Sun Spot Treatment

COSMETIC DERMATOLOGY AND SKIN CARE for NEWPORT BEACH, CORONA DEL MAR & ORANGE COUNTY, CA


One of the most aggravating skin conditions, sun spots are a type of hyperpigmentation, which is caused by your skin overproducing melanin, often in response to sun damage. What we call "sun spots" can also be the result of hormonal changes, but sun damage is a major contributor to their development. Orange County skin specialist Dr. Monica Bonakdar knows how frustrating the appearance of sun spots is to her patients, and she can find the right treatment to reduce or eliminate unsightly sun damage. Please call us at (949) 721-6000 to schedule a consultation.

Non-surgical, Minimally Invasive Sun Spot Treatments

Non-surgical, Minimally Invasive Sun Spot Treatments

Sun spots often appear in the most visible areas, which are easily exposed to the sun. As early as your late 20s, you may have begun to notice these flat, brown patches on your nose, forehead, hands or chest. Fortunately, with the right treatment, Dr. Bonakdar can reverse the signs of sun damage. Treating sun spots may be carried out in one of the following ways:

Laser Resurfacing: Using laser energy, Dr. Bonakdar can reduce the appearance of sun spots effectively. At Bonakdar Institute, Dr. Bonakdar uses Fraxel resurfacing and Ultrapulse FX resurfacing. Dr. Bonakdar will recommend a type of laser resurfacing based on the severity of your sun spots and how old they are.

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy: Also called a photo facial, IPL therapy uses light to reduce the appearance of sun spots and other pigmentation irregularities. Most patients see an improvement after just one treatment.

Chemical Peels: Various chemical peels can soften and refresh your skin, and may provide some improvement in the appearance of mild sun damage. Dr. Bonakdar offers several chemical peels at Bonakdar Institute, so a consultation and skin analysis is needed to suggest the right one for you. These treatments are applied to your face to strip away surface imperfections.

Microdermabrasion: These treatments use a fine spray of tiny particles to exfoliate the surface of your skin. The device gently vacuums away the debris and stimulates the blood flow to your skin. Microdermabrasion typically requires more than one treatment to see optimal results.
