The Signs of Sun Damage
If you recognize any of the following signs of sun damage, you might be an ideal candidate for a treatment session with Dr. Chiang. She’ll meet with you to educate you and help you explore the various options that can address your issues.
- Sunspots (lentigines): Sunspots, also called liver spots or lentigines, are common. They generally appear on areas of the body that have been exposed to the sun over time, like the hands, shoulders, and face.
- Underlying redness and more prominent blood vessels: Chronically damaged skin is thinner and tends to have a reddish undertone.
- Actinic keratoses: Actinic keratoses are scaly spots that typically present on people with lighter skin who have had sun damage.
- Thinner, wrinkled, fragile skin: As the sun thins the skin, it more easily wrinkles with movement and shows etched-in lines. In addition, thin skin is more likely to bruise with slight trauma.
