Sun-damaged skin occurs when unprotected healthy skin cells become damaged from natural or artificial light sources, such as sunlight or tanning beds. Sunlight exposure to unprotected skin can deeply affect the skin on a cellular level and result in various changes to the look and feel of the skin. Fine lines and wrinkles, sunspots, uneven skin texture, and the potential of developing skin cancer are a few of the many risks linked to sun-damaged skin. The arms, legs, hands, and upper chest area are some of the most common areas of the body to experience sun damage. Although people of all ages and skin types can experience the short and long-term effects of sun damage, people with a fairer complexion are most at risk.
Prioritizing sun protection by wearing sunscreen and protective clothing when outdoors is the first step toward preventing further damage to the skin. Topical products can help treat early signs of sun-damaged skin, yet they are not nearly as effective in helping more moderate to severe cases of sun damage. We offer a range of laser treatments to help reduce signs of sun-damaged skin like fine lines and wrinkles, skin discoloration, uneven skin texture, and more to achieve smoother, younger-looking skin.
