Brown or sun spots on the skin are common as you get older. Years of exposure to the damaging UV rays of the sun can result in darker pigmented spots on the face, hands, neck and chest. While sun spots can occur anywhere on the skin, they are more common on the areas that are regularly exposed to the sun. At Be That Beautiful™ Plastic Surgery, we offer effective sun spots treatment at our clinic in Beverly Hills.
Whatever you call them, liver, age, sun or brown spots, these skin freckles are all signs of sun damage. Over decades of sun exposure, melanin in the skin collects and creates brown spots. Most people who have sun or age spots are 50 years old and beyond. The collection of spots on the face, neck, chest and hands can result in an older appearance. To restore an even complexion and skin tone, there are a variety of brown spot treatments we offer.
Cosmetic Brown Spot Removal
There are a few different options available to reduce brown or sun spots on the skin. Laser or IPL treatments can target darker pigmented skin cells and remove them to reveal more youthful-appearing skin. These treatments use light energy to destroy darker skin cells, allowing them to exfoliate and flake away after the brown spot removal treatment. Most laser and IPL treatments do not require downtime. Laser skin resurfacing can be used to remove suns spots, but there is a period of skin healing after this treatment.
Chemical peels are also effective at improving sun damaged skin. For skin with multiple sun spots, a medium or deeper chemical peel may be recommended to achieve the desired result. Chemical peels can also diminish lines and wrinkles that also occur with aging skin.
