Obtaining an adequate amount of sunlight is very important because it stimulates the body to produce Vitamin D. However, an excessive amount of sun exposure can cause substantial damage to the skin.
Whether people are tanning on the beach or working outdoors underneath the potent UV rays of the sun, their skin is susceptible to succumbing to sun damage. Often times, the first sign of sun damage is discoloration of the skin.
Solar lentigines, commonly referred to as age spots, and wrinkling of the skin are also tell-tale indicators of sun damage.
Although sun damage is a very common health ailment, there are some very effective treatments for this condition of your skin. Some of the available treatments include Blu-U Photodynamic Therapy Light Treatment, Fillers, Botox and other neuromodulators, Ultrapulse CO2 laser resurfacing, Intense Pulsed Light treatment (IPL), ResurFX laser, Ultherapy, topical chemotherapeutic medications, or liquid nitrogen cryotherapy.
