Age spots, wrinkles, brown spots, and leathery skin are all results of over exposure to the sun or sun damage also know as photo aging. Over time, without daily protection from the sun, either by clothing or sunscreen, our skin becomes damaged. As we age the damage begins to show and become more pronounced on our skin. Prevention is the key. With proper clothing, head and eye protection along with daily application of sunscreen at least SPF 15 or higher, you can keep the sun from damaging your skin.
If you have sun damage there are treatments available to minimize or remove the damaged skin.Treatments are individualized depending on the type and severity of the damage so a private consultation is the best option. To learn more about sun damage contact us today!
