Brown spots on your skin can cause you to look much older than you actually are. As a result, many people look for safe and reliable ways to have them removed. Choosing the right method for the treatment of brown spots becomes a little easier when you have some basic understanding of what caused those unwanted spots to show up in the first place.
While many individuals associate these spots with aging and often refer to them as age spots, the fact is that the simple passage of time had little to do with their formation. They most likely got there in response to the harmful UV rays of the sun through the years. They are often referred to as sun spots, which is actually a more accurate term.
There is a substance called melanin in your skin that produces pigment. When you spend time in the sun working on achieving a dark tan, you are actually increasing the amount of melanin that is present. The skin produces additional melanin when it is exposed to sunlight as a means of protection against the harmful rays. That perfect tan develops when the melanin level has increased evenly through the skin.
When you repeat the process of soaking in the sun through the years, your skin will reach the point at which the melanin gathers in small patches at concentrated levels. These places become visible in the form of brown spots. If you have them, you can achieve a younger look by getting rid of them through safe and reliable treatment at our office.
One of the most popular ways brown spots are treated is with the use of laser therapy. Lasers are highly concentrated beams of light, and they can be used to treat the skin in different ways. During a consultation with our specialist, you can learn about this treatment and all of your other options regarding the treatment of brown spots. We offer a variety of treatments, including in-office and at-home therapies. In addition to laser therapy, common treatments include chemical peels, medical-grade skin products, and prescription products.
