Sun Damage & Pigmentation
Living in Australia we are exposed to the harshest UV damage.
Extended exposure to UV radiation (sun exposure or tanning beds) is the primary cause of sun damage and pigmentation. UV radiation damages the DNA in the skin cells and triggers the overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour.
Symptoms of Sun Damage & Pigmentation
Causes of Sun Damage & Pigmentation
Sun damage and pigmentation issues are primarily caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
There are three types of UV radiation: UVA, UVB, and UVC. UVA penetrates deeply into the skin and contributes to premature aging, wrinkling, and pigmentation changes. UVB primarily affects the outer layer of the skin and is responsible for sunburns and the development of sunspots and pigmentation irregularities.
Chronic sun exposure accelerates the aging process of the skin, a phenomenon known as photoaging. Photoaging is characterized by the development of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, rough texture, and uneven pigmentation.
UV radiation damages collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, leading to loss of elasticity, firmness, and resilience. This results in the formation of wrinkles, creases, and skin laxity.
UV radiation stimulates the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color. In response to sun exposure, the skin may produce excess melanin, leading to hyperpigmentation or darkening of the skin.
