As days begin to get warmer and longer, you and your family will be spending more time outside. Kids on bikes and in the pools, adults and families working in gardens, or simply spending time playing outdoors together.
The fresh air invigorates you, and the sunshine embraces your pallid, vitamin-D depleted skin. The change of pace is welcome after a winter spent inside.
But what happens to your skin after you start to spend more time outside? The sun’s rays can be harmful, not just burning, but causing microscopic damage that is not easily repaired.
Over time, lengthy exposure to sun builds up, aging your face, neck, décolletage, and anywhere else that has been exposed. The obvious answer to this is to wear sunscreen and hats to stay in the shade, but what about the damage that’s already been done?
If you need to reverse the effects of sun damage from years spent outside with no protection, we recommend two special procedures:
- Chemical Peels:The K-Spa offers several different chemical peels for photo-damage, including Neo-Peel and the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance. Peels break down the structures that hold surface skin cells together, providing a gentle exfoliative effect and revealing new, undamaged skin underneath. We recommend four to six monthly treatments for optimal results.
- Intense Pulsed Light: Using the Cutera Limelight laser, we are able to erase hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage. This therapy is one of the most effective ways to reverse the devastating effects of years spent in the sun.
While neither treatment is a solution to melanomas- the ultimate sun damage- either can help you look and feel younger. Make your appointment at the K-Spa Today!
