The sun is essential for life, but it can also be your skin’s worst enemy. Exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause various types of damage to your skin, including sunspots, wrinkles, and dullness.
Sun damage can also increase your risk of developing skin cancer, the most common cancer in the United States. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), one in five Americans will develop some form of skin cancer in their lifetime.
At NSS Dermatology, we believe prevention is the best approach to sun damage. Wearing and reapplying broadscreen sunscreen of at least SPF 30, staying out of the sun during high UV times, and wearing sun-resistant clothing will reduce your susceptibility to sun damage.
For those who are already dealing with sun damage, we offer multiple treatments to restore your skin’s health and reduce the visible signs of sun damage. We use various methods to treat age spots, wrinkles and uneven skin tone safely and effectively, leaving your skin smooth, clear, and radiant.
