Sun Damage

Do you remember summers spent on secluded beaches or running carefree through fields as a child? Did you ever get sunburn that resulted in blisters? The fact is that sun damage does not go away. As we grow older, it becomes more pronounced and age spots or pigmentation begin to appear on the face, hands and neck.

The sun is the single most aging and damaging enemy of your skin. If you have spent any part of your life avoiding the use of high SPFs, then it is likely that you have developed sun damage. This resides in the upper dermal layer of your skin. If you have sun damage you may notice the following:

  • Pigmentation of the face
  • Freckles
  • Course skin
  • Open pores
  • Loss of elasticity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Make up looks oily as it gathers on the dead skin caused by sun damage
  • Skin appears dull and lifeless especially in winter

At the Good Skin Clinic at Dublin Vitality Centre Grafton Street, we offer IPL Laser for pigmentation and sun damage. Consider undergoing a course of photo facial treatments. IPL is not the same as regular laser. Lasers only used one wavelength and are often limited to achieving limited results or can only treat one skin problem but IPL is a broad-spectrum laser and can actually achieve a number of benefits all at once.

IPL Laser can reduce pigmentation and sun damage.

This means that if you undergo IPL Laser for anti-aging or sun damage, you will benefit from the fact that new collagen production and anti-redness may also occur.

If you have been using sunbed regularly, its time to stop before skin becomes irreparably damaged. UVA / UVB rays go right through the skin causing aging effects to be accelerated. Looking old before your time is a not worth having a time. Beautiful skin is so much more attractive.

So next time your take a sun holiday, be sure to pack your most essential skin saving item – high sun production factor such as factor 50.
