Sunspots are constant reminders of those carefree days of our youth spent in the sun, oftentimes without enough sun protection. Boy, do we wish we tried harder when we were younger. But it turns out that those sunspots don’t have to be so permanent after all.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just approved a new laser treatment from Cynosure, called PicoSure, that targets sunspots. It works by using short-pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second to break up the targeted pigment.

It’s the first safe and effective picosecond aesthetic laser designed specifically to treat dark spots and sunspots. Plus, it can also be used to remove tattoos.

Do you have any sunspots or dark spots you would like to laser away? What other methods have you tried?
