Skin Sun Damage Treatment

Skin Sun Damage Treatment


How Does Sun Damage the Skin?

Sun damage, also known as photoaging, is caused by prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. These rays penetrate the skin and cause changes at a cellular level, leading to:

  • Sunspots: Also known as age spots or liver spots, these are flat, brown spots that develop on areas frequently exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands and shoulders.
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: UV rays break down collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, leading to premature aging signs like fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Uneven Skin Tone: Sun exposure can cause hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone, resulting in dark patches and a blotchy appearance.
  • Skin Texture Changes: Sun damage can lead to rough, leathery skin and enlarged pores.

Advanced Sun Damage Treatments

At Cupid Lips, we offer a range of non-surgical treatments to effectively reduce the appearance of sun damage and rejuvenate your skin.

Sun Spot Removal in Los Angeles with Laser Therapy

Laser treatments are highly effective for targeting and removing sunspots, promoting a clearer and more even skin tone.

Fraxel Dual Laser

  • How It Works: The Fraxel Dual Laser creates microscopic treatment zones in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin renewal. This process helps to reduce the appearance of sunspots, fine lines, and other signs of sun damage.
  • Benefits: Effective for treating various sun damage issues, minimal downtime, and long-lasting result.

Clear + Brilliant® Laser

  • How It Works: This gentle fractional laser treatment improves skin tone and texture, reduces pigmentation, and enhances overall skin radiance. The laser creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response and stimulating collagen production.
  • Benefits: Minimal downtime, quick recovery, and effective for maintaining youthful radiant skin.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial

IPL Photofacial is a non-invasive treatment that uses broad-spectrum light to target and treat pigmentation and sun damage. 

  • How It Works: The IPL device emits multiple wavelengths of light that penetrate the skin and are absorbed by pigmented cells. This light energy breaks down the pigmentation, allowing it to be naturally eliminated by the body.
  • Benefits: Effective for reducing sunspots, improving skin tone, and promoting a clearer complexion with minimal downtime 

Chemical Peels

  • Chemical peels involve applying a solution to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and peel off, revealing new, healthier skin underneath. 
  • Types of Peels: We offer a range of chemical peels, from mild to deep, depending on the severity of your sun damage and skin type. Mild peels use alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs), while deeper peels use stronger acids to address more significant pigmentation and texture issues.
  • Benefits: Reduces the appearance of sunspots, improves skin texture, and promotes a brighter, more even complexion.
