outdoors at lunch – informal, happy occasions but which very often don’t include time for sun cream!


Signs of sun damage Consequences of over-exposure to the sun’s rays can include: • Premature fine lines and wrinkles • Freckles or age spots • Pigmentation issues or hyperpigmentation


• Tired, dehydrated or dry skin • Poor complexion or texture with lack of radiance It is very important to watch for any suspicious moles on the skin as melanoma is a highly dangerous form of skin cancer – this could include irregular, fast growing or changing moles or moles with discharge or unusual colouring. Any concerns should be taken to a GP as soon as possible.


Professional sun damage treatment While prevention is better than cure, it is never too late to treat sun damage and modern aesthetic medicine means doctors such as myself at ClinicBe treat many patients whose skin has been affected by overexposure to the sun. ClinicBe offers a wide range of treatments


to improve sun damaged skin, including PRP platelet rich plasma and Dermaroller micro- needling. However, I particularly advocate a new approach designed myself: the Exquisite Facial.


Exquisite Facial The exclusive Exquisite Facial consists of a carefully executed professional sun damage treatment programme that combines two powerful therapies for enhanced results: 1. chemical peels – intense, medical grade exfoliation, removing the top dead skin cells to promote cell renewal for a brighter, healthier skin.


2. IPL treatment – using powerful lasers that work deep within the skin to stimulate production of new collagen. This has a firming and tightening effect.


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 that can be hard to reverse with DIY treatments. After treatment, the following at-home


treatments or routines can help to maintain and further improve the condition of the skin: • Use sunscreen SPF30+ every day, particularly in summer


• Apply moisturiser twice a day • Refrain from smoking • Exfoliate, to remove dead skin cells and stimulate cell renewal


• Get plenty of sleep and exercise • Eat a healthy diet, rich in antioxidants • Drink water where possible.
