Sun spot removal or Solar Lentigo treatment to remove a single sunspot from a patient’s face using Liquid Nitrogen is performed by Dr. David Myers, a local dermatologist in Lehi, Utah. A single sun spot is a Solar Lentigo and multiple sun spots would be referred to as Solar Lentigines. The Solar Lentigo or Sun Spot is a benign pigmented lesion that occurs in sun-exposed areas of the face, arms, and hands. The lesions vary in size from 0.2 to 2.0 cm and become more numerous with advancing age. Solar lentigines or sun spots are not harmful but they are aesthetically important to some patients. Solar lentigines have been treated with a number of methods including topical tretinoin, cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen and bleaching agents.
If you want to remove the sun spots or are wondering how to remove sun spots Liquid Nitrogen has been used for Solar Lentigo treatment for many years with great success and a low cost to patients. The liquid nitrogen destroys the melanocytes at temperatures of -4 to -7 degrees C.
