Skin Conditions We Treat

Sun Damage

Ultraviolet (UV) rays are an invisible form of radiation. They can pass through your skin and damage your skin cells. Sunburns are a sign of skin damage from ultraviolet radiation. UV rays can cause skin damage during any season or at any temperature and penetrate through clouds. Damage from UV rays includes eye problems, wrinkles, skin spots, and skin cancer.

To protect yourself:

  • Stay out of the sun when it is strongest (between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.)
  • Use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher
  • Wear protective clothing
  • Wear wraparound sunglasses that provide 100 percent UV ray protection
  • Avoid sunlamps and tanning beds

Check your skin regularly for changes in the size, shape, color, or feel of birthmarks, moles, and skin lesions and for the development of new skin lesions or growths – all of which can be a sign of skin cancer.  We can help evaluate suspicious, symptomatic, and changing skin lesions and help with some manifestations of sun damage. If you are concerned about any skin lesions, please call our office to schedule a consultation: 360-254-5267.
