The Sun and Your Skin

Statistically speaking, most people undergo a sizable amount of their life’s photodamage during their adolescents, teens, and early twenties. Rodgers Center for Plastic Surgery would like for you to know that even if you’ve experienced sun damage, we can help.

What Causes Sun Spots?

Sun spots (also called solar lentigines) can come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes. They mostly occur on the hands, face, or any other area that gets a lot of sun exposure. Did you used to tan a lot back in the day? Do you enjoy your time in the sun at the beach? Tanning beds, booths, and sun exposure are the leading cause of sun spots, and further exposure will cause them to darken over time.

Don’t Like Surgery?

Do you have sun spots, age spots, brown marks, or hyperpigmentation that causes you to be self conscious in your everyday life? What if we told you that we can treat a wide array of adverse skin conditions without having to deal with knives or painful surgeries? For our patients who seek non-surgical alternatives to skincare and aesthetic enhancement, we are proud to provide laser sun spots treatment. Our Cutera laser skincare platform is versatile, industry-leading technology that can erase or diminish sun damage and other signs of aging, shaving years off of your complexion.

How Does Laser Sun Spots Removal Work?

Cutera technology heats the upper dermis below the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen growth in the process. Many patients have a pain-free experience, but some of our patients might experience side effects. Slight reddening might occur, or swelling in the treatment area, similar to a medium-sized sunburn. But, don’t worry, these side effects usually only last for a few hours, sometimes even less. In very rare instances, blistering might occur. We’ll consult with you during your initial visit to discuss further all of the details. Cutera is FDA-approved to provide a wide variety of photodamage treatments.
