What is a sunspot?

Sunspots are small, flat, brownish spots on the skin that are often more pronounced on people with fair skin. They are the result of increased melanin production in the skin in response to sun exposure and /or a genetic predispostion . While sunspots are harmless, some people may feel self-conscious about their appearance or desire to have them removed for cosmetic reasons. 

Why Choose Laser Treatment for Sunspots?

Sunspots, often more pronounced in individuals with fair skin, result from increased melanin production due to sun exposure or genetic predisposition. While harmless, many seek their removal for cosmetic reasons. At The Doctors Laser Clinic, we advocate for laser skin resurfacing as the safest and most effective method for sunspot removal. Our Harmony XL Pro laser, one of the best in its class, offers a non-invasive solution, targeting only the affected areas and promoting new skin growth for an improved appearance.

Types of sunspots

Solar lentigos are also classed as sunspots,  are larger and darker patches that tend to appear on the face, hands, and other areas of the body that are frequently exposed to the sun. They tend to increase in number and size with age and are caused by long-term sun exposure.

Why people have sunspots removed

While some people find sunspots to be charming, you may feel self-conscious about their appearance or desire a more even skin tone.

There are several methods for removing sunspots, but the most effective approach depends on the type and location of the sunspots, as well as your skin type and sensitivity.

At The Doctors Laser Clinic, we believe the safest and number one method for sunspot removal is with our laser skin resurfacing treatment.

The Laser Sunspot Removal Process

Initial Consultation and Skin Assessment

Your journey to clearer skin begins with a consultation at our clinic. Our specialists assess your skin type and the characteristics of your sunspots to tailor a treatment plan that suits your specific needs.

The Procedure: What to Expect

During the procedure, controlled heat energy from the Harmony XL Pro laser is applied to the targeted areas. This process is precise, ensuring the effective removal of sunspots with minimal discomfort. The entire session typically lasts less than an hour.

Post-Treatment Care and Follow-up

Following the treatment, we provide comprehensive aftercare instructions. It’s important to protect the treated area from direct sun exposure and use sunscreen regularly. We also schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure the best results.

Preparing for Your Laser Sunspot Removal

How to Prepare for the Procedure

To prepare for your laser sunspot removal, we recommend avoiding sun exposure and tanning treatments for several weeks prior. This preparation ensures your skin is in its natural state, enhancing the effectiveness of the laser treatment.

What to Do and What to Avoid Before Treatment

Before your appointment, keeping the treatment area clean and free from makeup or lotions is essential. Avoid any skincare products that may irritate the skin. We also advise against certain medications and supplements that can increase sensitivity or bleeding risk, which will be detailed during your consultation. This will be fully explained during your consultation.
