Sun Damage

We couldn’t survive without the sun, but the sun’s rays can be harmful to our skin. Ultraviolet rays can penetrate the skin and damage it.

Sun damage may appear as fine lines, sunburns, changes to skin tone, hyperpigmentation (such as brown spots), and even skin cancer. The skin produces melanin (a dark pigment) to protect itself from the sun, which is why sun-damaged skin becomes tanned or develops dark spots. Wearing sunscreen on a regular basis can reduce your risk of sun damage, but even with a lifelong vigilant effort, anyone could still develop skin problems due to sun damage.

Recommended Treatment:

Not all light is damaging to the skin; in fact, the intense pulsed light in Dr. Bitter’s FotoFacial® procedure is proven to improve skin quality and health. Using broadband light technology, the FotoFacial® renews the skin and stimulates collagen formation. This treatment can reduce a variety of symptoms of sun damage and can eradicate fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, freckles, and an uneven skin tone. The FotoFacial® procedure will combat sun damage and make your skin look healthy, clear, smooth, and youthful. Dr. Bitter also offers his own natural skin care line, including a velvet-soft matte, broad-spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen lotion that you can use to prevent future sun damage.
