Sun Damage

While a tan may seem aesthetically pleasing on the outside, what’s happening just under the skin’s surface is anything by pleasant. That golden color is actually a result of an injury occurring to your skin. Continuous sun exposure, particularly sun burns, can take a significant toll on your skin’s health and lead to premature aging and sun damage. Sun damage is a form of hyperpigmentation that leaves brown spots on the skin’s surface. Sun damage is often confused with melasma, which is another form of hyperpigmentation typically caused by hormonal changes and worsened by sun exposure. When treating any type of hyperpigmentation, it’s important to be evaluated by a skin care expert. We offer a number of treatments to improve sun damage.
