Sunspots are pigmentated areas of the skin that are often caused by extensive sun exposure. Environmental damage on the skin can cause the skin to look unhealthy or age faster. Discoloration that develops on the skin and is determined to be “sunspots” can be treated with the help of a trained dermatologist. Sunspots can appear anywhere where sun exposure has occurred, typically on the face, upper chest, back, shoulders, arms, and legs. Wherever these imperfections are, the team at Remington Laser Dermatology Centre as a solution for treatment.
How are sunspots treated?
The best treatment option for sunspots is typically a light-based therapy, either IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment or laser-based therapies. These treatments can penetrate deep within the skin’s layers to fade away sunspots and other pigmentation problems, and continues to be the best method of treatment for adult patients. Additionally, patients may ask about other therapies that can be used in also improving the skin’s overall texture and tone, turning back time and smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles. With the help of Drs. Todd and Kent Remington, many patients can find a treatment option that works best for their unique needs.
