While sun spots are usually harmless and can showcase the many years you’ve spent basking in the sun, sun spot removal should be your next treatment if you’re looking for that all-over even skin tone. At Impressions Face + Body, we have the tools and techniques to give you that glowy, vibrant complexion you’ve dreamed of.

What Are Sun Spots?

Also known as age spots due to their accumulation throughout your life, sun spots are small and dark areas on the skin. They usually collect in areas most exposed to the sun’s rays, like the shoulders, face, and hands. We offer a range of specialized treatments that target the spots in various rays.

What Causes Sun Spots?

Sun spots arise from the skin's protective response to prolonged ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. To shield itself, the skin ramps up melanin production—the pigment that gives skin its color—resulting in these concentrated, darker areas. Over the years, repeated sun exposure without adequate protection can result in a sprinkling of these spots, marking the memory of sunny days spent without sunscreen or protective clothing.

Sun Spot Removal Treatments

Our range of treatments varies in intensity of approach and whether you want to target other aspects of your skin or just your sun spots.

+

Chemical peels

Chemical peels involve applying a chemical solution that causes the outer layers of skin to peel off, revealing new, less damaged skin underneath, diminishing the appearance of sun spots.
+

Microdermabrasion

This is a mechanical exfoliation method where fine crystals or a diamond-tipped device is used to buff away the surface layer of the skin.
+

Laser treatments

Laser therapy is often very effective for sun spots as it can target and break down melanin in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue.
