Sun damage can start to appear well into the thirties, especially if you haven’t been protecting your skin properly from UV rays in your thirties. If you start to notice dark spots appearing on your skin, consult your dermatologist to make sure that they are not the beginnings of skin cancer. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a good treatment for precancerous lesions if caught early enough.
Sun Spot Treatments
Sun spots can be treated in a variety of ways, including laser treatments, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. In the thirties, sun spots should be just starting to appear, so aggressive treatments such as CO2 lasers may not be needed. We will discuss your sun spots and the best treatment for them during your consultation. Depending on how many, how dark, and how big the spots are, different treatments for those in their thirties may be recommended.
No matter what your age, it’s never too late to start wearing sunscreen every day! Sunscreen can help protect against harmful UV rays from the sun, and it’s important to wear it every day for those in their thirties, not just to the beach or the pool.
