Shh! Anti-agers no one but you need know about: How can I reverse the unsightly results of too much sun?
Q: I am a man in my senior years with some small brown sunspots on my forehead. I have heard of skin peels to treat them. Would you recommend those?
A: Hello, sir! As you suggest, this is probably sun damage. Even non-sun worshippers such as yourself build this up over a lifetime, despite your best efforts.
A medium-deep chemical skin peel or laser treatments can minimise this but I urge you to go to a dermatologist for either procedure as you want to first exclude any chance of your spots being early skin cancers.

Consultant dermatologist Anjali Mahto of Self London (selflondon.com) is such a doctor, and she recommends BBL (broadband light), a laser-like treatment that fires controlled energy into the skin to break up pigmented blotches and calm redness as ‘likely the superior option’.
It doesn’t really hurt and your patches will peel away and significantly fade over time. You’ll likely need at least three sessions, four weeks apart.
At Self, these cost £800 apiece but, outside of London, BBL or IPL (which is similar to BBL) treatments can start from £200.
But again, please choose a dermatologist to assess and treat you — it is worth the extra expense for your safety!
