While sunlight provides many benefits to our skin and our body as a whole, too much of it can be harmful. Sun damage caused by excessive exposure to sunlight can cause sun spots, freckles, wrinkles, and leathery skin.
What Can Help
- Over-The-Counter Products: There are many lotions, gels, creams, and ointments available in stores which promise to treat sun spots. These work by peeling off the outer layer of skin in hopes of removing the spots. Unfortunately, many times the damage is deeper than just the outer layer and, in such cases, these topical treatments are rendered ineffective. Not to mention, these topical treatments can also be extremely slow in producing any results and some may even be useless.
- Chemical Peels: Chemical peels are better and faster than any topical treatment. A certified physician applies the chemical peel to the skin causing it to peel over. As a result, this exposes a new layer of skin underneath and kickstarts the body’s natural regenerating process
- Laser: Laser treatments for sun damage are also known as photofacial rejuvenation. These treatments use laser devices that are by far the most effective method when it comes to treating sun damaged skin. One of the most popular devices is Palomar Icon. This sun spot removal laser is highly effect and remove any dark spots on the face much quicker than most other methods. Once the skin heals, it is clearer and smoother than before.
