What is Laser Spot Removal?
Brown spots are caused from a number of conditions, most notably from exposure to the sun. However, some patients have brown spots soon after starting medication or going through different health issues and chemical changes in the body. Brown spots are focal areas where there are more pigment cells that have pigment molecules that are found in the melanocyte. Brown spots can occur when there is excessive melanin that resides on the top layer of the skin and may also go deeper into the dermis layer of the skin. The brown spots need to be treated with laser spot removal to treat the increased pigmentation.
Lasers penetrate and break-up the brown spots and patches while leaving the rest of the skin untouched. The unique laser method is the most effective treatment for brown spots and sun damage. There is no anesthesia required and most patients will see a difference in 1-2 sessions. We use Intense Puled Light (IPL) to treat the skin issues and allow your skin to blend properly.
