The summer is almost over and you are probably wondering how you will get rid of all the sun damage you have incurred during your summer beach days, BBQ and other outings. Don’t worry we have several solutions for you!
In my previous newsletter, I discussed three ways the sun harms your skin including sun spots also known as “age spots”.
To quickly review, the top layer of our skin (epidermis) produces a substance called melanin which gives your skin its normal color
The normal production of melanin is increased in response to sun exposure to actually protect your skin against harmful Ultraviolet radiation. The more melanin is produced, the darker your skin gets. Since it is not always evenly produced, there are certain areas of the face that will get more pigment and eventually turn to sun or age spots as you get older. The areas most commonly exposed to the sun are your face, hands, arms, ears, upper back, and upper chest.
So what can we do about these sun spots?
First and foremost we offer several medical grade chemical peels from Skinmedica to help with this.
I recommend a series of three peels, one month apart to help you get rid of any sun damage and improve the texture of your skin.
If you are not ready to do chemical peels and/or have only mild sun damage, then we can offer you a great product by skinmedica called Lytera which helps to brighten and lighten your skin.Share
