Skin blemishes have become an important problem for many men and women today. There are many types of skin blemishes, but sun spots, postpartum blemishes, acne blemishes are the types of blemishes we frequently encounter. Especially with the gradual damage to the ozone layer, the risk of exposure to the harmful effects of UV rays has increased. The sun and therefore ultraviolet rays are one of the most important factors in the formation or darkening of spots. One of the very important points that we insistently emphasize to our patients in all kinds of spot treatment is that effective protection from sun rays is the sine qua non of spot treatment.
Sun Spot (Melasma)
Sun spots (melasma) are brown formations on the face. They usually appear after the 20s. They are more common in women than in men. They are often bilateral and symmetrical on the face. Sun spots are divided into superficial, deep and mixed types. Superficial sunspots respond better to treatment. Deeply located ones hardly respond to treatment. Mixed melasma, which is a combination of superficial and deep spots, is the most common type of melasma. Sunbathing, pregnancy, hormone treatments and birth control pills trigger sunspots.
Sun spots are a very common problem. It occurs more frequently in people with dark skin. The mechanism of the formation of the spot is that the cells that make color in these areas produce more color than those in the spotless area. As a result, the sun-blotched areas immediately darken. Thyroid diseases can be seen frequently in people with sun spots. Intense sun exposure during early childhood and adolescence can also damage the skin and cause sun spots. Sun spots on the face are usually observed on sun-exposed areas such as the upper lip, cheeks and forehead. Rarely, they may occur on the chin and forearms. It manifests itself as dark colored irregularly limited spots that are not raised from the skin. Sun spots usually tend to darken during the summer months and after tanning beds.
Patients with sunspots, i.e. melasma, should constantly use broad spectrum sunscreen and stay away from artificial light sources such as solarium. Hormone medications and birth control pills should not be used unless absolutely necessary.
How to get rid of sun spots on the face?
Sun Spot Treatment:
The depth of the spot should be determined before treatment. Spot creams, oral antioxidant pills, laser treatments and chemical peels can be used alone or together in the treatment of sun spots. Those suffering from sunspots should regularly use sunscreen products with a factor of at least 30 every 4 hours during the day, summer and winter. In addition, even when using sunscreen, you should not be exposed to direct sunlight too much, take care to stay in the shade and wear a hat and glasses. They can use foundation or powder compatible with their skin color on a concealer base. These concealers should contain sunscreen. Thus, both the spots are covered and the treatment is supported.
