Protecting Your Skin From Sun Damage & What to do When the Damage is Done

Protecting your skin from sun spots during the summer is essential for maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin. Here are some tips to help you prevent sun spots:

  • Sunscreen: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to all exposed areas of your skin, including your face, neck, and hands. Reapply every two hours, especially if you're sweating or swimming.

  • Seek shade: Limit your sun exposure, especially during peak hours (10 am to 4 pm), when the sun's rays are the strongest. Stay in the shade whenever possible, and wear protective clothing such as hats, long sleeves, and sunglasses.

So what do you do when you already have sun damage? The good news is there are ways to reverse that damage thanks to the latest laser technology.

The experts at ClarityMD can guide you through the process to learn which treatment is right for you, including Pico Genesis, IPL, and MoveoGlo. A Diamond Glow facial can also help reduce spots and pigment.

  • Pico Genesis: Pico Genesis is a laser treatment that uses picosecond laser technology to target pigmentation irregularities, including sun spots. It delivers ultra-short pulses of energy to break up pigmented areas without causing damage to the surrounding skin. The treatment stimulates collagen production, promoting overall skin rejuvenation.

  • IPL (Intense Pulsed Light): IPL is a non-invasive treatment that uses broad-spectrum light to target and reduce the appearance of sunspots and other skin discolorations. The light energy is absorbed by the pigmented areas, causing them to break down and fade over time. IPL can also help improve overall skin tone and texture.

  • MoveoGlo Laser: MoveoGlo is our latest laser treatment option. It’s a fractional laser treatment that targets sun spots and other pigmented lesions. It delivers precise laser energy to the affected areas, breaking up the excess pigment and stimulating collagen production. The treatment helps to even out skin tone and improve overall skin texture.

  • Diamond Glow: During a DiamondGlow facial, a specialized handpiece is used, which has a diamond-tipped wand that exfoliates the outermost layer of dead skin cells. This exfoliation process helps to remove impurities, unclog pores, and smooth the skin's texture. Simultaneously, the wand also suctions away the debris and impurities from the skin.

What sets DiamondGlow apart is its simultaneous infusion of specifically formulated serums into the skin. The treatment allows for a customized serum experience to address specific skin concerns, such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, dryness, or sun damage. The serums used can vary depending on individual needs but may contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, peptides, or antioxidants, which can help hydrate, brighten, and nourish the skin.

By combining exfoliation, extraction, and serum infusion, DiamondGlow aims to improve overall skin tone and texture, enhance radiance, and address specific skin concerns. However, it's important to note that the effectiveness of the treatment in reversing sun damage can vary depending on the severity of the damage and individual skin characteristics. For more extensive or severe sun damage, it may be necessary to consider additional or more targeted treatments.

Remember, prevention is your best defense but there are ways to correct existing damage. Specific treatment plans and recommendations may vary depending on individual factors, such as your skin type, the severity of sunspots, and your overall skin health. It is best to consult with a skincare expert at ClarityMD med spa to determine the most appropriate treatment options for you and to discuss potential risks and benefits.
