Sun spots is a generic term that people use to describe brown or red spots on the face and body. At Lantry Laser Center we use several methods to treat these spots.
Sometimes a laser, such as Fraxel is appropriate. Laser Genesis and Limelight are also lasers that offer very effective treatment for red and brown spots. Often Dr. Lantry will prescribe a bleaching cream, 4% hydroquinone, as treatment. And sometimes “sun spots” require a closer look through biopsy.
If you have “sun spots” you should schedule a free consultation with Dr. Lantry and she will discuss the best treatment options for you.
