Erasable Inc Medical Spa’s top ways to treat pesky sunspots when sunscreen doesn’t quite do the trick.
Let’s start with the basics. What are sunspots? Technically called lentigo, these spots are often called age spots or liver spots. They are a result of sun damage to your face, shoulders, hands and anywhere that is frequently exposed to the sun. What do they look like? They are generally light brown to black spots that are flat, round or oval in shape. You may notice after reading that you may have a few! It’s normal. Happens frequently when you forget to put on sunscreen. To prevent future damage, remember to keep applying sunscreen throughout your time in the sun. Whether it’s by the pool or running around on errands, the summer sun will find a way to shine on you, so the better you protect your skin, the less worries you’ll have about future sunspots sprouting up!
Ok, but what about the ones I currently have? You’re probably asking that question now that you’ve identified some areas that need some love. Thankfully, treatments can be found everywhere- in your backyard, kitchen or with us at Erasable Inc Medical Spa! Here are our top 7 ways to treat sunspots:
PICO Genesis Laser Treatments One of the most common ways to treat sunspots is through laser treatments! Thankfully, we know a thing or two about those at Erasable Inc. For sunspots, we offer the PICO Genesis treatment to zap away sunspots leaving beautiful, radiant skin. The PICO Genesis treatment works when the laser uses its light to selectively shatter unwanted pigmentation from the skin. Feeling comparable to an electric razor, this laser treatment is pain-free! After 2-3 treatments, your skin will have perfectly thrown those sunspots some shade!

Vitamins C & E Want to skip on the lasers in favor of some dermatologist recommended remedies? Let our SkinMedica products slide onto your skin with all natural vitamins C and E, which are the friendly vitamins found in most our moisturizers and serums we use everyday! These vitamins can be found in our SkinMedica Vitamin C+E Complex. Unfortunately, the complex only treats sunspots that already exist. Don’t worry though, SkinMedica’s Total Defense and Repair SPF will help prevent them too!

HydraFacial What’s better than treating your sunsports while also treating yourself? That’s right, facials not only can be used for self-care and skin maintenance, but our HydraFacial can help correct your uneven skin tone caused by those sunkissed spots. With gentle exfoliation and relaxing resurfacing, this facial cleanses, peels, extracts debris and hydrates with a nourishing serum that gives your skin a maximized glow.

Aloe Aloe plants are a staple in our Tampa backyard! Thank goodness because it is also one of the best ways to treat burns and sunspots. Just cut open a leaf and apply that cool, gooey gel to your sunspot while you literally say “ahhh” from the aloe’s cooling effects. Or just visit your market to buy a bottle.
MicroneedlingThis collagen-induced therapy is meant to trigger the body’s natural wounding process to speed up healing wrinkles and uneven skin tone like sunspots. Luckily, Erasable Inc Med Spa offers this service using the FDA-approved SkinPen. Patients see brighter, younger and more even toned skin with just 24 hours of downtime.
IPL Intense Pulsed Light Another one of our favorite laser treatments is IPL. IPL uses light energy and heat to bring pigment to the surface where it scabs up and flakes off, leaving skin looking more even toned and brighter. This procedure takes only 30-45 min with no downtime.

There you have it! Our top ways to treat sunspots. Before performing any of the professional services listed above, schedule a physical exam to make sure your sunspots are indeed sunspots. Sometimes, these spots can be melasma or worse, melanoma. Be sure before treating! And when you get the all-clear, come visit us at Erasable Inc Med Spa! We’d love the help rid you of those pesky sunspots.
You know what time it is everyone? It’s time to treat yourself! This season may be all about fun in the sun (especially for us in Tampa, Florida), but it is also the season of relaxation. Yes, you could go have a nice meal in Hyde Park, take a stroll on the Riverwalk or make the trek for a beach day at Anna Maria Island, but a perfect spa day could also be just what the doctor ordered. And what better way to relax than with us at Erasable Inc. Med Spa? Located right in our city, Tampa’s backyard, bring your girl gang and join us for the perfect spa day.
What does the perfect spa day look like at Erasable Inc? We’re glad you asked! Here is our ideal spa day laid out just for you.
Start Off By Keeping It Cool Stubborn fat keeping you from feeling your best? Our idyllic start to the perfect spa day would be to sculpt! Coolsculpt to be exact. This procedure uses controlled cooling to target those stubborn fat pockets resistant to diet and exercise safely without the invasiveness of surgery. FDA-approved, CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting.
The best part? There’s no downtime. That’s why we recommend knocking this out first during your stay at Erasable Inc. We would guide you to our exclusive Sapphire Suite where you can Netflix binge, enjoy an updated Instagram feed with our free wifi and a courtesy meal on us from Uber Eats. So get pampered while burning fat! Or rather, freezing your fat.

Get Laser-Focused Ok, now with your extra fat on ice, let’s laser in on any other spots you may find troublesome. For some of us, it may be extra hair on our back, bikini line or under arms that gives us a headache. Don’t fret! Let us help get your hair under control with our hair removal treatments. At Erasable Inc., we offer the Cutera Xeo with ProWave™ technology to remove all those hairy situations from your body. For men and women, the Xeo can treat all parts of the body and with integrated cooling, provides comfort throughout the treatment. These treatments may take a couple rounds to perfectly take effect, but why not start during your perfect spa day?
Others may not find hair to be the problem, but acne! So instead of booking a hair removal treatment, take a look into our acne treatments. Also using the versatile Cutera Xeo, our staff at Erasable Inc. will be happy to start giving your acne the kick that it needs to reveal glowing, healthy skin.

Hit The Refresh Button With your CoolSculpting and laser treatments completed, it’s time to really start the pampering! Depending on what your skin needs, we’ll offer a calming, purifying or hydrating mask. All our Erasable Inc.’s masks are by our SkinMedica line of skincare products, so you know that you’ll get the best facial for your skin type.
If a calming masque is your choice, this facial will soothe even the most irritated of skin with its green tea and chamomile ingredients. If you’re looking to purify instead, this masque helps acne-prone skin. Oil-free and gel based, this facial is formulated with cooling menthol and tea tree oil to cleanse, soothe and calm. Overly dry? Then we’ll give you a hydrating masque to build collagen and re-energize your sun-damaged skin.
