Lasers we offer to treat sun damaged skin

The Ruby laser delivers light pulses that target pigmented cells to effectively minimize sun spots and produce clearer skin.
Other laser treatments for sun damaged skin are:
The Nd:YAG strongly absorbs melanin in the skin to treat skin pigmentation conditions, such as age spots, resulting in more youthful-looking skin.
CLEAR + BRILLIANT
The Clear + Brilliant laser creates microscopic treatment zones to replace damaged skin with a healthier skin layer and to reduce aging signs.
LaseMD stimulates the body’s own healing processes to increase collagen levels and cell turnover, resulting in clearer and more youthful-looking skin.
Alternatives to laser treatment for sun damaged skin include:
- Chemical peels are minimally invasive aesthetic treatments that exfoliate the skin to treat damaged layers and reveal smoother and clearer skin below.
- Our board-certified dermatologists may also recommend a personalized skincare regimen that includes topical creams and gels for face or chest sun damage treatment.
- Combination treatments, such as laser therapy with tranexamic acid for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, may also provide an effective sun damage treatment. Our dermatologists always customize each patient’s skincare regimen after undergoing sun damage treatment.

Questions and Answers
Q: What does sun damage look like?
A: Sun damage appears in a variety of forms. Prolonged ultraviolet (UV) exposure without protection can lead to the formation of lines, wrinkles, discoloration, roughness, and sagging skin.
Q: How do I choose the best sun damage treatment?
A: Determining the best treatment for sun damage on the face or body depends on the type and degree of damage that needs to be addressed. Sun damage laser treatments, chemical peels, and a variety of other cosmetic procedures are each designed to target a specific skin issue. Since every case is unique, it is best to see a board-certified dermatologist for a skin evaluation.
Q: How many sessions do I need?
A: Depending on the severity of your sun damage, your desired results, and the specific laser used, multiple sessions may be recommended. Your dermatologist will discuss this during your consultation.
Q: When will I see results?
A: Depending on the laser device used and the severity of your skin condition, the results can vary from several days to weeks. Since collagen production takes time, improvements continue to develop for several months after the treatment plan is complete.
Q: How long do results last?
A: You can expect to see lasting results that improve both the overall appearance and quality of your skin. You can extend your results by using sun protection and medical-grade skincare products.
Q: How can I prevent sun damage?
A: Since it is impossible to avoid sun exposure entirely, take these measures to help reduce premature skin aging and prevent the risk of skin cancer:
- Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen daily
- Wear sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats
- Avoid all forms of tanning
- Avoid the peak UV Hours (10:00 am – 4:00 pm)
