How to eliminate dark spots on the face - medical and aesthetic treatments

Dark spot treatments, along with adopting healthy habits, are the most helpful ways to get rid of dark spots on the face and boost skin health. Dermatological clinics and aesthetic centers provide you with treatments to remove stains.

Peeling and glycolic acid

The chemical peel based on glycolic acid is a treatment that is used to eliminate the layers of dead cells from the epidermis. The goal of peel treatments is to repair and boost the skin, remove spots, clear acne and brighten the skin. It is, above all, indicated for oily skin. It is not recommended to do this during the summer, as the complexion will be hyper sensitive, especially in treatments with higher concentrations of acid.

There are 3 main types of peels designed for the treatment of dark spots. The different types vary according to the degree of penetration at varying depths in the epidermis:

  • Light peeling: the more superficial peeling uses glycolic hydroxy acids, including glycolic acid and lactic acid
  • Medium: uses TCA (trichloroacetic acid)
  • Deep: Uses a chemical solution with phenol

Remove dark spots on the face with a laser

Laser treatments work to renew the superficial and deep layers of the skin to get rid of blemishes and eliminate wrinkles. Another similar treatment is that of pulsed light (IPL) with which the cells at the origin of imperfections (varicose veins or imperfections, acne) are eliminated without damaging the rest of the tissues. Complications include redness and inflammation of the skin.

Creams for dark spots on the face

Creams are one of the most used treatments to eliminate spots on the face. The most useful cosmetic formulas for removing blemishes are formulas that contain hydroquinone, retinoic acid, retinol, kojic acid, azelaic acid, and vitamin C. Of course, the use of sun protection will always be one of the best ways to alert the appearance of spots on the skin.
