Sun Damage, Age Spots, Pigmentation

UV Overexposure

Sun damage occurs from UV overexposure over a period of time, sparking scar tissue build-up and increased thinning of the skin. Also called photodamage, sun damage occurs when the skin is overwhelmed by harmful UV rays, usually at peak hours of the day (11AM – 3PM), resulting in excess scar tissue and the loss of skin thickness. Usually, the signs of sun damage – brown spots, discolouration, redness, increased visible wrinkles, and rough leathery texture – occurs years after the damage has been done.

The Treatment

The degree of sun damage will be established through skin analysis using a Wood’s lamp. After a comprehensive consultation, Eliza will advise you on the appropriate corrective skincare and treatments. Lasers are effectively used for the treatment of pigmented lesions because they can selectively damage and destroy the darker area with no damage to the surrounding area. A powerful combination of IPL / laser skin rejuvenation treatments and CosMedix corrective skincare tailored specially for you will deliver great results and restore the health of your skin.

After a series of 3-5 of Eliza’s Photo Facial treatments using both laser and Intense Pulse Light technology in one appointment, your skin will look like a blank canvas. So, you would not need to wear concealer and foundation to cover skin imperfections such as age spots, broken capillaries, redness etc. Skin rejuvenation laser / anti-ageing IPL technology uses gentle light and thermal energy to promote collagen production in the dermis and restore skin to a more youthful state, demonstrating visible rejuvenation.

The same treatment can be used effectively on the neck, chest, hands etc., and will reduce redness and broken capillaries while improving tone and texture.

CosMedix corrective skincare helps photodamage by remodelling and rebuilding the skin through direct collagen and elastin stimulation. It targets UV-induced free radicals with powerful antioxidants, preventing further damage with broad-spectrum, natural sun care.
