Brown Spots and Age Spots Reviews
How Are Brown Spots and Age Spots Treated?
Generally, we treat brown/age spots through laser treatment. During this procedure, we will ask patients to lie down comfortably in one of our private rooms while our staff cleanses the skin of any lotion, oil, and dirt. We will then apply a numbing cream in order to ensure you stay comfortable throughout the entirety of the procedure. At this point, we'll be ready to begin. The laser will glide over the targeted areas of your skin, creating thermal energy that damages the skin cells that are causing hyperpigmentation and simultaneously encourages collagen production. At the conclusion of the procedure, patients will be free to return to their normal, daily lives.
