What is Sun Damage?

Sun damage, often called photoaging, refers to the harmful effects the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays have on the skin. It’s a cumulative process, meaning the damage builds over time, starting from your first sun exposure in childhood. While sunlight is vital for vitamin D production, overexposure can lead to premature skin ageing, discolouration, and, in severe cases, skin cancer.

What Are the Signs That I Have Sun Damage?

Signs of sun damage can vary among patients, and common indications include the presence of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Skin may appear rough, leathery, or have a blotchy, uneven tone. You might notice freckles, sunspots, or other changes in skin texture. More severe signs include the formation of actinic keratosis, a precancerous skin condition characterised by crusty, scaly patches. If you identify any of these signs, seeking professional advice is essential.

What to Expect During and After Treatment

The Sun Damage Treatment Process

Each treatment begins with a comprehensive consultation to understand your skin concerns and goals. Our expert practitioners will then create a personalised treatment plan. We apply advanced techniques to target and treat the damaged skin areas during the procedure. Depending on the chosen treatment, this may involve using a laser device or applying a chemical solution.

Post-Treatment Care and Results

After treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling, which usually subsides within a few days. We provide specific aftercare instructions to expedite healing and optimise results. Regular use of a high-factor sunblock is crucial to protect the treated skin. Over time, you will notice skin texture, tone, and overall appearance improvements.

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.

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.

Treatment sessions vary based on the extent of sun damage and the chosen procedure. On average, a session may take between 30 minutes to an hour.

The number of required sessions depends on the severity of sun damage and the treatment method. Some patients may see significant improvements after one session, while others may need multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart for optimal results.

At The Doctors Laser Clinic, patient comfort is a priority. Most treatments for sun damage involve minimal discomfort. We utilise numbing creams or local anaesthesia to ensure a comfortable experience. Any mild discomfort felt post-treatment can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relief.
