Brown Spots & Sun Damage
Several treatment options exist for brown spots and sun damage at our practice. Dr. Lisa Airan believes in providing her patients a full range of choices so that they can achieve beautiful, blemish-free skin.
- MedLite®: This laser effectively removes isolated brown spots on the face and body. A mild stinging sensation is experienced during the procedure. The procedure is performed in less than 10 minutes. Mild redness and hive-like swelling will be present for minutes to hours after treatment. A purple bruise and crusting will occur for a few days until the brown spots slough off. No anesthesia or pain medicine is required. Most patients require one treatment per area.
- Intense Pulsed Light (IPL): This laser is effective for larger areas of sun damage and brown spots. A mild stinging sensation is experienced during treatment. The treatment is performed in less than 10 minutes. Mild redness and hive-like swelling will be present for minutes to hours after treatment. The darkest spots will be darker for a few days until they slough off. No anesthesia or pain medicine is required. The average patient requires approximately 3 to 4 treatments per area.
- MIXTO Fractionated CO2 resurfacing: This laser is effective for treating diffuse sun damage and brown spots on the face. In addition to clearing the sun damage, the skin is left with improved texture and tightness. Pain medicine is given by mouth prior to the procedure to ensure your comfort. After the procedure there will be crusting for 3 to 5 days until the skin sloughs off.
