These are some of the signs of sun damaged skin that either a TCA chemical peel or ZO Skin Restoration systems improves:
The sun increases melanin production, causing age spots, which can be brown, black or even gray. You may see them on your chest, shoulders, hands, arms, and forehead.
Lines, folds, and wrinkles:
Because the sun breaks down collagen and elastin, fine lines and wrinkles result, especially on the chest and the hands.
While it’s not known if these larger brown and tan spots are caused by sun exposure, they often appear on areas of the skin that get the most sunlight. Sometimes raised off the skin and having a scaly dry appearance.
Since the sun literally sucks out moisture and natural oils that lubricate the skin, years of repeated sun exposure can leave you looking dehydrated and flaky.
Constantly exposing your skin to the sun causes it to become rough, thin and irregular because of the depletion of collagen. UV rays can also cause other textural anomalies, as well as skin cancer and pre-cancerous lesions.
