There is little that feels better after a long winter than the warmth of the sun beaming down on your face. Unfortunately, too much sun can cause harm and significant damage to your skin. Studies indicate that the sun causes 80% of the skin’s premature aging. Although avoiding the sun altogether can be unhealthy as well, you have options to ensure skin health and beauty.
When skin cells are affected by the sun’s UV rays, various issues arise, including:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dry Skin
  • Age/Sunspots
  • Sunburn

The good news is you can eliminate some of the effects caused by sun exposure. Proactive skin care and aesthetic medicine can help protect your skin, reverse sun damage, and restore skin’s natural beauty.

Preventative Measures

Prevention is often the best cure. When it comes to sun exposure, that’s easier said than done. However, there are several steps you can take to protect your skin from the elements. Although staying out of the sun all the time may prove to be impossible, here are some practices you can implement to protect yourself from the adverse effects of the sun:

  • Stay in the shade when possible
  • Wearing protective clothing like hats and sunglasses
  • Wear appropriate sunscreen

These practices will help you avoid the pitfalls of sun damaged skin. But avoiding the sun altogether is not healthy as it provides much-needed nutrients like vitamin D. For individuals who are dealing with sun damaged skin, we offer multiple skin care treatments to reverse the effects of sun damage.

Signs of Sun Damaged Skin

Terms like “premature aging” or “sunspots” often follow the visible signs of sun damage. If the problem continues, you may see dry, scaly patches, or deep lines, also known as actinic dermatoses. This overexposure may result in:

  • Age Spots
  • Wrinkles
  • Loose Skin
  • Ruddy or Blotchy Complexion
  • Spider Veins
  • When any of these signs arise, consider starting a skin care plan, which may include cosmetic procedures.

Treatments to Reverse Sun Damaged Skin

At Montante Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics, we offer the most advanced skin care treatments available.


Choosing the proper treatment for sun damaged skin depends on multiple factors like severity and type. For wrinkles, brown spots, and broken blood vessels, skin specialists used to use several different laser treatments. Today, the Neo rejuvenating laser, Aerolase can erase several issues at once. It is safe for all skin tones, causes little to no discomfort, and demands no downtime.


Another treatment we offer to deliver optimal results in reversing sun damage is Microneedling. This dermal roller solution will improve skin appearance by reducing excess pigmentation. This treatment goes far beyond resolving wrinkles.
