Sun damage can occur due to prolonged or excessive exposure to harmful UV rays, either from the sun, or from tanning beds, sun lamps, or tanning lamps. This damage can cause wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, sunspots, dark patches of skin, and freckles. A medical spa near you can provide a number of safe and effective treatment methods that will reverse or reduce sun damage. Keep reading to learn about some of these treatment options.
Chemical peels burn off the top layers of your skin. Depending upon your level of sun damage, you can opt for a superficial, medium, or deep chemical peel. After the procedure, your skin peels off, allowing new, healthy skin to grow in its place. A deep chemical peel requires more healing time but is very successful at eliminating age spots, sunspots, wrinkles, and blemishes.
Dermal Fillers and Facials
Dermal fillers are available in a variety of brands and forms, including Juvederm XC, Restylane, and Radiesse. Dermal fillers can reduce the volume loss that may occur as a result of too much sun exposure. They can also reduce and eliminate mild to moderate wrinkles. The results of a dermal filler procedure can last between one and two years. Facials, including diamond medical dermabrasion treatments, exfoliate and hydrate the skin. This causes your skin to look younger and more rejuvenated.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing uses a small, hand-held laser to remove thin layers of sun-damaged skin. The laser produces heat, which penetrates the skin gently while leaving the surrounding tissues undamaged. Laser skin resurfacing is a very safe, effective way to treat fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and freckles.
