WHAT ARE SUN SPOTS?
Sun spots, also known as liver spots or Lentigines, are spots on the skin that are usually brown in colour. They are often harmless, but you should beware any changes to them over time, such as their growth, or changes in shape for instance. If they become darker in colour, they should also be checked. Generally, sun spots are more of a cosmetic nuisance and can be treated in a variety of ways, depending upon the individual and skin type.
Sun spots are caused by over exposure to the sun. They often affect the face, but can also affect other areas of the body that is exposed to the sun. They are not dangerous, however, they should be checked by a doctor after their appearance, and especially if they change shape, or colour or become irritated.
As with all skin conditions, you can help protect against sun sports by not being out in the sun when it is at its most intense, by wearing adequate sun protection and clothing and ensuring that sun protection is applied liberally and often.
The treatments available will depend upon your individual skin type, extent of the sun spots and skin structure. Your treatment will be assessed and discussed with you during your initial consultation. However, the range of treatments available include Laser resurfacing, facial peels, skin needling using dermapen, plus a range of other treatments depending upon your circumstances.
