Allowing sun damage to take effect is incredibly damaging and ageing for the appearance of skin. Now Dr Kubicka at Clinicbe® has launched her own exclusive Exquisite Facial to tackle the problem.
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.
Professional Sun Damage Treatment
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 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. This approach consists of carefully executed professional sun damage treatment utilising two powerful therapies.
The Exquisite Facial:
- chemical peels – gentle exfoliation, removing the top dead skin cells to promote cell renewal for a brighter, healthier skin. The combination of organic fruit acids applied can also provide many anti-aging benefits by stimulating the natural healing processes within the skin. Removing the superficial layers helps to prepare the skin for better penetration of acidic solutions and helps to accelerate the effects of IPL
- IPL laser treatment – the IPL device works by giving off a range of specially tuned light-waves. The light-beam passes through the skin and is absorbed by either the haemoglobin or melanin, which results in the obliteration of the tiny vessels and the melanin pigment being absorbed by the body, making them less visible to see. This works deep within the skin to stimulate production of new collagen for 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 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.
