HOW TO ERASE SUMMER SUN DAMAGE

As much fun as summer can be, the sun and heat can wreak havoc on your skin. Sun exposure can cause wrinkles, sunspots, and dry skin, as well as many serious health conditions.
The best way to protect yourself from sun damage is to apply sunscreen, SPF 45 or higher, multiple times over the course of the day, wear hats, sunglasses, and cover-ups, and limit sun exposure. The sun can also dry out your skin, so it’s important to drink lots of water to stay hydrated.

It’s best to take precautions with sun exposure and avoid overexposure whenever possible, but there are treatments to reduce the signs of sun damage after a long summer. Treatments like chemicals peels, dermal fillers, and injectables like Botox can all reduce the damage caused by overexposure to sunlight, as well as improving the overall tone, texture, and appearance of skin.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels exfoliate the skin, which reduces sun spots, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and fine lines caused by sun exposure. By removing the top layer of dead and damaged skin, you reveal the fresh, youthful skin beneath. Most people see improvements after just one treatment, but best results are often seen after a few sessions.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion uses chemical solution and microcrystals to exfoliate the outer layer of skin, as well as stimulating collagen production and new elastin fibers. Microdermabrasion is particularly useful for removing sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines brought on by overexposure to sunlight, as well as reducing acne and acne scars. Results are typically seen after a few treatments, though you can repeat the treatments as often as two or three times every two weeks until you achieve your desired results.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane, or Perlane, are injectable, hyaluronic acid treatments that soften creases, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and can even improve scarring. These non-invasive treatments are helpful for correcting the damaging effects of sun exposure, and the results typically last between six months and one year. In addition, dermal fillers can also plump lips and enhance contours to restore a more youthful appearance.

Botox

As one of the most popular medical spa treatments, Botox is effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet, and may even help prevent future wrinkles from forming. Botox is a virtually-painless, non-invasive procedure that works by relaxing the muscles in the face, which smooths the surface and removes wrinkles. Full results are seen within a few days, and last for roughly three months.
