Exposure to the sun can damage the skin, cause discolorations, and even age the skin. Sun damage may appear here or there as small freckles. Over time, the damage worsens. Darker spots or poor skin tone and texture may develop. With offices in Stockton, Lodi, and Elk Grove, Dr. Gerald Bock helps patients maintain youthful, healthy skin through treatments for sun damage.
Preventing sun damage
Being proactive in protecting your skin is crucial. We understand that the warmth of the sun feels good, especially on a beautiful day. A broad-spectrum sunscreen should be worn daily regardless of the weather. Constant exposure to ultraviolet light leads to more damage and aging skin. The effects of sun damage accumulate over time so it is important to protect your skin from further damage.
Treating sun damaged skin
Prevention is the ideal treatment in combating sun damage. However, in many cases, the damage has already occurred. Signs of sun damage include brown spots, wrinkles, and poor skin texture. Dr. Bock offers BroadBand Light (BBL) treatments, microlaserpeel, and laser resurfacing to remove sun damage and improve skin quality. Treatments help patients regain the brighter, more supple skin of their youth.
BBL is an innovative therapy to treat skin problems associated with sun damage and aging. Dr. Bock can precisely treat sun spots, facial veins, and other conditions. The most commonly treated areas include the face, neck, hands, chest, and shoulders. Light energy heats the skin and is absorbed by the targeted areas. The spots may darken before flaking off. Downtime is not necessary.
BBL therapy has a number of benefits including:
- Safe – Treatments can be adjusted for each patient based on skin type.
- Effective – BBL can be done alone or with other treatments for smoother, more even skin tone. A series of treatments or periodic touch ups help maintain the results.
- Gentle skin rejuvenation – Treatments give patients brighter, more even skin tone.
