PYNCH For Sun Damage & Prevention

Phoenix: The Valley of the Sun

Ah, the solar deity, our sun. Sun worship can be found throughout most of our recorded history and in various religions. The Phoenix Metro is even named after a symbol in Greek mythology that is closely connected with the sun.

There is no denying that the sun makes us feel good, and occasionally, look good. But there is also no dying that skin cancer is the most prevalent form of all cancers in the United States. Or that sun exposure (including tanning beds) accelerates the effects of aging by breaking down the fibers in our skin, called elastin. Sun exposure is the #1 cause of skin aging! The good news is there are several new products on the market to prevent these harmful effects.

Skin Medica Total Defense & Repair:
This revolutionary sunscreen goes beyond UV protection which defend against harmful infrared rays, and helps support the skin’s ability to restore itself. Total Defense & Repair reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and is water-resistant up to 80 minutes.

Elta MD UV Elements:
An effective broad spectrum sunscreen that is gentle even for the most sensitive skin types, especially post-procedure skin. It comes tinted with a moisturizing base that has 10% transparent zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to provide safe and effective sun protection. Elta MD UV Elements includes the ultra-hydrating ingredient hyaluronic acid to protect and restore. And it is water-resistant for up to 40 minutes.

Prevention is great, but many of us already have sun damage. UV rays account for 80% of skin aging and have many unwanted effects: 
Reduced Skin Elasticity  •  Freckles
• Degradation of Skin Texture & Color
• Wrinkles  •  Fine Lines  •  Sun Spots  
•  Sagging  •  Freckles  •  Dryness

Laser Skin Treatments: Laser Skin Treatments can reverse the signs of premature aging due to sun damage. The best laser for the job depends on the amount of sun damage your skin has. Skin revitalization is a non-surgical approach to treatment sun damage without harming your surrounding skin.  Our Certified Laser Technician, Brooke Bangart is excellent at picking out the appropriate laser for maximum benefit to her patients.
