Procedures That Improve Sun-Damaged Skin

SunburnThe sun’s UV rays can be highly damaging to the skin. Over the course of your life, damage from unprotected sun exposure accumulates in the skin, leading to redness, hyperpigmentation, rough skin texture, and wrinkles. Thankfully, there are many non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can help heal sun-damaged skin so that you can regain a radiant, youthful complexion. 

Celluma Light Panel

Celluma light panels are a form of LED light therapy that can effectively heal a range of skin issues, including sun damage. LED light panels emit three different types of light: infrared, red, and blue light. Red light is particularly helpful for sun-damaged skin, as it lessens inflammation and signs of aging, which can be caused prematurely by sun damage. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, which helps to naturally restore the skin’s structure and tone. 


In microneedling, a sterile pin is used to make controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. This process triggers the skin’s natural healing process and increases collagen production. The pin also delivers a hyaluronic acid and vitamin C solution to the skin; hyaluronic acid helps keep the skin healthy and hydrated, while the vitamin C solution provides a dose of antioxidants that protect the skin from damaging free radicals stemming from UV ray exposure. The microneedling process opens up the skin for maximum absorption of this solution to further aid in the healing process for sun-damaged skin. 

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels help the skin rid itself of dull, dead skin cells and replace them with new, healthy cells. This speeds up the skin’s natural healing process and promotes the regeneration of damaged skin. The trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel is a medium-depth peel that’s particularly effective for sun-damaged skin. This treatment removes the dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin and promotes new cell growth, which diminishes signs of sun damage such as discoloration, rough texture, and wrinkles.
