As we are in the midst of summer, now is the perfect time to assess your sun protection. Taking measures to protect your skin against sun damage is important at any age. Should damage occur, the team at Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center in Huntington, New York, offers tips for preventing and therapy for treating sun damage.
Preventing sun damage
Prevention and being proactive about your skin care are crucial. Although the warmth of the sun may feel great against your skin, especially on a beautiful day. You should wear broad-spectrum sunscreen every day regardless of the weather or your skin type.
When your skin is exposed to ultraviolet light from the sun, damage occurs as the tone, texture, and appearance of the skin are affected, and the skin begins to look older—the damaging effects of the sun buildup over time. Protecting your skin from further sun damage helps it retain its youthful glow and soft, smooth texture.
Therapy to treat sun-damaged skin
Those who are already experiencing signs sun damage may have wrinkles, brown spots, and poorly textured skin. Sun damage therapy and laser treatments effectively remove sun damage to improve the tone and texture of the skin. These rejuvenating therapies help patients regain their bright, supple, youthful skin.

Aside from enhancing the skin, laser treatments have a number of benefits, including:
- Safe – Laser therapy is safe for most skin types. The settings are adjustable and customizable to ensure the treatment is properly configured for each patient’s needs.
- Effective – Many patients see results after a single treatment. However, a series of treatments is often recommended to maintain the ideal results.
- Gentle skin rejuvenation – IPL treatments are customized to be gentle and comfortable against the skin. The results are brighter, more even skin tone.
Laser rejuvenation treatments that are non-invasive such as IPL, or intense pulsed light, can be used for treat more aesthetic skin conditions. In addition to sun damage, IPL laser treatments can address skin issues such as redness, hyperpigmentation, broken blood vessels, and rosacea.
