Sun Spots Treatment
Exposure to the sun’s UV rays or even tanning bed UV lights can create changes to your skin. Over time, small spots or freckles can appear on skin that is overly exposed to UV rays. These brown or sun spots are common with sun damaged or older skin, appearing on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands – any skin exposed to UV rays. At RIVKIN Aesthetics, we offer non-invasive options for sun spots treatment to fade away these dark lesions at our clinic in Los Angeles.
In California, we have plenty of sun, and many people have sun spots on their skin. Even with careful application of sunscreen and wide brimmed hats, UV rays find their way to the skin and bring out the melanin in your skin. Melanocytes are the pigmented skin cells that cluster together to form brown spots, also termed sun, age or liver spots. While not harmful, brown spots are a cosmetic concern since they can make the skin look older and impact the tone of the skin.
Removal of Age Spots
One of the most effective, non-surgical ways to remove brown or age spots is with laser skin treatments. At RIVKIN Aesthetics, we have several laser devices and treatments for different skin issues. For removing ages spots, we usually choose our intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment or our Fraxal laser treatment. Both can be performed with minimal to no discomfort or downtime and usually take less than an hour to perform. To effectively remove the age spots, a series of treatments are performed a few weeks apart.
Another option for sun spots treatment is a chemical peel. We offer a Cosmelan® pigmentation treatment that is painless and effective for treating brown spots, hyperpigmentation and melasma. This is one of the best non-laser options for removing brown spots on the skin.
If you have age or brown spots you want removed, there are non-invasive treatments available to improve the tone of your skin. To schedule a sun spots treatment consultation at RIVKIN Aesthetics, contact our clinic in Los Angeles to book your appointment.
