Sum Damage Q & A

So Cal Body Institute

What is sun damage?

Your skin needs ultraviolet light (UV) to help it produce vitamin D. As protection against UV rays, your outer layer of skin contains the pigment melanin.

When you have too much sun exposure, UV rays penetrate your protective outer layer of skin and reach deeper layers, damaging or killing skin cells. The less melanin you have, the higher your risk of developing sun damage.

UV light can take a toll on your skin and leads to the appearance of aging. Some signs of sun damage to the skin include:

  • Changes in texture, such as wrinkles
  • Pigment changes, such as freckles and age spots
  • White spots on the arms, legs, and hands
  • Redness on the neck

To reduce your risks of sun damage, protect your skin with full-spectrum sunscreens and wear hats and cover-ups when outdoors. To treat existing sun damage, you can turn to So Cal Body Institute for PicoSure® treatments to erase the signs of sun damage.

How can PicoSure eliminate signs of sun damage?

PicoSure is a gentle laser therapy treatment that uses heat to destroy damaged tissue and stimulate your body’s natural healing response. As your body heals, elastin and collagen production increases in the area. The result is a smoother, more youthful complexion.

PicoSure can be used all over your body and can treat several problems associated with sun damage, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Age spots
  • Liver spots

When used in combination with medical grade skin care from Obagi® PicoSure can provide great results.

What can I expect during my appointment?

Your PicoSure treatment can happen over your lunch break; it only takes 15-30 minutes. Plus, the procedure is gentle on the skin and require no downtime.

You may experience mild redness, but this fades quickly, usually within 24 hours. Depending on the extent of your sun damage, you may require multiple sessions to reach ideal results.

In combination with your PicoSure treatments, So Cal Body Institute recommends the use of the Obagi Medical skin care products. These include hydrating facial moisturizers, sun protection products, gentle rejuvenating systems, and more.

How much does it cost to remove sun damage?

The price can vary based on the severity of the sun damage. So Cal Body Institute recommends a minimum of 3 treatments and has a “pay as you go” option, or you can buy a package of multiple treatments to take advantage of big savings.

So Cal Body Institute will work with you closely to outline a treatment strategy to eliminate the signs of your sun damage. Call or schedule a free consultation online today.
