While basking in the warm rays of the Phoenix sun may feel nice, it can cause long-term effects which are often harmful to your skin. People see a sunny day as a chance to tan and take a dip in the pool, but without the application of sunscreen, this can cost you smooth wrinkle-free skin. Sunburns and mottled pigmentation are some of the beginning signs of too much sun exposure with little protection of your skin. If you haven’t stopped to consider the amount of sun exposure you receive daily, reading the information below may have you taking an extra second out of your day to apply sunscreen before leaving your home! Believe us, it can save you a lot of heartache as you age.
How Does The Sun Cause Wrinkles?
Beautiful skin is not only a way to avoid spending hundreds of dollars on age-rewinding products, but is also a way to reduce the risk of major health concerns. If you don’t spend long amounts of time in the sun, more serious causes of sun exposure, such as skin cancer and benign tumors may not be a high concern for you as others who do spend lots of time in the sun. However, fine coarse wrinkles caused by Elastosis (the destruction of the elastic and collagen tissue) are produced by normal sun exposure without the regular application of sunscreen. Let’s talk about how these wrinkles form in the first place by ultraviolent (UV) light produced by the sun.
The sun’s ultraviolent light damages the collagen in the second layer of skin, called the dermis. As collagen begins to break down, it loses the ability to support your skin’s structure. Once the structure of your skin begins to weaken, it begins to sag, stretch, and wrinkle. Gross, right? In addition to Elastosis, exposure to the sun’s ultraviolent light can cause:
- Skin Cancer
- Sallowness (a yellowish color of the skin)
- Sun poising
If you suffer from facial wrinkles and saggy skin caused by recent or past sun exposure, you are not alone. Particularly in the Scottsdale and Phoenix areas, men and women suffer from earlier indications of aging, typically caused by the high amount of sun exposure. DreamBody offers two services that can help diminish wrinkles and fine lines in the face. Botox and Fillers add volume, and provide smoother skin to the targeted area. Take a further look into the benefits both services can provide for you and your skin to see which service may be best for you!
Botox for Eliminating Wrinkles
In just 10 minutes you can eliminate the fine course lines caused by sun exposure. Botox is a purified protein that helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The process can be completed on nearly any area of the face you desire. Not only does Botox eliminate wrinkles and saggy skin, but helps prevent further development of these problems. To help sum up your Botox treatment, we have organized the process and benefits of Botox into four easy steps.

Fillers for Saggy Skin
The loss of collagen when exposed to the sun can result in saggy skin, typically around the eyes and cheeks. The hyaluronic acid in Fillers binds with the water in your skin to bring volume to your face. Fillers restore elasticity to the collagen that was previously damaged by the sun, making this service the perfect solution for sun exposure. Below is the Filler process summed up in a few simple steps.

Don’t invest your time and money into buying cosmetic products that don’t seem to work. Most people confuse the acceleration of wrinkles as a normal process of aging, but could have easily retained smooth skin by taking the appropriate steps to protect their skin.
How to Protect Your Skin from the Sun
Protecting your skin from the sun’s ultraviolent rays can have countless benefits alongside smoother and healthier looking skin. Although it is recommended you avoid sun exposure all together, we have chosen simple and easy-to-remember ways to avoid the ultraviolent light while outside.
You don’t have to be headed out to the beach to apply sunscreen. Anytime you risk sun exposure, always remember to apply a sunscreen with and SPF of at least 35. Apply a thick amount of sunscreen to all areas of the skin (avoiding the eyes). Not rubbing the appropriate amount of sunscreen can reduce its effectiveness by up to 50 percent!
Put on a Hat
A hat with a wide brim can help protect your face, head, ears and neck. These areas are exposed to the sun more frequently than others, so a hat can reduce the risk of damaged skin greatly. Choosing a hat with tightly woven fabric will block additional light from penetrating your skin.

Some sunglasses are made especially with UV protection. This helps reflect ultraviolent rays from your eyes, which are highly sensitive to sunlight. Many people forget that eyelids and the surface of the eye are also at risk for skin cancer.
Whether you are tanning by the pool, in a tanning bed, or incidentally, all types of sun exposure can be harmful to your skin. The UV radiation damages your skin while it takes on a bronze glow. The risk for skin cancer and melanoma are more likely to develop whether tanning outside or indoors.
