We all know UV rays can damage our skin. What many people don’t know, however, is that much of that damage stems from our childhood and early adolescent years — it just doesn’t show up until many years later. And when it finally comes to light, it usually isn’t a look we’re keen on keeping.
At Arijai Aesthetics, we’re here to help you feel great about your skin. We know sun damage can make that difficult, which is why we specialize in several cosmetic treatments that can help repair it. Whether you’re looking to minimize the appearance of sunspots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, redness, or uneven skin tone, we can help.
Read on to learn about four effective treatments for sun-damaged skin.
1. SkinPen Microneedling
Sun damage, aging, and complexion abnormalities can do a number on your facial skin, but with the right tools, you can absolutely fight back. The SkinPen is one of those tools.
This unique, minimally invasive treatment offers a revolutionary approach to anti-aging skin care by stimulating your body’s endogenous healing mechanisms. So how does it work?
Just as your body naturally heals a scrape or cut, it can naturally heal your facial skin, too, but first, the immune system must kickstart the process. That’s where microneedling comes in.
By creating tiny micro-injuries in the surface of the skin, the SkinPen stimulates a minor immune response. And it’s this natural bodily response that encourages increased collagen production, enhanced skin cell turnover, and rapid cell regeneration.
With SkinPen treatments, you can expect:
- Diminished appearance of sun damage
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved skin texture and more consistent coloration
- Minimized appearance of scarring
- Reduction in skin laxity
Ever had microdermabrasion treatments? Were you happy with the results? Then you’ll love Dermalinfusion. As an alternative to microdermabrasion, Dermalinfusion delivers dramatic skin resurfacing through its unique three-in-one technology.
In fact, many recipients of the treatment prefer it over microdermabrasion! Why? Because, unlike traditional microdermabrasion, Dermalinfusion simultaneously exfoliates the skin, extracts impurities, and infuses the complexion with individually customized, condition-specific serums.
Essentially, this all-in-one treatment is the next generation of microdermabrasion, which works to correct:
- Sun damage
- Fine line and wrinkles
- Minor scarring
- Dry skin
- Age spots and dark spots
The best part? The treatment is non-invasive and highly effective for all but the most sensitive skin types!
If you’re ready to reveal a rejuvenated, glowing, healthy complexion, Dermalinfusion can deliver it.
The SaltFacial is a rejuvenating, three-step treatment that’s safe for all skin types and can be performed anywhere on the body. It harnesses the healing power of mineral-rich sea salt, skin-healing nutrients, LED phototherapy, and cavitation ultrasound to produce lasting improvements in the appearance of sun damage.
Whether you’re dealing with rough skin texture, uneven tone, dryness, large pores, fine lines, or wrinkles, this treatment can help. Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Resurface
The SaltFacial begins with manual exfoliation using one of nature’s most mineral-rich and healing elements: organic sea salt. Your provider will use SaltFacial’s positive pressure applicator tool to evenly and gently resurface the skin throughout the treatment area.
This step not only smooths your skin but also preps it to absorb the skin-healing nutrients your provider will apply during step two.
Step 2: Replenish
The second step in the SaltFacial involves replenishing the vital nutrients your skin has lost over time. Your provider will use aesthetic cavitation ultrasound to increase circulation while deeply infusing your skin with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to promote healing and renewal.
Step 3: Rejuvenate and Renew
The final step in the SaltFacial is LED phototherapy, which encourages collagen production while reducing redness and accelerating skin healing.
LED light therapy also helps smooth rough skin, enhance circulation, and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Also known as dermaplaning, this treatment helps minimize the appearance of sun damage via manual exfoliation. The procedure uses a medical-grade scalpel to carefully remove the uppermost layer of the skin (including tiny vellus hairs) throughout the treatment area.
This advanced form of exfoliation not only removes dead, damaged skin cells but also helps smooth rough texture.
Because dermablading effectively eliminates the dead skin cells that contribute to a dull, lackluster complexion, it delivers brighter, healthier-looking skin after just one treatment. It also helps the skin better absorb topical products, such as retinol and vitamin C, which can further reduce the appearance of sun damage.
Keep in mind that although there are do-it-yourself dermablading tools available, performing the treatment on yourself can be risky. What’s more, you likely won’t end up with the kind of results you’d get from a professional.
