How Do You Fix Photoaging?

Girl on the background of the sea Floridians love our sun, but it doesn’t always love us back. UV exposure is responsible for a staggering 80% of visible facial aging. At Miami Skin & Vein, many of the common cosmetic concerns we treat result from photoaging.

Sunspots aren’t the only negative aesthetic effect of sun damage. All those days spent soaking up the rays can also contribute to wrinkles, sagging, and uneven texture. More importantly, excess sun exposure can increase your risk of developing skin cancer.

If you have visible signs of photoaging, it’s not too late to adopt new habits and improve your appearance. At our practice, Dr. Shaun Patel has worked with numerous patients to minimize signs of photoaging and create a lifelong plan to avoid future sun damage.

Dr. Patel often utilizes multiple treatments to create a comprehensive skin rejuvenation plan.

What Prevents Future Photoaging?

Limiting your UV exposure is the best way to promote a radiant complexion. The simplest and most powerful anti-aging skincare product is a daily sunscreen. Our practice (and the Skin Cancer Foundation) recommend EltaMD’s broad-spectrum sunscreens. They’re non-comedogenic, lightweight, and gentle on sensitive skin. Wearing UV protective clothing and a hat can also minimize future photoaging.
