Prolonged sun exposure can cause dark spots to appear on your body and face. People with lighter skin are more likely to develop these unsightly marks. You can avoid them by wearing sunscreen, appropriate clothing and avoiding the sun during peak hours. Even with your best efforts, you may still find sun spots appearing on your skin. If sun spots have already developed, there is an excellent way to treat sun spots without major surgery. Help restore damaged skin through laser skin resurfacing.
How Laser Skin Resurfacing Treats Sun Spots
Laser skin resurfacing is a popular treatment option to help treat sun spots. This nonsurgical cosmetic procedure can also be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, scars and other skin blemishes. Before the procedure, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the area being treated. A high-energy pulsing laser removes the top layers of damaged skin to promote collagen production and new skin growth.
You can resume your normal activities right away after treatment. While you can see noticeable results right away, these results will continue to improve over the next six months. Certain activities will need to be avoided while your skin heals. You will receive special instructions after the procedure to ensure you get the best possible results. Depending on the severity of your skin condition, multiple treatment sessions may be needed.
