Damaging Effects The Sun Has On Your Skin

Summer is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy all that the Lake Area has to offer, but too much sun exposure can have damaging effects on your skin. Without proper prevention, these effects can become permanent or worsen over time. The experts at Serenity Medical Spa can help you take care of your skin before and after sun exposure. We are here to help inform you of the dangers of exposure to the sun and how we can help prevent and treat the damaging effects.

Danger Of Sun Damage

The sun can damage your skin if it is overexposed to ultraviolet rays. Sun damage can cause premature aging of the skin — fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and texture changes are all effects the sun can have on the skin.

What Sweat Does To The Skin

Our body’s method to combat to heat naturally is sweat. Sweating is the process of bringing moisture to the skin surface to evaporate in hopes to cool the surface of the body. As sweat is produced, bacteria can spread on the skin surface which can lead to clogged pores. This can cause breakouts, rashes, and skin irritation if the sweat is not cleansed in a timely manner.

How We Can Help Prevent Prior To Sun Exposure

It is always recommended to wear sunscreen, even if you do not plan on a long period of exposure. Our Jane Iredale makeup collection offers numerous products with SPF. We carry tinted moisturizer, dry sunscreen, lip tint, and many more products that all offer sun protection. Preventing damage to the skin prior to exposure is key to a healthy, youthful look.

How We Treat Skin After Sun Exposure

If your pores are clogged from sweat during sun exposure, a facial is a great way to remove the bacteria and cellular buildup to cleanse your pores. We provide a few different facial options for our clients to choose from.

-We offer a Hydradermabrasion Deluxe Facial that cleanses the skin with a cool saline material to help restore youthful skin appearance. This method reduces buildup on skin and in pores while hydrating and oxygenating the skin tissue.

-Our HydraFacial MD® resurfaces the skin to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate all at the same time. This method helps dislodge impurities that can settle in pores. Since it targets fine lines and wrinkles, oily or congested skin, sun damage and uneven skin tint, and dry or dehydrated skin, this treatment is a great option after sun exposure.

-The HydraFacial MD® Platinum takes the facial up a notch through Lymphatic Drainage, DermaBuilder™, and LED Light Therapy. 

-We carry the SKINCEUTICALS® skincare line that helps prevent future damage and corrects previous damage. If youthful skin is what you are looking for, this line can aid in achieving that goal.

Sun damage is a very serious issue that should not be taken lightly. The best medical spa at the Lake of the Ozarks can assist you in choosing the proper products for sun protection before being exposed and with restorative skincare services after sun damage has occurred. Beauty is our business, and we want to help you achieve and maintain radiant, youthful skin.
