LASER SUN DAMAGE TREATMENT FOR SUN DAMAGED SKIN, PHOTOAGING

Dermatologists refer to sun damaged skin by several names, including photoaging, photodamage, solar damage, or sun damage.
Irregular areas of reddish-brown pigmentation characterize poikiloderma. It’s most common on the neck and upper chest in chronically sun-exposed areas.
It happens when ultraviolet light (UV) from the sun or tanning beds hits skin unprotected by sunscreen, causing DNA changes at a cellular level. Because sun damage happens in the deepest layers of the skin—the dermis—it can take years before the damage surfaces and becomes visible. The result of these UV light rays permanently damages the skin’s structure.
Signs of sun damage begin in the teens to early twenties. Symptoms of sun damaged skin include the following:

  • Wrinkling
  • Pigmentation changes such as age spots, liver spots (solar lentigines) and freckles
  • Loss of skin tone (decreased elasticity)
  • Rough, uneven skin texture
  • Broken capillaries (spider veins), usually around the nose and chest
  • Redness and blotchiness

What is Sun Damaged Skin and Best Laser Sun Damage Treatment

The term “Sun Damaged Skin” is frequently used by dermatologists and skincare experts, but what does it mean? A little explanation is required to comprehend the entire sun damage spectrum properly. Sun damage is a term used to describe a range of skin alterations that directly result from sun and UV radiation exposure. Skin darkening, freckling, and skin cancer are all possible side effects of this exposure. This form of damage is not simply caused by the sun. Indoor tanning has been a popular pastime in recent decades but has also been linked to significant skin damage. At the same time, Photo-aging is a word used to describe a variety of changes to the skin that might be related to UV exposure. Sun exposure is responsible for 90% of the changes we label sun damaged skin.

Types of UV rays that Cause Sun Damaged Skin

UVA and UVB are the two types of UV radiation that cause sun damage.

UVA (longer-wave) photons cause the skin to tan in an undesirable fashion, but they are not the rays that cause sunburn. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin, causing skin cancer and premature aging.

Sunburn is caused by UVB (shorter-wave) radiation, which also causes premature aging damage. Most skin malignancies are thought to be caused by UVB.

Consequences of Sun Damage

Has considerably more serious long-term skin consequences. Sun damage affects the skin’s capacity to keep its critical components looking young and healthy (antioxidants, essential fatty acids, ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins).

In addition to potentially fatal skin cancer, unprotected sun exposure from UVA and UVB radiation have long-term repercussions such as:

  • Skin discolorations and uneven tone.
  • Increased fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Dry, thin, creepy-looking skin.
  • Buildup on the surface layer results in dull, congested skin.

UVA sun damaged skin is considered more insidious because you don’t feel any pain or discomfort from it, yet it still hurts your skin. This produces skin irregularities over time, leading to the most severe forms of skin aging and a higher risk of skin cancer.

Laser For Sun Damage Treatment

What Laser Type is Used for Sun Damage Treatment?

To treat sun damaged skin, laser doctors employ a variety of laser skin resurfacing techniques. They are either ablative or non-ablative.

Ablative Lasers

Carbon dioxide (CO2) and erbium: yttrium aluminum garnet (Er: YAG) lasers are examples of ablative lasers. Long IR waves are emitted, which can melt superficial skin cells. They generate more inflammation than their non-ablative counterparts but produce better and more dramatic outcomes. More severe lesions, including as deep wrinkles and actinic keratoses, are best treated with ablative lasers.

 The Er: YAG laser employs an infrared wavelength absorbed more intensely by water. The CO2 laser causes less damage and is less precise. CO2 laser therapy, on the other hand, can be more successful for skin rejuvenation in the hands of a trained professional.

Ablative lasers usually necessitate injectable pain medication and a lengthier recovery period.

Non-Ablative Lasers

The pulsed dye laser (PDL), intense pulsed light (IPL), and non-ablative Fraxel laser are all non-ablative therapies. These methods use laser beams to target deeper areas in the skin while leaving much of the epidermis intact. Because the effects are gradual and mild, they are ineffective in curing severe sun damage.

Lasers that are not ablative do not produce open wounds or substantial pain. Their side effects are usually minor as well.

PDL is a hemoglobin-targeting agent that works well in places with many blood vessels.

Minimize the Visible Signs of Sun Damage

Although sun damage cannot be reversed, some products can help reduce the look of its aging effects in unexpected ways, such as:

  • Exfoliant with AHA or BHA: Removes the buildup of unhealthy skin caused by sun exposure, restoring smoothness, enhancing skin tone, and resulting in a more radiant complexion.
  • Retinol: Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and other symptoms of aging caused by the sun’s damaging effects.
  • Vitamin C brightens uneven skin tone caused by sun exposure dramatically.
  • Antioxidant serum: Protects skin from environmental damage and improves the effectiveness of SPF products.
 

The laser for sun damage treatment encourages tissue renewal and collagen synthesis by injuring the skin in a regulated way. Lasers produce single-colour, high-energy light beams. Lasers have precise chemical targets, unlike sunlight, which has a broad light spectrum and damages at random. The target molecules for skin resurfacing lasers are usually water, hemoglobin, and melanin.

IR light is absorbed by water. Longer IR rays are absorbed strongly and do not pass through the epidermis and upper dermis. Shorter ones, on the other hand, reach the lower dermis without harming the superficial layers.

Hemoglobin, the red pigment in your blood, absorbs visible light, remarkably green-yellow light. Melanin, the primary pigment in the epidermis, absorbs IR and visible UV wavelengths. Short IR lasers are minimally absorbed, making them suited for darker skin.
