Surprising Ways Summer Can Damage Your Skin
After a dark, cold winter, many patients cannot wait to get out into the fresh air and sunshine. Often, however, they fail to take the necessary precautions to protect their skin from the damage caused by overexposure to the sun, wind, heat, and other factors. By summer’s end, patients often see many of the following issues:
- Freckling – Those cute little spots on your nose and cheeks are caused by sun damage and they don’t go away. Over time, they can even make you look older than you are.
- Age Spots – Larger brown spots, sometimes referred to as age spots, are also caused by damage from the sun and can give the skin an uneven tone and the appearance of advanced aging, particularly on the hands and face.
- Broken Capillaries – Sun exposure and excessive alcohol consumption can cause blood vessels to rise to the surface of the skin and burst. This can leave the skin rough, red, and uneven in appearance.
- Irregular Pigmentation – Only in the movies does skin color evenly and without spottiness. Sun exposure often causes uneven pigmentation that can stay for months or years after the summer fun has ended.
What is BBL Photorejuvenation and How Can it Help?
BBL, or Broad Band Light photorejuvenation, uses high-intensity light pulses to treat skin damage by stimulating the collagen beneath the skin’s surface. Unlike laser treatment, BBL doesn’t disrupt the surface of the skin, so patients can return to the activities of daily living faster without embarrassing skin peeling or lengthy downtime. Multiple treatments are required for maximum effect and can, over a period of a few weeks, reduce or eliminate the appearance of brown spots, redness, uneven pigmentation, and sun damage due to over-exposure.
