Pigmentation

Sun Spots, Brown Spots, Age Spots & Photo Damage

Photo damage or sun damage occurs with exposure to sunlight whether or not we intentionally tan. Despite its many useful functions, skin has very little ability to shield itself against the sun. For the most part these changes occur most frequently on areas that receive chronic exposure including face, chest, neck, the backs of the hands, arms and legs.Photo damage accumulates over a lifetime, building upon itself until it becomes visible or apparent.

One of the most effective ways of treating freckles or brown spots is by using a laser with a precise wavelength specifically attracted to the unwanted spot. Laser removal of these lesions is a quick and relatively comfortable procedure that can effectively remove unwanted lesions safely and permanently in the comfort and privacy of our clinic.

This revolutionary treatment is designed for both men and women wanting to remove a variety of dark pigmented lesions or vascular features.

The laser emits a focused, precise beam of light energy that is absorbed by the pigmented lesion. The unwanted lesion absorbs more light than the normal skin. This results in the thermal destruction of the unwanted lesion, which is eventually removed by the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

 

Photo damage removal with an IPL device is considered the most effective treatment. The procedure is quick, non-invasive with minimal side effects. Two or three IPL treatments will provide dramatic improvements over several weeks.
