There are many excellent treatments to manage sunspots and return your skin to a more rejuvenated state.
Many Australians, especially those with pale skin have dry scaly lesions called sunspots (actinic keratosis) on sun-exposed skin. These are unsightly, sometimes itchy and are pre-cancerous lesions. Without treatment a proportion of these will develop into skin cancer (SCC or squamous cell carcinoma). SCC’s can be potentially life threatening skin cancers and usually require surgery to manage.
Topical prescription creams can be used. There are many current technologies such as Photodynamic Therapy and Laser Resurfacing which manage all the elements of photo damage, including brown spots, dilated vessels and have a superior cosmetic outcome to creams alone. Dr Wines will discuss the correct modality of treatment for you.
