Sun-Damage

Treating Sun-Damaged or Photo-Aged Skin in New York City

Everyone loves sunshine, including us at Rejuve Clinic, but unfortunately long-term, unprotected sun exposure is known to age and damage the skin. Too much exposure to both UVA and UVB rays from the sun can lead to damaged skin and visible signs of aging and can make a person appear years older than he or she is.

Overexposure to UVB rays can damage DNA and cause skin cells in the epidermis, or top layer of the skin, to produce an abundance of melanin, causing freckles and dark spots, or age spots, to appear. Overtime, precancerous skin lesions or skin tumors can even develop. Overexposure to UVA rays can damage the dermis layer of the skin, or the layer of skin below the epidermis, and lead to a droopy skin appearance and broken capillaries, which are especially noticeable over the nose and cheek areas. Wrinkles and leathery texture are also signs of too much sun. Luckily, quality help is available in NY.

Our caring and skilled staff at Rejuve Clinic, NYC, offers a wide range of effective treatments to help reduce the appearance of sun-damaged skin and restore your natural beauty and exuberance.

Rejuve NYC Approach is All about You:

Sun Damage

At Rejuve Clinic, we begin every treatment with a consultation where we get to know you and your cosmetic expectations. We take a complete medical history which assists in determining the best treatment option. We will ask about any medical illnesses, previous skin treatments, medications, vitamins and allergies.

A physical examination of the area to be treated will be conducted next by a board certified doctor. Crucial for making sure a proper diagnosis is made, an exam also helps the medical staff to understand the cosmetic condition. With the diagnosis in hand, the treatment team will make a recommendation. During this consultation, you are encouraged to ask any questions you may have and express your concerns.

Our primary goal is a satisfying outcome.

Conditions from Sun-Damage that We Commonly See:

Wrinkles

While wrinkles are a natural part of aging, too much sun exposure can give us too many too quick. The sun can damage the dermal layer of the skin, causing it to thin out and reduce the skin’s ability to maintain its structure. Sun exposure also dries out the skin, which also leads to sagginess and wrinkles. (Read More)

Sun Spots ( Actinic Keratosis) and Age Spots (Seborrhoeic Keratosis)

Sun Damage NYCThese are uneven, reddish-brown spots that appear on our skin from too much sun.Age spots form because the sun’s UV rays cause specific skin cells to produce too much of the pigment, melanin. Flat, brown patches, called Lentigo, can form on the face, as well as Liver Spots, which commonly show up on the hands and face. Read More.

Uneven Pigmentation

A generalized blotchy skin tone is one of the hallmark signs of aging and sun damage and a common condition we treat.While we offer many effective treatments, our first step is establish a proper diagnosis. While often benign, uneven pigmentation can sometimes be something more serious, like melanoma, a kind of skin cancer. Read More.

Broken Capillaries

These spider-like vessels are technically known as Telangrectasias.Broken Capillaries are not actually “broken,” but instead permanently dilated capillaries due to a weakened and diminished dermal skin layer. Read More.

Leather-like texture

Sun damage can lead to tough, thickened and alligator-like skin, especially in someone with a history of sunburns. The least invasive approach would include an effective exfoliation and moisturizer regime, but more invasive options are available. Read More.

Freckles

Freckles are small, circular tan spots that appear in groups. While fair-skinned people tend to get more freckles, they can appear on anyone who has a lot of sun exposure. Read More.

Skin lesions and Benign Skin tumors

Our first goal at Rejuve Clinic is to properly diagnose your skin condition. While prolonged sun exposure can lead to many different types of skin lesions and benign tumors, we want to rule out more serious diagnoses, such as basil cell carcinomas or melanoma.
