When talking about aging skin, people tend to think of wrinkles as the ultimate annoyance. But while sagging skin and premature folds are problematic, many find them playing second string to brown spots.
Commonly referred to as age spots (or liver spots), these imperfections can build up on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. In the end, you may feel like your true appearance is hidden beneath these dark spots and patches.
You shouldn’t put up with anything that makes you feel less attractive or confident – brown spots included. After all. they’re just concentrations of melanin in your skin. They don’t need to define you. And with the treatment options available at the Laser Aesthetic Center, you can get started feeling better.
If your skin isn’t satisfying you, schedule a consultation with our Hinsdale skin care clinic. We’ll meet with you, discuss your treatment options, and find one that’s going to deliver ideal results without making you uncomfortable along the way.*
What Causes Brown Spots on the Skin?
It’s all about sun damage. Over time, your skin is continually exposed to UV rays. These rays encourage the production of melanin, the pigment that gives your skin its color. A healthy amount of melanin leads to evenly-toned skin. But when new melanin builds up, the results are noticeable. Initially, you’ll see your overall skin looking tan. But some areas will eventually experience concentrated melanin accumulation. At this point, flat tan, brown, or black spots will appear on the areas that receive the most sun exposure.
Brown spots are common in adults over the age of 50, but they can form on younger skin, too. If you’re placing your skin in harm’s way without sun protection, yo could start seeing age spots as early as your twenties.
At 30, you certainly don’t feel old – so why look it? Seek treatment that rejuvenates you skin, and removes superficial spots.
IPL Treatments for Brown Spots in Hinsdale
We’re all looking for comfortable solutions. That’s why IPL treatments are so remarkable. They deliver short pulses of laser energy to the skin. During the process, these pulses are accompanied by the IPL handpiece’s cooling tip, which keeps the skin feeling cool and you feeling relaxed.*
A series of IPL treatments will be the most effective against brown spots – typically four separate sessions. Your treatment will be personalized according to your skin type, so that the laser is never overly strong. Within a few days of your treatment sessions, the damaged skin spots will flake painlessly off.*
IPL treatment has brought so many of our patients happiness. If you’re feeling anxious about brown spots, get in touch to learn more about your potential for treatment.
Curious About Chemical Peels?
Unlike IPL treatment, chemical peels don’t use light energy. But, in the same way intense pulsed light does, they remove the outermost layer of sun-damaged skin.
Peels are versatile, and can be made in different strengths. The Laser Aesthetic Center offers a variety of peels to accommodate different patient needs. No matter the makeup of your peel, it will tackle the dead and spot-covered skin on your face’s surface, revealing fresh, healthy, and even skin beneath.*
Your skin should look the way you want it to – you’ll reap the rewards and see an entirely new confidence level to boot. If that means getting rid of brown spots, then we’d love to help. Simply contact our Hinsdale skin clinic to take the first step.
