What are my options for sun spot removal?
I've noticed some sun spots on my arms. I work outside as a landscaper and am constantly exposed to the sun. What are my options to get these sun spots removed from my arms?
I started noticing sun spots after spending a considerable amount of time on the beach. I wore sunscreen and a large hat religious during all the sunny days, but my chest, shoulders, and arms were still covered with sunspots. While prescription creams especially those with hydroquinone are affordable and helped the spots to fade, I exercised patience. The idea of using bleaching creams was also not appealing to me as high percentages of hydroquinone can cause cancer. To permanently remove the spots quickly I considered other effective treatment options like Microdermabrasion, non-ablative laser and intense pulsed light. But they require more than one treatment to remove all the blemishes. I couldn’t use chemical peels as I have sensitive skin while fraction CO2 lasers have longer recovery time. Cryosurgery was the best treatment option for me as it’s a one treatment method and had minimal discomfort.
