Sunspot Treatment Sunspots

Sunspots, also known as solar lentigines or age spots, are pigmented spots that develop on the skin due to prolonged exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays. These spots can often make you look older than you feel, and they can be difficult to conceal with makeup alone. However, with our advanced sunspot treatment options, you can achieve a clearer, more even complexion and regain your confidence in your skin’s appearance.

Understanding Sunspots

Sunspots typically appear as flat, brown spots on areas of the skin that are frequently exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands and arms. While sunspots are harmless and do not pose any health risks, they can be aesthetically displeasing and may cause you to feel self-conscious about your skin.

The development of sunspots is primarily attributed to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which accelerates the production of melanin in the skin. Melanin is responsible for giving skin its colour, and an overproduction of melanin leads to the formation of dark spots on the skin’s surface. Factors such as genetics, skin type, and sun exposure history can also influence the development of sunspots.

Sunspot Treatments


Here are some of the sunspot treatment options we provide:

  • Laser Therapy: Laser therapy is a highly effective treatment for targeting and reducing the appearance of sunspots. Our state-of-the-art laser technology delivers precise wavelengths of light to target the melanin in the sunspots, causing them to gradually fade away. Laser therapy is safe, minimally invasive, and requires little to no downtime, making it an ideal option for busy individuals seeking quick and effective results.
  • Chemical Peels: Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the outermost layer and promotes the regeneration of new, healthier skin cells. Certain types of chemical peels, such as those containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or trichloroacetic acid (TCA), can effectively lighten and diminish the appearance of sunspots over time. Our skilled practitioners will recommend the most suitable type of chemical peel based on your skin type and concerns.
  • Topical Treatments: In addition to in-office procedures, we also offer prescription-strength topical treatments that can help fade sunspots and improve overall skin tone and texture. These topical treatments may contain ingredients such as hydroquinone, retinoids, or vitamin C, which work to inhibit melanin production and promote skin cell turnover. Our skincare experts will recommend the most appropriate topical treatment based on your skin type and concerns, ensuring safe and effective results.
  • Combination Therapies: In some cases, a combination of different treatment modalities may be recommended to achieve the best possible results. Our team may suggest combining laser therapy with chemical peels or topical treatments to address multiple aspects of sunspot removal and skin rejuvenation simultaneously.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are sunspots harmful?

    Sunspots are typically harmless and do not pose any health risks. However, they can be aesthetically displeasing and may cause you to feel self-conscious about your skin’s appearance.

  • Can sunspots be prevented?

    While it’s difficult to completely prevent sunspots, you can minimise their development by practising sun safety measures, such as wearing sunscreen with a high SPF, seeking shade during peak sun hours, and wearing protective clothing, such as hats and sunglasses.

  • Is sunspot treatment painful?

    Most sunspot treatment options are well-tolerated and involve minimal discomfort. Laser therapy and chemical peels may cause a mild stinging or warming sensation during treatment, but this typically subsides quickly. Topical treatments are generally gentle on the skin and may cause mild irritation in some individuals.

  • How many treatment sessions are needed to see results?

    The number of treatment sessions needed to see results depends on various factors, including the severity of the sunspots, your skin type, and the treatment modality used. In general, multiple treatment sessions may be recommended to achieve optimal results, and our team will customise a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
