At Ellemes Medical Spa in Atlanta, GA, we specialize in the removal of unwanted dark spots on the skin primarily through the use of laser skin treatments.
Ever wonder where those little dark spots come from? Most causes of those tiny brown spots on the skin are formed as a result of damage from excess sun exposure. It’s for this reason that it is so important to wear sunscreen, preferably on a daily basis, to help prevent dark spots from reoccurring.
What is laser dark spot removal?
As the name implies, this treatment involves the removal of unwanted or unsightly dark spots on the skin by way of using laser treatments, as the number one treatment for getting rid of discolorations and dark spots is laser therapy.
There are a variety of lasers available that can provide you with the results you want depending on your specific needs, goals, and skin problems. The goal of these treatments is to reduce and even eliminate uneven pigmentation to provide a more even appearance.
How do lasers help remove dark spots?
The laser is pointed at the dark spots on the skin, and once fired, will heat up and destroy the darker pigmentation of the skin. Laser treatments can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to complete. The process is non-invasive and there is no downtime.
You’ll start to notice the dark spots flaking and going away over the course of a couple of weeks. Multiple sessions are often recommended for optimal results.
