Sun damage treatment In Norwich
A lot of people ignore the advice of ‘always apply high SPF cream’. Some people do apply but only sporadically. Years later the effects of the sun may start to show, and if you are reading this there’s a fair chance the effects are starting to show for you. Read on to find out what you can do about sun damaged skin.
What does a sun damage treatment involve?
Whilst nothing beats having a summer holiday away with friends and family, many people underestimate how damaging lying out in the sun can be. In addition to being a huge risk of developing cancer, the sun can cause slow but steady damage to your skin that doesn’t usually appear until years after the damage has been done. Such damage can manifest itself as strongly discoloured patches of skin known as actinic keratosis or lentigo, and they can be scaly and irritating.
Many treatments available today on the NHS if they can be accessed are extremely unpleasant, freezing with liquid nitrogen and applying painful creams. However, here at The Doctors Laser Clinic, we strive to provide an effective treatment for sun damage that’s both convenient and successful – and that’s exactly what we do!
Utilising the innovative Harmony XL Pro, iPixel and/or our CO2 laser, we can treat advanced skin damage and achieve skin rejuvenation.
Advanced Laser Technology
We use the Harmony XL Pro to treat pigmented lesions, which includes areas of darker skin caused by sun damage, such as those markings referred to as age spots, sun spots or liver spots. By targeting the excess of melanin or pigment in these lesions we are able to successfully clear them away.
We employ only the best qualified laser specialists to treat patients at the clinic. As well as this, we use only the best equipment on the market.
Frequently Asked Questions
During your consultation with us, we’ll answer any questions or concerns you may have.
The actual procedure of using the Harmony XL Pro iPixel laser may sound painful, but it’s definitely not as painful as it sounds. In fact, most clients simply report the experience as being a little uncomfortable. For a few hours after treatment, your skin may feel hot and irritated. This is completely normal but, to ease the hot sensation, fanning your skin or applying a cooling gel is likely to help significantly. For optimum results, 2 or 3 treatment sessions may be needed to eliminate the appearance of sun damage from your skin for good. However, this will naturally vary from client to client, and all depends on how your specific skin reacts to the laser.
