Sun-damaged skin? Learn about effective treatment options

With all of the fun outdoor activities available in the San Diego area, the sun is an important part of our southern Californian lifestyle. But unfortunately, this means that it is almost impossible to avoid sun damage to our skin. At Skin & Vein Institute in Encinitas, California, Board-Certified Dermatologist Dr. Amanda Lloyd works with patients to identify effective treatment options for their specific needs.
Effective Treatment Options for Sun Damage in Encinitas Area

Wrinkles and hyperpigmentation

The sun’s rays can lead to a variety of imperfections in our skin, ranging from unsightly brown and red spots to fine lines and deep wrinkles. For patients seeking to revitalize their appearance after sun damage, there are multiple options:

  • Clear + Brilliant® and Fraxel® Dual are excellent options for removing brown spots and other types of pigmentation while simultaneously building collagen to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Excel V™ can help erase small red dots or small red spider veins on your face, as well as brown spots, for a more even skin tone and complexion.
  • Neuromodulators and dermal fillers can help smooth out active wrinkles and rehydrate sun-damaged skin.
  • Dr. Lloyd will also help formulate a daily skincare regimen that will help you take care of your skin at home on a daily basis.

Skin cancer

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, but the good news is that it is typically highly treatable if it is caught and removed at an early stage. Dr. Lloyd performs annual skin exams to help detect any cancerous lesions at the earliest stage possible. If you have a cancerous spot, Dr. Lloyd will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is appropriate for the type of skin cancer that you have, its location on your body, and what stage it is. For cancerous spots in sensitive areas (such as around the nose, eyes, ears, mouth, or genitals) or recurrent lesions, Mohs micrographic surgery can be a highly effective option. Dr. Lloyd is a trained Mohs micrographic surgeon and is highly skilled at preserving as much healthy skin as possible while minimizing scarring.
