Freckles, wrinkles, fine lines, photodamage, and pigmented spots are just some of the types of damage that the sun can cause your skin. It’s hard to maintain the clear, beautiful skin you were born with once the sun intervenes. Over-exposure or long-term exposure to the sun can cause drastic sun damage that will not become fully apparent until several years have passed.
At Smith Cosmetic Surgery, advanced laser technology and other innovative cosmetic procedures are used in order to correct different types of sun damage. Although it is not an overnight process, with repeated treatment, much of the damage done by the sun can be reduced considerably.
During a consultation with Dr. Smith, you will receive recommendations on how to protect your skin from the sun and restore your skin’s youthful appearance.
Treatments for Sun Damaged Skin
At Smith Cosmetic Surgery, a variety of treatments are offered that can correct sun damage on your face, neck, chest, and arms.
Some treatments we offer that provide sun damage correction include:
- Chemical peels
- Erbium laser skin resurfacing
- ProFractional laser treatment
Ultimately, the best “cure” for sun damage is prevention. In order to maintain beautiful skin throughout your life, you must protect it from the sun by wearing hats and applying sunscreen or sun block everywhere your skin is exposed. Sun damage is cumulative. Even small incidents of sun exposure can add up over time, whether you are indoors or outdoors.
