Everyone has some type of sun damage to their skin. You should really wear sunblock every time you walk outdoors, but few people follow through on that principle. In fact, most people only think of sunscreen when they are going swimming, hiking, or otherwise spending large amounts of time outdoors.
In truth, the sun can damage your skin at any time, with any amount of exposure. While most cars are built with windshields that have UV protection, your side windows may not have any protection against the harmful rays of the sun.
Sun damage can build up over time, making you look older and more drawn. Here are three treatments that can decrease the effects of sun damage when added to your regular skincare routine.
In microneedling, a device with tiny needles is applied to the face. The needles make tiny holes in the skin, which are not painful or even bleed, but are just large enough to stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes. This prompts the body to produce more collagen and elastin in the skin, which is what gives it a radiant glow.
Laser Genesis is a newer laser treatment that is designed to reduce the discoloration and other problems that sun damage can create on the skin. Laser Genesis can be combined with a microneedling treatment and application of a dermal filler or topical treatment. The entire package, which we call the Triple Threat, is a great option for many women.
If you want to go with more traditional treatment, we offer several different chemical peels for you to choose from. The best chemical peel we offer for correcting the discoloration and dry patches associated with sun damage is the VI chemical peel. This peel has been used for decades, and it is still in use today because it is extremely effective.
