If you're planning on cutting back the damaged leaves, then I'd cut them right back to the base, as it'll look odd otherwise. Just don't remove too many!

You're welcome :-) Just to be clear, I don't think you should remove ALL the leaves right down to the base - just the worst damaged/unslightly ones.
