Three Ways to Correct Sun-Damaged Skin
sun-damaged skin
Long, lazy days lounging in the sun once gave you perfectly bronzed skin. Fast forward 20 years later and now you’ve noticed that your care-free days of unprotected time in the sun have taken a toll on your skin across your face, hands, arms and general body. Signs of sun-damaged skin include uneven pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, saggy skin and more. Fortunately, there are a few options available to improve or entirely treat your sun-damaged skin. Keep reading to learn more about a variety of sun damage treatment options available to you.

Skincare Products

First, it’s important to emphasize that in order to reverse sun-damaged skin, you must protect your skin from further damage. One of the best defenses against sun damage is a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. At Deux Rosé Beauty Refinery, our experienced advanced aestheticians typically recommend sunscreens such as the SunBetter Advanced Mineral Protection, which provides an extraordinary level of protection against UVA (aging) and UVB (burning) rays.

After you’ve guaranteed you’re protecting your skin from further damage, let’s discuss products that can begin to repair your skin. Two of our flagship products that work to correct and repair sun damage are  SkinBetter’s Even Tone Correcting Serum and SkinBetter’s Alto Defense Serum.

Laser Treatment

In addition to skincare products, laser treatments have also proven to be effective in combatting sun damage. One of our most popular laser treatments for sun-damaged skin is the IPL treatment. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments, AKA photofacials, uses broadband light to improve the appearance of sun spots, age spots and skin texture. A handheld device channels light energy to target specific parts of your skin. IPL treatments are non-invasive treatments that are both effective and affordable.

PDO Threads

As we previously mentioned, sun damage can cause sagging skin in various areas of your body. Thankfully, PDO threads are here to help! Smooth PDO threads are ideal for skin rejuvenation. These threads prompt your skin to produce collagen where they’re placed, which can help treat sun-damaged skin. For patients struggling with saggy skin, barbed PDO threads can be used to lift and tighten the skin, reversing and repairing the damage caused by the sun. (A consultation is required prior to all PDO treatments.)
