What Is Sun Damage?
The medical term for sun damage is photoaging, which is caused by repeated exposure to UV rays from the sun or artificial sources like tanning beds.
UV rays trigger the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin, accelerating wrinkle formation and changing skin complexion. Over time, skin starts to lose volume, becoming loose and leathery. Wrinkles deepen, lips become thin and lose their shape. Uneven pigmentation, age spots and spider veins begin to appear.

- Incorporating high-quality skincare with retinols and antioxidants to help hydrate and normalize your skin barrier function.
- Addressing fine lines, wrinkles and volume loss with targeted applications of Botox® and dermal fillers, as well as IPL, vascular lasers and laser genesis to eliminate pigmented lesions and veins, and stimulate collagen production.
- Brightening your skin by removing superficial layers with exfoliating peels and targeting deeper layers with laser resurfacing.
