Physician Feedback

On Call with Amy Taub, M.D.: Sun damage and how to treat it.
Photoaging refers to the damage that is done to the skin from prolonged exposure, over a person’s lifetime, to UV radiation. Sun freckles (also known as liver spots, although they have nothing to do with the liver), irregular pigmentation and dilated blood vessels (often referred to as “broken” blood vessels) are some examples.
