Brown Spots

Skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet (UV) light exposure can cause brown spots. 
 
Find out how our skin therapies and laser treatments can help you reverse brown spots and improve your overall appearance. 

Lasers remove brown spots and patches from the skin by selectively targeting the melanin leaving the other cells in the skin untouched. This unique feature is why these procedures are the safest and most effective treatment choice for removing brown sun damage spots from the skin.

 
Laser Treatments
 
Q-Switched YAG Laser

 

Q-switching is a technique where the laser produces a high intensity beam in very short pulses. It has been used for over a decade to remove well-defined brown spots for more than a decade. Most patients require only one treatment and the results are dramatic.

 

There is some mild irritation to the skin which usually lasts a few days to a week. Patients with melasma or more serious hyperpigmentation and brown discoloration should choose other options.

 

IPL Laser

 

Short for Intense Pulsed Light, IPL treatments utilize light-based therapy to penetrate beneath the skin without damaging the surface or underlying tissues. The light then converts to heat, gently targeting dark pigmentation and skin imperfections and clearing them from the skin at a cellular level for effective, results-oriented treatment.

 

Alexandrite Laser

 

The Alexandrite laser uses an alexandrite crystal is used as the laser source or medium. Light pulses target melanin at variable depth on the skin to remove age spots, freckles and birthmarks.
