Dark Spot Remover

Melanin is what gives our skin its color.  Pigmented lesions are dark in color simply because melanin is abnormally concentrated in one area of the skin.  High concentrations of melanin can be due to various factors.  Some types are present at birth, but most occur with age or as a result of overexposure to the sun’s damaging rays.  The quickest and most effective dark spot remover is the Q-switched laser, fewer treatments are required than with other methods.

Age spots, sun spots or liver spots are premature aging brown marks, which appear on the backs of hands and the face.  Sunburn freckles are the result of sun damage and occur on the back, upper chest and shoulders.  Most are harmless, but all are signs of aging and may be unattractive.  In most cases, age spots are not harmful but patients opt to remove them for a more youthful appearance.  Most brown age spots often fade or disappear with one to two treatments.  It can take up to three weeks to see the final results with our dark spot remover.

How does the laser work as a dark spot remover?

Energy from the laser is very well absorbed by cells containing excessive concentrations of pigment – and not well absorbed by normal tissue – so the laser stimulates your body to eliminate the unwanted excessive pigment while having little or no effect on other tissues or on normal skin color.  Most people find that the laser treatment of pigmented lesions is not painful, each purse of the laser light is similar to the snap of a rubber band.  If you are tan or have been using self-tanning lotion, it is best to wait two weeks for the tan to fade before having treatment.

About 60-80% of common freckles and age spots resolve after one dark spot removal treatment.   Some need a second treatment and a few need to be treated more than twice.  Some blemishes do not disappear completely, but will be significantly lighter in color after treatment. It is best to wait at least 4-8 weeks between treatments so that the maximum amount of fading can take place.

Scarring is very rare.  Loss of pigment from normal skin is rare and usually minimal.  You can prevent re-occurrence by protecting from sun exposure.  Hypo-pigmentation (lightening of skin) or hyper-pigmentation (darkening of the skin) are quite infrequent and are almost always temporary.
