Sun spots are brown patches of skin that appear after years of sun exposure. They are usually harmless, but can make the skin look old and damaged. Therefore, many men and women choose to undergo brown spot removal laser skin care to have the spots removed.
Explanation of Sun Spots
Sun spots, otherwise referred to as freckles, age spots, liver spots, or benign pigmented lesions, result from prolonged UV exposure. They are most often found on the face, shoulders, arms, hands, back, and chest. Sun spots can prematurely age the skin and create an uneven skin tone. Fortunately, these lesions can be safely and effectively removed with laser skin care treatments. Most patients only need one or two laser treatments, each typically lasting approximately 20 minutes.
How Sun Spots Can Be Prevented
Laser sun spot removal permanently diminishes the appearance of brown spots, but it can’t keep new spots from forming as the skin continues to age. However, you can prevent the development of new sun spots by limiting your direct exposure to the sun’s UV rays. Be diligent about finding shade and wearing UV-protective clothing. If you have fair skin that burns easily, be sure to use sunscreen with at least SPF-30 whenever you venture outdoors.
The Laser Sun Spot Removal Process
First, you’ll need to meet with a physician to make sure that your sun spots are benign. Once your physician approves you for laser sun spot removal, contact your local laser skin care specialist to schedule a consultation appointment. During your consultation, your cosmetic laser specialist will determine how many spots you need removed to achieve your desired appearance.
