The month of July calls for fun in the sun! With summer in full swing, many men and women are getting outside to the beach and the pools. However, this may come with a downside: sun damaged skin. Both men and women who do not routinely protect their skin from the sun’s UV rays may find themselves with the symptoms of sun damaged skin, which affects both the appearance and the health of the skin. Some of the more common symptoms of sun damaged skin include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Increased skin laxity
- Hyperpigmentation (sun spots, freckles, etc.)
- Poor skin texture and tone
When these concerns begin to arise, it’s a good idea to talk to the team at SkinSmart Dermatology in Sarasota, Florida about the advantages of using laser and light therapies for the treatment of sun damaged skin.
What are some laser and light treatments used for treating sun damage?
At SkinSmart Dermatology, we offer the following laser and light services for patients to consider to reduce the symptoms of sun damaged skin:
- IPL photofacial

Which treatment is right for me?
A consultation appointment and evaluation from Drs. Elizabeth Callahan and William Adams is the first step in finding out which laser and light treatment is best for your situation. Examining the skin and the severity of sun damage helps our professionals make an educated decision regarding the most effective treatment for you.
