Sun Damage

What It Is

Most of the aging signs can be attributed to sun exposure to the harmful UV rays. Prolonged sun exposure can lead to uneven skin pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and sun spots to name a few. Luckily, some of the damage caused by the sun can be reversed with the help of various skin care treatments.

How It’s Treated

Laser Treatments

  • CO2 Laser – The CO2 laser works by heating up, destroying and vaporizing the outermost layers of the skin that have been damaged by the UV rays. This process promotes the healthy production of collagen in the skin to smooth out the appearance of the complexion.

  • Fractionated Laser – The Fractionated Laser is one of the only lasers that has a minimal downtime associated with it. It works to stimulate the production of new collagen by rebuilding your skin deep in the pores.

Non-Laser Treatments

  • AFA Clay Peel – The AFA Clay Peel is a two-step, non-surgical procedure that will immediately create smoother, softer and younger-looking skin. It is effective in the treatment of aging skin, sun damage, uneven texture, and pigmented irregularities.

  • Jessner’s Peel – The Jessner’s Peel is an anti-aging peel designed to dramatically improve skin elasticity and tone. It reverses fine lines and wrinkles, pigment irregularities and mild scarring.

  • Mandelic Acid Peel – This chemical peel lightens pigmentation as the result of sun damage, acne, scarring, melasma and photo damaged skin. The peel is safe, gentle and well tolerated by most skin types.

  • Retinol Peel – The Retinol Peel uses natural Vitamin A to exfoliate the skin. This will help with overall facial rejuvenation and lighten sun damage and uneven pigmentation on the skin, such as acne scars.

  • Obagi Blue Peel – The Blue Peel is a medium strength chemical peel used to enhance the texture of the skin while diminishing the appearance of fine lines, age spots, and other types of skin discolorations, including sun damage. One of the primary benefits of the Obagi Blue Peel over other types of peels is that the strength of the formula can be adjusted depending on your needs.

  • TCA Peel – Trichloroacetic Acid is a medium strength chemical agent applied to the face or hands to exfoliate and renew the skin in the treated area. TCA works well for treating darker skin types and has the ability to correct pigmentation, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and for the removal of superficial blemishes.
