SUN DAMAGE TREATMENT IN EDMONTON BY PERFECTION COSMETICS
The sun’s rays make us feel great, warming our skin and giving us a beautiful dark glow. But sadly prolonged exposure to sun’s ultraviolet rays causes most of the wrinkles and sun spots on our faces, neck, chest and hands. Sun exposure also causes many of the changes in our skin that we believe is a normal part of aging. Over time, the sun's ultraviolet light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these elastin fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching. The skin also bruises and tears more easily -- taking longer to heal. So while sun damage to the skin may not be apparent when you're young, it will definitely show later in life and can even increase our chances of developing skin cancer.
Skin Changes Caused by Prolonged Sun Exposure
• Pre-cancerous (actinic keratosis) and cancerous (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma) skin lesions
• Benign tumors
• Fine and coarse wrinkles
• Discolored areas of the skin, called mottled pigmentation
• Sallowness - a yellow discoloration of the skin
• Telangiectasia’s - the dilation of small blood vessels under the skin
• Elastosis - the destruction of the elastic and collagen tissue (causing lines, wrinkles and sagging skin)
Sun Damage Treatments
At Perfection we have three different methods for sun damaged skin; uur MiXto SX Co2 laser, Sciton Joule BBL or Vi-Peel. Each procedure will give you the results you desire, depending on how severe the damage is and if you are okay with downtime is one of the main factors in determining which will work best for you.
