Sun Damage Q & A

What is sun damage?

When you spend time outdoors, the sun gives off ultraviolet (UV) light that slowly damages your skin. UV light is always present, even when the sun isn’t shining. That’s why it’s important to wear sunscreen every day, even if it looks dark and gloomy out.

As you age, habits from your youth can begin to affect the appearance of your skin. Not only does frequent tanning and time spent outside without sunscreen raise your risk of skin cancer, but it also causes wrinkles and other skin issues.

What does sun damage look like?

Sun damage can take years to build on your skin. The damage may look subtle at first, but without treatment, it can prematurely age your skin and make you look several years older than you are. Some of the signs of sun damage include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Saggy or loose skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Brown spots
  • Melasma (brown or gray patches)
  • Blotchy complexion
  • Redness
  • Spider veins

Everybody’s skin is unique, but you will likely notice these changes early on if you regularly tan outside or use tanning beds.

What are the best treatments for sun damage?

Botox and Beauty Boutiques has a variety of sun damage treatments for all skin types. They use both IMAGE Skincare® and PCA SKIN® products to effectively break up sun damage pigmentation while protecting your skin from further damage.

If your sun damage is more severe, the team offers several different chemical peels to gently remove the surface layer of your skin, where damage is most obvious. Chemical peels can help improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation, melasma, brown spots, and a blotchy complexion in as little as one treatment.

The team also performs intense pulsed light therapy (IPL), which delivers targeted pulses of light into your skin to break up unwanted pigmentation. IPL therapy reaches the deepest layers of your skin tissue to repair damage while tightening and firming your skin without surgery.

Because IPL therapy is a non-invasive treatment, you can return to your regular activities almost immediately after each appointment.
