Damage caused by the sun is usually done in our early years before the age of 20, however, this damage only begins to show up from the age of 35 onwards.
Without protection from the sun’s rays, just a few minutes of exposure each day over the years can cause noticeable changes to the skin.
Sun damaged skin is associated with a range of cosmetic concerns. Repeated ultraviolet (UV) exposure breaks down collagen and impairs the synthesis of new collagen. Sun damaged skin also causes chronic inflammation in our skin which may manifest as:
- Pigmentation problems, such as freckles and age spots
- Photo ageing resulting in fine lines and wrinkles
- A blotchy complexion with the development of spider veins on the face due to dilated bloods vessels
- Rough and leathery skin resulting in a dry texture and loss of skin tone
- Loose, sagging skin and the development volume loss in the face and under eye hollows
- Skin cancer
At Aesthetic Options, virtually any patient can be a candidate for improving sun damaged skin, depending on the area and their skin type. As each patient’s skin is uniquely different; we will tailor a treatment program specifically for you and your circumstances. Our highly professional team led by a medical doctor will assess your concerns and will recommend an appropriate combination treatment together with long term maintenance program to ensure optimal results.
The preferred method to treat sun damaged skin today is to start with photo rejuvenation procedures early so as to prevent the deterioration of skin colour and texture as we get older. If we can treat sun damaged skin at an earlier age and stimulate the growth of new collagen, we might actually slow down the ageing process significantly. This allows us to have healthier, better-looking skin later on in life. Some of our therapies to treat sun damaged skin include:
