What Are Sunspots? 

Our skin’s contact with UV radiation leads to sunspots, and as a result of repeated sun exposure, they may gradually worsen over time. These spots are also referred to as liver spots, age spots, and solar lentigines. Although you can also develop these sun spots at an earlier age, they are most commonly seen in adults over the age of 40.

In the form of flat, concentrated areas of brown pigments, sunspots are visible over the skin. You have pigmented cells called melanocytes, which multiply when exposed to UV light. In actuality, exposure to the sun is the main factor in early aging, and sun rays are responsible for 80% of the skin’s obvious age indications.

It is said that the excessiveness of anything can cause harm and likewise the extra exposure to the sun is responsible for all the fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots on your face. 

Well, the unfair fact is that when you were young, your beach visits gave you tan skin which you loved to see, and when you entered your 40s, the same sun exposure can bring sunspots to your body.

To make sure they aren’t something else, it is a good idea to see a dermatologist, if you have blemishes that seem to be sunspots.

4 Effective Sunspots Removal Treatments You Can Consider

There are several sunspot treatments you can opt for to remove or at least minimize the visibility of sunspots. 

Here are 4 of the most effective ways you can consider for the sunspots on face treatment: 

1. Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light Therapy), also referred to as a photo facial, targets pigmented cells using laser technology. It concentrates on the black patches by using a range of different wavelengths, which causes the cells to heat up and be eliminated from your body. Afterward, fresh cells replace them. 

The advanced IPL machine is the latest cutting-edge technology to remove undesirable tattoos, repair sun spots, as well as working against acne scars. They have radio frequencies that will make your skin softer and give you an all-over glow.

2. Chemical peels 

A chemical peel is also one of the most effective ways to reduce sunspots. The chemical peel helps in shredding the upper layer of the skin that is covered with damaged skin cells. As the chemical peel works, it will bring out a revealing newer and healthier skin that was hidden underneath the skin. 

Chemical peels also is a source to produce collagen, which is a protein in the skin that is present in fine lines and wrinkles. 

This procedure requires a few days as the acid solution is applied to the face and within a few days the dead skin falls off, giving new and refreshing skin. 

Guaranteed desired results with this sunspot treatment, while it also improves your complexion. 

3. Microneedling 

Sunspots can be improved with the use of microneedling as well – a procedure that activates your body’s natural healing reactions. It delicately penetrates the skin at a safe depth by rolling small, thin needles on a palm roller or a microneedling pen. UV rays and other factors compromise your skin, so this stimulates collagen production and repairs damaged areas.

This treatment not only helps you get rid of sunspots on the face but also brightens your skin, and reduces acne scars, stretch marks, and other skin issues.

4. Laser Resurfacing 

A wand-like device is used to transfer laser beams during laser resurfacing, which removes the sun-damaged skin layer. Then, fresh skin can develop in its place. The time duration of treatment depends on the number of sunspots on the skin as it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours because this sunspot treatment requires time and patience. 

Although it is the most effective treatment you have to wait for 10 to 21 days for the healing process.
