Years of prolonged exposure to the sun without proper protection can have detrimental effects on the skin and lead to visible sun damage. Sun damage can cause the skin to age prematurely, making you look older than you actually are. At REJÚV esthetics, we can reverse the visible effects of sun damage with a full range of aesthetic services.
Serving Poplar Bluff in the Coppertop and surrounding areas in Missouri, REJÚV esthetics is your premier destination for clearing imperfections such as sun damage from your naturally beautiful skin. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our medical team.
What Causes Sun Damage?
Many men and women develop a long-term habit of sunbathing or tanning without using a protective sunscreen. While having a golden glow is a common cosmetic goal, exposing your vulnerable skin to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays can cause damage in the future. Frequent tanners often develop visible signs of aging much faster and can also develop surface imperfections such as:
- Fine and coarse wrinkles
- Discolorations of the skin
- Dilated, small blood vessels
- Sagging, drooping skin due to collagen destruction
In severe cases, sun damage can also potentially develop into benign tumors or skin cancer. Protecting your skin while you’re outside is the best line of defense against developing sun damage, but after this condition has already developed, we can help you reverse the effects and restore your healthy skin.
There may be more going on with your skin than is visible on the surface, and our complexion analysis system can accurately measure the surfaces and subsurfaces of your skin and identify the full extent of your sun damage. After you begin treatment, this system can also track the progress of your condition for results you can see both above and below the surface.
Light-based treatments such as BBL™ can not only target discoloration and signs of aging at the source, but they can also help tighten the existing collagen and increase the production of collagen in deeper dermal layers for continued improvements to sun damaged skin over time.
Using a process known as Collagen Induction Therapy, this micro-needling device is moved over the skin and dozens of tiny needles slightly penetrate the surface. This opens up the surface and promotes healing and further collagen production to strengthen and increase flexibility of treated areas over time. This popular procedure can reverse the effects of sun damage and provide a solution to long-term management of skin imperfections.
At REJÚV esthetics, we offer two advanced laser systems to target sun damage:
- MicroLaserPeel®: This laser scans treated areas and removes very thin layers of skin at a time, stimulating the body’s healing response while leaving the healthy skin intact. After a MicroLaserPeel® treatment, new skin cells grow and remodel the surface to reduce visible sun damage.
- ProFractional™: Another system capable of treating deeper dermal layers of skin without affecting the surface, ProFractional™ treats a fraction of skin at a time and creates microchannels that stimulate gradual healing and remodeling.
Skincare tends to work better when it is customized to the patient. With HydraFacial®, patients receive targeted treatments whether they have normal, oily, or sensitive skin, and regardless of your skincare needs, HydraFacial® leaves you feeling refreshed without drying out your skin.
Results may vary, and treatment plans may differ depending on your unique condition. Our team will suggest the best sun damage treatments for you during your consultation.
