Sun Damage

When you think of sun damage, do you immediately think of a sunburn? The truth is, sun exposure and sun damage are to blame for most signs of skin aging.

What is Sun Damage?

Repeated, prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun’s rays has damaging effects on the skin, and any amount of time spent unprotected in the sun accelerates the effects of aging and increases your risk of developing skin cancer. To prevent sun damage, it’s important to protect yourself year-round by seeking shade, using broad-spectrum sunscreen, and wearing sun-safe clothing, hats, and eyewear.

Symptoms of Sun Damage

Sun damage can manifest as wrinkles, dull and dehydrated skin, rough skin texture, sun spots, freckles, broken blood vessels, and a loss of firmness and elasticity. 

In more serious cases, the skin can start producing actinic keratoses (precancerous skin lesions), which can result in skin cancers. Existing sun damage can be effectively treated at Skin Science Dermatology following a thorough consultation with Dr. Geeta Yadav, Dermatologist.
