Sun Damage

Reduce the symptoms of sun damage – rough skin, age spots, wrinkles and poor quality skin

We offer a combination of options to treat sun damage. A consultation with us is necessary to plan the best course of action.
Here are some of the treatments we offer:

Medical and prescription peels

Improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin by using a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin. The new skin that replaces it is usually smoother and less wrinkled in appearance.
We have a variety of peel options and recommend a consultation to find the right solution for you.


Helps remove age spot and pigmentation caused by sun damage while promoting collagen and elastin production and smoothing rough skin.


IPL reduces the irregular discolouration of the skin caused by sun damage by targeting brown and some red pigmentation such as you see in sun spots and freckles.

Retinol / tretinoin treatments

Retinoids minimises the appearance of wrinkles, improves skin's thickness and elasticity, slows the breakdown of collagen as well as lightening discolouration caused by sun exposure.
