How to Reverse and Heal Sun Damage With Light Therapy

With the summer season still around, you may be enjoying sunbathing and tanning. But when you go overboard with these, sun damage can occur. If you’re suffering from sun damage due to years of unprotected sun exposure, don’t worry! You can still turn back the clock and repair your sun-damaged skin with these sun protection tips partnered with red light therapy!

What is Sun Damage?

Dermatologists refer to the damage that sun exposure does to our skin under different names, including photo damage, photo aging, and sun damage. Sun damage happens when your skin is overexposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, causing DNA changes at your skin’s cellular level.

Sun damage can be present in the form of:

  • Melasma – When you are exposed to too much UV light, your body produces more melanin or pigment. Overproduction of melanin causes dark patches and spots on your face called melasma.

  • Wrinkles – UV rays penetrate deep into your skin and damage its elastin fibers, causing wrinkles.

  • Sunburn – Sunburn is an inflammatory response to skin damage from UV exposure. Your body reacts to sun damage by increasing blood flow to the affected areas. This causes redness and peeling.

  • Sun Spots – Again, too much UV exposure increases melanin production. Hyperpigmentation can build up in clusters and produce dark spots in your skin known as sun spots.

How to reverse sun damage with red light therapy

Yes, it’s not too late to reverse the effects of sun damage on your skin! Through red and infrared light, you can increase your body’s natural healing process. Red light therapy penetrates deep into your skin and repairs sun damage, scarring, and hyperpigmentation by increasing your body’s collagen and elastin production.

Increased collagen production smoothes out and firms the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Red light therapy also strengthens your body’s immune response to help rejuvenate cells and repair tissue damage. This method of reversing sun damage to your skin has no harmful side effects and is safer compared to using topical solutions and chemical peels.

How to prevent sun damage

While LED light therapy can reverse sun damage, you can also do something to prevent further sun damage to your skin. Remember to always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher when going outdoors. Reapply it after staying out for more than 2 hours, and after swimming or sweating.

Other tips to reverse sun damage

Aside from red light therapy, you can exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells and reveal an even skin tone. You can also treat your skin with anti-aging creams to slow the signs of aging that are caused by sun damage.
