Hi, I have a couple of sun spots on my face that kinda look like permanent pimples and was wondering if it possible to remove these without scarring, etc?


Usually sunspots can be treated with laser. In those with fair skin, it is much easier to treat sunspots, as there is a significant difference or contrast between the sunspot and the skin colour. With olive or darker skin types, we have to be more careful with our laser selection and settings, and often it is not possible to treat with laser.
