PRESCRIPTION SKINCARE…….my preferred solution for sunspots
There are a variety of treatment options available, including dermabrasion, freezing and laser therapy, though these treatments may need repeating, and can cause discolouration. My preferred approach is to treat with a skincare range which contains prescription strength active ingredients, and which gradually fades the spots over a period of several months. By starting on a low dose, and then gradually increasing the dose as the skin adapts, unwanted effects can be kept to a minimum. All skin types are suitable for this treatment. As with all prescribed medication, a detailed assessment would be needed before starting treatment.
Finally, prevention is always better than cure, which is why I recommend the use of a broad spectrum suncream on a daily basis.
