Photoaging Skin Disorder

Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Serving Reston, D.C., Tysons Corner, Ashburn, Virginia.

Some skin conditions have no known cause. Many permanent skin disorders may arise from a combination of genetic susceptibility and environmental stress, such as illness, allergens, or exposure to irritants. In this article we will discuss the photoaging skin disorder.

What is photoaging skin disorder?

Photoaging is premature aging of the skin caused by repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV) primarily from the sun, but also from artificial UV sources.

How to avoid photoaging skin disorder?

Patients should try to avoid suntanning beds, which accelerate photoaging skin disorder. Patients should be educated to avoid midday sun exposure when ultraviolet radiation is most intense, to participate in outdoor activities early or late in the day, to avoid sunbathing (even with sunscreens), and to seek shady, covered areas rather than direct sunlight.
We have more information about how to get rid of photoaging skin disorder through Photodynamic therapy (PDT). Feel free to read more about Photoaging treatment through PhotoDynamic Therapy here.

How to prevent photoaging?

  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight
  • Careful with what you wear
  • Scope out your scalp
  • Use scrub for your back
  • Visit a Dermatologist
Caution: Avoid the use of products that expose your skin to different allergies. we do lose billions of skin cells every day from our bodies, so helping the process along isn’t such a bad thing. In fact, it makes sense to remove dead skin cells before they clog pores and become pimples. Visit WellMedica to learn more about the skin disorder you have and more treatments to exfoliate skin and generate new cell growth, and are often used in combination with acne creams or gels to allow the medication to penetrate further into the skin. Potential risks include redness, blisters, scaling and crusting, scarring, infection, and abnormal skin coloring.

“Dr. Dima is very knowledgeable and very compassionate. She always makes me feel like I’m a priority and makes me so comfortable about my treatments. I think she would be great for teenagers and their skin issues and I would recommend any of my family to go see her.” *

– Kendra

“Dr. Ali not only fixed the physical appearance of my scar, but healed the psychological and emotional scar it caused. She  genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her patients and I trust her implicitly.” *

– B. Paget

“Dr. Ali is not only a beautiful, highly intelligent woman but also an amazing healer. She treated my face, ravaged over time byrosacea, coupled with multiple broken facial blood vessels and transformed what was ruddy, red and sometimes purple hued skin into a clearcomplexioned healthy and totally makeup free face, and I thank her most graciously.” *

– Chris D.

“I think Dr. Ali is very honest and upfront. I didn’t feel I had to get 10 opinions before making a decision. I never feel pressured. Everyone is professional and top notch, the type of people you want to work with. I think the whole office atmosphere is wonderful, I feel friendly with everyone that works there and I love the products. When you don’t come often you feel guilty. It’s usually a family affair to come see Dr. Ali; it’s me, my daughter and granddaughter, it’s a 2 hour drive so we make a day of it.” *

– Bonnie P.

“When I see Dr. Ali I am treated superbly in everyway, I would not go anywhere else! I wish my family lived locally so they could see her too.” *
