Not Just a Day at the Beach: Reversing the Effects of Sun Damage

Nowadays, most people are aware of the damage that sunlight can have on their skin. Over-exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can result in serious health conditions such as skin cancer; and as a result, it’s advisable to stay protected when out and about in the summer.

However, whilst this advice is helpful for young people, it’s not so helpful for those who have already spent many of their years sun-worshipping on the beach, or whiling away the hours on a tanning bed. Whilst your love of the sun may not have resulted in any permanent damage to your health, it may have left you with aging skin, which is likely to be adding years to your appearance.

Rewinding Time: Getting Rid of the Effects of Sun Damage

Fortunately, thanks to significant advances in cosmetic surgery, it is now possible to reverse the effects of sun damage and rejuvenate your skin.

Cosmetic fillers are an excellent way of plumping and softening hard lines caused by over-exposure to UV rays. Injected into the dermis, which is the layer of skin underneath the visible layer on the top, it provides support for the structure of the skin, reducing the appearance of even deeper lines.

Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

As with any type of cosmetic treatment, there’s always a certain level of risk. However, dermal fillers are considered to be one of the safest treatments currently available. They use only natural products, so the chances of having a reaction are virtually eliminated.

How Long Do Results Last?

How long the results last depends largely on the type of dermal filler you decide to use, and also the nature of your lines. Some treatments can last as long as 18 months.

Unlike face lifts, you won’t notice a shockingly dramatic difference in your appearance. Instead, dermal fillers aim to provide a more subtle effect; which develops over the course of the following few days after treatment. This is especially useful if you don’t want anyone to guess you’ve had it done!
