Lansdale, PA (PRWEB) December 13, 2007
Leading Cosmetic Dermatologist James Fairfield, MD has just released another in a series of free articles on his web site. Repairing Sun Damage: "I Had a Great Summer - Now How Do I Help My Damaged Skin?" is available for immediate download at http://www.cmderm.com/articles.html
"Sun damaged skin brings patients into my office every fall," says Cosmetic Dermatologist James Fairfield. "Patients tell me they had a great summer, but it took a toll on their skin. No matter how careful anyone is, you just can't avoid some sun exposure -- and who would want to stay indoors all summer?"
Nobody is in a better position than a cosmetic dermatologist to see the damage that the sun can do to skin. What you can see right now -- discoloration and freckling, redness and blotchy brown spots, the fine wrinkles that come from the drying effects of sun and wind -- is only part of the problem. Ultraviolet radiation from the sun can penetrate the upper layer of skin and destroy deeper collagen and elastic fibers. Over time, this ages your skin, causing it to sag.
Dr. Fairfield's article describes five treatments that can reverse the effects of sun damage that age your skin. Four of them stimulate or assist your skin's middle layers to produce its own fresh collagen, and all of them help with the surface problems of discoloration and fine wrinkles. The treatments are:
- Retinol (vitamin A cream)
- Vitamin C antioxidant cream
- Fraxel laser treatment
- GentleWaves low-intensity LED light therapy
"We're lucky to live in a time when the science of cosmetic dermatology just keeps coming up with more and better solutions to reverse the aging effects of sun damage on skin!" says Fairfield.
Used correctly, in the proper formulations, the two antioxidant vitamin preparations rejuvenate your skin with no downtime or harmful side effects. The same is true for the three cutting-edge cosmetic dermatology procedures. Fraxel laser treatment and GentleWaves light therapy target some of the damaged cells, stimulating the remaining cells to form new collagen and elastic fibers. Microdermabrasion is a gentle procedure to remove the dead cells of the skin surface, refreshing the skin and making it more receptive to products such as the antioxidant vitamin creams.
Dr. Fairfield emphasizes that patients wanting to repair sun-damaged skin should consult with a cosmetic dermatology professional about the individualized best treatment or combination of treatments. And antioxidant vitamin products should be medical grade (meaning that they are dispensed only through a medical professional's office). That's the only way to guarantee the formulation of the ingredients to assure potency and effectiveness.
And then you can remember your great summer without feeling bad about sun-damaged skin!
