What to do with sun-damaged skin?

Too much sun can cause serious harm to your skin.  Treatments and products from Darlinghurst Dermatologist can help minimise and treat the damage.  The most important aspect of treating sun-damaged skin is sun protection and sun avoidance. Evidence suggests that skin can repair itself to a large extent if sun avoidance and rigourous sunscreen use are practiced. Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids exfoliate sun-damaged layers and restore skins moisture levels. 

Topical Vitamin A is an important adjunct in the treatment of sun-damaged skin, helping to repair cells mutated by UV light.  Anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants also play an important part in preventing free radical damage caused by the sun. Weekly and monthly peels are of great benefit in resurfacing sun-damaged skin, replacing damaged layers with a fresher smoother clearer surface.
