Don't let sun damage stop your shine

When it comes to the sun leaving its mark on our skin, we all know that prevention is better than cure. If you’re now seeing the effects of damage from years ago, we’re here to help! Let’s explore how we develop freckles and brown spots and what lifestyle adjustments and treatment options exist to reduce their appearance.

While some people are more vulnerable to sun damage, like those with fair skin and red hair, anyone who spends time in the sun is damaging their skin. Without basic protective measures like a hat and sunscreen, the likelihood of sun damage increases rapidly. Past tanning bed use can accelerate UV damage over a shorter timeframe. Sun damage often surfaces months or years after the tan has faded. 

UV exposure changes our DNA at a cellular level and in some instances, these changes not only age the skin, they can lead to precancerous spots.  

When it comes to your skin and the sun, prevention is definitely better than cure. Once the damage is done, it can take years for the effects to surface in the skin.

Sun damage can lead to actinic keratosis, a thickened, scaly growth that develops years after exposure. If you notice these on your skin, you should see Dr Donnellan as it may need to be assessed and potentially removed. 

The good news is visible signs of sun damage can be managed and improved with a considered skin care routine and several non-invasive treatments. Sun spots, lines and texture can all be improved with limited downtime. 

Regular skin checks should for a part of most individuals skin care routine, more so if you have a family history of skin cancer.

Sun protection should be used along with after-sun treatment as soon as possible after incurring sun damage to replenish the moisture content of your skin.

As for the after-effects of sun damage – wrinkles, blotches, brown spots, broken capillaries, and in some cases, skin cancers – there are a range of treatments you can use to lessen the appearance. Exfoliants, lightening agents, chemical peels, and antioxidant treatments are amongst the best options for speeding up the recovery process for your skin. For more pronounced sun damage skin resurfacing and rejuvenation can compliment your at-home routine.
