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 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 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.
