|About||The Alexandrite laser effectively treats pigmentattions, brown spots and birth marks. The laser light selectively targets pigmented areas, causing them to break up and fade away. The treated areas will become dark and rough and may be sensitive for up to a week as they heal. In order to avoid unintended scarring, it is essential not to pick at scabbing or wash the area too vigorously. During this time, it is important to protect the area from sun exposure or other irritation.|
Can lasers remove sun spots?
Absolutely they can! Laser sunspot removal treatments are a great way to erase mild sun damage, freckles and even getting rid of or greatly reducing the appearance of irregular pigmentation and light brown spots that show up on the face, neck and chest which are known as sun spots.
When can I see my results?
While each individual who comes in for laser sunspot removal treatment may all have sunspots to remove. The number of sessions that may be needed will depend on several factors including how dark the sunspots are that they want lightened or get rid of, how many sunspots are to be treated, and where they are located on the body. Each laser sunspot removal treatment builds upon the last treatment, and will allow your skin to gradually show a reduction in the appearance of the sunspot.
Our experienced technicians will go through what you may experience and how many sessions may be required depending on your case. Not all sessions can be completed in one sitting, and they may be done as close as 4 weeks apart, this is to allow skin cell turnover to happen naturally. We want to give your skin enough time to recover from the last laser sunspot removal treatment before treating it again.
What can I expect during my laser sunspot removal treatment?
Laser sunspot removal treatment is similar to that of a camera flash. It offers a frequency of light that is absorbed on the dark pigmented spots found on your skin called sunspots. The lighter skin around it will not be picked up by the laser, as it is not pigmented like the sunspots.
Laser sunspot removal treatment can take anywhere of up to 30 minutes, depending on the areas you are having treated, and many patients have noted the treatment is only slightly uncomfortable, but nothing that is not manageable. We may recommend that you use a numbing cream to make the appointment feel a lot more relaxing and comfortable.
Once the treatment has completed, you may notice some redness and/or swelling the day after. This is completely normal, within 4 to 7 days after, you will begin to notice the sunspots flake off, and look like coffee grounds.
Laser sunspot removal therapy is only good for removing sunspots you already have; it is in no way a barrier or a protector from the sun to help prevent more sunspots from appearing. This is why it is so crucial that you continue to protect your skin from the damaging sun rays (whether they be natural or artificial) by following the treatment aftercare instructions and wearing sunscreen.
Where can I get laser sunspot removal treatment near me?
Sunspots can be found anywhere on your body that often sees the sun without protection from SPF clothing or sunscreen. We are able to treat most areas, and the most common areas being your face, neck, and chest.
