Say “So Long!” to Sunspots

Sun over Water

Whether or not you consider yourself a sun worshipper, you might notice the appearance of a sunspot or two somewhere on your skin. These spots, also known as age or liver spots, result from overexposure to UV rays delivered by natural sunlight or tanning beds. Although usually brown, sunspots can present as black, gray or even white areas on your face, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, and hands.

Although these common blemishes are usually benign, most women are eager to remove them however possible. While some at-home remedies and skincare treatments do exist for sunspots and can help fade the spots, it takes professional treatments, such as those offered here at Abington Aesthetic & Laser Medical Center to really reduce the appearance of these marks.

Check out the following laser treatments available in our office to help you say “so long” to sunspots as summer comes to an end.
