Reverse The Look Of Sun Damaged Skin With Sun Damage Treatments In Kent
The weather this week may now look a little glum, but it is still summer. For many of us, this season comes with a host of happy memories and experiences. However, it also can create some not so pleasant memories that are permanently etched on our skin. Sun damage is a common issue that many of us live with, but for some of us this issue has gone much further than the occasional pink hue to our skin. Instead it has left us with dull and older looking skin. The signs of sun damage can be extremely hard to combat, but with the help of sun damage treatments in Kent at Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic, this can be an issue of the past.
Chemical peel treatment
The first issue that many patients often need to combat in order to achieve healthy and sun damage-free skin is the look of dull skin. This is a problem that is notoriously hard to conquer, but with the help of a chemical peel treatment this issue can be combated.
Chemical peel treatment is the first sun damage treatment in Kent that Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic offers. The treatment aims to improve the look of dull looking skin; whilst also improving the look of several other issues of the skin too, including deep set lines, sun damage and acne. The treatment works by safely peeling the top layer of damaged skin in a controlled way. This involves adding a chemical solution to the skin in order to reveal the healthier and more radiant skin that lies beneath.
Chemical peel treatment is a great way to begin your journey to sun damage-free skin as it effectively provides patients with a clean slate. Peeling away the damaged skin allows patients to start over with their skincare routine and to make the positive changes with sun protection that they didn’t do previously. The treatment also frees patients of the signs of ageing that they may have developed as a result of sun damage, leaving patients with youthful and healthy looking skin. Of course, there is no substitue for year-round SPF use – so make sure you add daily SPF to your skincare routine.
In many cases patients with less severe forms of sun damage do not need to go through a strong sun damage treatment like a chemical peel to achieve the results they want. In these cases microdermabrasion can be a great option.
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic treatment that aims to improve a multitude of issues within the skin; sun damaged, dull looking skin, age spots, and loss of elasticity within the skin can all be treated. Microdermabrasion does this by gently penetrating the skin with tiny crystals to remove the top layer of damaged skin. At Canterbury Skin and Laser we use a pulse oxygen feed to perform the treatment. This allows the practitioner to penetrate the deeper layers of skin to remove more damaged skin and imperfections.
The great thing about about microdermabrasion is that is allows patients to improve the look and feel of their damage skin in a gentle way. The treatment can provide patients with a dramatically improved look to a number of issues in the skin, making it the perfect sun damage treatment in Kent to combat a number of sun damage issue at once.
Non-surgical facial rejuvenation
In some cases the effects of sun can accelerate the ageing process, and lines and wrinkles within the skin develop. Other sun damage treatments in Kent such as chemical peels can help improve the look of these signs of ageing, but if this isn’t enough to shift your wrinkles, non-surgical facial rejuvenation might be for you.
The term ‘non-surgical facial rejuvenation’ refers to a number of different cosmetic treatments that aim to improve the look of ageing skin,without the need to go under the knife. The two main treatments in this category used to fight the signs of sun damage such as wrinkles are Botox and dermal fillers.
Botox is a cosmetic injectable that aims to improve the look of lines and wrinkles in the skin, whilst also providing patients with a protective barrier against the formation of further signs of ageing. Botox does this by restricting the use of the facial muscles. This is an effective solution to lines and wrinkles because it prevents the creasing of the skin that can lead to the development of wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are a group of cosmetic injectables that allow patients to reduce the look of deep set lines and wrinkles; the treatment does this by increasing the volume in the skin. These injections effective plump the skin in which they are injected into in order to smooth the look of wrinkles, and leave patients with a youthful appearance.
Non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments are an effective form of sun damage treatment in Kent as they allow patients to improve the look of the signs of ageing that have developed through sun damage. These treatments are extremely time effective and can easily be fitted around a patient’s busy lifestyle. With an average treatment time of 30 minutes and little recovery time needed, non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments are the perfect solution for patients that are looking reverse the ageing process in a short time period.
