Sun spots are one of the most common skin issues that occur as a result of UV ray exposure. The sun’s UV rays cause the production of melanin in the skin, which gives the skin a darker color. The melanin may form in sun spots, oddly shaped clusters in areas like your face, neck, shoulders, and other areas that are frequently exposed to sunlight.

At Central Ohio Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide array of aesthetic skin care services that can reduce the appearance of sun spots and restore the even complexion of your skin. Sun spots on the face can be treated using chemical peels or CO2 laser resurfacing. We also offer medical-grade skin care products that can nourish and restore your skin.

The best way to avoid developing sun spots is to always use sun screen and to limit your time spent in direct sunlight. If you need help treating your sun spots, contact Central Ohio Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten for your sun spot treatment.
