What are Dark Spots and where do they come from?
Dark spots, also called age spots and liver spots, are a common occurrence among both men and women who have high exposure to the 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. Dark 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 dark spots from your skin, our experts have formulated many treatment options. Each plan is specific for your 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.
Dark Spots Removal Treatment Options
The appearance of brown spots can be reduced by using the following procedures:
During an IPL, 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.
In this technique, the skin is deeply exfoliated during a microdermabrasion. 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.
During a chemical peel, 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.
Microneedling is another effective treatment in helping treat dark spots. This device uses several small needles to help prick the skin and stimulate collagen production.
Microneedling with Radio Frequency
Microneedling with radio frequency is a treatment similar to microneedling, however with the added benefit of radio frequency to help boost results quickly and allow for healing from deep within the skin’s layers. At Ellemes Medical Spa, we utilize the Vivace RF Microneedling device, which is one of the most safe and effective radio frequency microneedling devices in the market.
