It’s true that when it comes to sun damage, prevention is better than cure, but it’s NEVER too late to improve the health of your skin.
Hopefully, by now you’ll know that when it comes to skin health, the sun is sadly not our friend. UVA ages us, UVB burns us, and HEV light from screens can de-nature our youthful collagen so we are not even safe indoors from the ageing effects of light.
Don’t despair, there is a broad-spectrum SPF to suit every skin type. Whether you’re oily, dry, looking for some coverage or simply wanting the highest level of protection, we can help you meet your SPF match. ZO SPF products have a 12 hour slow release technology, which in the UK means that once a day application is adequate.
So, now we’ve got your ongoing protection sorted, how about the historical impact of too much sun?
One of the most obvious complaints from sun exposure is Hyperpigmentation, causing uneven skin tone and dark spots which can make us look much older than we are. Hormonal or inflammatory issues can also contribute to this condition. We have several treatment options available to tackle this, including a programme of prescription strength ZO products which can be highly effective. Skin peels, IPL, and Tixel with a brightening solution can also be used to even skin tone and give a fresher look.
Over time, sun exposure can also create textural issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, and dehydrated looking skin. Profhilo treatment can inject a boost of much-needed moisture beneath the skin, as well as promoting better collagen production. Fractora and Tixel are also excellent treatment options which create controlled trauma to prompt healing and improvement of elastin and collagen for a more youthful appearance.
As harmful light can de-nature our collagen, we often notice skin laxity at a deeper level. Collagen supplements from ZENii can help this as well as non-surgical skin tightening with Ultherapy and Morpheus8. Firming Serum from ZO Skin Health is a brilliant topical product which can also improve laxity.
For all concerns associated with sun damage, we also highly recommend Celluma healing lights which offer some incredible benefits on many levels. Perfect in addition to any of the options above, or just as a stand-alone relaxing experience!
