Sunscreen and the Remedies When You Don’t Use It



In today’s world, sunscreen should be part of your daily beauty regimen. The sun is useful and harmful at the same time. Too much sunlight can damage unprotected skin. Eventually, skin that is exposed to too much sunlight every day can suffer from early aging and from skin diseases.

Now, if you are guilty of forgetting to apply generous amounts of sunscreen on your skin, the sun may have already harmed it. Don’t worry. There are several treatments that you can use to fix skin damaged by the sun. Plus, there are also several products that can reverse the damage of skin. These products include prescription drugs, over the counter medications, and medical procedures. Just be sure to have a talk with your doctor before using these solutions on your skin.

  • Tretinoin gels and creams

Tretinoin gels and creams can reverse the effects of too much exposure to the sun in as short as a few weeks. Avoiding pigmentation from exposure to the sun can be lessened through the action of these creams to inhibit abnormal melanin formation. When these products are used for an extended period, they can also lessen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

  • Tazarotene

Tazarotene is one among the new products that can reverse the effects of the sun on skin. Thus, chronic photo aging and moderate sun damage can be fixed. Additionally, Tazarotene can also be used by patients with acne and psoriasis.

  • Chemical peels

Chemical peels are one of the common procedures used to get rid of the upper layers of the skin harmed by sun damage. When the top layer is removed, the bottom layer can produce new skin cells. Superficial chemical peels make use of glycolic acid preparations. Deeper peels use tricholoracetic acid and phenol. However, deeper peels can produce pigment changes and scarring. But all in all, chemical peels can get rid of age spots, uneven pigmentation and fine lines.

  • Laser surgery

Laser surgery, also called dermabrasion, gets rid of the skin surface through mechanical peeling achieved by a special wavelength of light. Although this is an effective treatment, it is not as commonly used as before because of the length of time it takes treated skin to heal. Plus, the appearance of cheaper and more effective procedures also contribute to its diminishing popularity.

  • Skin fillers

Collagen or Hyaluronic acid can also be injected into wrinkled or sagging skin as well as in deep lines for a smoother look. Skin fillers require several sessions as the effects can go disappear after a few months. There are also patients who report redness and swelling after injections which often disappear when these patients ask for additional treatments.

Botox leads the muscles under the skin producing the fine lines and wrinkles to become inactive. Botox is usually injected in the forehead area. Although Botox is not a treatment for sun damage, per se, it can reduce the appearance of lines in the face that may have been brought about by sun damage. Like skin fillers, Botox treatments need multiple sessions spaced regularly to get the best results.

Aside from treatments and products, an eyelid lift in Sparks NV and sclerotherapy for Virginia City NV are also effective treatments for treating sun-damaged skin of residents who live east of the Sierra Nevada range. Now, if you want to get any of these treatments, you need to consult your doctor or dermatologist. There are actually many patients coming from the Central Nevada region who get laser facials for Carson City patients and enjoy cheaper costs than the usual face lift costs in Washoe County. What’s more? These treatments could even bring better results if the sun damage is not that serious.
