What is the cure for black spots on face due to sunlight? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
I have black spots on my face which are caused due to sunlight
i wanted them to remove
Did you try any method?
Once i went she put some acid but it went some mark is remaining
Do you mean chemical peeling from a dermatologist?
No that was not peeling
what you suggest
Who did that ____acid therapy?
Let me brief you.
Dark spots on the skin fade away with time.
Give it 3-6 months, it is resolve.
However during this 3-6 months, we need to avoid sun exposure.
Therefore my first choice of treatment for all patients who look for dark spots treatment is
no they are there from many years but they are becoming darker
combination of sunscreen as well as moisturizer.
If you have not been using sunscreen, they are going to persist
how we take eyeliner and put bindi on our face they are like that
since the effects of sun continue to last on the spot.
no i am not using
i am alergic to creams
I understand your description, but the most effective means to treat dark spots is by using combination of sunscreen and moisturizer. This treats both the current spots and prevents new spot.
but i had stooped seeing sunlight from many days that i mean i wont go out from mng8 to evening5
If you wish to try this, then I suggest you to use combination of suncross SPF 26 suncreen
or any other sunscreen with SPF more than 26
along with a good moisturizer.
you can test the products on a small area to look for allergies.
both one Doctor from health care magic suggested that to go for peelling
There are various means to treat dark spots and peeling is one means.
MAy i go peeling
You may need one or more sessions
depending on how many dark spots you have.
Again, peeling is an one time solution.
it has no role in preventing new dark spots from happening.
You may need to use sun screen and moisturizer after the current dark spot is treated - as a means to prevent new spots from happening.
What ever previous i have got only that many are ther as i am avoiding sunlight
Alternate to peeling is skin lightening creams such as mederma.
If you don't have fresh spots from happening, then you may try skin lightening creams or chemical peels.
Can you suggest me good dermatolist
If you do not like chemical peels, you can also try dermabrasion
This also is effective in treating dark spots.
May I know your location?
dermabrasion what is it
It is a procedure. You can call it as skin care procedure where the skin is rubbed with a special paper or pumice stone as a means to shed outer layer
The procedure also induces fresh skin formation.
so what will happen
Your dermatologist will know about it.
