What are Brown Spots and where do they come from?

Brown spots, also called age spots and liver spots, are a common occurrence among both men and women who have high exposure to sun. Due to increased sun exposure, the skin defends itself by producing more melanin. Clumps of melanin are usually seen on the face, back of hands, shoulders, back, arms and top of feet. Brown spots are common and not seen as dangerous; however, they do interfere in the overall look and beauty of an individual’s skin.

To remove brown spots from your skin, our experts have formulated many treatment plans. Each plan is specific for a particular skin type. Each skin type responds to its respective treatment differently. Before beginning your treatment, your skin type and sensitivity will be thoroughly analyzed to customize a plan that is right for you.

Brown Spots Removal Treatment Options

The appearance of brown spots can be reduced by using the following procedures:

  • Light Therapy:

In this therapy intense pulse light is used. The intensity of the laser is directed on the melanocytes which are melanin-producing cells. Once these cells are destroyed no more extra melanin will be produced. After a few weeks, the dark spots will eventually fade and the skin will become clear. This therapy requires 2-3 sessions.

  • Microdermabrasion:

In this technique, the skin is deeply exfoliated using a microdermabrasion device. Our experts use highly sterilized devices which have abrasive surface. With those devices, the upper surface of the skin is brushed away and the underlying fresh layer comes out. In this procedure, new collagen is produced which favors a reduction in dark spots.

  • Chemical Peels:

During the chemical peel treatment, an acidic solution is applied on skin which exfoliated or burns the outer layer to the extent of dark spots. This treatment may take multiple session for optimal results.

Flat black or brown spots, also called sunspots, are not a medical challenge to your health. Ellemes Medical Spa understands your requirements and ensures careful removal of these spots and gives you satisfactory results. Since it is commonly observed among women of fair complexion mostly after the 40s, therefore, lifestyle counseling is an important gesture here. Our experts will first analyze your skincare routine and lifestyle approaches to make the correct selection of treatment for you.
