MEDICAL COSMETICS & SUN SPOT REMOVAL - OHIO
What Are the Best Sunspot Removal Treatments in Lancaster, Ohio?
There are many types of treatments available to help treat sunspots. Depending on your personal preference and needs, choose the one that best suits you. Sunspots are small, brownish-red bumps caused by too much exposure to sunlight. They are usually found on exposed skin parts such as the hands, feet, forearms, face, scalp and back. It is estimated that approximately 5% of the population has these annoying bumps. Many times, though, they are mistaken for pimples and are not taken seriously enough. The Best Sunspot Removal Treatments in Lancaster, Ohio, include:
1. IPL – Intense pulsed light therapy (IPL) is one of the best ways to remove sunspots from the face, lips, and body. It works by emitting a high-powered light pulse into the skin, which heats up the affected area. When this happens, the heat stimulates cells at the dermis level to produce collagen and elastin. As a result, you get smoother, brighter, and younger-looking skin. Although some risks are associated with IPL, like inflammation and blistering, they all go away after a few weeks. There is also no downtime required when using IPL treatment.
2. Chemical Peel – A chemical peel is a topical application of chemicals that act as mild exfoliators. It removes dead layers of skin that cause the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, it rejuvenates damaged skin leaving behind fresh new skin. Unlike laser treatment, there is no downtime involved with a chemical peel. Most people notice results within a week after their first treatment. However, the effects of everyone vary depending on the person’s specific skin condition.

3. Micro Needling – Also known as micro pigmentation, micro-needling is a safe method of tattooing without needles. During this procedure, tiny micro-needles penetrate deep inside the epidermis layer to stimulate the regeneration and growth of new blood vessels. This leads to a visible increase in cellular turnover, resulting in smoother and softer skin. Once again, there is no downtime required for this treatment.

4. Microdermabrasion and Dermabrasion - A micro dermabrader is designed to scrape off a thin layer of top layers of skin, causing stimulation of cell renewal and growth in the treated areas. This method is effective for those suffering from acne scarring because it helps minimize scars. After a microdermabrasion session, the skin goes through a recovery period of three to five days, turning red and slightly swollen. Afterwards, the skin is left with smooth and supple skin.
