Complexions Dermatology is pleased to provide a wide range of treatment options for sun-damaged skin. The first line of treatment is usually a topical cream or gel that can stimulate collagen production and lighten darker areas of pigment. There are also special exfoliants that can be used to encourage the skin cells to turnover.
Chemical peels are a nonsurgical procedure used by dermatologists to remove the outer layer of skin cells so that new, smooth skin can be exposed. This improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles often caused by sun damage and creates an overall even-looking skin tone.
Laser therapy is also a treatment option for patients who have sunspots or age spots as a result of sun exposure or sun damage. Laser therapy can treat:
- Actinic keratosis
- Uneven pigmentation
- Age spots
