin looking youthful and healthy. When these compounds are compromised, brown and age spots tend to become more prevalent.
WHAT ARE SOME TREATMENTS FOR UV DAMAGE?
- Microneedling: Microneedling may reverse sun damage and pigmentation. To improve extra pigmentation from sun-damaged skin, after a topical anesthetic is applied, a pen-like tool called a derma roller is used to insert tiny stainless steel needles into the skin to cause micro-injuries or punctures. The damage caused by the needles encourages your body to send healing agents (elastin and collagen) to the cuts to repair them.
- Chemical Peels: Chemical peels can improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin by using a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin. The new skin that emerges is smoother and less wrinkled in appearance.
