Home/Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures/Sun Damage Treatment

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. Many people get sun damage due to spending a lot of time tanning outdoors under the sun’s ultraviolet rays. The same also applies to indoor tanning beds which have also proven to be harmful for the skin.

In the past, treating dark brown spots, age spots, freckles, and other sun damaged conditions had very limited number of options. However, today, with the advancements of medical technology, there are now many methods of removing sun spots. Among the most common treatments are over-the-counter lotions and creams, chemical peels, and laser treatments. In fact, Dr. Miguel Delgado has developed treatment protocols for sun spot and age spot laser removal at his practice.

Our highly qualified medical professionals specialize in laser sun spot removal. Above all, our experts prefer the Palomar Icon Laser for most dark spot removal laser treatments. For dealing with sun damaged conditions like dark brown spots, age spots, sun spots, and freckles, our skin specialists use the Palomar Icon MaxG hand piece. MaxG is safe, quick, and less painful than chemical peels with long-lasting results. Moreover, it can be used to treat any and all forms of sun damage as well as clear deep facial vessels and pigmented lesions at the same time.

While our Marin County age spot laser removal treatments are excellent, the best way to combat sun damage is to prevent it from occurring. Here are some precautions you can take in order to avoid getting sun damage:
