SUN SPOT TREATMENT
Photorejuvenation, when done properly, almost always consists of a series of 3-5 treatments, usually one every three to six weeks. The benefits of photorejuvenation treatments are achieved with little discomfort and minimal risk.
Brown and red spots on the skin can be more than just annoying. When the skin shows any signs of discoloration, you can look much older than you are, and it prevents you from ever achieving an even-toned complexion. The best laser for sun damage, which includes brown spots and age spots is our Ultra LaseMD which is superior to IPL, here's why:
UltraLase MD and IPL are both types of light-based treatments that can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including sun damage, age spots, and rosacea. However, there are some key differences between the two treatments.
UltraLase MD uses a laser, while IPL uses a broad spectrum of light. This means that Ultralase MD is more targeted and can be more effective at treating specific skin conditions. IPL's broad spectrum of light is less targeted.
UltraLase MD is also more effective at treating deeper skin conditions, whereas IPL is more effective at treating superficial skin conditions.
Overall, UltraLase MD is more effective and may require fewer treatments.
Even if you pride yourself on wearing sunscreen on a daily basis, chances are, your skin is still exposed to the sun. One of the most commonly seen skin reactions to the sun is the formation of sun spots. The appearance of sun spots can seriously mar a perfect complexion.
HOW SUN SPOTS REVEAL YOUR AGE
When sun spots and age spots appear as a result of too much sun exposure over the years, they can really age the face. Those unattractive brown spots can add years to your look and distract from your signature features. Sun spots can also appear on the hands, chest and back. In fact, the hands are one of the first areas to show the signs of aging.

HOW TO DETERMINE THE BEST LASER FOR ME
Selecting the proper treatment to target your sun spots depends on understanding the exact location and type of pigment we’re targeting with the treatment. For example, sun spots are typically caused by excess melanin, or pigment, at the junction of the first and second layers of the skin (the epidermis and dermis), and having this understanding will allow us to pick the correct device that will target the right pigment at the right level of the skin and effectively treat the spots. Other methods of treating sun damage include chemical peels and microneedling. All laser therapies are very targeted, making it essential to locate exactly where on the skin you need attention, this makes the treatment effective and safe.
