How to Remove Sun Damage
Laser treatments can effectively reduce sun damage including sun spots and uneven skin tone. T will reduce your freckles, sun spots, and irregular pigmentation. We find that patients with sun damage on their arms, chest, neck, or legs respond well to these treatments, reGentlePro is an extremely versatile laser that can remove sun spots as well as unwanted hair. It utilizes a DCD (Dynamic Cooling Device) for extra comfort.
Chemical peels exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and giving your skin a healthy glow. You can use a chemical peel to reduce the appearance of sun damage, including sun spots, fine lines, and uneven skin tone. A series of chemical peels is recommended for best results, and the type of peel will be based on your skin’s texture, colour, and sensitivity. Chemical peels can be applied to the face, chest, back, or other areas of concern.
In addition, to prevent future sun damage, a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 is recommended, reapply your sunscreen every two hours, cover up your skin with a hat and clothing when outdoors, and avoid the sun when it is at its most intense (typically between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.).
