Sun Damage

Sun damage happens when unprotected skin is hit by UV light causing cellular damage. Signs of sun damage include skin discoloration (brown spots, red spots), wrinkles, rough skin, and potentially pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions. Sometimes it is difficult to know the difference between benign and malignant lesions. Therefore, we recommend you see one of our experienced clinicians for a full-body skin check. At California Skin Institute, we have state-of-the-art technology available for the treatment of sun-damaged skin.
