Can you remove a sun spot from your skin?
I am starting to notice sun spots on different parts of my body. What would be a recommendation to either remove these liver spots from my body, or at least lighten them so the color of my skin looks less blotchy?
When I started to form sunspots, I was apprehensive that they were permanent. However, my dermatologist assured me that this was not the case. Sunspots can easily be removed from all areas of the skin with painless procedures. For a case of mild sunspots, I was given a prescription cream that lightened the pigment of the skin. The doctor told me that there were other options if the cream was not effective, such as freezing, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. However, after two months of using the prescription cream, I can say that the sunspots have significantly faded and no further treatment is necessary. She told me that if I continue to get sun exposure without protection the sun damage will cause skin problems again. Knowing this I am now very diligent with wearing hats and sunglasses and always making sure to wear sunscreen when I go outside. I am hoping that I will prevent new age spots from forming and providing healthy skin care for the rest of my life!
I have noticed sun spots twice this year, and both of these times I used different treatment methods. The first time I used prescription creams which I call they low commitment sun spot removal because all I needed was to apply the cream twice in a day and wait for the spots to fade with time gradually. The cream worked for me because the spots were on easy to reach places which is my face, shoulders and cleavage area. The second time the sun sports were on my back so I couldn’t use the hydroquinone cream. Instead I opted for microdermabrasion which felt more like a spa treatment. During this spot removal treatment, my skin felt as if it was being exfoliated. Afterwards, the spots were no longer visible and the skin texture was smooth considering I also had dark spots from acne breakouts.
