Brown Spots Removal
What are brown spots?
Brown spots (age spots, freckles, lentigos, and liver spots) are areas of exaggerated pigmentation. These areas may be due to various conditions including birthmarks, sun exposure and aging. Lasers treat these conditions by selectively targeting the cells that contain pigment without scarring or damaging the surrounding skin.
What areas respond well to this type of laser?
Small brown areas, such as age spots on the face or back of the hands, respond well to treatment. In addition, diffuse larger brown spots, such as those on the chest, arms and legs also respond well to this type of laser treatment.
How long do the results last?
Brown spot removal is permanent, however new areas may develop as aging and sun exposure continue.
Does the procedure hurt?
Mild discomfort can be anticipated. A brief, small stinging sensation may be experienced.
When will I see results?
Once treated, scabs will develop over the treatment areas. These scabs or crusts may take 3 to 14 days to resolve leaving clear, pigment free skin.
