Sun Damage and Brown Spots

Living in Tucson, Arizona can be especially hard on our skin due to the intense sun and heat. Sun protection is vital to not only preventing skin cancer, but a strong contributing factor to how quickly and gracefully we age. Where does the damage begin? Our skin is protected by melanin, which is the primary source of its color. Too much melanin, known as hyper-pigmentation, creates brown spots on our skin. If our skin has too little melanin, it’s known as hypo-pigmentation, frequently appearing as white or pale patches. When these conditions arise, they can begin concentrating in one particular area or often throughout any area of our body that is exposed to the damaging UVA/UVB rays of the sun. There are many non-invasive treatment options that we offer at our aesthetic spa in Tucson, Arizona. We treat all skin types and one of our registered nurses will recommend the right therapy for your specific skin care goals.

We use a variety of options to treat sun damage. Below are just a few choices to learn more about.
