Is skin bleaching safe? I have 3 black sun spots on my face and bleaching was recommended by a beauty salon.

Facial pigmentation: Your "black sun spots" are probably more correctly called solar lentigines. Bleaching is not very effective. Laser is better but must be done by trained professional. There are also some unsafe options sold in some countries. For more about treatments for solar lentigines, see http://dermnetnz.org/lesions/solar-lentigo.html ...Read more

I have little white spots on my skin they do not itch or burn or cause any pain. Could they be sun spots?

Is skin resurfacing always done with chemical peels? I want to have my skin resurfaced to help get rid of my acne scars and sun spots, but i feel like a chemical peel might be too harsh on my sensitive skin. Are there any other skin resurfacing options th

There : There are a few options when it comes to skin resurfacing for acne scar and pigmentation issues. Chemical peels and lasers are two options. Another option that works well for treating just portions of the face is dermabrasion. This produces more of a physical sanding of the skin. The idea with all 3 procedures is to remove the outer layer of skin cells. New skin then regrows into the area to create a smoother, more even pigmentation. ...Read more

Chemical peels,: Laser resurfacing, and dermabrasion are all methods of removing a portion of the skin surface that stimulates healing, and development of collagen and elastic fibers (along with a new skin surface) that reduces (but does not remove) scars. If your skin is sensitive, the treatments designed to reduce acne scarring will need to be less severe (and will be less effective). Laser may be most precise. ...Read more

Yes, : Yes, skin resurfacing to treet acne scars and sunspots can be done with lasers. Besides chemical peels dermabrasion is another option. The goal with any of the treatments is to remove the outer layers of skin cell to then allow the body to reline with new, fresh skin cells. I wouldn't say that one method is any less harsh than the other necessarily. That are lasers available that are non-ablative (don't actually remove skin cells) that can help treat pigmentation problems. This would be less harsh for your skin but wouldn't be expected to improve your acne scarring. ...Read more
