The Sun: Earth’s energy resource, but not so great for your skin

What are the real facts about the sun?

Lets’ face it, people love the warm sun. The sun’s rays feel amazing, and can be perceived to make us look better. But the sun is a double-edged sword: Exposure to sun causes most of the damaging wrinkles and age spots on our faces. Think about this: Dermatologists estimate that a person who is 40 and, who consistently has protected his or her skin effectively, will appear to have the skin of a 30 year old!

We often associate a glowing complexion with good health, but skin color from sun exposure (especially unprotected)—or from a tanning booth—actually can accelerate the effects of aging and increase your risk of developing skin related disorders and cancers.

What does sun damage have to do with me?

The reality is that whether you are able to see your sun damage today on your skin, or it is lurking under the surface, it is there. At Nagada MedSpa we can help lessen the effects that sun damage has on the aging process by treating before it starts. Or, if you already have age spots and sun damage, we can help make it disappear. It is kind of like have a magic wand in your back pocket, and who wouldn’t want that!
