Sun/age Spots On My Face

Question

Hi I’m have really sensitive skin. I have about 20 moles/sun spots on my face. Its really ugly and I want to get rid of it. I use sun screen daily, but I get these spots. What can u recommend me to use, I don’t mind natural remedies either. Someone told me to us lemon jucie, but that will make my skin more sensitive to the sun.

Answer

Thank you very much for your enquiry and I’m going to do my very best to help you. You have a few things that we need to treat in stages. Firstly, the sensitivity. If we are going to have any chance of sorting out anything else on your skin, we first need to get the sensitivity under control, or rather “better managed”. To be perfectly honest, in your case, I would be much more effective in helping you if you could actually come and see me, as there are a few things I need to see on your skin before being able to really give you a good prescription. I need to see if there is any redness on the skin and where it is on the face. I need to be able to see if you have dilated capillaries over the skin. I need to also have a look and see whether your marks are in fact moles, or sun spots as we need to treat these very differently. I would recommend that for a period of about one month, that we get you on to Lamelle’s Serra Range. This range is aimed at restoring the skin’s barrier function, which, in most cases, is what causes sensitivity. If we can get that under control and your skin is not feeling sensitive and uncomfortable anymore, we can then get started on treating your spots. Is there any chance you can come and see me or one of our Doctors at your nearest Skin Renewal Branch? I would love to be able to help you.
