Sun Damage

Sun Damage
Sun damage is a leading cause of wrinkles and discoloured skin and increases the appearance of age spots, freckles and moles.

Treatments for Sun Damage

Sun damage increases pigmentation of the skin as it accumulates with sun exposure over the years. It can be cosmetically undesired and in some cases dangerous and increase the signs of ageing as UV radiation destroys elastin and collagen, accelerating the development of wrinkles.

The appearance of sun damage can be reduced with the resurfacing of the skin with lasers, peels, or retinol-based products. We conduct a SkinObserv Analysis to thoroughly record your skin’s current condition as this technology reveals all signs of sun damage on the surface of the skin and below.

Our aestheticians and doctors will determine the best treatment options for you to restore skin. Our doctors will send samples of suspicious signs of sun damage to the lab for histology to detect abnormal cells. It is always recommended to apply an SPF50 daily.

SYMPTOMS of Sun Damage

The symptoms of sun damage can appear as poor skin quality and dryness, skin laxity, pigmentation and an increase of fine lines and wrinkles.

"I saw Dr Weber for a private consult following
a misdiagnosis of depression by my GP.
Dr Weber suggested it sounded like perimenopause
and moved me off antidepressants
and on to HRT. I'm back to my old self
and can't thank him enough!"
