Let’s face it, some of us have acquired some pretty careless sunbathing habits throughout the years. It’s only until recently that the vast majority of Americans have shifted to more sun-savvy routines. Sales numbers expose the truth behind our newly found enthusiasm for sun care products, with an emphasis on broad spectrum UV-A and UV-B protection.

Skin care companies have started to roll out premium products that have zinc oxide in them, which is said to yield much better results than traditional drugstore sunscreens. Unlike chemical sunscreens, which absorb UV rays, zinc oxide products create a barrier that reflects the light so it doesn’t reach the skin. Another upside to zinc oxide sunscreen is that they are non-irritating, non-allergenic, and non-comedogenic.

The relationship between over-exposure to sun and skin cancer is now undeniable. Global awareness has led to a spike in sales of preventative products like sunscreen and UV protective clothing, but there is also an increased demand for laser rejuvenation and skin resurfacing treatments to combat the signs of prolonged sun exposure.

Protecting yourself from the sun is always encouraged, but is it actually possible to reverse the signs of sun damage and undo the harm we’ve unknowingly inflicted upon ourselves? The laser rejuvenation specialists at LDI think you can.

Reverse Sun Damage!

The Laser & Dermatology Institute of California (LDI) is on the cutting edge of laser resurfacing technology and only employ the very latest in skin rejuvenation techniques and equipment. LDI has seen amazing results in clients that have endured decades of unbridled sun exposure.

At LDI, we offer radio-frequency sun damage skin treatment that applies radio-frequency energy to safely and effectively target damaged tissues. Options in this area include:

  • Forma: By directing RF energy into deep layers of skin, skin tone and texture can be improved. The treatment can be used to reverse the effects of sun damage and aging as well. Requiring no downtime, Forma leaves only some redness after treatment, which goes away a few hours after the procedure.
  • 1064nm: An Nd:YAG laser can break up pigments within the skin and even stimulate collagen production to improve elasticity. It can reach deep layers without touching the top layers of skin, leaving no damage behind. A YAG laser can be safely used on sun exposed skin, so is suited for sun spot removal.

Topical antioxidants have claimed that they can reverse the signs of sun damage, but credible research is weak at best. Some products purport that they can repair the DNA deep beneath the skin’s surface and undo the damage made by free radicals and UV rays. While a good skin care regimen is always a positive, topical antioxidants are unlikely to make much of a difference for significant sun damage. You’d probably garner better results if you were to eat a diet rich in antioxidants.
