Sun Damage and Sun Spots

Even when living in northern european countries like the UK, many of us will still suffer from too much sun exposure. The sun’s rays contain UV radiation which both burns and ages the skin. Unfortunately, most of us only pay attention when the sun is hot enough to burn us and do not take enough precautions at other times.

Sun exposure is the major cause of skin ageing and it can lead to what are known as ‘solar lentigines’ or sun spots, as well as a host of other long term skin problems.

Sun spots appear on skin surfaces that get the most sun exposure, such as the face and hands. They are flat tan to dark spots and look similar to freckles.

However when it comes to preventing premature skin ageing, you can take control.   Dr Haus recommends the daily use of quality skincare products with an UVA and UVB SPF of at least 30 as well as protective clothing and eyewear at all times. You can also take control to remove the signs of sun damage that has already appeared.

To learn more about how we can improve the appearance of sun spots and damaged skin generally, or to book a consultation with Dr Haus, please telephone us on +44 20 7935 6358, send us an enquiry on the Contact Us Page or email reception@drhausdermatology.com.
