What is Sun Damage?

Sun damage includes a range of symptoms and skin conditions that are caused by excess sun exposure. While sun damage is rightfully feared as the primary cause of skin cancer and premature aging, even minor cases of sun damage can become unsightly and motivate patients to seek treatment. The following conditions are examples of sun damage:

  • Melasma
  • Age spots
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Freckles
  • Sunburn

How is Sun Damage Treated?

Sun damage is characterized by uneven skin tone and texture. Fortunately, these symptoms can be effectively addressed with a number of treatment options. Treatment focuses on exfoliating the damaged skin cells and allowing healthy cells to grow in their place. Such treatments include:

  • Laser treatments
  • Chemical peels
  • Dermaplaning
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Topical medications

How Much Does Sun Damage Treatment Cost?

The cost of sun damage treatments at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results.

During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and provide the exact costs associated with your treatment.

What is the Sun Damage Treatment Like?
