Repair sun damaged skin to look younger

Posted on 06 Oct, 2011

As we have all been enjoying the exceptionally warm weather over the last few days, with temperatures reaching 30°, people across the country have been out trying to catch what must be the last rays of the year.

When the weather is unexpectedly warm, people try to take advantage of their last opportunity to do a bit of sunbathing; however, it is important to remember that the sun can cause serious skin damage, even if it is October!

When the skin is exposed to sunlight without adequate protection, the ageing process is accelerated, resulting in wrinkles and fine lines. As collagen production is affected, the skin can start to sag, and pigmented spots can also begin to appear.

Once this process has been set in motion, it can be difficult to improve the appearance of the skin, and to camouflage the effects of sun damage. Thankfully, there are two types of sun damaged skin treatment that can help to improve how the skin looks:

Photo rejuvenation treatment can eliminate those superficial signs of ageing such as rosacea, fine lines, pigmented spots and enlarged pores. Non-invasive and fast, it is a highly effective way to combat sun damage.

• Microdermabrasion and laser treatment works by removing the damaged superficial layers of skin and encouraging regrowth.
