3 Ways to Fight Sun Damage after Summer Adventures

Sure, you may love the way your golden tan looks after a summer full of boating, hiking and lounging by the pool, but the aftermath of sun damage isn’t so attractive.

[pullquote]   The damaging UV rays from the sun can lead to premature aging and wrinkles, as well as sun spots and other hyperpigmentation issues.


If your skin is showing signs that you didn’t use quite as much sunscreen as you should’ve this summer, here are some effective treatments to help repair sun damage.

1. Laser Skin Resurfacing

Fraxel® is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that pinpoints and eliminates old and damaged skin cells and stimulates the body’s natural healing process to renew and rejuvenate the skin. This FDA-approved treatment can dramatically help your complexion by improving the skin’s overall texture and appearance and erase fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and unsightly sun spots.

2. Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a noninvasive treatment that can be completely customized to address your unique skin concerns. Although they’ve been around for decades, chemical peels still have a very relevant place in modern skin care.

As the name implies, chemicals of varying strengths are used to remove the dull, damaged top layer of skin and reveal new, smoother, healthier-looking skin below. Chemical peels have many benefits and can improve a number of complexion concerns, including wrinkles, uneven tone and texture, acne scarring and sun damage.

3. Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is another highly effective skin rejuvenation treatment that proves you don’t have to go under the knife to get younger-looking skin. Microdermabrasion treatments are quick, painless and effective. A handheld tool is used to gently exfoliate the skin and slough away dead, damaged skin cells. Microdermabrasion is most effective when performed in a series of treatments and can give you smoother skin and a radiant, youthful glow.
