Sunspots And Sun Damage Laser Treatment

Too much sun exposure can cause untold damage to your skin, leaving tell-tale marks in the form of sun spots (also known as ‘Solar lentingines’), thread veins, lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. It can also dry out your skin, change its underlying structure and, at its worst, even lead to various forms of skin cancers.

If you have highly visible sun spots on your face, you may feel that they are ageing your skin and making your complexion look dull and uneven. Here at the Carnaby Laser Clinic and Academy in London, we offer effective treatment for sunspots using the Xlase Plus laser’s Calibrated Pulsed Light (CPL) or Diode ND:yag applicators.

  • Effective, noticeable results
  • Long-lasting skin rejuvenation
  • A detailed consultation specific to your needs
  • Minimal side effects & no downtime
  • Proven safety record

Sunspots laser treatment FAQs

Sun spots are caused by direct, prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays or from artificial sources of UV rays, such as sun beds. The UV exposure causes the melanocytes – i.e. the pigment cells that make melanin to give your skin its colour – to produce excess pigment in just one spot instead of across the whole skin’s surface, creating darker brown patches. In the case of sun spots, it isn’t that the number of melanocyte cells increases, just the amount of pigment they produce.
To treat sun spots, we use one or combined advanced laser / light applicator for the Xlase Plus. This works by directing pulses of light energy to targeted areas of the skin; this energy is absorbed by the concentrated patches of melanin in your sun spots and converts to heat energy, which damages and breaks down the affected pigment cells without damaging the surrounding healthy cells.

Over a course of treatment, we will be able to dramatically improve the appearance of your sun spots leaving your complexion looking younger, fresher and clearer.

The number of sessions you need will depend on your individual case. When you come in for your initial consultation, we’ll be able to give you a much better idea of what to expect.
Laser treatments for sun spots are widely viewed to be safe and effective, especially when performed by a suitably experienced laser aesthetics practitioner. Some people find that their skin feels hot for approximately 15 minutes or so after treatment, and your skin may look red and flushed for about an hour.
There’s no downtime after a laser treatment. We recommend that you wear a high factor sunscreen (SPF 30+) to help protect your skin. If you notice any signs of skin discolouration or pigmentation changes, do contact us straightaway.
