Associated to sunburn, a tan is an acute inflammatory reaction of the skin when excessively exposed to UV rays or ultraviolet radiation. The benefits of exposure to solar radiation are inclusive of vitamin D synthesis but when this is unrestrained, it could have damaging effects. It is also called solarerythema or simply put – tanning.What are the causes of sun tan?
After the exposure to sun rays, the DNA in the skin is compromised causing apoptosis of skin cells, inflammation and redness. The cutaneous blood vessels are vasodilated prompting the erythema. Your skin has been designed to tolerate how much sun it can take. As the intensity of the UVB rays vary so does the risk of sunburn.Which age group is usually affected?

The different treatments available for this skin problem are:-
Most important is to use proper sun protection by applying sunscreen on the exposed areas.

Satya’s clarifying peel: The active component of this peel is phytic acid which has a large molecular weight and anti-oxidant properties. It is light, superficial and most suitable for sensitive skin types. The peel acts as a blocking agent against copper, iron and calcium which are the contributors to the formation of melanin. Yellow peel also helps in reducing the pigment to some extent.
PRP therapy: The Platelet rich plasma or PRP therapy essentially uses blood withdrawn from your own body, to be centrifuged and then the separated serum rich in platelets is injected into the concerned area. This rich concentration of platelets is applied to the skin for lightening and rejuvenating treatments.
Fractional laser: This type of laser makes small injury sites on the skin in the form of fractions. The injury given by fractional laser helps in excreting the excessive pigmented deposits from the skin. Consecutively, making the skin lighter in colour.
Aqua Facial: A 5 step procedure including extraction of dead cells, cold compress, radio frequency, microdermabrasion and infusing serum. This helps in rejuvenating the skin and getting back the moisture of the tanned area.
