On some people they can spread to 20mm or more, usually round the side of the face. I don’t think they bother everyone as I see many people just let them go.
My sun spots were depressing me, so I decided to get them lasered away. I’m told that Lasers in untrained hands can harm the skin, so I was very careful who I consulted. I went to Dr. Emerson because a friend of mine went, and says they are wonderful, and because she’s also a doctor She’s kind and understanding and doesn’t talk down even a 1 mm brown spot. The one on the end of my nose was probably half a mm but she found and pinged it off with a smile.
First the Emla cream
goes on to blunt any pain. Then I got on a couch with eye shields and the laser machine pinged at the brown spots like an elastic band. It’s not painful. After a few days they develop a little crust and fall off.
With the sun spots treated, different Lasers could also do red veins and white heads at the same time. The two white heads had their heads chopped off with a sort of skin fryer. Afterwards they looked like little craters.They’ve taken longer to go. You can see crater mark between my eyebrows but Touch Eclat
disguise cream fills it in. The crater’s gone now – about 10 days later
The red veins round my nose had a laser that felt like a cool wind. They disappeared almost right away
Laser treatment is also supposed to ‘stimulate the collagen’
. I asked Dr Emerson if she had ever actually seen any collagen being stimulated. She hadn’t. I can’t find any pictures of it either.
