Damage from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light is the primary reason skin ages. This means that no matter how well you take care of your body, your skin will show the signs of time. It also means that you can slow the process a bit by using sunscreen. Over time, however, even sunscreen can’t prevent some UV-related damage.
As you age, your skin also loses elasticity. This makes the damage caused by the sun in the form of fine lines and wrinkles more visible. It may also cause your skin to sag, or to look thinner and duller than it once did. Acne scars, age spots, and redness can also get worse with time.
That’s why you might notice that, even if you can’t put your finger on why, you look younger in pictures from five and 10 years ago. No one escapes life unscathed. That’s doubly true of your skin. Fotona lasers have changed all of that.
