Effects of Sun Damage
Sun damage can have many long-lasting effects on your skin. One of the most visible effects of sun damage on skin is the presence of age spots. These concentrations of skin pigment are essentially unevenly-distributed tan. Your skin may also become thinner, duller, and less flexible. Sun damage can reduce your skin’s ability to produce essential structural proteins that help your skin bounce back after stretching and folding. The result will be more visible wrinkles, especially fine wrinkles that can give your skin a “crepey” appearance.
Sun damage can also result in an increased frequency of moles and actinic keratoses, a small, rough, raised area of skin. Both moles and keratoses can develop into skin cancer. At Juva Skin and Laser Center, we can assess your sun damaged skin for cancerous and precancerous lesions, and perform Mohs surgery to remove skin cancer.
Treating Sun Damage
Sun damage treatment depends on the extent and type of sun damage, which in turn depends not just on your sun exposure but also on your genetics. During your consultation we will evaluate your sun damaged skin and recommend a treatment course that will give you the best results.
Often sun damage treatment will begin with MediSpa treatments designed to nourish your skin and give it the vital supplies it needs to respond properly to laser treatments. Then, depending on the type of sun damage you have, we may recommend fractional laser skin resurfacing or more straightforward age spot treatments.
