What Is Sun Damage?

It’s no secret that excess exposure to the sun can be harmful to the skin. That being said, most of the world still doesn’t use sunscreen regularly. Sun damage is the umbrella term used to describe the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, and sagging along the skin after years of unprotected exposure to the sun’s UV rays. While sun damage may wreak havoc on the skin, there is a way to treat your current sun damage and prevent it from occurring again in the future. Dr. Jennifer Armstrong’s expert medical team members are more than happy to develop a personalized treatment plan to help you address your sun damage and get your healthiest-looking and -feeling skin back.

What Causes Sun Damage?

Sun damage on the skin is caused by excess exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays over time. Patients who are at a higher risk of developing sun damage have a fair complexion, light hair, and light features. Patients can help prevent the development of sun damage with regular use of SPF and taking proactive steps to protect their skin during times they know they will be in the sun, like at the beach.

How Does Sun Damage My Skin?

The ultraviolet rays in sunlight break down and damage the elastin fibers in your skin. Elastin is the skin fiber that keeps your skin flexible and taut. When your elastin is damaged, your skin begins to sag and loses its ability to spring back into place.

UV rays also trigger the melanin in your skin. Melanin cells provide the color in your skin, and the UV rays can cause them to multiply, which leads to sunspots, discoloration, and potentially skin cancer.

What Are the Signs of Sun Damage?

Believe it or not, a suntan is the first sign of sun damage. While that sunkissed glow might make you feel attractive, it’s your skin’s way of showing damage. Over time, the damage to your skin compounds and leads to a loss of elasticity and excess melanin production causing sun spots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss. All the skin imperfections you associate with aging are exacerbated by sun damage.

What Sun Damage Treatment

Options Are Available?

Dr. Armstrong’s team of medical professionals is proud to offer the following sun damage treatments to men and women:

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are the perfect sun damage treatment. Our peels gently exfoliate the uppermost layers of skin, which peel off over the course of recovery and reveal a bright, fresh complexion underneath. Chemical peels remove damaged skin in one fell swoop, making this treatment popular among patients with sunspots.

Laser Treatments

Laser skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that utilizes advanced laser technology to gently remove the uppermost layers of skin. Slightly more invasive than a chemical peel, patients who receive laser skin resurfacing are pleasantly surprised by their bright and radiant skin following treatment.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin rejuvenation is the perfect minimally invasive laser treatment for patients who may see signs of aging as a result of their sun damage. This cutting-edge laser system reduces unwanted fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin for a naturally youthful look.

IPL Photofacials

The dermatologists provide IPL photofacials to reduce sun damage like brown and red age spots, spider veins, and fine lines. The treatment sends pulses of light into your skin, which is absorbed by areas of higher pigmentation. The IPL causes your age spots and other discoloration to break up and fade away.

Cosmetic Treatments

You can also choose from microdermabrasion, microneedling, Platelet-rich plasma injections, and other noninvasive, nonsurgical cosmetic treatments to improve the condition of your skin.

If you’re concerned about sun damage and premature signs of aging, call or schedule a consultation online today to learn more about your options to restore your radiant and youthful complexion.

How Much Does Sun Damage

Treatment Cost?

The cost of your sun damage treatment will depend on the type of treatment you choose to receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and the coverage provided by your current health insurance plan. To get a better idea of how much your sun damage treatment will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation.
