Staying active and getting enough sun is really important for healthy living. However, the more time you spend outside, the more likely you are to incur sun damage. The appearance of age spots, sunburn, and similar issues are all a result of excessive exposure to the sun. While putting on sunscreen can certainly protect your skin, most of us find it hard to keep track of this. If you are struggling with hyperpigmentation due to the sun, we can provide you with non-invasive solutions. Get in touch and discover the best care in Los Angeles today.
How Does Sun Damage Occur?
Sun damage happens when our skin becomes exposed to harmful UV rays. These rays come in UVA and UVB categories. UVA rays have long wavelengths and penetrate deep into your skin’s thickest layer. Prolonged exposure to these rays without sunscreen can lead to advanced aging and the appearance of hyperpigmentation. UVB rays are shorter in length, but can still cause a significant amount of damage. These rays burn the top layers of your skin and play a big role in the development of more complicated issues like skin cancer.
What Are the Signs of Sun Damage?
The hallmark signs of having sun-damaged skin include the appearance of brown spots, more pronounced wrinkles, and a rough skin texture. In most cases, exposure to the sun doesn’t cause significant health risks, but these skin concerns can make us feel quite self-conscious. If you are unhappy with the look and feel of your skin, there is help available. At Allergy & Skin Spa, we offer effective sun damage treatment options.
