Ask Mickey: Erasing Sun Spots

Q. What do I use to erase sun spots?

A. As a makeup artist, I’m more qualified to tell you how to conceal sun spots, so I consulted with Connecticut based dermatologist Dr. Loyd Godwin to give you more permanent options. He advised that sun spots can be challenging to remove. There is a prescription product called Solage that can be applied twice daily to sun spots to help to lighten them. Also, dermatologists can use lasers, chemical peels, and cryotherapy in their office to help lighten these lesions. Vigilant sun protection will then be needed to decrease the chance that these lesions will darken again over time. I hope this helps.
