“Fun in the sun” is a phrase that has been ingrained in the mind of Americans for generations. Think about your summers at the beach: hanging out with family, playing in the sand, and trying to get that perfect tan. The best times of your life might have occurred while being in the glow of the sun. But while the sun is the source of endless pleasure, it can also cause incredible harm to your skin. This is known as sun damage.
Sun damage is no joke. Over time, your skin can be harmed by exposure to UV (ultraviolet) rays transmitted by the sun. And being subjected to sunlight constantly can speed up physical signs of aging. So naturally, the more permanent forms of sun damage include wrinkles, moles, and dark spots. In the worst-case scenario, a person could even develop skin cancer due to prolonged exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays.
If you are noticing the effects of sun damage on your own skin, you might be asking yourself one important question: What can I do to treat the damage that’s already been done? Well, luckily, you’ve asked this question at the right time in human history. Until recently, treatments have been complicated and their results have been so-so. That’s why we are proud to tell you about our revolutionary treatments that we have available at Lux: A Medical Spa.
For example, the Sciton Halo treatment is appropriately named because it restores your natural, healthy glow. The procedure utilizes a safe laser to heal skin that’s been damaged by years of exposure to the rays of the sun. This healing process is accomplished by targeting damaged skin at specific depths — resulting in increased effectiveness. Using this method, the treatment significantly reduces pigmentation caused by years of sun damage. And what’s more, it also activates your body’s regenerative system — leading to greater elasticity and resilience for your skin.
