It’s one of the great ironies that the sun, whose light and warmth you not only instinctively crave but need for your very lives, is also a danger to your health and to how your look. Your skin is prone to sun damage, and if you have any, including sun spots, depend on us skin doctor Dana at Advanced Dermatology of San Clemente for expert diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment options.
Among the health concerns that the sun can be responsible for when it comes to your skin are both the immediate and the long term. Initially, you might deal with the impact of sunburn, which is painful and unsightly. However, the cumulative effects can be cosmetic but relatively harmless (wrinkles) or a reason for alarm (skin cancer). Sun spots and sun damaged skin may not be a threat to your health, but they can leave you feeling self-conscious about your skin. Identifying sun spots is something we do at our office, but you may do so by noting a color of light brown up to black, with a roundish shape, and most commonly showing up on your face, shoulders, or hand. And while the absolute best thing is to take measures to avoid such damage in the first place, that doesn’t help you very much after the fact. Our skin doctor Dana Point will, though, offer you valuable tips and recommendations for preventing recurrences. As for dealing with the situation at hand, which is the sun spots or sun damage you have right now, our skin doctor Dana Point has treatment options that can give you the outcomes you’re looking for. Among the methods that are safe and effective are creams and laser treatments.
