The sunshine can make you feel good and give you the vitamin D your body needs. However, long-term exposure to the sun can wreak havoc on your skin. Thankfully, we have a number of sun damage treatment options available at our office.
If you don’t protect yourself with sunscreen, you are more susceptible to age spots, wrinkles, sun damage, and skin cancer. The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage the skin and cause it to stretch, sag, and lose elasticity. Overexposure to the sun and its harmful rays can cause skin discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, and more.
The heat not only dries out your pores, but sweat can clog them and add to the potential of early signs of aging. Thankfully, with regular visits to our dermatologist, most damage can be remedied. If the summer has impacted your skin, here are some options we offer to help reverse sun damage.
A chemical peel is an in-office procedure that exfoliates the skin and reveals a fresh layer underneath. During the process, our skin care professional applies a special chemical solution that causes the top layer of your skin to peel. You are ultimately left with skin that appears glowing, smoother, and less wrinkled.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic are injectable solutions that are administered to lessen the intensity of facial wrinkles. By blocking the nerve signals that prompt certain facial muscles to contract, BOTOX® Cosmetic can prevent the muscle from causing creases in the skin. This creates a smoother and more youthful aspect for your face. Fillers can then be used to fill in wrinkles.
