How Does Sun Damage Occur?

Sun damage happens when our skin becomes exposed to harmful ultra-violet (UV) rays. These rays come in UVA and UVB categories. UVA rays have long wavelengths and penetrate deep into your skin’s thickest layer. Prolonged exposure to these rays without sunscreen can lead to advanced aging and the appearance of hyperpigmentation. UVB rays are shorter in length, but can still cause a significant amount of damage. These rays burn the top layers of your skin and play a big role in the development of more complicated issues like skin cancer.

What Are the Signs of Hyperpigmentation?

The hallmark signs of having sun-damaged skin include the appearance of brown spots, more pronounced wrinkles, and a rough skin texture. In most cases, exposure to the sun doesn’t cause significant health risks, but these skin concerns can make us feel quite self-conscious. If you are unhappy with the look and feel of your skin, there is help available. At Horizons Health & Wellness, we offer effective hyperpigmentation treatment options.
