As we age, our skin often starts to show signs of skin damage. This may be confusing at first, especially if you take a lot of time caring for your skin.
We all know that the sun can damage our skin, but did you know it takes up to thirty years for that damage to become visible?
Signs Of Skin Damage
There are many ways our skin can try and tell us it has been damaged. One of the most common ways our skin shows its damage is with an uneven skin tone and texture.
When this damage is in a visible area, such as the face, it can start to affect your confidence. At Skin Perfection London, we believe that everyone should be happy and comfortable with their appearance.
While we know that the sun can be dangerous for our skin, many of us don’t actually know why. We all enjoy spending time in the sun, but the reality is we are exposing our skin to harmful UV rays. Long periods of exposure to UV rays from sunlight can cause damage to skin cells.
This is what leads to age spots appearing, particularly on the face and hands. Exposure to these rays can also reduce levels of collagen and elastin, which is what gives the skin its strength and elasticity. This means that the skin starts to sag and wrinkle prematurely.
Other Causes Of Skin Discolouration
While sun damage is one of the main reason to why we develop an uneven skin tone, there are other unavoidable reasons. Birthmarks and melasma, which mostly occurs during and after pregnancy, are other conditions which lead to skin discolouration.
While these are not harmful, they can be a source of insecurity for many women.
We have a range of treatments and products that are effective in helping to lessen the effects of skin damage. Depending on your individual skin concern, we will recommend a product or treatment best suited to you.
Laser Photo Facial Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation is effective in treating a range of skin concerns. These include:
Sun damage and sun spots
Wide areas of pigmentation
How Does It Work?
This laser treatment is effective in treating the effects of sun damage and dark patches of hyperpigmentation. It works by emitting a selected amount of light energy that targets brown lesions in the skin. These lesions are prominent in sun damage, freckling, and general discolouration.
As the heat is emitted it tightens the skin and stimulates collagen and elastin, while also reducing any open pores. The collagen then works to repair damage to the skin.
Laser Pigmentation Removal
Laser Skin Pigmentation Removal is another way we can help treat skin damage. The treatment can target damage on a superficial level, along with the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin.
Pigmented and sun damaged areas, particularly on the face, forehead, shoulders and arms can all be treated.
