Sun-damaged skin, otherwise known as photoaging, occurs when healthy skin cells are damaged from sunlight exposure. When natural sunlight or artificial light (i.e. tanning beds) hits unprotected skin, this may result in developing age spots, uneven skin texture, wrinkles, and may even increase a person’s likelihood of developing skin cancer. Not only do these skin concerns visibly age the skin, but extensive sun damage can potentially be life-threatening. While people with fairer complexions are more likely to experience and visibly show signs of sun-damaged skin, people with darker skin tones can also be affected.
Although sun-damaged skin is not entirely reversible, there are several products and treatments that can help improve the look and feel of the skin. Some at-home treatments like retinoids can help reduce some skin concerns caused by early signs of sun damage, yet this alone is not as effective in more moderate to severe cases. Professional aesthetic treatments like Laser treatments offer a stronger, more effective approach to treating several skin concerns caused by sun damage. We offer laser treatments, and more that can help reduce signs of aging and skin discoloration caused by Sun damage to achieve radiantly younger, glowy skin.
