Sun Damage Q & A

Lueur Skin Studio

How does the sun damage my skin?

Sunlight consists of several different wavelengths of light and other radiation. In addition to its role in sustaining life, sunlight can give you glowing suntans, which is often considered a sign of good health.

However, the ultraviolet (UV) rays damage your skin at the cellular level, changing the DNA in a way that accelerates the aging process. In addition to temporary and painful sunburns, overexposure to sunlight leads to collagen loss, sagging skin, wrinkles, and discoloration.

How can I tell if I have sun damage?

A simple suntan is a sign your skin has been damaged by the sun. If you reach the point where your skin is pink and painful, your skin has already been damaged at the cellular level. In addition to dryness and rough patches of skin, some of the lasting effects of sun damage include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Dark patches of skin like age spots
  • Melasma
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Skin cancer

In addition to damaging your skin, overexposure to the sun can worsen the appearance of other imperfections like acne scarring, stretch marks, or spider veins. It’s also critical to avoid the sun if you’re having laser treatments such as laser hair removal or skin rejuvenation treatments. The lasers used in such treatments make your skin even more susceptible to sun damage.

How is sun damage treated?

The team of aesthetic specialists at Lueur Skin Studio offers highly customizable treatments to reverse sun damage and restore the appearance of your skin.

Lueur Skin Studio uses the advanced technology of the Icon™ laser system from Cynosure® to rejuvenate your skin. The Icon laser system works to stimulate collagen production in your skin and provide deep exfoliation to remove old, dead cells from the surface of your skin. Depending on the severity of your sun damage, you might need several Icon treatment sessions to see optimal results.

Lueur Skin Studio also offers cosmetic treatments, including microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and customized facials to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, discoloration, and scarring. Additionally, your aesthetic specialist provides advice on home skin care products, including sunscreen that can protect your skin and help you look your best.
