Sunspots, age spots, freckles and actinic or seborrheic keratoses are usually triggered by a prolonged exposure to UV rays (sun rays) and have a dark appearance. They can vary in size and color, but are usually harmless. You are more prone to developing sun spots if you have a lighter skin, but usually, they are harmless and mostly removed for cosmetic reasons.
If you live in Worcester and you suffer from one of the skin lesions listed above and you notice a change in size, color and shape, you must immediately contact the closest specialist. Renew Skin and Health Clinic can provide you with a professional consultation prior to undergoing any medical procedure for the sun spot removal or age spot removal treatment.
If you suffer from a mild form of sunspots or other skin-related conditions, our doctors can suggest you use a retinoid cream medication which will reduce the visibility of your symptoms. However, if the dermatologist believes that your condition is more serious, or if you believe that your sun spots or age spots are extremely unaesthetic (generally the actinic keratoses and seborrheic keratoses), he/she can recommend you an IPL (intense pulsed light) laser treatment. These age spot removal procedures might need to be repeated a few times, so that they can efficiently get you rid of your sun spots, age spots or freckles.
People living in Worcester, should contact the Head Office of Renew Skin and Health Clinic to benefit from a professional consultation which might even save their life, in case the sunspots or age spots are actually concealing a more serious condition, such as malignant melanoma (skin cancer). If your doctor believes you might suffer from a life-threatening condition, he/she will recommend a biopsy to harvest a tissue sample and analyze it properly in order to set an accurate diagnosis. In case of malignant melanoma, your doctor will recommend you the complete excision of your sun spot or age spot, which is performed by undergoing a safe, fast and minimally scarring minor operation procedure. This minimally invasive procedure will prevent the recurrence of your condition and will provide you with the safe and efficient removal of your spots.
Another highly effective, safe and non-surgical procedure for sun spots removal, actinic keratosis removal or seborrheic keratosis removal in Worcester is radiosurgery which also ensures excellent cosmetic results.
There are also other procedures available for the people living in Worcester who wish to get rid of the unaesthetic freckles and sunspots. Microdermabrasion or chemical peels have proven effective in cosmetically treating age spots or sunspots by removing the affected upper layers. Thus, there are several options available in treating sunspots, freckles or age spots and they are all performed by our professional plastic surgeons or dermatologists at Renew Skin and Health Clinic.
