Sun Damage

Sun damage to some degree from growing up and living in Australia’s harsh, sub-tropical climate is present in almost all of us. Time spent outdoors results in a variety of skin changes including sallow, blotchy skin, irregular pigmentation, visible blood vessels, loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles and sun spots.

Visible Blood Vessels

Red facial lesions, such as capillaries and veins, are treated using vascular laser. These lasers target the problematic blood vessels, and the visible lesions disappear, without affecting the underlying blood flow to the skin.


Pigment lasers such as the Q-Switched Alexandrite, Q-Switched Nd:YAG and Picosure Picosecond lasers are used to lessen the colour and depth of brown pigmentation, such as freckles, age spots, liver spots.

Treatment for Visible Sun Damage

Sallow skin, redness, spider veins, pigmentation and age spots can be effectively addressed with treatment using the appropriate laser. We are pioneers in the innovative use of combination laser treatments, so that multiple problems can be treated in each session, making improving sun damage more cost-effective and time-effective for patients. Our signature treatment, the Walter-Nolan Multi-Laser Procedure is recommended for patients with a variety of sun damage issues.

Treatment of Wrinkles and Leathery Skin

With increasing sun exposure, skin becomes thickened, leathery and wrinkled. Laser resurfacing is a specialty at Neutral Bay Laser & Dermatology Clinic and an excellent option for patients wanting to greatly reverse their visible ageing and sun damage.

It is recommended that all patients wishing to treat sun damage of their skin attend a consultation with our Dermatologist, who will ensure there is no pre-existing skin condition that would affect the efficacy of the treatment nor be adversely affected by the treatment. A suitable course of treatment will be determined at this consultation and patients will be given all relevant information, including the cost of treatment, at that time. Patients will then be free to make an appointment for their treatment or take the information home for further consideration.

To book an initial consultation with our Dermatologist, or to discuss treatment for your sun damage, please contact the clinic on (02) 9953 9522.
