Can You Reverse Sun Damage to Skin?

If you suffer from complexion issues caused by sun exposure, our skincare experts at Artemedica are here to help. Read on to learn the four ways we can help improve and reverse the signs of sun damage to your skin!

4 ways to reverse the sun damage to your skin

1. Eliminate Sun Spots with Laser Pigmentation Treatments at Artemedica

If you spend any amount of time outside without sun protection, your body will naturally defend itself against exposure by producing different pigmentations. For many people, this can lead to hyperpigmentation – also known as “age spots” – which is a common condition in which patches of skin become darker in color. 

With Laser Pigmentation Treatments, our skincare experts at Artemedica will use an advanced laser to reverse the signs of sun damage, resulting in more even skin complexion. For many people struggling with an uneven, or blotchy complexion caused by sun exposure, pigmentation treatments are a safe and relatively painless solution.

2. Improve Pigmentation, Tone, and Texture with Clear + Brilliant Laser Treatments at Artemedica

Clear and Brilliant is a gentle treatment that utilizes advanced fractional laser technology to target the damaged layers of the skin and stimulate new tissue growth. With Clear + Brilliant laser treatments, the appearance of pigmentation and your skin tone and texture can be improved.
