Nothing shows the effects of years of sun exposure like the skin – particularly skin on the face, neck, chest and hands. When the skin suffers sun damage, it often develops brown spots, redness and early onset of wrinkles. Fortunately, there is a treatment available to help reduce the appearance of sun damage, smoothing the skin and fading away pigmentation. It is called Intense Pulse Light therapy, or IPL, and it is a completely safe way for people her to address the effects of extensive sun damage.
Did you know…Did you know that the ultraviolet rays produced by the sun are a form of radiation? These rays pass directly into the skin, damaging and killing cells. Worse, the effects of sun damage take years to appear and could cause early signs of aging. Everyone should take preventative measures to avoid sun damage beginning at an early age, including the daily use of sunscreen, protective clothing and avoiding the sun when its rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
