Sun Damaged Skin & Aging? We've Got You Covered

During summer, you can enjoy outdoor activities like poolside lounging, lake visits, or basking on the beach. The problem is those rays can cause damage to your skin. Sunscreen lotion can help, but it wears off quickly or comes off with sweat or swimming. That leaves your face vulnerable to sun damage. 

Sun skin damage can also accelerate your signs of aging. You might observe an increase in freckling, deeper lines, or fine wrinkles that were not present during the spring. How do you stop these pesky skin problems? Is reversing sun damage possible?

Our expert services can treat sun-damaged skin with custom facials, intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, chemical peels, and cosmetic fillers.

How Does Sun Damage Hurt Your Skin?

The sun can cause more damage than a sunburn. Using broad-spectrum sunscreen is important because sun damage can happen even if you don’t burn your skin. Protecting your skin is crucial.

Sun Damage Spots

Brown or discolored spots or patches are signs of sun damage to the skin. Even the appearance of freckles can indicate skin damage from the sun.

Dark spots on your skin result from your skin making more melanin than usual due to the sun’s effects. Your skin develops brown spots as it deposits extra melanin. As you age, your body's ability to regulate melanin decreases, increasing brown spots, especially with frequent sun exposure.

Accelerated Aging

The sun dries out the skin, causing damage and causing the skin to contract, creating wrinkles. The more sun damage you have, the more tiny wrinkles you may appear. Sun-damaged skin on the face will also deepen the wrinkles and lines you already have. 

How do you reverse these signs of aging? The best way is to restore the moisture and healthy skin that was there before. We have several services that can do this.

How Can I Prevent Sun Damage? 

When preventing sun damage, the easiest approach is often the most obvious—limit your sun exposure. Consider using a fashionable hat or a charming umbrella to provide shade for your face if possible. Of course, we understand avoiding the sun is not always possible. Don't fret, though, because we've got some great alternative solutions to keep your skin protected and beautiful!

The second solution is to wear sunscreen with high protection and a moisturizer to keep your facial cells from drying out. Your sunscreen, at the very MINIMUM, should be SPF 30, the American Academy of Dermatology recommendation. This blocks 96% of damaging UVB rays. SPF 50 blocks 98.7-99% of UVB rays. 

Opt for a facial moisturizer with SPF 50 to protect your skin from sun damage and prevent dryness and wrinkles. Seek a quality moisturizer that keeps your skin hydrated without leaving it greasy. 

Professional Treatments to Revitalize Your Skin

If your face shows signs of sun damage, what steps can you take to address it? How do you repair sun damage effectively? Our experienced esthetician will work with you based on your unique skin needs.

Chemical Peel

Our chemical peel treatment can reduce the brown spots on your face and restore healthy skin. A chemical peel removes the sun-damaged layer of skin and reveals healthier skin. Improvement occurs in your face's tone and texture, and you'll notice a healthier feel in your skin afterward. 

Chemical peel benefits go beyond reducing brown spots, fine lines, and wrinkles and improving skin texture. They stimulate collagen, revealing a rejuvenated, radiant complexion while addressing acne scars and hyperpigmentation. Tailored to individual needs, professional peels ensure safe, effective results, boosting confidence in skin health and beauty.

After a chemical face peel, your skin will be sun-sensitive, so remember to wear sunscreen when exposed to the sun. Facial32 Dental Esthetics will provide a Post Treatment kit to care for your skin after the peel for optimum results.

Moisture-Renewing Facials

We offer a variety of facials to detoxify, moisturize, and revitalize your skin. We offer four custom facials. These facials use botanicals, acids, vitamins, and natural ingredients. The treatments aim to hydrate the skin, reduce wrinkles, and repair sun-damaged skin.

Anti-Aging Facials

Our anti-aging SWiCH and Oxygen S’mores facials offer fantastic alternatives to chemical peels. With their exfoliating properties, they remove dead cells and damaged tissue, unveiling smoother, rejuvenated skin. These treatments provide excellent options for those seeking non-peeling alternatives.

Intense Pulsed Light Treatment 

IPL treatment offers many benefits for those seeking to improve their skin's appearance. Our Lumecca treatment, with its remarkable efficiency, delivers noticeable results in just 1-3 sessions. It removes brown spots from sun damage and treats age spots, vascular lesions, spider veins, and rosacea. The specialized light therapy's versatility makes it a comprehensive solution for various skin concerns.

One of the key advantages of IPL treatment is its non-invasive nature, requiring no downtime and causing minimal discomfort. It suits various skin types and allows customization to meet individual needs. IPL enhances skin aesthetics and promotes a smoother, more even-toned complexion, leaving you with renewed confidence in your skin's radiance.
