Treatment of sun damage

Long term sun exposure causes skin damage including wrinkles, age spots and change in skin texture.

Over time, the sun's ultraviolet (UV) light can damage our skin's elastin, breaking down essential proteins in our skin that help hold elasticity and substance. When these fibers are compromised our skin begins to sag, stretch, lose elasticity, and even alter our skin's pigmentation.

There are a variety of options available to treat such skin irregularities due to the damaging rays of the sun.  To improve the signs of sun damage and aging for all skin types, a variety of modalities are available including the following:

  • IPL photorejuvenation;
  • Microdermabrasion;
  • Laser facial;
  • Chemical peel;
  • Therapeutic skincare regimens.
