What do you mean: Your question is not clear as to what you mean by sunspots. If you mean spots on your face chest or the top of your hands that are due to sun damage, laser can remove those.If you mean scaly brown spots on your chest waist or back they are due to a fungus and you can treat those with an over the counter anti fungal cream or see a doctor / dermatologist.
