What is the Best Treatment for Sun Damaged Skin?

Sep 22, 2021 | Skin Care



Almost everyone appreciates the look of sun-kissed skin. However, no one wants the damage that the sun can cause. Here are three treatments that North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic recommends for reversing sun damage.

1. Medical-Grade Chemical Peel

A medical-grade chemical peel is one of the easiest way to rejuvenate the skin on your face. Light to moderate peels can be performed in about an hour and will gently remove the top layers of skin to reveal the healthy, new skin below. Peels can improve the texture of sun-damaged skin and allow your skin to naturally repair itself.

2. FotoFacial Intense Pulsed Light

The FotoFacial process involves a series of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments to rejuvenate your skin. The intense light penetrates into the deepest part of your skin to stimulate healing from within. It is ideal for treating signs of sun damage, including freckles, age spots, fine lines, and irregular pigmentation.

3. ActiveFX Laser Skin Resurfacing

The ActiveFX CO2 ablative laser resurfaces your skin by penetrating below its upper layers to stimulate healing in sun damaged areas. This treatment helps improve the tone and texture of your skin while it eliminates damage from the sun, including sun spots, skin discoloration, wrinkles, and fine/deeper lines.
