Sun Spot Treatment: Restore Your Skin's Radiance

At Balanced Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Newport Beach, our board-certified dermatologists specialize in the effective treatment of sun spots, helping you achieve a more even, youthful complexion. If you're concerned about the appearance of age spots, liver spots, or solar lentigines, our skilled team offers advanced solutions to help you regain your skin's natural beauty and boost your confidence.

Understanding Sun Spots

Sun spots, also known as age spots, liver spots, or solar lentigines, are flat, brown, or grayish patches of skin that typically appear on sun-exposed areas such as the face, hands, chest, and shoulders. These spots are caused by an excess production of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color, in response to prolonged sun exposure over time.

While sun spots are usually harmless, they can be a cosmetic concern and make you look older than you feel. They can also be a sign of sun damage, which can increase your risk of developing skin cancer. If you notice any new, changing, or suspicious spots on your skin, it's essential to have them evaluated by a board-certified dermatologist.

Sun Spot Treatment Options

At Balanced Skin Dermatology and Aesthetics, we offer a range of advanced treatment options for sun spots, tailored to your individual skin type, concerns, and goals. These treatments include:

Topical Medications

We may prescribe topical creams, serums, or lotions containing ingredients like hydroquinone, retinoids, or vitamin C to help fade sun spots and even out skin tone. These products work by inhibiting melanin production and promoting cell turnover, gradually improving the appearance of sun-damaged skin.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve applying a customized solution to the skin to exfoliate and remove damaged, pigmented cells. Our skilled aestheticians offer a range of peel strengths and formulations to address sun spots, from gentle superficial peels to more intensive medium-depth peels, depending on your needs and desired results.


Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating collagen production and cell renewal. When combined with topical treatments or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling can effectively improve the appearance of sun spots and promote a more even, radiant complexion.

Laser Treatments

Our state-of-the-art laser treatments, such as the PicoSure Pro laser, target sun spots at the source, breaking down excess pigment and promoting the growth of new, evenly-toned skin cells. These non-invasive treatments offer minimal downtime and can provide significant improvement in the appearance of sun-damaged skin.

Our experienced dermatologists will assess your skin and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan based on your individual needs, skin type, and desired results.

Preventing Sun Spots

In addition to professional treatments, preventing sun spots is crucial for maintaining your skin's health and appearance. We recommend the following tips to help protect your skin from sun damage:

  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 daily, even on cloudy days
  • Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours, or more frequently if swimming or sweating
  • Wear protective clothing, such as long-sleeved shirts, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses
  • Seek shade during peak sun hours, typically between 10 am and 4 pm
  • Avoid tanning beds and excessive sun exposure
  • Perform regular skin self-exams and schedule annual skin cancer screenings with a dermatologist

By adopting these sun-safe habits and addressing sun spots with professional treatments, you can help keep your skin looking healthy, youthful, and radiant for years to come.
