Black spots in face

The real reason for the appearance of black spots on the face is hyperpigmentation. This occurs as a result of increased melanin production. Hyperpigmentation is caused by excessive sun exposure, age, scarring, and other factors. Although the majority of the black spots are innocuous, they cause discomfort and low self-confidence in those who have them. There are a number of skin-lightening techniques that can assist in the removal of the dark patches.

If creams, serums, and retinoid solutions do not work, chemical peels and laser treatment are the next best options, as they provide greater and longer-lasting benefits.

Laser Treatment 

Laser therapy is a method that uses concentrated light radiation to reduce the appearance of dark spots. Some laser treatments target the pigment itself, while others eliminate the skin layer by layer. The dark spot layer is burnt off using this method. For the eradication of black spots, laser treatment is a better and faster option than topical treatments. Depending on the patient's condition, numerous types of laser treatments are used.

Swelling, redness, tightness, scarring, and a modest change in skin texture are all possible side effects of the operation. After the treatment, the skin takes some time to settle down.

Chemical Exfoliators 

Chemical exfoliation is a peeling technique in which the top layer of the skin is removed with the use of specific chemicals. Chemical exfoliating products typically use a variety of gentle acids to break up dead skin cells, or the top layer of the skin. Removing this layer can reveal the healthier, more uniformly toned skin beneath.

After the operation, your skin will need some time to heal and rebuild, therefore it's vital to allow it that time.

Both treatments are equally successful; however, depending on the patient's skin type, a dermatologist can recommend which method is best for them.
