The presence of sunspots on your skin can leave you looking much older than your actual age. These spots often develop due to previous activities that seemed like the right thing to do at the time. All that time you spent soaking in the rays during previous years may leave you having regrets now when you realize you are paying the price for it in the form of unwanted dark spots on your skin. If this is your case, don’t be discouraged. We offer safe and effective sunspot removal treatments at our med spa.
Melanin is a substance in your skin that provides pigment. Its levels will increase in response to sun exposure as a way of protecting the skin against the harmful UV rays. The benefit you receive from this is a golden tan. However, overexposure through the years can cause the melanin to concentrate in spots. When this happens, you will no longer have an even skin tone. In addition, the dark spots that form as a result will not fade the way a tan will after the season ends. These spots will remain there until they are removed by some type of professional sunspot removal treatment.
If you want to enjoy clearer skin and the younger appearance that goes along with it, you should talk to our specialist about ways these unwanted spots can be effectively removed. There are multiple methods available that will improve your looks without requiring extensive periods of downtime for recovery.
Laser therapy is one of the most widely used treatments for the removal of sunspots. They work by breaking up the concentrated melanin and dispersing it. The spots will gradually fade after the treatment. You will then have a more even tone that gives your skin a clearer look overall.
Another sunspot removal treatment option is BroadBand Light™ treatment, also known as BBL therapy. As the name suggests, this treatment uses carefully controlled BroadBand Light™ to lessen the appearance of the sunspots. For both laser treatment and BBL therapy, multiple sessions are usually required for optimal results.
