Many of us have had sunburn at some point in our lives. This means our skin has been damaged and sadly it’s not reversible, or is it?
A team of researchers in the U.S, have found there may be a treatment that could reverse sun damage. The treatment uses a combination of topical solution and laser treatment. This stimulates the collagen production, thus rejuvenating skin that has been damaged.
The treatment is being used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots and fine lines. Researchers from the University of Michigan tested photodynamic therapy. This combines a solution called Levulan and then pulsed dye laser treatment.
They found that the therapy increased the production of collagen and promoted the thickening of the top layer of skin. The costly treatment is currently being only performed in the U.S, usually to the face.
