3 Skin Treatments to Repair and Reverse Sun Damage

Sep 2, 2019 | Skin Care

Living in Arizona, the sun is both our friend and enemy. If you’re worried about the damage that your skin may have suffered as a result, here are three of the best treatments to help repair sun damaged skin.

  1. Chemical Peels

Not only do chemical peels help to repair and reverse the effects of sun damage, they also help treat fine lines, freckles, dull complexion, and acne. Light to medium depth chemical peels utilize fruit, glycolic, lactic, or salicylic acids to disrupt bonds between dead skin cells. This encourages the skin to begin a natural healing process, removing the outermost layers of skin and revealing fresh skin in its place.


The light to medium depth chemical peels used now offer little to no discomfort and minimal downtime. These less intensive chemical peels rejuvenate your skin, improving the texture of skin that has suffered from sun damage. In addition to repairing sun damage, chemical peels can provide added benefits of lightening scars, removing debris and dead skin cells, balancing the pigmentation of the skin, and brightening your skin overall.

  1. Endymed Pro

Not everyone is a fan of needles, which makes treatments like Endymed Pro even more appealing because they can repair sun damaged skin with no needles and no invasive surgery.

With Endymed Pro 3DEEP, your licensed aesthetician uses special radio frequencies to reach the deepest layers of your skin, boosting your skin’s ability to repair itself and increasing collagen production. This is an especially useful treatment as sun damage can often result in premature wrinkles, and 3DEEP helps eliminate these wrinkles and improves the overall look of your skin, without being overly invasive or painful.

  1. Microdermabrasion

Another effective treatment for sun damaged skin is microdermabrasion, which involves using a special machine to manually exfoliate your skin. Your aesthetician will begin by evaluating your unique skin and create a customized treatment plan to give you the best results. While microdermabrasion is most effective when done in a series of treatments, you’ll likely see results as soon as your first treatment, which usually only takes around 60 minutes. During your treatment, skin is exfoliated, extractions are performed, and specialized enzymatic masks are used to reverse sun damage and other skin complaints.
