Also known as sunburn or photo damage, over exposure to the sun can cause a cosmetic change in the skin’s appearance called photo ageing. Sun damage can also raise health concerns such as pre-cancerous lesions and skin cancer.
Among the symptoms of sun damage are:
- Fine and coarse wrinkles
- Rough skin
- Loose skin
- Mottled dark patches
- Coarseness on the back of the neck
- Dry and scaly skin
- A yellowish-coloured skin, known as solar elastosis
While some people recover from acne without any permanent effects, others are left with disfiguring acne scars, which are red or purple in colour and appear as raised lesions or deep pockmarks.
For the best results, we recommend a sun damage skin treatment programme of up to 18 months in Dubai. This should reduce the appearance of the scars and enable the skin to regain its normal colour.
Our range of sun damage treatments include:
- Laser treatments
- Chemical Peels
