Myth: Sun damage is irreversible.
Remember all those years you spent in the sun? Those sun-kissed trips to Hawaii? Those long afternoons baking on the Jersey shore? As you probably know by now, the sun can most definitely leave its mark.
What you might not be aware of is how all that sun damage can accumulate, sometimes developing into something much worse long after your tan has faded. That’s the bad news. The good news? Sun damage IS reversible! But let’s talk a bit more about excessive sun exposure first.
Too Much of a Good Thing
Sun exposure causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging. Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching. Pretty bad, right? But it gets worse. The skin also bruises and tears more easily, taking longer to heal. So while sun damage to the skin may not be apparent when you’re young, it will definitely show later in life. By reducing your daily sun exposure, sunscreen allows your skin time to heal and your immune system the chance to repair existing damage.
Don’t despair. The good news is that if you do have sun damage, it can be reversed. One thing you can do right now to protect yourself from future sun damage is to use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Sunscreen is one of the keys to radiant, youthful-looking skin. Daily use may even lower your long-term risk of skin cancer. By reducing your daily sun exposure, sunscreen allows your skin time to heal and your immune system the chance to repair existing damage.
There are also two medspa treatments that can reverse the visible signs of sun damage.
Clear + Brilliant
Clear + Brilliant fights the effects of sun damage and aging, leaving skin with a more youthful appearance. But this cutting-edge skincare technology works even greater magic. It can reverse the early signs of aging, reduce pore size, give skin a youthful glow, improve skin tone and texture, and correct pigment problems.
How does it manage to do all this? Clear + Brilliant’s non-invasive laser technology gently resurfaces the top layer of the dermis by creating millions of microscopic treatment zones in the skin. It’s really just about replacing damaged skin with healthy, younger-looking tissue.
Clear + Brilliant is clinically proven to significantly reverse early signs of aging and sun damage. Almost all patients who undergo Clear + Brilliant treatments report their skin looks younger and feels smoother. What’s more, their skin achieves a noticeable glow after a series of three to five Clear + Brilliant treatments.
IPL Photo Facials
IPL photo facials use gentle pulses of light to beautify sun-damaged and aged skin, as well as reduce redness and flushing. IPL photo facials offer clients a more youthful appearance. What’s more, this innovative treatment reduces age lines, stimulates collagen growth, removes age spots and corrects uneven pigmentation, smooths and refines the skin’s complexion, and reverses sun damage.
IPL photo facials work by using a broad-spectrum light source that penetrates multiple layers of skin. This type of photo facial primarily targets the lower layers of skin (dermis) while leaving the top layers of skin (epidermis) unaffected. The heat generated from the light promotes healing of the skin within, treating a number of different dermatological issues like sun damage.
