Now that summer’s ending, you’ve probably noticed various skin problems due to sun damage. You’re not alone though.
It’s common for people to struggle with sun-damaged skin after lounging in the sun all day without proper sun protection. Left unaddressed, these can result in long-term skin issues and health conditions.
Fortunately, CLAREBELLA aesthetics offers Fraxel Dual Laser, a perfect laser treatment for sun-damaged skin.
Let’s take a look.
Signs of Sun-Damaged Skin
Excessive UV rays and sun exposure can lead to skin damage. Oftentimes, these are manifested through the following conditions:
This is the most common problem during summer. Aside from redness, you will also experience pain, swelling, and peeling of the skin.
Also known as an age spot, sunspots develop on the sun-exposed areas of the skin particularly the face, hands, and shoulders.
Fine lines and wrinkles are also common results of excessive UV radiation from the sun. This results in premature aging due to the accelerated breakdown of collagen and elastin.
Uneven Skin Tone
Sun exposure also causes uneven pigmentation. This is called hyperpigmentation wherein some skin areas are darker or redder than others.
There’s also melasma, the appearance of brown or gray-brown patches on the cheeks, forehead, or upper lip. Without proper protection, sun exposure can exacerbate melasma.
Lastly, sun damaged skin is usually characterized by dehydrated, dry, and flaky skin. This is because excessive sun can deplete your skin’s natural moisture.

After the treatment, patients should expect around 5-7 days of downtime. This will give your body enough time to recover and rejuvenate.
