Kazem Aesthetica: Smart in the sun

Did you know that unprotected sun exposure is the leading cause of premature skin aging? Kazem Aesthetica explains to MASTERS what exactly sun damage is, how you can prevent it and what you can do to reduce its effects.Online editor: Mical Joseph

What is sun damage?

Lying in the sun is wonderful. But those pleasantly warm sun rays also contain ultraviolet light, UVA and UVB, which are harmful to the skin. Relatively least serious are ultraviolet B rays. These cause the burnt, red skin that we are all familiar with. However, the A rays can penetrate much deeper into the skin and cause serious DNA damage.

What are the consequences?

The first visible sign of sun damage is sunburn. If the skin is exposed unprotected for longer, it becomes dry, dull and takes on an uneven color. Sun damage slows down the renewal of skin cells. As a result, dead skin cells accumulate, resulting in dull, congested skin, which can also cause persistent pigment spots. Sun damage can also destroy collagen and elastin in the skin. And that results in premature aging that becomes visible as wrinkles and fine lines. And repeated sunburn even increases the risk of various forms of skin cancer. That is why sun protection is so important!

How can you prevent sun damage?

In short: protect yourself. SPF is absolutely your best friend. So always apply good sunscreen and repeat this regularly. Avoid sitting in the sun during the hottest hours of the day and be extra careful when in or on the water. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids and use a good after-sun cream.

How do you improve your skin after the holidays?

Kazem Aesthetica offers various treatments to optimize the condition of your skin after a sunny holiday:

- Hydrafacial. A unique peeling technique that removes impurities and hydrates the skin at the same time.

- Thermage. A single treatment using radiofrequency energy that penetrates deep into the skin, stimulates collagen production and thus makes the skin smooth and tight. This result lasts for several years.

- Nuera Tight. A series of treatments in which radiofrequency energy smoothes the skin's structure and refines pores. The skin is strengthened because collagen production is stimulated.

- Clear + Brilliant. This laser technology smoothes the skin and makes spots and pores less visible.
