Get your sun damaged skin treated using laser technology

Posted on 17 Dec, 2009

Direct exposure to sunlight can have a damaging effect on your skin. Some of the known skin damage issues are premature skin ageing, skin cancer, burns and more. Almost 90% of skin ageing problems are due to overexposure to ultraviolet light, UVB or UVA rays.

Change in skin texture and colour are a couple of the effects of UV elements present in sun rays. Many people go sunbathing without the proper protection of sunscreens and lotions. They commonly come across skin wrinkling, thickening of the skin at the back of the neck, skin tearing and coarse bruising around arms and back of hands. The colour of the skin is also affected and resultants are brown and greenish pigments, these are commonly known as solar lentigos.

Acquiring moles from birth is normal. They are a more common occurrence in areas exposed to only a little direct sun. Mole formation is initiated by sunlight. If they are present in abnormal shape and size in sun-exposed areas, then it is a possible indication of a type of skin cancer known as Melanoma.

In the last few years, laser technology has provided various solutions for skin damage from the sun. They are the safest way to get rid of skin problems as they do not damage the surrounding skin tissue. The skin damage is usually much deeper than the epidermis, or the top layer of the skin.

Many beauty and anti-ageing creams claim the cure but most of them do not have enough penetration in the skin. The laser has high penetration power to reach those tissues without disturbing the healthy skin.
