Do you spend a lot of time outside in the sun? Do you intend to wear sunscreen regularly but often forget, finding new spots and patches on your skin? That's sun damage, and sun damage leads to premature aging. So how do you brighten skin and reduce the signs of sun damage effectively? Many treatments and products promise results, so it's important to do your research and trust your care to a skin rejuvenation expert like those here at New Jersey Plastic Surgery in Montclair, NJ.
In this article, we will discuss the different professional skin rejuvenation treatments that are available to help brighten your skin, correct sun damage, and help you look younger. We'll also talk about how to get the most out of these treatments by following an at-home, professional-grade skincare routine.
But first, let's talk about what happens to your skin when you have sun damage.
UV rays are the primary culprit of skin damage. They cause premature aging, sunburns, and even skin cancer. It's important to protect your skin from the sun by using sunscreen and other protective measures whenever you're outside, even on cloudy days.
Yes, even on cloudy days, harmful UVA rays (the aging rays) can penetrate cloud cover and cause sun damage to your skin. This is why it's important to invest in a high-quality sunscreen and apply it every single day, reapplying every 60-80 minutes.
But even if you take all the precautions, it's still possible to suffer from UV-related damage. That's why it's important to know how to identify and treat sun damage effectively.
If you have any darkening of your skin, that's sun damage. Yes, even your "base tan" is sun damage; there's no such thing as a "safe" tan. If you want to look bronzed, a spray tan is the only safe solution.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's look at other ways that sun damage manifests on the skin:
Hyperpigmentation (discolored patches on the skin) and dark spots or freckles are a result of an overproduction of melanin, the substance that gives skin its color. This is activated by sun exposure and darkening spots on your skin. Many of these are benign, while others can change over time and become precancerous or even skin cancer.
Sun damage can also cause premature aging, as UV rays can damage the collagen and elastin in your skin. This can lead to wrinkles, saggy skin, and a loss of elasticity.
If you're noticing any of these signs, it's important to seek treatment from a skin rejuvenation expert. There are a number of treatments available that can help correct sun damage and brighten your skin.
If you're looking for a way to brighten skin and reduce the signs of sun damage, professional skin rejuvenation treatments may be the solution for you. These treatments can help correct sun damage, brighten your skin, and help you look younger.
There are a number of different professional skin rejuvenation treatments available, including laser skin resurfacing treatments like HALO and Moxi, and IPL treatments like the BBL Hero. HydraFacial also offers a customized application designed to address hyperpigmentation.
The HALO laser is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that is designed to reduce hyperpigmentation and brighten skin. It uses a combination of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to achieve these results. The ablative laser removes the top layer of skin, while the non-ablative laser penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production. This combination of lasers helps to correct sun damage and brighten skin, while also addressing skin texture concerns.
The Moxi laser is a non-ablative laser that treats more on the surface of the skin. It treats sun damage, melasma, and uneven skin tone, as well as fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture concerns, and enlarged pores.
The BBL Hero is a next-generation IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment that is designed to treat sun damage and hyperpigmentation. It uses broadband light to penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate collagen production. This helps to correct sun damage and brighten skin. The BBL Hero is a popular treatment for treating sun damage and hyperpigmentation, and it can provide dramatic results. We often pair this treatment with our Moxi laser for a combination approach to care.
The HydraFacial is a popular treatment for treating sun damage and hyperpigmentation. It uses a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration to achieve these results. The HydraFacial also uses a vortex-fusion technology to deliver antioxidants, peptides, and skin brightening ingredients deep into the skin. This helps to correct sun damage and brighten skin. The HydraFacial is a safe and effective treatment that can provide dramatic results over a series of applications.
To get the most out of these treatments, it's important to follow an at-home, professional-grade skincare routine. This includes using sunscreen religiously and using products that offer brightening and smoothing effects.
If you're noticing any of the symptoms of sun damage mentioned above, it's important to seek treatment from a professional skin rejuvenation expert. These treatments can help correct sun damage and brighten your skin, but it's best administered in the hands of a certified, licensed expert. Choose wisely, because these powerful and effective treatments provide beautiful results in the right hands; in the wrong hands, they can do some damage.
