We all love the sun, but nothing is harder on your skin than constant sun exposure. Sooner or later, your skin is going to show the signs of sun damage, including wrinkles, laxity, and pigmentation issues. JUVA Skin & Laser Center offers a number of sun damage treatments in our NYC facility, which can improve the look and health of your skin.

Our dermatologists can examine your skin for common signs of sun damage and recommend individualized, effective treatment options. We also offer a complimentary Visia scan, a computerized complexion analysis system that is used to help evaluate the condition of your skin. It evaluates parameters such as wrinkles, UV damage, skin texture, sun spots, pores, and porphyrins.

The Harmful Effects Of Sun Exposure

While sun exposure may offer a short-term boost to your complexion and a deeper skin color, the long-lasting effects of sun damage are undesirable. Ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun actually damages the elastin fibers in your skin. These fibers are what make your skin springy, youthful, and resilient. When the fibers break down, your skin may become thinner, duller, and less flexible.

You might start to notice wrinkles, loose skin, and even discoloration. Sun damage can also result in an increased frequency of dysplastic moles and precancer such as actinic keratoses, both of which can cause skin cancer. At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we can address your cosmetic concerns and assess your sun damaged skin for cancerous and precancerous lesions.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

Photodynamic therapy, also known as PDT or blue light therapy, is a medical treatment that utilizes timed blue light exposure to activate a topical drug for the purpose of improving skin concerns. The safe drug, called a photosensitizing agent, only works after being activated by the special light.

Our dermatologists use PDT to treat sun damage at our NYC location, as well as early pre-cancers called actinic keratoses. The service is commonly performed on the face and scalp, but can be used on any part of the body.

PDT can also be used to improve:

  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Wrinkles
  • Other skin conditions

Revlite Lasers

Revlite lasers are advanced devices that utilize safe, powerful pulses of light. These lasers are highly effective when it comes to treating pigmentation concerns like sun spots, age or liver spots. Revlite lasers can also treat concerns such as:

  • Dermal pigmented lesions
  • Birthmarks
  • Spider veins
  • Unwanted tattoos with green, blue, or black coloring

Before & After

Fractional CO2 Laser

Fractional CO2 lasers remove old, inelastic cells using concentrated light energy in order to stimulate the growth of new, vibrant cells. As the name suggests, only a fraction of the skin in the treatment area is actually removed. These lasers are safe for all skin types, offering minimal recovery time and minimal side effects.

Fractional co2 lasers can treat many concerns caused by sun exposure, such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Irregular skin texture
  • Loose skin

Pulsed Dye Laser

Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) treatments work by delivering short, intense bursts of laser light to improve skin issues. The light targets problem blood vessels in the skin and eliminates them. One of the most common issues that a PDL laser can improve is unwanted redness.

The PDL laser can also treat:

  • Angiomas
  • Broken Capillaries
  • Rosacea
  • Small blood vessels
  • Spider veins
  • Port wine stains

At JUVA, we offer The Cynergy 595 pulsed dye laser. This safe laser can effectively treat a variety of vascular lesions. Our dermatologists can explain what results you can hope to see from a Cynergy 595 treatment.

Protect Your Skin With Our Advanced Line Of Sunscreen

Sunscreen is one of the best ways to protect your skin from sun damage. It allows you to prevent sun damage from occurring in the first place and can safeguard you against additional harm.

After our treatments have improved the health and beauty of your skin, you’ll need to apply sunscreen diligently to preserve your results. We offer a carefully curated skin care line that includes safe and effective sunscreens.
