At-Home Treatments

There are a variety of DIY masks or even over-the-counter creams that can help to fade the appearance of your sun spots. It is best to look for compounds that promote healing as well as collagen production, as these will help to repair any current damage while also creating new cells to provide a fuller, more youthful look to your skin.

While many of these options can provide an enhanced appearance to your skin, if you are looking for significant results you should primarily consider clinical treatment options from a dermatologist.

Professional Treatments

Uderm offers a wide variety of skin treatment options for sun spots and many other dermatological conditions, all of which are completed by a licensed professional with years of experience.

Chemical Peels

It sounds a bit intense, but a chemical peel involves applying a controlled amount of acid to the skin in order to strip away dead top layers and reveal new, glowing skin beneath. This treatment helps to expedite your skin’s natural regeneration process in order to remove damage from the sun and other natural causes.

Although patients should expect to feel a mild amount of discomfort during the chemical peel process, this treatment is entirely safe and should only lead to a mild burning sensation that lasts for a few minutes.

Laser Resurfacing

Where the sun used light to harm the skin, laser resurfacing uses light to remove damaged layers one by one. During this treatment, your provider will apply the light of the laser to the face for approximately 30-60 minutes depending upon the number of sunspots you have.

Once this process is complete, patients can expect to see desired results in 2-3 weeks after their laser resurfacing treatment.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

Similar to laser resurfacing, IPL treatments also utilize a specific type of light energy to address sunspots of the face. By delivering pulses of light to the target areas, this technology is able to destroy the melanin, which is what gives the sunspot its darkened coloring.

These sessions generally last for 30 minutes or less, though multiple treatments may be needed depending upon the patient’s unique case.


Both laser resurfacing and intense pulse light treatments rely on applying heat to the skin in order to stimulate new cell growth and strip away dead skin cells. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there is cryotherapy, which freezes off an individual’s sunspots. This effect is achieved by administering a liquid nitrogen or nitrous oxide solution to the face.

Don’t worry, it isn’t as dramatic as it sounds. Most patients report experiencing only mild discomfort during these types of treatments, which resolve quickly after the procedure is completed.
