Do You Have Spooky Spots Appearing on Your Skin?

Brown or age spots, also known as liver spots or sunspots, are common skin imperfections that typically appear on areas of the skin that are frequently exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands, shoulders, and arms. These spots are often harmless but can be bothersome from an aesthetic perspective and can make you appear older than you desire. Fortunately, there are various cosmetic treatments available to help remove or reduce the appearance of spooky brown or age spots – here are some of the treatments we offer at Creative Facial Aesthetics to scare away those unwanted skin spots.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin’s surface, causing it to peel off gradually. This process helps to remove the top layer of skin, where brown spots are often concentrated. Chemical peels can be done in varying strengths, with stronger peels providing more significant results but also requiring more downtime.


Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin. This can help reduce the appearance of brown spots over several sessions. Microneedling increases the production of collagen, which can help with hyperpigmentation and other aging issues in the skin. It’s a relatively gentle treatment with minimal to no downtime, making it suitable for many skin types.

Laser Therapy

Laser treatments, such as intense pulsed light (IPL) and fractional laser therapy, target melanin in the brown spots, breaking it down and allowing the body to naturally eliminate the pigmented cells. These treatments can be highly effective and offer noticeable results with minimal downtime.

Combining Cosmetic Treatments

In some cases, we may recommend combining multiple treatments for optimal results. For example, a combination of laser therapy and chemical peels can address both surface-level and deeper pigmentation issues.

Sunscreen and Sun Protection

Prevention is key when it comes to brown spots. Regularly applying broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and wearing protective clothing, such as hats and long sleeves, can help prevent new spots from forming and protect the skin from further sun damage.

It’s important to note that the effectiveness of these treatments can vary from person to person, and the choice of treatment may depend on factors such as the severity of the spots, skin type, and individual preferences. Our skincare professionals at Creative Facial Aesthetics can help determine the most suitable treatment plan for your specific needs.

There is no reason to be scared of brown or age spots. Although these imperfections can be spooky for many individuals, several cosmetic treatments are available to help address these skin flaws.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

Robin M.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
