Your After-summer Treatments For Sunspots Have Arrived!


Summer has come and gone, undoubtedly leaving our skin worse for wear. The problem with those summer months is just how hot they can get and how much of a toll they can take on our complexions. If you’ve got sunspots, we don’t blame you! We’re here to help.

At JTAV Clinical Skincare, we’ve assembled a selection of after-summer treatments that will leave your skin clear and dazzling. From lasers to peels, our Upper East Side office has it all! So, explore our options below, find the one that fits, and get in touch to schedule your session today.

Clear + Brilliant® Laser Treatments for Sunspots

Sunspots have met their match with the Clear + Brilliant® fractional laser! This treatment is non-invasive and uses pulsating beams of light to exfoliate layers of your skin to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.

This system doesn’t just stop at sun damage. The Clear + Brilliant® can also shrink your pore size, smooth your skin texture, and remove skin discoloration. The treatment evens the skin tone by breaking up damaged cells at the base of the epidermis. This makes it a great choice for your post-summer skincare session.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatments

Studies show that the right wavelength of light can have remarkable restorative effects on the skin. The IPL Photofacial we offer at JTAV Clinical Skincare delivers targeted light energy at a specific wavelength to gently heat your skin and restore it to a more uniform, youthful state.

Most importantly, this energy is delivered safely – without harming surrounding tissue. The IPL laser treatment provided at our office can eliminate melanin that may pool under the skin, giving rise to age spots, fine veins, rosacea, and of course, sunspots.

Erase Sunspots with Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are noticeably different from our previous two options. These aren’t lasers – far from it! There are exfoliating facial treatments made of different nutrients and acids. The most common are glycolic peels, but there are also trichloroacetic, lactic, carbolic, and salicylic peels. These components are safe and work by ridding your skin of dead cells and debris.

A typical chemical peel treatment takes only 30 minutes to perform. During this time, the peel solution will be applied to your skin and allowed to exfoliate the topmost layer. Some mild stinging may be experienced, but the treatment is generally well-tolerated.

Cosmelan® Mask Sunspot Treatments

The Cosmelan® Mask is a new, revolutionary treatment performed in two steps. First, we begin by applying a thick, peanut butter-like mask. This mask contains several ingredients, including:

  • Azelaic Acid
  • Kojic Acid
  • Phytic Acid
  • Ascorbic Acid
  • Arbutine
  • Titanium Dioxide

The mask remains on your face for 6-10 hours, but the total time depends on your skin type and the amount of sun damage treated. 

The second step is an at-home application that helps maintain your results while preventing the appearance of new dark spots and areas of hyperpigmentation. Following the treatment, the pigment targeted will appear lighter in color.
