Brown spot removal in Forest Hills at our practice is also accomplished with laser treatment. Laser technology is also used to treat port-wine stains and other birthmarks. Brown spots, or age spots, are blemishes that develop on the surface of the skin resulting from sun exposure. Ultraviolet light from the sun causes the skin to produce additional melanin and results in pigmentation. As patients age, repeated exposure to the UV rays causes some of the melanin to stick together in groups in the skin; this shows up as age spots. Many times prescriptions are effective at removing age spots. A bleaching cream can be very effective at this. Lasers can also be effective in removing sun spots, as can intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments. Cryotherapy can also be used to remove brown spots. In this case, a freezing agent is put directly onto the brown spot and destroys the melanin that has grouped together in the skin. Dermabrasion also is effective in freeing patients of age spots. In this procedure a wire brush actually removes the surface layer of the skin. Chemical peels are also used to eliminate brown spots. If you have brown spots that you would like removed, contact us for an appointment to see which method will work best for you.
