At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics of Williamsville, NY, Dr. Jack Bertolino regularly works with patients who present with unwanted sunspots and other types of sun damage. Many will find that there are a variety of treatments and techniques available to address these areas of hyperpigmentation.
Below are just a few of the solutions that might be used to address sunspots and common pigmentation problems:
- Chemical peel. Chemical peels are a popular skincare treatment that uses chemicals to exfoliate and remove the outer layers of skin. This can improve the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and dullness. There are three primary types of chemical peels: superficial peels, medium peels, and deep peels. Superficial peels only penetrate the top layer of skin and have a little downtime, while deep peels penetrate deeper layers of skin and may require more recovery time. You should always consult with a skincare professional before getting a chemical peel to determine which type is best for your specific concerns and skin type. It is also essential to follow all post-treatment instructions to ensure proper healing and desired results.
- Microdermabrasion. Another way of treating sunspots and other imperfections on the skin is with microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses a device to physically exfoliate the top layer of skin. This can improve the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, and uneven skin tone. Like chemical peels, it is key to consult with a skincare professional before getting microdermabrasion and following all post-treatment instructions for optimal results.
- Laser treatments. Laser light treatments use targeted beams of light to treat specific concerns on the skin, such as sunspots, scarring, and wrinkles. These treatments can be more expensive and may require multiple sessions for desired results.
- Cryotherapy with CryoClear® device. Freezing of sunspots and other growths, such as skin tags, can be achieved with CryoClear®, a specialized device used to treat imperfections on the skin using extremely cold energy penetrating directly into the area of concern.
