13 Dec Undo Sun Damage
Arizona residents battle the sun year-round, and even one day of forgetting sunscreen or not reapplying it liberally can lead to sun damage. RefinedMD offers a variety of treatments to remove and undo sun damage so you can look and feel younger, healthier, and more vibrant. Sunburns (and suntans!) are just the first signs of sun damage. Full damage can take years to show itself and may look like freckles, moles, brown spots, and age spots. Fortunately, you can now vanquish sun damage that you withstood even decades ago.
Repairing the Past Sun Damage
One of the most effective means of treating sun damage is with laser and light therapies. Broadband light therapy (BBL), HALO laser, intense-pulsed light (IPL) treatment, and a number of other states of the art laser and light treatments can reduce or even eliminate signs of sun damage. The right laser for you will depend on the type of sun damage, the severity, and your skin.
However, there’s another—and more important—reason to prioritize sun damage care. Sun damage can lead to skin cancer, with severe sunburns being the most likely cause of the most dangerous form of skin cancer, melanoma. The good news is that when skin cancer is caught early, it’s very fast and easy to remove. However, this requires an expert evaluation of your skin on an annual basis. A lot of people think they know what a dangerous mole looks like, but skin cancer is sneaky and can look like an unassuming brown spot or freckle, too.
Make ongoing skin health part of your annual routine. It’s easy, especially when you reward yourself with getting rid of brown spots and other forms of sun damage at the same time. Your dermatologist will closely examine your skin for any red flags and discuss your various options for sun damage treatment. Most clients benefit from a series of laser or light treatments, but you’ll see results after just one treatment as well.

You can further optimize results by pairing laser and light treatments with microneedling. Microneedling produces controlled, tiny injuries in the skin to encourage collagen production and natural healing for younger-looking, healthier skin.
