How To Get Rid Of Sunspots
There are many treatments for sun spots as explained in this video. You can go from simple to evasive treatment, and all options are explained here.
Today, we're going to talk about how to remove sun spots. The patients often complain that they get brown or irregular marks on their faces which they came to remove because they can't cover them with makeup. The easiest way to assess patient's skin is to use special instruments to look at the skin in detail to see whether or not there is not only some sun damage but any other alterations to the skin.
We often use what is called a dermatoscope or high intensity light which helps us identify any areas on the skin where there are potential areas of some sun damage and sun spots. The easiest way to prevent sun spots or certainly prevent more coming out is to use regular sunscreen. This often helps protect the skin against the UV damage and also stops those brown marks coming out.
If patients present already having brown marks or sun spots, then we often offer them a variety of treatments which range from skin care creams all the way through to laser treatments. Certainly, it is a lot easier to start at the lower end of the scale to see if simple treatments often work because often, we find that patients that have got tiny, small areas of brown pigmentation don't want excessive treatments and that's where prescription skin care creams really come into their own. The simple treatment that patients apply daily, often for four to six weeks, occasionally, they get a little bit of redness or dryness but this normally settles down as they begin to tolerate the creams.
If, at that juncture, the brown spots still remain, alternative treatments can be offered. That's how to get rid of sun spots. .
