Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging & Wellness Educates the Public on How to Reverse Sun Damage – St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Glen Carbon, Ill. (August 16, 2022) Summer months are a time when people most commonly start to see sun damage on their skin. Kristen M. Jacobs, MD, aesthetic physician, best-selling author, and owner of Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging & Wellness wants people to know that although the sun can have harmful long-lasting effects, there are ways to help reverse sun damage.

“Even when we take extra precautions to protect our skin, it can be impossible to avoid sun damage,” said Dr. Jacobs. “Ultraviolet rays from the sun can trigger your skin cells to produce more melanin which can lead to dark sunspots. There are various products and treatments out there that can help reduce the appearance of these spots.”

Sun damage can appear in many different forms. Brown spots, uneven skin tone and melasma are all signs of sun damage. Melasma is a condition where brown and brownish-gray spots show up on the skin, most often on the face. Premature wrinkling and sun damage can also be known as photo-aging, which can result in coarse, dry skin, freckling, skin discoloration, leathery skin and deep wrinkles.

“Chemical peels and micro-needling treatments can help with the appearance of sunspots and actually reverse some of that damage from the UV rays,” Dr. Jacobs said. “Sun damage can influence a person’s confidence and we want people to feel the best versions of themselves with healthy, beautiful skin after they come to Ooh La La Spa, Anti-Aging & Wellness.”

Prevention is key to taking care of your skin. Practicing safe sun exposure habits such as wearing the right sunscreen, wearing protective clothing, and staying out of the sun as much as possible can help prevent skin cancer and other skin-related conditions later in life.
