Sun Damage and What to Do About It
Aging of the skin is caused by many factors, age being one just of them. What you may not realize is that age is only the tip of the iceberg. One of the biggest contributors to skin aging is the sun and UV exposure. These two far surpass the effects of time and genetics on the skin’s appearance. Research estimates that up to 80% of the visible skin aging you see is actually caused by UV damage. If you want youthful, beautiful skin, its time to make some changes in your sun habits.
One of the best things you can do for your skin is to limit sun exposure where you can. UV rays are at their daily peak during the middle of the day, so try to reduce time outside during this window when you can. Cover up, use a hat, and wear layers. If there’s shade nearby, seek it out to reduce your skin’s UV exposure.
Avoiding the sun entirely isn’t possible or practical, especially with so many beaches nearby. In addition to reduction, we also encourage protection. Daily sunscreen use can dramatically reduce the effects of the sun on the skin. When you’re swimming or enjoying a day in the sun, reapply sun protection often, at least every two hours. We can help you choose an effective SPF product from one of the high-quality skincare lines we carry.
These steps will protect your skin from future sun damage, but if you’re like many of our patients, sun damage has already occurred. Our skin rejuvenation treatments help to restore the skin’s appearance, alleviating signs of sun damage that include wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and sagging. Think of them as a time machine for your skin.
Our Skin Rejuvenation Solutions
Call our office at 561-503-2700 to learn more about your options for skin rejuvenation in Southeast Florida. We offer many non-surgical and minimally invasive treatments to enhance the skin’s appearance including:
Skin grows in layers. The outermost layer is comprised of dead, damaged skin cells that have already done their job. The innermost layer is made up of freshly growing skin. A chemical peel helps patients to shed the damaged skin and jumpstart healing and regeneration in the newer layers. A mild peel only works superficially, removing imperfections at the very surface of the skin. Medium and deep peels offer more dramatic results but may come with side effects. Chemical peels are a time-tested, highly effective option for improving and rejuvenating the skin.
With lighter depth peels, we often recommend a series of treatments. Deeper peels may achieve good results in only 1-2 treatments. Chemical peels are also effective for maintaining the results achieved through laser rejuvenation or surgical procedures, like a facelift.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Extensive damage needs a powerful solution, like laser skin resurfacing. Concentrated laser energy targets skin damage and initiates healing within the skin. Results from our laser treatments are some of the most dramatic skin transformations that we offer. Dr. Farber can help you choose an appropriate laser treatment option for your skin concerns.
Laser treatments can improve overall skin quality of focus on specific issues. Ask us about our cosmetic laser options for treating spider veins, age spots, acne scars, freckles, wrinkles, and more. We love pairing laser with surgical treatments. Surgical rejuvenation rebuilds strong support for the skin while a laser treatment improves the quality and appearance of the skin itself.
The skin has an amazing ability to heal and regenerate. Microneedling uses thin needles to systematically damage the skin. This damage initiates a healing process within the skin, leading to rapid rejuvenation.
One of the biggest benefits of microneedling is collagen remodeling. This treatment boosts collagen and elastin production. Increased collagen levels translate to a thicker, more youthful skin texture.
Don’t forget about Botox® and dermal fillers. These injectable treatments are some of the most popular treatments in the aesthetics industry and at our Florida practice. Injectable fillers add volume to the skin and are used to smooth lines, creases, and wrinkles. Botox relaxes expression wrinkles where they form, in the muscle located just under the skin. These injectable products are administered with a quick, in-office treatment that requires no downtime. They offer temporary results, maintainable with follow-up injections a couple of times each year.
