Brown spots on the lips are caused by sun exposure and heredity and are usually benign (non-cancerous) lesions. Often referred to as sun spots or moles, they are a cosmetic nuisance that can easily be treated with modern lasers.
Treatment of brown spots on the lips involves using the Q-switched YAG laser. There is no downtime and very little discomfort during the treatment process. The treatment is safe and appropriate for all skin types and tones. The duration of the treatment is rather short – most of these types of brown spots can be removed in 1 to 3 treatment sessions.
After completing treatment, it is recommended that a product with SPF protection is applied to the lips, especially if a lot of time is spent outdoors.
