The UV rays of the sun can lead to the premature aging of the skin, but can sun damage be reversed? Is it possible to turn back the clock and remove the age spots, wrinkles, fine lines, and rough texture caused by too much sun exposure? Let’s take a look at the basic issues.
Treatments that can help reverse sun damage
Intense pulsed light(IPL)is anon-ablative technology that emits various wavelengths of light. The heat energy targets specific skin problems and can dramatically improve the appearance of sun damaged skin. IPL can be effectively used to smooth the skin, and correct skin issues such as age spots, freckles, and redness.
IPL also stimulates collagen formation, and this regenerates new, healthy tissues. It typically takes a series of 3-5 treatments for best results, and there is no downtime.
PCA and TCA peelscan also fix sun damage. Peels eliminate fine lines andskin discoloration, as they exfoliate the outer damaged skin and enhance cell turnover. This improves skin texture, and makes the complexion lighter, smoother, and brighter. The choice and frequency of the peel will depend on your skin type, as well as the degree of sun damage.
These treatments are designed to renew and rejuvenate the skin,so that it looks younger and refreshed. Adequate sun protection is important after treatment;therefore clients are advised to use a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects against both the UVA and UVB rays of the sun.
