Age Spots Huntsville
Do you have brown spots, commonly called “age spots” or “liver spots” that are distracting from your skin’s natural beauty? These pigmented lesions may be present at birth, but most occur with age or as a result of overexposure to sun rays. These lesions are dark in color due to a high concentration of melanin in that specific area. These lesions can be successfully lightened or removed with modern laser technology.
Our laser emits an energy of light that is absorbed by the abnormal concentrations of melanin. The melanin is broken down leaving the treated skin looking uniform in color and texture. This treatment is done in the office and no anesthesia is necessary. The laser pulse feels similar to the snap of a rubber band and afterwards the skin will feel similar to a slight sunburn.
The treated area may be pink for two to four weeks and then return to its natural smooth coloring and texture. The most commonly treated areas are the chest, hands, and face. Most lesions are completely removed or significantly lightened after just one treatment. A second touch up treatment may occasionally be necessary. These lesions will not recur, however, continued exposure of unprotected skin without sunscreen will result in further damage and new pigmented lesions.
Pigmented lesions, or age spots, on the face may be best treated with skin care products that you use at home. Depending on your specific problem, a chemical peel may be the recommended treatment.
