We all know we are supposed to protect our skin from sunburn, but did you know that even tan is indicative of damage to the skin? Changing colour is the body’s response to exposure to harmful UV rays, so if you have a tan, your skin has been damaged to some degree.

While having a healthy glow can make you feel more youthful and attractive, it will inevitably have an ageing effect on your skin. As the skin loses elasticity lines and wrinkles can develop, making you look older. As you age, your skin becomes less able to regenerate and more vulnerable to sun damage.

Luckily, advances in skin treatments can provide a solution. Laser treatment is safe and non-invasive and can be used anywhere on the body: face, neck, décolleté and hands. One type of sun-damaged skin treatment is Advanced Intense Pulsed Light, which can be used to eliminate those superficial signs of ageing.

Sun damage can manifest itself as liver spots, thread veins, enlarged pores or lines. Advanced Intense Pulsed Light treatment can remove these and stimulate new skin growth and collagen production. The result is smoother, clearer and more youthful-looking skin you’ll want to protect.
