What Are Sunspots?
Sunspots – also called age spots, liver spots, or solar lentigines- are small flat discolorations that appear on any part of your body, especially the parts that are more exposed to the sun. They are harmless, but they reduce our esthetics. On the brighter side, there are effective, minimally invasive procedures that can be performed to remove sunspots and restore appealing looks.
Causes Of Sunspots
Just as the name suggests, sunspots are a result of prolonged exposure to the sun or tanning beds (UVA and UVB light). When exposed to the UV radiation, overactive pigment cells are triggered to produce melanin in high concentrations. With time, the melanin becomes clumped up, forming dark/brown spots on the exposed parts of the skin.
Note that spots on your skin can also form as a result of underlying conditions, such as melanoma, a serious type of skin cancer. See a cosmetologist immediately if you have a spot that:
- Is quickly increasing in size
- Has a weird combination of colours
- Has a crooked border
- Is itchy, red, or bleeding
- Has very dark pigmentation
Certain factors increase the likelihood of developing sunspots. These include:
- Genetic predisposition to freckles
- Light skin and red hair
- Frequent and intense sun exposure or tanning
- Age (persons of 40yrs and above are more prone)
Sunspots Treatment Methods
At Lumiskins, we provide advanced and effective procedures for treating sunspots. Our methods are devised to work on any skin type or colour of sunspots (dark or any shade of brown) without causing harm to the surrounding skin tissue. Before recommending any treatment procedures, our cosmetologist thoroughly examines your spots to ensure that they’re just sunspots and not any potentially dangerous dark marks.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Therapy
Sunspots are accumulated melanin in small clumps. Intense pulse light therapy utilizes high-intensity pulses of light to destroy the accumulated melanin, which eliminates the dark spots. This treatment also stimulates the production of collagen, which repairs the skin for a smoother and fresher look. One IPL session is not enough to acquire the desired results, which means that you’ll have to undergo several treatment sessions. Each IPL session takes an average of thirty minutes, depending on the area being treated.
Laser therapy, just like IPL targets and destroys the accumulated melanin without causing damage to the skin surface. However, lasers utilize specific wavelengths of light to destroy the sunspots. When laser light is focused on the sunspots, the melanin pigment absorbs the light, which in turn heats up and destroys the cells. Laser therapy also triggers the rejuvenation of healthier skin cells for overall skin improvement. Laser therapy is the ultimate choice for deeply pigmented dark spots. Several sessions are required for an ideal outcome.
Our latest technology and machinery is the reason why we are the only option when you are thinking about Lumiskins Botox fillers.
