Who gets Sun Damage and Brown Spots?

It doesn't matter who you are, how old you are, or what your lifestyle looks like - you can have sun damage. Brown spots as a result of sun damage tend to pop up more in later years, typically above 40, and will be more obvious on lighter skin tones.

What are the causes of Sun Damage and Brown Spots?

Being exposed to the sun and UV rays is what causes sun damage, especially when sunscreen hasn't been used regularly. This can be natural sunlight or that from a tanning bed - they both emit damaging light that can cause your skin to age more quickly and brown spots to appear.

What are common treatments for Sun Damage and Brown Spots?

Good news - sun damage and the brown spots that come with it are absolutely treatable. You don't need to suffer feeling unconscious about yourself or your skin anymore. Treatments can sometimes include topical creams or medications like hydroquinone and retinoids.

There are also a number of procedures that can drastically improve the look of brown spots. Light therapy breaks up the pigments in age spots, fading them. Cryosurgery freezes spots off using liquid nitrogen. Chemical peels are also an option, which help remove the top layer of skin, allowing fresh, new skin to peek out.

How long does it take to treat the Sun Damage and Brown Spots?

Age spots can often be treated very quickly. Especially with more intensive treatments like cryosurgery and light therapy, you may be able to see a difference right away.
