Proper sun protection can prevent a host of different problems due to overexposure, such as sun spots, age spots and fine wrinkles, in addition to the most obvious — sunburn. Sunburn is literally a burn injury of your skin from ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The consequence of this damage is inflammation of the skin. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Tanya Atagi M.D, F.A.C.S, of Atagi Plastic Surgery and Atagi Skin Aesthetics, recommends that the people of Denver wear a minimum of SPF 30 sunscreen daily – rain or shine. UV damage from daily exposure, even to ambient light, can cause a whole host of problems and aging beyond sunburns and sun spots; it can cause facial fine lines, deep wrinkles, brown patches, lackluster skin and texture changes.
Preventative care is the best way to avoid these problems, but if you have sun damage already, Atagi Plastic Surgery and Atagi Skin Aesthetics can help. The BBL Photofacial is a non-invasive cosmetic laser treatment, ideal for reversing photodamage. Precisely filtered broadband light (BBL) treats damaged skin using scientifically determined wavelengths to target specific problems.
