Sun damage affects a very large percentage of the population, men and women both. This is because many people do not realize the extent that UV rays can damage the skin, and fail to adequately protect the skin when going outside. Sunscreen and further UV protection in the form of hats and clothing that covers the skin is necessary not only in the summer but in other seasons as well. UV rays can penetrate cloud cover, and can affect the skin even through the window of a car or office. Skin cancer in America is most common on the left side of the body, where the sun hits through the window on your daily commute.
Skin cancer is not the only concern that arises from exposure to UV rays, though. Brown spots, also called age spots or sun spots, can also occur, as well as wrinkles and poor skin tone and texture. Fortunately, the expert, board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego are highly experienced in brown spot removal, as well as comprehensive rejuvenation of the skin that includes smoothing out wrinkles and evening skin tone and texture. Getting your youth back could be as simple as a half hour long laser resurfacing treatment!
Brown Spot Removal
Laser skin resurfacing, microneedling, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels are all tried and true methods of brown spot removal. Brown spots can age a person significantly, and reducing them can mean a brighter, more youthful complexion. Which treatment method is best for you will depend on a number of factors, including your skin condition, lifestyle, and desired results. A consultation with a skilled dermatologist who can evaluate your skin and prescribe not only a customized treatment plan for you individually but also a skin care regimen in order to preserve the effects of the treatment is key to ensuring you get the best results possible.
