Sun damaged skin can have several characteristics that need to be addressed with a dermatological professional. This includes sun spots, freckling, and even the early signs of aging including increased fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to causing imperfections on the skin, sun exposure can also contribute to one’s risk of developing skin cancer. At Greater Miami Skin and Laser Center, we are committed to providing treatments that reverse UV damage.
Determining UV damage
During an evaluation with Dr. Martin Zaiac, patients of the Miami Beach and Hallandale Beach communities will be able to determine the severity of UV damage on their skin. Some of the signs include:
- Sun spots/age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Premature aging
- Skin color changes
Additionally, if there are any new skin growths, tags, or even changes in existing moles, patients should undergo a skin cancer screening and a possible biopsy to ensure skin cancer is not present. Skin cancer can be treated in the earliest stages in many cases, which is why early detection is critical to survival. We encourage patients to have skin cancer screenings every year with a qualified dermatologist.
