Cleveland Sun Damage Treatment | Double Certified Facial Plastic Surgeons

Best Sun Damage Treatments in Cleveland, Ohio

Laying out in the sun, letting our skin burn to ‘get a good base,’ or using tanning beds were accepted and typical practices until fairly recently until our improved understanding of the long-term effects of sun exposure. That means a lot of us are left with decades of sun exposure and the resulting damage. Sun-damaged skin might exhibit brown age spots, over-freckling, or a leathery appearance. Excessive sun exposure can lead to skin cancers, which require removal and reconstruction.

What causes sun damage?

We are exposed to damaging sun rays every day, even when we are driving to and from work or the store. Men and women who have had more unprotected exposure to the sun or tanning beds are at the greatest risk for developing sun-related aging and skin cancer. Age spots occur in a range of colors from light brown to red and even dark red or black. They appear as flat, uneven dark patches on the face, neck, chest, hands and arms, and other areas that are regularly exposed to the sun. Sun damage may also impact the texture of the skin, leaving it uneven and sometimes rough.

How can I reverse sun damage?

Chemical peels and laser treatments are effective for treating focused sun damage like age spots. Chemical peels and laser induce controlled injury directed at the unwanted pigment, triggering the body’s natural healing process to fade the spots. An overall leathery appearance can be smoothed and rejuvenated with lasers and chemical peels. Both are popular treatments for wrinkles, sun damage, and scarring.

  • Dr Ponsky’s staff are full of energy and very friendly. They are extremely personable, and worked to ensure that I felt comfortable and had everything I needed (down to a blanket during the procedure). Dr Ponsky is thorough, sweet, and gentle in her explanations. She made sure to explain the answers to each of my questions and I never felt rushed/forced to make a decision. I love the fact that we could do the entire procedure under local anesthesia.
