Most Common Causes of Sun Damage
Age spots are common on all areas of the body, but they are particularly common on the face. If you think about it, this makes sense because the face is the part of the body that is almost never covered with clothing (unless you count a mask). Most people start noticing these issues as early as their mid-twenties to early thirties. The most serious signs of sun damage are new or changing moles, growths, or lesions. This can be an indication of skin cancer, so it is important to see a dermatologist immediately if you notice them. However, it is also possible that your sun damage is purely cosmetic. At Novopelle Med Spa, we are here to help you feel like your most beautiful selves, and if this includes helping free yourself of sun damage, we are here to do that. Some of the best treatments for freeing yourself of sun damage include:
Retinoids work by encouraging cell turnover and increasing collagen production, which helps damaged skin cells on a healthier course. Retinoids will also stimulate collagen production, lighten brown spots, and lessen the size of pores.
- Vitamin C and other antioxidants
Vitamin C has anti-aging and brightening effects, and it also helps protect against sun damage.
Exfoliants are also a great way to repair sun damage. This method can remove those dead skin cells and stimulate healthier cells, collagen production, and eliminating sun-damage hyperpigmentation.
- Lightening agents
Whitening or brightening cosmetics contain hydroquinone, which has skin-lightening properties. These can lighten spots and help your face appear refreshed and rejuvenated.
- Laser therapy
Laser therapy is a medical treatment that focuses light to stimulate photobiomodulation. Photobiomodulation utilizes non-ionizing light sources, including lasers, light-emitting diodes, and broadband light.
- Chemical peels
Chemical peels will improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin by using a chemical solution to free the skin of an outer layer of old skin. The new skin that replaces it is usually smoother and less wrinkled.
- Ablative lasers
An ablative laser is a wounding laser that removes the thin outer layer of skin and heals the underlying skin. This stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers.
Dermabrasion is a procedure that removes sun-damaged skin through controlled scraping. The procedure is minimally invasive with low recovery time, so it is a great option for those who want to heal sun damage in a simple way.
