Sun Damage

sundamage

Sun exposure of the face, neck & décolleté, back and extremities over time, results in solar keratoses, areas of hyper-pigmentation, and over time hypo-pigmentation, especially of the upper and lateral areas of the neck, referred to as Poikiloderma. The skin of the décolleté, also appears thick, rough, coarse & multicoloured with vertical lines and wrinkles, due to chronic sun exposure and -damage.

Sunblock is essential in combatting and repairing sun damage. Choose a sunblock which has: a combination of physical, chemical and biological filters that protect against UVB, UVA, IR-A and visible light, neutralises free radical activity, helps repair damage to cellular and mitochondrial DNA and offers a photo-immuno-protective coverage. Capsules are also available to provide optimised protection.

Additional treatment options include; fractional laser &/or bi-polar light therapy, Dermal fillers to improve the quality and texture of the skin and micro-needling with or without PRP (Platelet rich plasma) At least three treatments are required, and one needs to understand that the full effect of the treatments are only visible 90 days after the third treatment.
