Prolonged exposure to UV, UVB, and HEV light can visibly impact our skin, accelerating the appearance of skin ageing. Photodamage is responsible for a host of concerns, including fine lines, discolouration, and dryness. We are now more aware than ever of the impact that sunlight and blue light exposure can have on our complexions, emphasising the need for daily sun protector factor (SPF) protection.
Here, Fox Pharma explores the best multi-layered treatment approaches for patients with sun-damaged skin, providing a comprehensive photoaging treatment guide.
Chemical peels for photodamaged skinWhen it comes to photodamage, patients often have three main concerns: fine lines, texture, and discolouration. Chemical peels can help address these concerns by exfoliating the skin and removing dead cells that contribute to dullness, uneven texture, and discolouration. Chemical peels come in various different strengths, ranging from surface-level to deep. They can promote a smoother and more radiant complexion, which is ideal for patients with sun-damaged skin. Fox Pharma offers a range of chemical peel products, including BioRePeel. One of the products in this range is the BioRePeel C13 FND, which is an innovative peel intended for use on the face, neck, and décolleté. It uses biphasic technology to provide a bio-stimulating, revitalising, and peeling effect. Formulated with 35% trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and a blend of active ingredients, this peel targets the appearance of oxidative damage caused by UV radiation and pollution.
Restoring volume with dermal fillersDermal fillers provide instant results with minimal downtime by smoothing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They do this by restoring the volume that has been lost due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, like REVOLAX, can offer natural-looking volumising and plumping. REVOLAX Fine is the perfect choice for reducing the appearance of fine lines that can occur due to prolonged sun exposure. As the lightest filler in the REVOLAX product range, REVOLAX Fine is ideal for treating superficial lines, including crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and neck wrinkles. For deep wrinkles and nasolabial folds, REVOLAX Deep is the ideal treatment option. It helps to combat the effects of volume loss. On the other hand, REVOLAX Sub-Q is intended for treating severe wrinkles and augmenting the chin, cheeks, and jawline. The REVOLAX range offers a dermal filler product that suits photo-induced lines and wrinkles of varying severity. This range of products works together to create the appearance of a smoother and more youthful-looking visage.
CosmeceuticalsCosmeceuticals can play a crucial role in a comprehensive photoaging treatment plan as they bridge the gap between clinical skin treatments and at-home medical skincare. These products are specially formulated with powerful active ingredients that deliver visible results. To reduce the visible signs of photodamage and prevent further discolouration, it is important to use medical-grade skincare and SPF consistently. The RHA x VCIP Serum is an excellent addition to any photoaging treatment regimen. It contains a new generation of vitamin C, which helps combat discolouration, loss of firmness, and dullness. This serum enhances skin radiance, minimises unevenness, and provides anti-ageing properties, brightening effects, and antioxidant protection.
Photoaging treatment of damaged skin with mesotherapyMesotherapy is a non-surgical and non-invasive rejuvenation technique that involves micro-injections of specialised cocktails of ingredients. This treatment can be customised to address a client’s specific skin concerns, making it an ideal choice for those seeking photoaging solutions. The Stayve Booster Starter Kit is a great option for brightening and hydrating photodamaged skin. It comes with various ampoules that can be used to target specific skin concerns. The versatility of this starter kit allows you to create a personalised blend that is tailored to your patient’s unique needs.
