As we head into Autumn, the cooler temperatures can really dry out your skin. This dryness leaves it looking lined, and so, wrinkles seem more visible. As we focus on these imperfections in the mirror, we also start to spot the tell-tale signs of sun damage, including dark spots- freckles, age spots and liver spots. Thankfully, autumn is the perfect time to address these visible signs of ageing. And at enhanceskin, we offer our Nelson and Marlborough clients the perfect combination of sun damage solutions.
Sun Damage Solutions in Nelson & Marlborough:
There are several treatments we recommend as sun damage solutions. These are all enhanced with tailored home skincare, which Brittany, our Cosmetic Nurse, can prescribe for you.
Firstly, let’s look at the treatments:
A medi-facial, otherwise known as a peel, is often a great place to start on your reversal of sun damage. We have different clinical skin peel options available. Don’t be afraid of the word ‘Peel’. These days peels are more about stimulating your skin and quite ‘pampery’ compared with peels of yesteryear!
IPL – Intense Pulse Light:
We can use this procedure to treat pigmentation and red veins. This sun damage solution requires no downtime, and after a course of 3 to 5 sessions, will give a 70 to 80 per cent improvement in appearance.
Fractora – Fractional Resurfacing:
This procedure uses fractionated Radio Frequency energy to rejuvenate and resurface the skin. It can slow the effects of ageing and restore your skin, so you can look and feel younger. Fractora is perfect for reducing fine lines, tightening the skin, reducing red and brown spots, and improving skin texture.
Platelet Rich Plasma:
Platelet Rich Plasma involves taking a blood sample, concentrating the platelets from that sample and reinjecting the platelets back into the body to help heal and regenerate tissue. It is especially effective for rejuvenation of crinkling skin around the eyes, jawline, lower-face; and around the lips, cheeks, mid-face volume loss, chest and, décolletage.
Finally, a combination of treatments will often accelerate results. For example, Fractora combined with Platelet Rich Plasma can supercharge the process of reversing sun damage.
Firstly, Aspect Dr™ Complete Pigment Plus. This product contains an advanced formula that combines five key actives, including Tranexamic Acid and Tyrostat-11™ unveiling a more even, radiant-looking complexion. This is one of Robyn’s favourite products as a sun damage solution.
We also love PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum. This product plumps and firms your skin through increased hydration with this advanced hyaluronic acid formulation. This soothing blend provides deep, long-lasting hydration on three levels: on the surface, deeper in the skin and by increasing the skin’s own hyaluronic acid production.
And finally, never underestimate the power of Vitamin A in the fight against sun damage. This is why we love Aspect Dr, Exfol A Plus. A refining serum combining the power of Lactic Acid, Lanablue™, and Retinol to even your skin’s texture, colour and tone.
