It is difficult to avoid sun exposure living in Phoenix. The Arizona climate allows for high temperatures and sunny skies all year round, exposing your skin to UV rays that can damage your skin. It is estimated that 80-90% of aging of the skin is caused by exposure to the sun’s rays and it is cumulative over the years. Sun damage is responsible for many of the skin problems that occur as you age, including lines, wrinkles and discoloration. However, there are effective treatments for sun-damaged skin that can help you look more youthful and healthy.

Obviously, the best way to avoid sun damage to your skin is to protect it. Good sunscreen and protective clothing can help, but there is always some exposure when you go outside. Over the years, your uncovered skin is likely to show signs of sun damage, especially in frequently exposed areas like your face, hands and upper chest. Sun spots, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation are common, but there are a few effective treatments that can reverse these symptoms and improve the health of your skin.

Exfoliation

The platelets in your blood can be used to treat your skin and reduce the signs of sun damage to your skin. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatments uses your own blood to remove a high concentration of platelets that can be injected or microneedled into the skin. Platelets offer healing properties that can reverse sun damage and increase collagen for more youthful-appearing skin.

Microneedling

When your skin is perforated, even in the smallest increments, healing occurs and collagen production is increased. Microneedling uses this natural action to improve the health of your skin. Using a micropen with tiny needles, sun-damaged skin can be treated, creating a healing response that fights lines, wrinkles and discolorations. When combined with serums like PRP or hyaluronic acid, microneedling can have dramatic benefits for reversing the signs of sun-damaged skin.
