London (PRWEB UK) 22 August 2013
Photo-damage occurs when the skin is over-exposed to the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. While it is commonly associated with excessive use of sunbeds or sunbathing, sun damage is equally possible via everyday exposure to sunlight. So you don’t just have to be aware of the risks of basking in the sun, it’s also those little bursts of sun exposure such as popping out of the office, jogging or even putting out the washing.
It is said that as little as 15 minutes in the sun can cause sunburn. However, sun damage can take many years to be noticeable. It has a cumulative effect, so people that think they’ve got away with it can be surprised by a sudden appearance of symptoms decades later.
Common signs of overexposure to the sun include premature lines and wrinkles, freckles or sun spots, pigmentation or hyperpigmentation, complexion/texture issues and lack of radiance.
It is never too late to treat sun damage.
London-based Dr Barbara Kubicka MD sees many patients whose skin has been affected by overexposure to the sun.
She offers a wide range of professional treatments that can help improve sun damaged skin, including PRP platelet rich plasma and Dermaroller micro-needling.
However, she has also designed her own exclusive combination treatment for sun damaged skin, known as 'The Exquisite Facial'. This consists of carefully executed professional sun damage treatment utilising two powerful therapies:
The combination of treatments is important as the two approaches complement each other. The skin’s texture and complexion is visibly improved. The treatment also tackles pigmentation issues which can be hard to reverse with DIY or other treatments.
As well as being ideal for sun-damage treatment, the Exquisite Facial combination of chemical peels and IPL is effective on a wide range of face and body problems, including fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, rosacea, acne, scarring, tired, dehydrated or dry skin.
The Exquisite Facial is exclusive to Dr Barbara Kubicka at clinicbe® in Knightsbridge. Treatment is priced at £250 per session and 3-5 are usually recommended with results building after each session.
Dr Kubicka founded clinicbe to offer a new holistic approach to skincare treatments; treating the patient as a whole in order to get the best possible results from any treatments they may have. Private consultations include individual advice on nutrition and lifestyle to help tackle skincare issues from within and compliment professional treatments. Popular treatments include wrinkle-relaxing injections and facial fillers as well as mesotherapy and dermaroller.
