Aultcare for Sun Damaged Skin

sunThose who spend too much time in the sun soon realize that their skin is paying the price through photoaging, lines, wrinkles, and age spots.  These premature skin problems can make you look older than your actual age.  Andrea Markowitz of Health Key suggests treatment options in “Treating Sun-Damaged Skin.”  There are a number of things you can do to revitalize dry and patchy skin and fade spots, lines, and wrinkles.

Check with insurance companies like Aultcare to see if they cover these dermatological treatments.  There are many non-surgical treatments that you can get to improve the look of your skin.  Botox softens wrinkles; chemical peels remove the top layer of your skin to reveal an improved look; and collagen injections can help fill lines, wrinkles, and even scars.  Dermabrasion abrades the skin and causes new smoother skin to grow.  Microdermabrasion is a milder form that can be used for moderate skin damage.  Tazarotene is a retinoid cream that can reduce photoaging signs.  Tretinoin is another cream which treats wrinkles and other skin problems.

There are surgical treatments that can take a more intense approach to skin correction.  With laser skin resurfacing, the appearance of wrinkles and scars can be reduced.  Non-ablative resurfacing is a laser treatment that also uses electrical energy to correct skin.  Intense pulsed light therapy is another surgical treatment that can be used to correct sun damaged skin.  If

Assurant Health or another insurer does not cover treatments, there are some over the counter remedies that will save money.  Creams and lotions with retinol, copper or copper peptides, alpha-hydroxy acids, or antioxidants can help improve the appearance of your skin.  Most importantly though, take care of your skin by always wearing sunblock and hats whenever possible.
