This treatment helps remove the damaged cells from the upper layers of your skin. Skin creams containing salicylic acid or alpha-hydroxy are often suggested by dermatologists. These come by the name of cosmelan or yellow peel. The entire procedure divided into two parts. The first mask is applied by the doctor who has to stay for around eight to ten hours and is then recommended to be washed off. The patient at home can use the second mask. In approximately one week of the time, you might be able to see the damaged skin peel off with the new surface being generated and thus reversing all damage caused to the skin. This procedure will leave you with fresher, smoother, and healthier-looking skin.


For this technique micro-particles such as grains or tiny crystals are used to remove the upper damaged layer of the skin. It helps in the generation of new skin cells and also boosts the formation of collagen.


Q- switched laser is one of the most common treatments for sun damage, and it especially helps to treat brown spots and freckles. Although q switched, laser not recommended if you have many places, for a few sunspots on the skin, this would be the right thing to consider. The laser energy, when directed towards the surface, feels like hot spots and is thus used with a combination of cold air directed in the same direction to reduce discomfort. There might be crusts formed in the treated area, and in that case, it’s good to apply petroleum jelly to manage them. They should heal in around two weeks.
