SUN DAMAGE REVISION

Sun exposure can cause collagen damage, decreased collagen production and DNA damage in the skin. This can lead to an aged appearance, presenting with wrinkles, pigmentation, altered skin texture, redness, dilated veins, amongst many other changes.

Sun damage revision aims at improving skin health and reducing the risk of skin cancer, and thus reducing the need for surgery or other treatments.

Sun damage prevention and treatment includes:

  • Sun screen with SPF 50+, to prevent further ultra-violet radiation damage.
  • Topical creams, containing products such as Retinoic acid, hydroquinone.
  • Chemical peels, to remove the outer layer of sun damaged skin, to reduce pigmentation and reveal fresh, smooth and younger looking skin.
  • Photo Dynamic Therapy.
  • Intense pulsed light IPL, for treatment of skin redness and brown spots.
  • Laser stimulation of new collagen formation, reducing dilated veins, and promoting skin tightening.

Hyperpigmentation


Types and causes of hyperpigmentation include congenital, sun-stimulation and hormonal (which can be related to contraceptive use, pregnancy, aging etc).

Ephelides

Congenital hyperchromias, exacerbated in summer, appear on the face, hands and other body areas, and is a typical disorder in skin phototypes I and II.

Melasma /Chloasma


Yellow or brown-colored hyperchromic pigmentation, related to hormonal or light stimulation, with different sizes and irregular contour, that are located most frequently on the cheeks, eyelids, upper lip and chin. When the disorder is associated with pregnancy, treatment should be initiated after the birth of the child.

Lentigosolaris /senilis

A further sign of the skin aging process, which usually appear between the fourth and fifth decade. They are generally diagnosed and treated together with skin aging, and senile pigmentation needs preventive measures, mainly photo-protection.

Post-inflammatory


These appear as a consequence ofchemical, physical or mechanical insults, inflammatory acne, laser treatments and peelings etc, that bring about an inflammatory condition.

Phototoxicity

Caused by prior contact with a photosentisitzing substance (drugs, foods, chemical agents and cosmetics) and later exposure to UV radiation.

If the onset of pigmentation is recent, chemical peel treatment can be highly effective. If longer established then more ablative treatment is required.
