External factors mostly relate to exposure to ultra violet radiation from the sun and have the most detrimental effect, resulting in wrinkling, pigmentation, lost of elasticity and a dehydrated appearance of the skin.
Sunspots, red or brown blemishes on the surface of the skin give the appearance of uneven texture and unhealthy skin. Pigmentation and sun damage occurs mainly on the face, decollete (chest), back of hands and arms.
Good skin care and daily sunblock can prevent further damage but will not erase the damage of the past.
A skin analysis by the professionally trained staff at Cairns Plastic Surgery & Complexion Skin Clinic can assist in the treatment of Skin pigment and Sun damage resulting in a fresh, more toned and improved texture of your skin.
