How to correct sun damage

Over-indulged in the summer sun this year? Let us explain the best ways to correct sun damage

The small, dark spots are found generally on the hands and face, but any area exposed to the sun can be affected. Skin can look dull, pigmentation and age spots start to appear and wrinkles become more prevalent. Freckles (Ephelides) found on the skin can be classed as a form of hyperpigmentation, they are usually multiple in number. It’s important to keep an eye on your freckles (and moles) and if they change in appearance, then get them checked!


Years-worth of sun damaged skin will include; fine lines, deep wrinkles, a thickened skin texture and easy bruising on sun-exposed areas, especially the back of the hands and forearms.

Skin Peels are designed to remove the layers of dead skin cells that cause problems and reveal a smooth complexion underneath. Each skin peel will target your skin’s individual needs. It will revitalise any dull, dry or damaged complexion issues as well as any sun damage whilst smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.

While the The Pigmentation Treatment is a virtually painless treatment to treat dark patches, age spots and sun damaged skin. It combines heat and light to target the pigmented areas and gradually break them down. We recommend 1 treatment every 4-6 weeks to even tone and lighten damaged skin.

Using Harmony® AFT pulsed light technology combined with the original HydraFacial, The HydraLight HydraFacial treats complicated skin conditions such as acne, pigmentation and rosacea to reveal a beautifully clear complexion.


Vitamin C is an antioxidant and works to neutralize free-radicals. As well as reducing pigmentation, Vitamin C is relied upon for its’ anti-ageing properties – it boosts collagen production which ultimately leaves the skin looking firmer and more radiant. Not to mention it’s super anti-inflammatory power too; acne and rosacea sufferers claim their skin is calmer after using a Vitamin C derivative.
