Sun Damage

Although limited sun exposure is healthy for the body, providing needed Vitamin D, over-exposure damages the skin. The problem lies in the ultraviolet rays, produced by the sun, and used to tan skin in tanning salons. Sunscreen offers some protection, but no sunscreen can completely protect against UV rays. Frequent tanning leaves the skin looking wrinkled, leathery, or left with “sun spots” or “age spots.”

Sun-damaged skin can now be treated to restore a younger-looking, firmer quality. The most effective anti-aging technologies are available at Scarpidis Aesthetics in New York. Do you want to get rid of sun spots, freckles, age spots, or restore skin that now looks saggy, lined, and wrinkled due to excess sun exposure? We can help.

Aging Skin from Sun Exposure: Time to Rejuvenate

Many people enjoy outdoor activities, both in the summer and the winter. Whether it’s the beach, boating, sports, skiing, or other outdoor recreational activities, it is critical that you protect your skin from damage. Although the sun can give you a healthy-looking glow, the long-term result is skin that ages more quickly, and develops lines, wrinkles, and creases, and unsightly age spots. It is possible, with modern anti-aging treatments, to restore a more youthful texture and tone to your skin, as well as remove sun spots and the other signs of sun damage.

Custom Treatments for Sun-Damaged Skin

Every person has a unique situation, with varying levels of sun damage. The first step is a full evaluation of your skin quality. Some of the treatments we offer include:

Cutera Excel V Laser: This advanced laser was developed to treat pigmentation issues, including sun spots, freckles, and age spots – as well as many other skin flaws. The green laser light pulses quickly and effectively to remove excess pigment, leaving your skin clear and free from flaws. It can be targeted to address lines and wrinkles.

MaxFrax: This is a combination treatment developed by Dr. Scarpadis, and includes three separate procedures – laser, an oxygen facial, and a “photofacial” which uses specific low-energy light into facial flaws. The combination of treatments can produce a dramatic improvement in skin texture, smoothness, and firm quality to sun-damaged skin.

Halo Rejuvenation Laser: Halo targets the effects of sun exposure, and can treat discoloration, poor texture, fine lines, and enlarged pores, among other flaws.

IPL Max G: This system uses light-based technology, produced by a handheld unit that is moved over the area to be treated. The light energy is absorbed into areas with excess pigmentation.

We believe that modern technology lets us improve on nature, and one of our many anti-aging treatments, whether used singly or in combination, works to restore aging, sun-damaged skin.
