Erasing Sun Damage
Posted June 18, 2018 in Sun Damage Treatments
For many people, there’s nothing better than achieving a dark and even suntan during the hot summer months. While the deep summer glow may seem appealing at the time, all those rays of sunlight are actually wreaking havoc on your skin.
Sun damage is something everyone grows up hearing about, yet many choose not to take the risk seriously. As a result, many people develop age spots, wrinkles, and an overall change in skin texture. Fortunately, with the improvement of cosmetic laser technology, there are now several options that can safely and effectively target sun-damaged skin.
What Causes Sun Damage?
While the sun is not entirely bad for you (vitamin D is vital to physical health), the majority of what happens to your body after significant sun exposure is not pretty.
The horrible sunburn you got spending the weekend at the pool may peel and heal after a few days, but the damage to your skin remains and is likely to re-emerge via discolored and aged skin. Sun damage, as well as large amounts of facial aging, is caused by prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light. This light breaks down skin cells, causing them to age at a quicker rate than healthy cells would. Over time, this can add years of aging to your appearance.
What Are My Treatment Options?
The DeepFX™ laser treatment addresses sun-damaged and wrinkled skin with a fractional CO2 laser that works deep in the skin to stimulate collagen and tissue growth. Following the DeepFX™ treatment, the ActiveFX™ high-energy CO2 laser ablates the top layer of skin, allowing for a new, healthy layer of tissue to grow. This laser offers relief from sun damage on the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms—the most common areas of sun damage.
