Skin Care for Sun Damage

We can fight the effects of the sun on your skin with SilkPeel microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and Obagi and SkinCeuticals skin-care products.

For sunspots that keep getting darker, we discuss a treatment program of microdermabrasion with Lumixyl infusion with our patients. This is an effective method that returns your skin to its natural color. When combined with Lumixyl cream used each day, you can enjoy significantly more even skin tone in a matter of weeks.

We also offer our patients Obagi's NuDerm System, which addresses the signs of sun damage and restores the healthy function of skin cells. NuDerm is designed to make your skin look younger and healthier in 18 weeks without the "down-time" associated with more expensive laser options.

Chemical peels may also be a good choice for treating deep wrinkles caused by sun exposure.

Don't forget to protect your skin from the sun! For complete protection from UVA, UVB, and free-radical damage, use a Vitamin C Serum under your sunscreen. We can help you choose the serum that is right for your skin type. Obagi's Healthy Skin Protections SPF 35 contains micronized zinc, which helps protect against both harmful UVA and UVB rays. SkinCeuticals also makes a sport sunscreen that is sweat and water resistant. These are just two of several sunscreens we recommend to our patients.

To make an appointment with Cathy Hart Family Medicine to discuss care for sun-damaged skin, please call 832-585-0095. Our initial 30-minute skin care consultations are free.
