Addressing Signs of Sun Damage with Microdermabrasion

Sun damage to the skin frequently shows up in the form of spots that are darker than the surrounding skin. Many people refer to these places as sunspots or age spots, even though their appearance has more to do with exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays than with a person’s age.

Being exposed to the sun stimulates the body to produce more melanin, which is what gives the skin its pigment. It is also what makes the skin tan after time in the sun. The production of melanin is the body’s way of protecting the skin from damage caused by the harmful rays of the sun. The result is typically an even tan. Over time, however, the overproduction of melanin can lead to the development of sunspots.

Microdermabrasion is a popular and effective method for removing signs of sun damage from the skin. It should not be confused with dermabrasion, which is much more aggressive. Microdermabrasion is done using a special diamond-tipped instrument that gently removes the outer layer of skin. The device also contains a vacuum that works to remove the dead skin cells and stimulate blood circulation. This leaves the skin looking softer and brighter.

For the first day or so following a microdermabrasion treatment, the skin might feel the way it does after a mild sunburn. Otherwise, most people do not experience side effects. You should avoid exposure to the sun as much as possible for a few days after your treatment session. You might also use moisturizing cream to soothe the skin. Sunscreen should be used whenever you are out in the sun.

Microdermabrasion treatments are done in the comfort of our office. It is a good option for people who do not want a type of treatment that requires a period of downtime for recovery. Those receiving microdermabrasion treatments for sun damage can resume their normal activities right away.

If you are experiencing the effects of too much exposure to the sun over the years and have sunspots on your skin as a result, you should talk to the team at Paradise Med Spas of Texas about the feasibility of using microdermabrasion to remove these spots. During the consultation at our office in Lubbock, you can have all your questions answered, and it will be explained to you how the treatment can be of benefit in your particular case. Contact us today to schedule an appointment to learn more about microdermabrasion.
