Treatment For Sun Damage
How Do You Treat Sun Damaged Skin?
Vitamin D is essential for optimal human functioning. However, too much exposure to the sun’s UV rays can result in sunburns, dark spots, wrinkles, and more advanced problems such as skin cancer. Treatment for sun damage resulting in sunburns consists of frequent cool baths or showers to help relieve pain, aloe vera which helps to soothe the skin, and aspirin to help reduce swelling, redness, or discomfort. Dark spots can be improved through vitamin C, lasers, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and microneedling.
Vitamin C helps to block free radicals from causing damage to the skin. Lasers use a beam of light to target to break up pigment in the skin. Chemical peels remove the top layer of dead skin leading to glowing skin. Microdermabrasion sands the top of skin layers and ridding the dark spots. Microneedling creates hundreds of micro injuries forcing the skin to rebuild the skin collagen and elasticity. Based on skin sensitivities and severity of damage, your dermatologist can help you to find the best treatment for sun damage.
