People living in Stratford upon Avon who are concerned about the sunspots they might have developed due to prolonged sun exposure, should contact Renew Skin and Health Clinic to benefit from a professional consultation.

Sunspots, age spots, freckles and actinic or seborrhoeic keratoses are mainly caused by a prolonged exposure to UV rays. Although, they are usually harmless and shouldn’t be a cause for concern, some people consider them unaesthetic and want to remove them. Age spots are also triggered by the natural process of ageing and they are mostly common in over 40-year-old adults. As already mentioned, they are no reason for concern, but they may hide, in rare cases, a more serious condition. This is precisely the reason why people living in Stratford upon Avon should immediately contact the closest practitioner, once they notice an abnormal evolution of the skin spots.

If you notice a change in the shape, color or size of your spot, or in case it bleeds and becomes itchy, you should seriously consider contacting the closest Renew Skin and Health Clinic to be set a diagnosis. Our specialists and highly experienced dermatologists may recommend you to use a vitamin A based cream if your affection is mild. However, there are also other options in treating sunspots, age spots and freckles. Among the most popular procedures employed in age spots removal or sun spots removal is the IPL (intense pulsed light) laser treatment. The results are remarkable, but you may need to undergo the spot removal treatment several times to ensure the best results.

Although these sunspots, age spots, seborrheic keratosis or actinic keratosis are usually harmless, you should also know that in rare cases, a serious condition might be concealed by taking the form of a harmless sunspot. Life-threatening conditions such as malignant melanoma can be tracked earlier in their development and efficiently cured. In order to avoid your condition from worsening, the Renew Skin & Health Clinic dermatologist in charge of your case might suggest you undergo a biopsy which will make possible the setting of an accurate diagnosis. In case you need to completely remove the spot, the plastic surgeon will suggest a minor operation procedure in order to safely and completely remove the skin lesion and prevent its recurrence.

Smaller and more superficial age spots and sun spots can be easily removed with superficial chemical peels and IPL laser therapy, but the larger or more protuberant ones will require radiosurgery, which is renowned for its highly effective cosmetic results, chemical cauterization and deep chemical peels.

For those living in Stratford upon Avon, Renew Skin and Health Clinic offers the most efficient and the safest procedures for sun spots removal, age spots removal, seborrheic keratosis removal and actinic keratosis removal treatments in Stratford upon Avon. Prior to any procedure you might undergo, a dermatologist will consult and give you all the necessary information you should be aware of before getting your sun spots or age spots treated.
