The Sun’s Effects on the Skin

Gravity, genetics, and age all play a role in the development of wrinkles, lines, and lax skin, but sun damage or “photo-aging” is the main culprit.

UV rays enter your skin, affecting the DNA and altering skin quality and appearance. For those with very fair skin, it takes only five to ten minutes exposed to the sun for the damage to begin. While sunlight provides your body with needed vitamin D, the damage caused by UV rays may cause you to rethink how much time you spend in the sun with your skin unprotected.

The Symptoms of Sun Damage

Sun damage to your skin structure can include any of the following:

Dry, flaky skin

Fine lines, wrinkles

Sagging skin

Lax skin


Age spots


Actinic keratosis

Uneven skin tone

Rough skin texture

Crow’s feet

Laugh lines

Frown lines

Creases on brow

We have assembled some of the most advanced skin restoration technologies available in the world, all in one location. If your skin is showing the signs of sun damage, we invite you to discover Austin’s premier skincare clinic, where every procedure is under the direction of our onsite, board-certified medical doctors. Our treatments include:

Evolve Body Contouring

Evolve is a next-generation body sculpting system that emits radiofrequency energy (RF), generating heat in the subdermal layers of your skin, combined with a vacuum and energy pulses to remodel and reshape your physique—without surgery.


If you have sagging, aging skin, lost definition at the jawline, or deep creases and lines, FaceTite can work wonders for your look. The device emits subdermal RF energy to tighten and recontour your face without surgery.


Sun damage can affect the skin on your body, leaving it looking crepey, loose, and aged. BodyTite treatments can smooth and firm the skin on the abdomen, back, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms, knees, or neck for a firmer, more youthful appearance.

RF Microneedling

For deep skin rejuvenation, RF microneedling does magic. The treatment triggers natural skin regeneration, leaving you with firmer, more supple skin.

Chemical Peels

A custom chemical peel will remove the upper layer of sun-damaged skin to create an evenly-toned, more youthful appearance and feel.

IPL Photofacial

IPL treatments involve targeted light energy applied to the skin to remove hyperpigmentation and trigger natural skin cell growth for firmer, smoother, younger skin.
