Sun Damage

The term ‘sun damage’ is usually used to refer to major changes to the skin’s characteristics brought about by prolonged unprotected exposure to UV radiation. Typical symptoms are weak underlying structures that causes mottling, ‘pebbling’ crepe-like or thinning of skin, roughness, dryness, inflammation and hyperpigmentation.

Treatment

Sun avoidance is crucial to avoiding sun damage. When sun exposure is unavoidable, regular application of a high SPF (more than SPF30) sunscreen will provide protection against UV radiation.For existing sun damage, treatments are available to help restore skin’s vitality and function.

The three major treatment options available include:

  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) has proven extremely beneficial for sun damage.
  • Topical Therapy – daily use of vitamins A, B3 & C, alpha-hydroxy acids and moisturisers.
  • Facial peels can also have a rejuvenating effect.
