Now that summer is over, it is time to address the adverse effects the sun left on our skin. Sunlight contains ultraviolet (UV) rays that heat and damage your collagen and elastin.

UVB (think B for burn) are of shorter length and reach the surface of the skin, resulting in redness and sunburns. Contrary to popular belief, sunburn is not the only sun damage on the skin.

UVA rays (think A for aging) are longer and penetrate deep into the skin, damage cells and are responsible for wrinkles, uneven skin tone , dryness and other signs of aging.

Here are ways to repair skin damage caused by the sun

 

Sun damage: uneven complexion, age spots, brown spots, solar lentigines

Solutions: intense pulsed light lasers (IPL) or Pixel lasers to gradually get rid of brown spots.
