Reversing Your Skin’s Sun Damage

Did you know you are at risk of skin damage every time you go out in the sun? From every trip to the beach to every walk in the park, the sun leaves an imprint on your skin. If exposure to the sun happens often enough, soon, you will leave lasting evidence on your skin — marks that show where skin damage has occurred.

Fortunately, there are ways that you can reverse many kinds of blemish brought on by excessive exposure to the sun. These simple medical procedures can even lower your risk of skin cancer. If your skin shows blotches and blemishes, it could be time to consider a procedure for better skin health and looks.

Intense pulsed light treatment

IPL treatment helps take care of the red spots and hyperpigmentation that appear when you stay out in the sun for a prolonged period of time. From treating visibly dilated blood vessels to spots, IPL treatment helps make your skin appear smoother and more even. Treatment of this kind can even help the health of your skin by stimulating the production of elastin and collagen. Your skin won’t just look firmer, it will actually turn that way. IPL is formally known as BroadBand Light Sciton® (BBL™ )

IPL treatment can take 3 to 5 visits to complete but has no downtime. The redness of the skin after the treatment may last for a few hours after the treatment, sometimes longer, but is an expected response to the treatment. At the end of each treatment session, you can simply walk out and get on with your life.

Microneedling treatment

Microneedling uses a derma roller to gently insert fine short needles into your skin in order to rejuvenate it. The idea is that skin is stimulated in such a way to produce more collagen for a smoother, youthful look and minimize the appearance of scars. It is mostly used around the face to treat enlarged pores, wrinkles, marks, and of course scars.

Microneedling also has no downtime and there could be mild inflammation. When choosing Microneedling as your treatment of choice, allow time for a full recovery of your skin cells, between sessions. Microneedling too often can lead to broken capillaries be sure to check with your doctor about his/her suggested intervals of treatments.
