Whenever you find yourself regretting all that time you spent soaking in the sun over the years because it has resulted in the development of sun spots on your skin, you may also find yourself wondering if there is a way to eliminate them. If you are concerned with invasive treatments, there is good news. Sun spots can be effectively eliminated with non-invasive therapy. You will be able to get back to your normal routine immediately or quickly, and you will not need to visit a hospital to receive the treatment. It might be beneficial for you to learn a little about what caused these spots to form. That way, you can better understand how you can benefit from non-invasive therapy.
Sun spots form when melanin begins to concentrate in small patches that are scattered throughout the skin. When you spend time in the sun, the skin has a way or protecting itself against the harmful rays. It will produce more melanin. This is the substance that gives pigment. Therefore, when its levels increase in response to sun exposure, your skin will become darker in the form of a tan.
Getting a dark tan is desirable for many people, especially in the younger years. You could pay the price for it as you age, however. When you are exposed to the sun over and over, your skin will start to develop places in which the melanin level is much higher than it is in the surrounding skin. It will not spread out evenly for some reason. The result is visible dark spots.
These visible sun spots can be effectively eliminated with a number of non-invasive therapies that will help to break up and disperse the concentrated melanin. You will be left with skin that is of a smoother tone with less of these unwanted spots.
