What Is Sun Damage?

Next time you go to the beach you may bring back something besides a suntan. Sun damage is a common condition that occurs from over exposure to the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Overexposure to the sun cannot only cause the skin to prematurely age, it can also cause a variety of skin conditions, from sunburn to skin cancer. Spending too much time outdoors without adequate protection from the sun is the main cause of sun damage. People with fair skin are much more susceptible to developing problems from prolonged sun exposure.

There are a variety of treatments for sun damage. See our treatment video for more information.
