3 Treatments to Help Repair Sun Damage

Updated: Apr 9



As much as most of us love our fun in the sun, it’s no secret that prolonged exposure to the sun (especially without adequate sun protection) has its consequences. While you might not see it at first, over time, hyperpigmentation from damage that occurred in the deep layers of the skin will rise to the surface as sun spots, melasma, and other forms of discoloration. Luckily, we have many sun spot treatment options available here at our medical spa in St. Pete! Today, we’ll discuss a few of our favorites to give you a better idea of which treatment to repair sun damage might be best for you. 


Resurfacing the skin with Moxi


Moxi is a laser service often referred to as “prejuvenation.” Repairing sun damage with Moxi is unique in that it can target and correct sun damage in the deep layers of the skin to stop them in their tracks before they ever even surface! While it works really well to improve texture, tone, and discoloration on the surface of the skin, this is also a great service for those who have had excessive sun exposure in the past, and want to be preventative to avoid the appearance of sun spots and hyperpigmentation in the future.


Reduce hyperpigmentation with BBL Hero


BBL Hero is a treatment that uses a type of laser called broadband laser to effectively treat existing hyperpigmentation and sun spots on the skin. In addition to repairing sun damage, it also targets other visible signs of aging like fine lines, laxity, redness, and texture. BBL Hero can be used on both the face and body, which makes it useful for tackling sunspots on the arms and hands as well as the face. 


Renew and repair your skin with IPL


IPL stands for intense pulsed light and is a non-laser light treatment that is also very effective on sun damage and hyperpigmentation. IPL Hand Rejuvenation treats sunspots on the hands but this laser can also be used on the face and other areas of the body as needed. This treatment differs from laser treatments as it uses a flash of broad spectrum light rather than the continuous beam of light that lasers use. 


To best determine which option is right for your skin type and level of sun damage, it is best to consult with your provider. For best results, multiple sessions across a period of several weeks will be recommended for any laser treatment. The exact amount of sessions will be determined both by your skin’s response to treatment and the amount of sun damage that needs to be repaired. 


At Coco Med Spa, we’re big fans of all three of these services and we look forward to helping you determine which will be the best fit for you and the results you desire. Ready for a consult? Book your consultation appointment here!
