Treating sun damage in Portsmouth
Treating sun damage in Portsmouth at Perfect Skin Solutions
When it comes to treating sun damage in Portsmouth, such as age spots, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, many patients are unsure of what cosmetic skin rejuvenation treatments are available to them.
With so much in the news about maintaining skin health, and an increased awareness of skin cancer and ageing as a result of sun damage, some clients are seeking to reverse the signs of facial ageing.
In the news recently, model and mum of 5 Katie Price was urged by her social media followers to take better care in the sun after she posted a series of snaps of her and her family on a sunshine break. Fans were quick to pick up on the TV star’s deep tan and newly acquired fine lines around the eyes and freckles, questioning whether Katie had gone too far in her quest for the perfect bronzed glow.
No stranger to hot holidays, and having previously told her legion of followers she has a sun bed in her home, Katie Price now exhibits some classic signs of sun damage and is a perfect example of how UV rays can damage the skin. The UVA ageing rays from the sun – not not be confused with UVB rays which cause skin to burn – can drastically age the skin, causing fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and age spots, and lax or saggy skin.
So what do the experts think of Katie’s summer tan quest, and how can you start treating sun damage in Portsmouth? Skin health expert Dr Dev Patel is the cosmetic doctor here at Perfect Skin Solutions and says:
“Katie’s images have often suggested that she has had treatments with both dermal fillers and Botox; albeit, sometimes in excessive amounts. The significant sun damage she will have sustained to her skin from her recent holiday is unlikely to have a great impact on the results of these treatments, however it certainly will undo the benefits from skin rejuvenation treatments, whatever that might have been, from chemical skin peels to energy assisted skin tightening.”
In fact, many patients focus so much on injectable treatments and ignore the health of their skin completely, according to the cosmetic doctor. Preventing ongoing damage especially from the sun, as well as correcting the damage already done over the years, is so important to maintaining a healthy, fresh appearance, says Dr Dev Patel.
“Most of us like the apparent “healthy” glow of a tan and it does feel nice to get some rays on your face and body from time to time. However, one has to draw a sensible line between what feels and looks good and the clear damage we are doing in the short and long term. Just take a look at those in their 50s and 60s who have been sun worshippers and my point is made,” he concludes.
What non surgical skin rejuvenation treatments are available for patients considering treating sun damage in Portsmouth? Popular options for skin rejuvenation and anti ageing without surgery include chemical skin peels and energy assisted skin tightening treatments such as Lipofirm Pro. There are also reliable anti wrinkle and fine line reduction treatments in the form of Harmony XL Pro – all of which are available at Perfect Skin solution in Portsmouth.
