Sunspots develop on areas of the skin that have been exposed to the sun. They’re small, dark and flat, and often appear on the face, hands, arms and shoulders. Some people call sunspots liver spots, and they’re also known by the medical term solar lentigines. The good news is that there are ways to treat them, should they develop on your skin. Find out how our Norwich experts can help target sunspots, and how you can prevent them from developing.
How to get rid of sunspots
We offer a range of treatments here in Norwich to refine the appearance of skin and target concerns like sunspots. These include:
- Chemical peels: skin-exfoliating treatments that gently remove the outermost layers and reveal the youthful skin below. Helps your complexion appear firmer and smoother, and can also target other concerns such as blemishes and pigmentation, as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
- Microneedling: a treatment that involves ‘stamping’ fine needles in targeted areas. It can help combat sunspots, age spots, large pores, wrinkles and other concerns with our effective microneedling procedure.
- CO2 laser: our Secret PRO treatment helps to address skin that’s been damaged by the sun as well as scarring and stretch marks. Targets sunspots, lines and wrinkles, acne marks and more.
How to prevent sunspots
Because UV light is one of the main causes of sunspots, it helps to protect your skin while out. Cover up with long, loose clothing; seek shade when the sun is at its hottest; wear good-quality sun care with SPF and UV protection, and avoid sun beds and other tanning treatments that use UV light.
