Sun exposure can damage the skin over time. Sun spots are evidence of damage to the skin from UV rays, as they are brown spots that are a collection of melanin in the skin. Most sun or brown spots are not cancerous, but any unusual skin lesions should be evaluated by a doctor. True sun spots will not pose a health risk, but they can make your face and hands look older. If you want sun spots treatment, come see us at HMS Plastic Surgery in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale, FL, area.
If you have freckles and brown spots appearing on your face, hands and chest from sun exposure, there are non-surgical treatments to remove these skin lesions. These sun spots can mar the appearance of your skin, affecting the even tone and texture. Treatments include options such as topical medications that can fade the dark spots on the skin, but a more reliable procedure is skin laser treatments. There are non-ablative laser therapy options that can target the darker skin cells and allow the dark spots to flake away.
Laser Treatment for Brown Spots
Light energy in laser treatments can effectively remove dark pigmented skin cells without harming the surrounding skin. Options such as intense pulsed light, or IPL, treatments can remove dark spots and sun damage on the skin without ablative effects. While options like laser resurfacing can remove brown spots, they also remove all the top skin cells, requiring downtime to allow the skin to heal and repair. With IPL and other laser treatments, there is no downtime needed.
For those with brown, age or sun spots on their skin, there are treatments to restore even skin tone that looks younger with laser treatments. To determine which laser skin treatment is right for you, come see us at HMS Plastic Surgery. Dr. Harry Salinas is a board certified plastic surgeon who can offer his expertise on the best treatment to solve your skin imperfections, such as removing sun spots.
