Excessive sun exposure over the years can result in sagging skin, unwanted lines and wrinkles and an increased risk of cancer.* The harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun can penetrate deep beneath our skin’s surface to leave our skin sensitive and vulnerable to other environmental hazards.*
Sun damage occurs with prolonged exposure to the sun over the years. Although they might not appear at first, sun spots and other growths tend to form at a later age as the sun damage has accumulated for many years.*
The best way to prevent sun damage is to use sunscreen each time you’re out in the sun and to avoid unnecessary or prolonged sun exposure.*
Sun spots can be treated with prescription medications such as alpha hydroxy acid gel, beta hydroxy acid gel and Retin-A.* They can also be treated with an amino acid peel, an alpha hydroxy acid peel and other medical strength peels offered at our Center.* Other sun damage conditions can be improved by many of our laser and rejuvenating skin treatments including laser resurfacing, rejuvenating peels and Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments.*
