For many of us, being outside is one of the most enjoyable parts of life. However, as we age, all of that time spent basking in the sun can catch up with us, manifesting in the form of sunspots. Also called solar lentigines, sunspots are flat brown spots on the skin that are caused by sun exposure. Although individuals with fair skin may notice these spots in their 20s, most adults begin noticing the appearance of sunspots by the time they enter their 30s and 40s. Although these spots are generally harmless, many people consider them an unwanted aspect of aging that they would like to remove. If sunspots are plaguing you, here is what you can do to help.
Consider Laser Treatments
At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey, we believe that laser treatments are the safest and most effective method to remove unwanted sunspots. Our team is proud to use Intense Pulsed Light, Broad Band Light, Q-Switched Lasers, and the newest Picosecond Lasers to address the cosmetic needs of our patients.
Why Choose the Picosecond Laser?
Although all of the lasers we use offer results that are high quality and effective, we believe that the Picosecond Laser is the fastest and most effective option on the market. This particular laser can be used to treat sunspots as well as unwanted permanent makeup and tattoos.
During the procedure, the Picosecond Laser reaches into the treatment area to penetrate the pigment that has caused the sunspot, breaking it down so that the unwanted pigmentation can naturally be absorbed by the body.
Due to the fact that the procedure feels similar to the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin, some patients choose to receive a topical anesthesia during the appointment. However, recovery time is fast, and patients are able to quickly resume normal activity.
