How to prevent sun damage in Orlando
Preventing sun damage in Orlando can be a tough feat with the sun shining all year round. With that said, we thought that we’d put together some tips and tricks to help you prevent sun damage, so that you can keep your skin healthy and young-looking for years to come.
Tip #1 Minimize your time spent in direct sunlight
As much as you may want to spend most of your days on the beach, we recommend spending minimal time in direct sunlight. If you can, find a shady spot on the beach or bring a big umbrella that you can sit under. Limit your time in the sun to prevent sun damage in Orlando.
Tip #2 Don’t go in the sun during peak hours
If being outdoors plays an important role in your daily lifestyle, do your best to avoid the sun during peak hours. Early mornings are the best time of day to be outdoors, so take advantage of that time when the sun isn’t at its most harmful and powerful. The sun’s ultraviolet rays are the most powerful and damaging between the hours of 10:00 am and 3:00 pm.
Tip #3 Wear Sunscreen and protective clothing
Sunscreen is a must when it comes to spending time in the sun. Use a sunscreen that has an SPF. SPF stands for “sun protection factor,” and the number will indicate how well the sunscreen will protect you from the sun’s UV rays. The higher the number, the greater protection you’ll have against sun damage. Using high quality products is very important when it comes to taking care of your skin.

Tip #4 Skin rejuvenation treatments are your best friend!
PIXEL™ treatments are the fastest way to deal with sun damage. PIXEL™ treatments stimulate collagen production beneath the dermis to create a healthier foundation for the skin. We use PIXEL™ technology by Alma Lasers™ as it offers superior results for skin rejuvenation and sun damage removal. This procedure removes removes damaged skin cells by using fractional, non-ablative resurfacing technology. This is the most effective approach at improving the skin’s elasticity, complexion, and eliminating skin imperfections, including sun spots and hyperpigmentation.
Tip #5 IPL treatments are also your best friend!
IPL treatments, commonly known as photo rejuvenation treatments effectively treat skin conditions such as roscia, acne, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. IPL technology emits short bursts of a powerful, polychromatic light that penetrate below the surface of the skin in order to target melanin or blood vessels, depending on the type of treatment. The light destroys the melanin or blood vessels and thus destroys things like sun spots and spider veins. IPL treatments can also stimulate collagen production and therefore rejuvenate skin while creating a healthier foundation and eliminating sun damage.
