Fighting Sun Damage
The skin reveals sun damage only after many years after it was exposed to the harmful rays of the sun.
At CosMedics we are also a Medically directed spa and laser center. We offer gentle lasers that treat fine lines, discoloration and increased pore size that is the result of sun exposure. Sun damage is more prominent in the areas that receive more exposure such as the forehead, nose and hands.
Of course protection is the best defence to sun damage. While we are enjoying the long awaited dog days of summer, we must not skip the sunscreen. Using sunscreen diligently from childhood onwards will prevent much of the damage that occurs. Here in Edmonton, the ozone depletion increases our risk of sun damage and cancer, ozone degradation is worse in late summer and early fall.
However, for many of us, the damage has already occurred. So for those who are now seeing the effects of sun damage, there is a solution.
