While the summer months are meant for long days outdoors, this poses a risk to the skin. The skin is the largest organ on the body, and the most exposed. UV radiation from the sun and tanning beds can significantly increase a patient’s risk of developing skin cancer. Additionally, sun damaged skin can impact overall appearance. With the help of the team at Dania Dermatology in Dania, Florida, men and women can learn about the many methods available to address sun damaged skin.
What are some signs of sun damaged skin?
Patients should look for indicators on their skin that they may have experienced sun damage. A few of the more common signs of sun damaged skin include:
- Sun spots (liver spots/age spots)
- Increase in freckles
- Poor skin quality
- Reduced skin laxity
- Wrinkles and fine lines
What dermatology treatments can be used to reduce damage on the skin?
There are a wide range of services available at Dania Dermatology with Dr. Stanley Skopit to resolve the appearance of sun damaged skin. Below are just a few that might be recommended by our team to improve skin quality:
- Chemical peels – chemical peels are used to exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and improving skin quality and appearance.
- Microneedling – microneedling corrects sun damage by stimulating the skin’s natural collagen production.
- Laser skin resurfacing – one of the most effective ways to address sun damaged skin is with laser skin resurfacing, which may include the use of CO2 lasers, Erbium lasers, Fraxel lasers, or Picosecond lasers.
In addition to seeking service solutions available at Dania Dermatology to enhance the skin, patients can also ask about home care solutions as well, working with our team to develop a skin care regimen that works for your unique skin. Patients should also wear broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher every day to all visible skin on the body to protect from further sun damage.
