Six Cosmetic Skin Treatments Suitable For Summer:
It is no secret that direct, unprotected sunlight exposure plays a major role in prematurely aging our skin. The sun emits three different wavelengths of Ultraviolet (UV) light, UVA, UVB and UVC, all of which are absorbed into the skin. In the short-run, exposure to each of these types of rays causes tanning, freckles and mole development, and sunburns. In the long-term, UV exposure can manifest as skin cancer, hyperpigmentation or melasma (skin discoloration), blood vessel dilation, skin dullness, and wrinkle development.
Most widely used non-surgical anti-aging treatments such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and micro-needling work by inducing a controlled injury to the skin. This controlled skin injury sets in your body’s natural healing response by inducing new collagen and healthy skin tissue regeneration to heal itself, which is responsible for the rejuvenating results from the treatment. However, during this initial healing phase, your skin is extremely sensitive and is more prone to UV radiation absorption.
The last thing you want after your cosmetic skin treatment is to end up with brown discoloration, dull skin surface, or hyperpigmented scarring. That is why it is ESSENTIAL to choose your summer skin treatments smartly and to judiciously practice sun protection after your cosmetic skin treatment as recommended by your treatment provider.
