Brown or sun spots are a common skin formation. These spots can look like freckles, but they become more common with age, which can make your hands, face, chest or other area look older. Sun spots are caused by sun damage, but brown or age spots can be caused by genetics, medication, sun exposure, aging or hormonal changes. At Precision Medical Specialists, we offer brown and sun spots treatment to restore even-toned skin at our facility in Wellington, FL.
Sun or age spots are usually brown or tan and flat, and they are caused by excess melanocytes, the pigment cells in the skin that contain melanin. Sun exposure is a common cause of brown spots on the skin. These spots may not occur until later in life, which is why they are often referred to as both sun and age spots. The hands and face are common places to find age spots, but the arms, chest, neck and scalp can also have brown spots.
Cosmetic Brown Spot Removal
If you have brown spots you want removed, there are a few different treatments that can fade or remove these pigmented skin spots. Laser treatment that targets dark skin cells can remove the melanocytes from the skin, resulting in even-toned skin. Other options include peels or skin resurfacing treatments that remove the top skin cells and rejuvenate the skin. Brown spots can vary in depth and type. The cosmetic treatment for effective removal may differ, depending on what part of the skin contains the pigmented areas.
Most brown spot removal treatments can be completed in a quick visit to our office. Laser treatments for brown spots are pain-free and usually completed in less than an hour without any downtime needed. Skin resurfacing can result in red, flaking skin for several days, but the rejuvenated skin will look brighter, more youthful and even-toned once the new skin cells are revealed.
