How to treat unsightly sun spots this summer

2nd July 2014

Sun spots (also known as age spots) are normally dark in appearance and are often caused by direct or prolonged exposure to sunlight, which carry Ultra Violet (UV) rays. They are quite unsightly and can affect people from all age groups particularly the elderly.

Below are a few solutions on how you can get rid of these unsightly marks on your skin.

Solution 1 - use good quality sunscreen

One of the most obvious ways to protect your skin from sun spots is by ensuring you are fully stocked with good quality sunscreens for the summer season. Many skin experts advise applying sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 + all year round, to keep your skin protected on a daily basis.

Solution 2 - try out chemical skin peels

Skin peels are an effective way to stay clear of sunspots. A glycolic acid peel is a safe, highly effective way to rejuvenate the skin and reduce the damage caused by ageing and over exposure to the sun.

Book a free consultation with an experienced dermatologist at sk:n to find out more about this procedure, along with many other specialist rejuvenation treatments.

Solution 3 - try the popular laser treatment Fraxel®

Fraxel® treatment is a safe laser skin treatment that can resurface damaged skin and uncover the more youthful skin underneath. This type of procedure uses patented fractional technology to target ageing and sun damaged skin and would normally require a minimum of three treatments.
