SUN DAMAGED SKIN
WHAT IS IT?
Most of us are guilty of being sun lovers, we can’t help loving the warming sensation it creates on our skin and the healthy look a tan gives us. If only we all knew what damage excessive sun exposure can give us! In the long run, a sun damaged skin does not look healthy at all.
In the long run, sun exposure can alter the structure and function of your skin cells, which can cause skin cancer. Excessive sun exposure can also dry out the skin, cause pigmentation and give the skin a wrinkled, leathery appearance. Collagen and elastin fibers also get broken by the sun’s UV rays, which leads to premature ageing of the skin.
It is fairly easy to recognize a sun damaged skin. It will appear dry, dehydrated, not even in skin tone and have fine lines and wrinkles.
Lamelle Pigmentation Chemical Peel – Within the variety of chemical peels offered by Lamelle, the Beta Peel will be the best to treat your sun damaged skin. There is a 15% and a 20% peel, each with 2 layers, but the therapists at Glo will determine which one you should have. This treatment can be done every 2-6 weeks in order to lighten dark or reddish brown marks.
FormaTk’s Skin Rejuvenation & Pigmentation – This treatment can treat sun damaged skin by effectively drawing the discolouration to the surface of the skin, allowing the dermis to begin the healing process of correcting the blemishes over time.
