Get Ready for Summer!
With warmer weather, you may find yourself enjoying outdoor recreation. From children who love to play outside, to adults who enjoy outdoor pursuits, to seniors who enjoy taking walks in their neighborhoods, the damaging rays of the sun can have an impact on all of us. No matter your age, sun damage is a risk for anyone who spends time in the sun without sun protection.

Protect from Sun Damage
To protect your skin from the sun, it is important to take precautions such as wearing sunscreen every day, avoiding peak hours of sunlight, and wearing a wide-brimmed hat. However, even with these precautions, sun exposure happens. With over 270 days of sunlight in Bakersfield, the effects of sun exposure can accumulate rather quickly.

For the young, a few hours in the sun isn’t a big problem. It is the continued exposure over years that puts you at a higher risk of sun damaged skin including premature wrinkles and even skin cancer. Combine years of sun exposure with skin that has lost elasticity and gained a few fine lines, and you have a recipe for skin that could use some repair.

UV radiation is the culprit behind sun damage to the skin. The UVB radiation is responsible for sunburns and direct DNA damage, while UVA is what is responsible for your tan but can also alter DNA and indirectly lead to certain skin cancers caused by forming free radicals. Opus RF and Plasma Skin Resurfacing is a great option if you are experiencing sun damaged skin and want to rid yourself of damaging free radicals.

If you are experiencing the effects of sun damage, such as fine lines, sunspots, and other skin damage, there are treatments available that can help. At Triangle Laser & Aesthetics, Opus RF and Plasma Skin Resurfacing can be used to reduce the visible effects of sun damage on the skin.

During a consultation with Dr. Steven Yaplee, he will assess your skin type and goals to create a personalized treatment plan for you. You will also be given instructions on how to prepare for the treatment, which may include limiting sun exposure leading up to the appointment.

The procedure itself is non-invasive and involves using radiofrequency (RF) and plasma technology to target specific areas of your skin. While there may be some discomfort during the treatment, recovery time is quick and similar to a sunburn. You should be feeling back to normal in 2-3 days.
