Sun Damage

Lentigos, sun spots, "liver spots," wrinkling, and uneven pigmentation are all due to chronic over-exposure to the sun. 

One of our main goals is education to help you understand the risks associated with chronic sun exposure and the need for daily sun protection.

As physicians, we are concerned with the medical implications of over-exposure, including the development of actinic keratoses, abnormal moles, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.

Many patients are also concerned with the cosmetic effects of sun damage and seek to reverse the signs of aging. We can address these concerns during your appointment. Call us at 615-212-3012 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Amy Valet or Dr. Casey Shaba today.
