Over the course of many years, unprotected exposure to sunlight can alter the appearance and consistency of the skin. Furthermore, it may lead to malignancies in the skin that may go undetected for many years.

After careful evaluation, it is generally possible to reverse many of the cosmetic effects produced on the skin with a combination of topical treatments as well as interventions using chemical peels, Intense Photo Light (IPL) and/or various lasers.
