Sun damage can lead to brown spots, redness or flushing, uneven skin tone, and impaired skin texture. Depending on the extent of damage and the skin type, various options for treatment are available.
The majority of the skin conditions we treat at Glow Medi Spa are related to sun damage. Sun damage can present in many ways such as: brown spots, pigmentation, redness, uneven skin tone, roughened skin texture, lines and wrinkles, saggy skin, aging skin, skin lesions or skin cancer.
At Glow Medi Spa, we have a wide variety of treatments available to treat sun damage. However, we still feel that it is crucial to take the necessary steps to prevent the problem. It is also important to maintain the results after the treatments. Clients should be seen by a physician for any skin lesions related to sun damage to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment.
Treatments for Sun Damaged Skin
The most common treatment for sun damage is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photorejuvenation since it addresses brown spots, redness, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles, and also stimulates collagen as well. It involves no down-time and is considered a “lunch time” treatment. The most common areas to treat with IPL are the face, neck, chest and hands but IPL can be used anywhere on the body.
For saggy skin on the face and neck, the Maximus TriPolar Treatment uses Radio-Frequency to tighten and tone the skin. For crepey skin on the neck, our clients have enjoyed the benefits of Laser Photorejuvenation.
For superficial, early changes to the skin such as dry, dull skin with loss of smoothness and glow to the skin, there are various skin treatments and products that can improve the quality of the skin and help prevent further deterioration.
