Sun Damaged Skin

Sun damaged skin is a very common concern among the medical aesthetic community. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a carcinogen known to cause free radical damage which breaks down the collagen and elastin fibres in our skin, leading to the appearance of looser and more tired skin. UV exposure also contributes to the overproduction of melanin, leading to pigmented lesions (liver spots), freckles, redness, broken capillaries, uneven skin tone, and in extreme cases, skin cancer. Many skin conditions are like rosacea and sensitivity are exacerbated by excessive sun exposure. It can take decades for these conditions to become visible on the skin, so treatment for their reversal requires patience and routine use of active ingredients, paired with daily sunscreen use.

Sunscreens should preferably include zinc oxide or titanium dioxide which are minerals that treat inflammation and reduce flushing.

At Dermis Advanced Skin Care, we offer a wide variety of treatments available to treat sun damage. These treatments include laser, chemical peels, medical grade facials. It is also important to maintain the results after the treatments with proper home maintenance. Clients should be seen by a physician for any suspicious looking skin lesions related to sun damage to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment.
