Sometimes there’s nothing better than soaking up the warm sunshine – especially after a winter of cold air and freezing rain!
But for every instance you soak up sun without wearing proper sun protection, you’re creating layers of damaged skin. Harmful UV rays penetrate even the deepest dermis layers to harm skin, causing hyperpigmentation that you might not see until years after the damage has been done.
Once sun damage appears, it can have multiple symptoms, including:
- Freckles and brown spots (also known as hyperpigmentation)
- Excess wrinkles and lines
- Uneven skin tone and texture
If you’re currently looking to reduce the amount of sun damage visible on your face – and the damage that’s still lurking underneath your skin – it’s time to discover Fraxel laser skin resurfacing treatments at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery in El Paso, Texas.
Fraxel laser skin resurfacing is an excellent option for clients who want to minimize the appearance of symptoms associated with sun damage, including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. The Fraxel treatment uses CO2 energy to safely remove the top most damaged dermis layers. The procedure delivers extremely fast results, with most patients only needing one to two treatments to see ideal results.
Like with most laser resurfacing treatments, patients will need to wear a high SPF sunscreen to protect their skin immediately after the treatment. This should become a regular practice anyway, as sunscreen can help mitigate much of the sun’s most harmful UV rays.
