When you spend time in the sun, it takes a toll on your skin. In fact, sun exposure is the main cause of dark spots, wrinkles and other signs of aging. It also reduces collagen in the skin, leading to sagging and thinning. Worst of all, sun damage puts you at a much higher risk for skin cancer.
When your skin is damaged by the sun, it will become darker than normal. In addition, you may develop actinic keratoses, or precancerous growths. Your skin may bruise more easily and take longer to heal due to collagen reduction.
If your skin is showing signs of sun damage, it is time to make an appointment with Kessel Dermatology.
