Expert Tips for Sun Damaged Skin


treating sun damaged skinSummer sun feels amazing but it can be unkind to your skin. After being out in the sun this summer you may have noticed that your skin looks and feels different. The sun’s effects do not go away just because the season changes. It may have caused brown spots, uneven texture or new fine lines. These unwanted symptoms are caused by sun damage.

Sun damage is when skin has been exposed to excess UV Rays. The UV rays are harmful and have lingering side effects. Sun damage includes increased age spots, crow’s feet, frown lines, and more! Excessive sun exposure is the most significant cause of aging skin (up to 80%). This is not something to brush off.

However, we do have good news! There are many treatments that reduce the effect of sun damage on your skin. Each symptom has a different recommended treatment.

For Hyperpigmentation & Uneven Toned Skin

We recommend using a medical grade skin care regimen for best results. We love the ZO Skin Health Retinol Skin Brightener which helps to break up existing pigmentation while brightening the skin and offering antioxidant protection. Another favorite ZO product is the Brightalive Skin Brightener. This product also provides brightening and blocks new pigment formation all while calming and soothing the skin.

We’ve seen amazing results with our facial rejuvenation package consisting of hydrafacials and laser treatments. This comprehensive program not only treats hyperpigmentation but also the overall health of the skin. In combination with a medical grade skin care routine, results include, more even-toned, brighter, skin with improved texture and hydration.
