Fall is the Time to Treat Sun Damage

Sep 7th, 2018 In: Skin Care

Summer has come and gone, and it’s time to put away your whites and bring out those clothes that have been in the back of your closet that will keep you warm. But as fall starts to bring cooler weather, some remnants of the summer just won’t fade like your tan is starting to. All your summer fun might have left you with dark spots, fine lines and other signs of sun damage. It’s possible to improve the situation and we can help. Sun damage can be caused by spending time at the pool or beach without adequate sun protection and cumulative sun exposure from just walking to your car.  You might have been careful this summer, but you may still might have some damage-you need to be protected. 

Sun damaged skin typically shows the characteristics of dryness, sunburn, dark spots, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, blood vessels and actinic keratosis (small bumps within the skin only removable by medication). Repeated exposure to sun-damaged skin over a lifetime can increase your chances of getting skin cancer. The harmful UVA and UVB rays that are found in sunlight can burn and damage the delicate skin cells. Over time, this sun damage causes premature aging, dull, dry skin and discolorations.

We have lasers which are an effective treatment to turn back signs of sun damage, and Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center has a number of different approaches.

Lasers can also treat a lesser-known effect of sun damage — tiny broken blood vessels around the nose and middle of the face. The sun breaks down the collagen that supports these vessels, causing them to crack, which then leads to visible redness of the skin.

Our laser treatments promote skin rejuvenation and increases collagen which is a perfect boost to complexion. You want to get beyond the surface, which chemical peels address and lasers make that leap inward for you. They basically put down fresh, healthy skin cells and collagen. 

Through the use of laser skin treatments from our Winston Salem office, we can help you actually reverse the damage caused by the sun’s rays. You’ll look years younger, and your skin will be healthier. Laser skin resurfacing removes the layer of damaged cells, allowing unblemished skin from beneath to shine through instead. The result takes years off your appearance, and reduces the potential for more serious skin conditions down the road.

Schedule your appointment today with Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center when considering any kind of serious treatments for sun damage. It’s best to talk to a doctor who will be able to provide recommendations based on your skin.

Please call Carolina Laser and Cosmetic Center, we can help explain the options for reviving tired, sun-damaged skin.

Tattoos have always fascinated me. When I was growing up only sailors and bikers had tattoos. Then came the nineties when it became fashionable to proudly display a “tramp stamp”, barbed wire, or Chinese character tattoos. Do you remember dolphin ankle designs? Then came the 2000’s and anklet status, and belly button tattoos were seen everywhere!  Zodiac signs and one word tattoos such as “Worthy” appear.

I asked my co worker why one would get a tattoo and she explained to me it is a “new generation memorial” I asked why you can’t buy a necklace with Batman on it instead of getting it etched in your skin permanently? She replied “, you can lose a necklace but I will remember the day my boyfriend and I did this... Read more

Dear Dr. Anne,

After incorporating a healthier diet and more exercise into my daily life, I am still struggling with some stubborn fat in my thighs and buttocks. I would really like to start the new year off with more self confidence. Do you have any suggestions for firming and tightening these stubborn areas?

Leslie L., Winston-Salem, NC

Dear Leslie,

You are on the right track incorporating a better diet and more exercise into your daily life! I applaud you for the changes you have made. But sometimes you just cannot eliminate localized areas of fat with diet and exercise alone, and the thigh area is a typical problem area for women.
