Sun Damage Reversal Treatment
UV rays start damaging our skin since the first exposure in childhood. Over time, accumulated UV rays cause sun damage that results in wrinkling, brown spots, melasma (please see how we define melasma) as well as skin cancers.
Sun damage skin treatment is different for each person.
True sun damage skin treatment should involve the following:
- Evaluation of any actual skin cancers and their prompt treatment
- Examination for any pre-skin cancers (Actinic Keratosis) and coming up a treatment plan to eliminate them before they become cancerous
- Assessing the level of sun damage
- Plan for brown spot removal (which indicate sun damage via UV rays)
- Plan for DNA damage repair (remove DNA sun damage)
- Removal of the DNA damaged skin to promote healthy cell growth (sun damage skin turn-over)
While there is no melasma cure, treating sun damage is very possible. From prescription creams combined with chemical peels and lasers, the sun damaged skin can be removed and allow for new skin growth.
Sun damage can be exfoliated using chemical peels that remove the appropriate depth of cells. Chemical peels for sun damage can be applied to face, neck, chest, shoulders as well as arms and legs. Sun damage reversal treatment has the added benefit of minimizing brown spots, reducing the chance of developing skin cancer, diminishing fine wrinkles and overall rejuvenating the skin.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
