FAQ

What is sun-damaged skin? What causes it?

Sun-damaged skin often manifests itself in the form of age spots, also called liver spots and solar lentigines, which are flat, brown, grayish-brown or black spots on the skin. They appear in a variety of sizes and usually afflict the face, hands, shoulders, chest, back and arms. It’s no surprise that these are the most commonly exposed areas to the sun. Photodamage accumulates in your skin over time, including thinning of the skin, broken capillaries, multiple deep wrinkles, excessive brown pigmentation and skin laxity and these sun damage changes can be seen very early on in life, appearing more visibly after the age of 40.

If I have treated my sun-damaged skin, will it come back? Can I prevent it?

Patients can be assured that through regular maintenance, the sun-damaged skin lesions and age spots will have a lower chance of reoccurring. Reoccurrence will certainly happen if you do not maintain your result with proper home skincare, sun protection and quarterly laser maintenance treatments. Your SpaMedica treatment professional will recommend a home regime that will include sunscreens and protective therapeutic garments (Sun Soul) to protect your skin.
