Brown spots, also known as age spots or liver spots, and excessive pigmentation give the skin a dull, aged appearance. These discolorations frequently denote earlier sun damage, which can be exacerbated by hormonal irregularities. Skin Spectrum offers a number of options for the treatment of brown spots and hyperpigmentation to both diminish discoloration and to prevent future damage – options that restore the radiance and luminosity of healthy, beautiful skin.
Your Treatment Options:
TOPICAL TREATMENTS can be used alone, but they also enhance and maintain the results achieved with procedures. The medical-grade skincare products at Skin Spectrum include lines that are renowned for their efficacy and safety such as ZO Skin Health, SkinBetter Science, SkinMedica, SkinCeuticals, and EltaMD. Retinoids (prescription strength vitamin A) and retinol, hydroquinone (bleach in varying strengths available by prescription), kojic acid, licorice, various alpha, beta, and polyhydroxy acids, exfoliants, and melanocyte-stabilizing products fade brown discoloration and prevent the appearance of new spots and pigmentation.
Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates damaged skin cells to promote the turnover of healthy new cells. This technology allows for optimal treatment results by preparing the skin, making it more receptive to products and procedures.
Chemical Peels such as the ZO Controlled Depth Peel, ZO 3-Step Peel, SkinMedica Vitalize, and SkinMedica Rejuvenize help to fade freckles, sun spots, age spots, and other excess pigmentation to reveal clearer, younger-looking skin.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments gently and gradually reduce excess pigmentation on sun-exposed areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms. Additionally, this light source treats redness and broken blood vessels, shrinks pore size, tightens skin, and can help with acne and rosacea. We recommend a series of treatments to achieve optimal results.
Clear + Brilliant® Laser treatments are safe for all skin types. This effective no-downtime procedure manages a variety of pigmentation concerns, and it provides noticeable correction of brown pigment, enlarged pores, and dull skin tone.
Spectra™ Laser addresses general pigmentation issues, redness, pore size, and acne, and it gently tightens and refreshes the skin.
ActiveFX™ fractional laser treatments and the stronger DEEPFX™ FRACTIONAL LASER treatments even the skin’s tone by removing its dull, damaged, outer layer. While this laser is the gold standard for sun damage, including pre-skin cancers and skin cancers, scar tissue and texture treatment, redness, pore size, wrinkles, and pigmentation issues, it does require one to two weeks of healing time.
