Sun Damage Cleveland
Yes, sun damage can be reversed. With the finest creams, serums and treatments for sun damage, you will not only have healthier skin, but more youthful skin as well. Our skin peels, resurfacing lasers and photodynamic therapy treatments can restore your skin to its healthier, more youthful past.
Sunlight causes skin cancer, with time. It also causes wrinkles, both fine and deep, brown spots, broken blood vessels, and pre-malignant actinic keratoses, which are not only unsightly but also can progress to skin cancers. Sunscreens and sun-protective clothing are necessary to keep your skin healthy.
Most of us have had too much exposure to sunlight. Sunlight damage is cumulative, which means that it builds up over time. Sunlight exposure can cause skin cancer. A child may get severe sunburns but they do not typically result in skin cancer until later in life. Most sun damage takes years to produce skin cancer. However, there are many other results of sun damage that occur more rapidly and are quite bothersome to the patient.
Acute sunburns cause peeling and blistering. Sunlight can also cause rashes in persons taking certain medications (like medications to control high blood pressure) or who have certain “sun-sensitive” or photo-sensitive skin diseases (like lupus erythematosus). Sunlight can even cause a skin reaction to a person’s perfume or soap.
At The Parker Skin & Aesthetic Clinic, we can suggest sunscreens with the ingredients that are best for your skin.
