Beautiful weather and sunshine keep reminding us to be extra careful when we expose our skin to the sun. In this blog post we’ll continue with our story about sun damage. Freckles and brown sunspots on face are types of hyperpigmentation that may appear on photo-damaged skin. Excessive exposure to UVA and UVB lights in your early 20s will lead to sunspots in the long run.
Melanin (the pigment of the skin) is a natural sunscreen, the production of which is increased during the sun exposure in order to protect the skin from further damage. Cumulative exposure to the sun slowly decreases this process and, with time, the skin loses the ability to repair itself.
What are sunspots?
Freckles and sunspots are not the same, although there are some similarities. Most of sunspots will show on our skin as we get older. They often appear on the face, hands or chests. Prolonged exposure to UV light, including tanning beds, as well as sunburn, will lead to premature ageing and increased number of sunspots. They are usually harmless and can occur at any age. Unlike freckles, sunspots are larger and more defined. They tend to persist for long periods and do not disappear during the winter.
Shade, shade and appropriate sunscreen
We would like to encourage those who are naturally gifted with freckles to embrace their natural skin. Many are proud of their spotty face and they should be. But keep in mind to pay more attention to freckled face.
Wise sun-care is always advised.
Sun rays are the strongest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you need to be outside during that period of the day, make sure you apply sunscreen and wear hat and sunglasses. Also, your body should be covered up with clothing.
How to easily eliminate brown sunspots on the face?
Brown sunspots on face or any other area are very common and can be treated easily. Professional treatments are proved to be the most convenient solution. Results can be visible within a couple of weeks, with very little to no downtime at all.
Depending on your skin condition, FC Skin Solution Clinic proposes:
- Skin care based on hydroquinone, and/or
- Resurfacing procedures such as chemical peels and laser therapy.
While laser procedure destroys the cells that generate extra pigment, chemical peels work to remove damaged layers of skin. Our professional will diagnose and suggest the treatment that will meet your needs.
We strongly believe that unique is beautiful. And well-tended skin highlights the beauty.
