Tips for Combating Sun Damage
At Derick Dermatology, we look forward to your consultation. In the meantime, here are a few things that you can start doing to prevent further damage from occurring:
- Wear sunscreen year-round! Many patients are great at protecting their skin from the sun on hot summer days at the beach. In actuality, you should be protecting your skin every single day. Applying a SPF 15 Sunscreen or higher daily will lower the risk of skin cancer and sun spots over the long-term.
- Stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water will help your skin stay moisturized. In doing so, you may see improvements in the look and feel of your skin!
- Consider Laser Skin Resurfacing. Derick Dermatology provides laser skin resurfacing and rejuvenation to eradicate sun spots and other problems caused by sun exposure. Laser skin rejuvenation can also help with the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and more.
