Sun-Damaged Skin

If you have ignored every warning that overexposure to the sun is bad for your skin and now want to try to minimize some of the damage, dermatologists at the Jefferson Laser Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology Center can help.

Our skin specialists can assess your specific skin type and determine if you are a candidate for dermabrasions, chemical peels, collagen injections or other procedures that may help you achieve your goal.

If your skin has been exposed to the sun, you may be at risk for skin cancer. Our dermatologists will give a thorough examination to ensure you do not have any symptoms of the disease. If skin cancer is present, you can turn to the experts at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson and the Bodine Center for Radiation Therapy.

The Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center is a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center and home to internationally renowned cancer physicians and research scientists.

Jefferson's Bodine Center for Radiation Therapy is the region's busiest radiation oncology center and one of the largest programs for cancer treatment in the Delaware Valley.
