Enjoying the sunshine increases your Vitamin D which is vital for healthy bones, improved mood, and a host of other benefits – but too much sun is a health concern. If you’ve experienced this, you might have sun spots or melasma that result in different pigmentation across the skin. There are some great sun spot removal and melasma removal treatments, such as plasma fibroblast therapy, that will leave your skin looking even-toned and revitalized.

Sun Spots vs Melasma

These are sometimes used interchangeably but there is a significant difference between the two. 

  • Sun spots: These are scientifically known as solar lentigines (and commonly referred to as age spots) and are flat spots that are either brown or black. They are caused when the skin has been exposed to ultraviolet radiation for an extended period causing an overproduction of melanin. You will usually find them on your face, hands, shoulders, or arms which have maximum sun exposure. 
  • Melasma: This is a skin condition with brown to gray-brown patches of skin. While melasma can be caused by sun damage, they are also caused by other factors such as hormone imbalances, pregnancy, medication use, and genetic predisposition.

Why Treat Sun Spots and Melasma?

Sun spots and melasma are typically harmless, but the discoloration of the skin can be bothersome for some people and even cause significant self-esteem issues. You might want to consider treating sun spots or melasma for:

  • Cosmetic Concerns: The uneven pigmentation caused by sunspots and melasma can often make the skin look aged, resulting in you looking older than you are. By treating sun spots and melasma, you’re achieving an even complexion resulting in a more youthful appearance. 
  • Damage Prevention: Sun sports are a result of sun damage to the skin, and treating them can prevent further damage to the skin. You could also reduce the risk of developing more serious skin conditions. 
  • Self-Esteem: You might find the sunspots and melasma are impacting your self-esteem and preventing you from reaching your full potential. Treatment of these skin conditions can go a long way in improving your self-confidence and boosting your self-esteem.
  • Improved Skin Health: Depending on the treatment, you might find your skin health improves because of the treatment of sun spots and melasma. Exfoliation and the use of certain skincare products can improve skin health by promoting skin cell turnover and collagen production.

Sun Spot Removal and Melasma Treatments

Deciding what sun spot removal and melasma treatment is best will depend on a variety of factors, so it’s worth consulting with a skincare technician and medical professional before treatment. Here’s a look at the current treatment options available – including the top sun spot removal and melasma treatment!

Topical Treatments 

You might benefit from topical treatments such as:

  • The skin-lightening hydroquinone
  • Retinoids to promote cell turnover
  • Vitamin C to brighten the skin
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) to exfoliate dead cells. 


Chemical peels involve a chemical solution applied to the skin to exfoliate the outer layer and encourage the growth of a new layer. This can help improve the appearance of sunspots. Microdermabrasion is a handheld exfoliating device which reduces the appearance of the spots. 


There’s the laser therapy treatment which breaks down the sunspot, as well as the cryotherapy treatment which freezes the sunspots with liquid nitrogen. A revolutionary treatment is plasma fibroblast therapy which is a holistic solution to removing sun spots and treating melasma. 

What is Plasma Fibroblast?

Plasma fibroblast is a non-invasive, non-surgical skin treatment that delivers a controlled, high-frequency electrical current to targeted areas of the skin known as the fibroblasts. These are the collagen and protein-producing cells in the dermis – the layer of skin just below your outermost skin layer. This plasma energy stimulates the cells to increase collagen production which has healing properties, with the heat breaking down melanin pigments to drastically reduce the appearance of sunspots.

Why Choose Plasma Fibroblast for Sun Spot Removal?

Plasma fibroblast therapy is fast becoming the preferred treatment for sun spots and melasma because it’s not only effective, but it has so many other skin benefits as well. 

Plasma fibroblast is non-invasive

When you choose this therapy treatment, there is no need for surgery as it doesn’t involve incisions or skin removal. This means it’s less invasive than other sunspot or melasma treatments, as there’s little downtime as well. 

Plasma fibroblast is skin tightening

Plasma fibroblast therapy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, which are needed for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. While targeting your sun spots, you can benefit from treatment that tightens sagging skin around the face, neck, and eyelids.  

Plasma fibroblast targets wrinkles

The promotion of collagen and elastin has the added benefit of reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and creases. This means you’re getting smoother and more youthful-looking skin while eradicating sun spots and melasma. 

Plasma fibroblast improves skin texture

This therapy will also enhance your skin’s texture because it promotes skin cell turnover while stimulating the growth of newer, healthier skin cells. You can enjoy a more even skin tone with diminished pore size and better texture. 

Plasma fibroblast is targeted 

This form of sunspot and melasma removal is targeted which means that practitioners can treat any specific area of concern without impacting surrounding areas. This allows for use around the face, eyes, and neck without risk. 

Plasma fibroblast has long-lasting results

You will start to notice the results of this treatment in reducing the appearance of sunspots and melasma almost immediately. But the better news is you will see the full benefits developing over a few weeks or months as the collagen continues to regenerate. 

Plasma fibroblast treats other conditions 

This can be used to treat sun spots and melasma, as well as other skin concerns such as unwanted moles, skin tags, warts, and seborrheic keratosis.
