To protect itself from the damaging effects of the sun, your skin
increases its production of the dark brown pigment called melanin. The
extra melanin makes your skin look darker or sun-tanned. In some cases,
the sun causes an uneven increase in melanin production, which produces
irregular coloring or pigmentation of the skin. The sun can also cause a
permanent stretching (dilation) of small blood vessels, giving your
skin a mottled, reddish appearance.
If your skin shows signs of sun damage your dermatologist can recommend the correct products and procedure to correct and prevent further damage. We have a full array of products at RxSkinCenter to treat and prevent sun damage and premature aging caused by harmful UV rays.
