What IS IT?
Most human beings enjoy being in the sun, we love the warming sensation it creates on our skin and the healthy look a golden tan gives us. We even were taught that the sun can be healthy, but it should have been emphasized just how dangerous excessive sun exposure can be. Over time, a sun damaged skin will not look healthy at all.
Excessive sun exposure will alter the function and structure of your skin cells, which may result in skin cancer. Extreme sun exposure will also dry out the skin, cause hyper-pigmentation and give the skin a leathery, wrinkled appearance. Collagen and elastin fibres also get damaged by the sun’s UV rays, which results in premature ageing of the skin. Sun damaged skin is fairly easy to recognize as it will appear dehydrated, dry, with an uneven skin tone and have fine lines and wrinkles.
Lamelle Pigmentation Chemical Peel
Within the variety of chemical peels offered by Lamelle, the Beta Peel will be the best to treat your sun damaged skin. There is a 15% and a 20% peel, each with 2 layers, but the therapists at Glo will determine which one you should have. This treatment can be done every 2-6 weeks in order to lighten dark or reddish brown marks.
FormaTk’s Skin Rejuvenation & Pigmentation
This treatment can treat sun damaged skin by effectively drawing the discolouration to the surface of the skin, allowing the dermis to begin the healing process of correcting the blemishes over time.
