Over time, brown spots, also known as age spots, can develop on the face. Genetics play a role in determining the likelihood of developing brown spots; in addition, sun exposure can cause these spots to appear. Dr. Ben Ligt and the staff at Light Facial Plastic Surgery in Decatur, Alabama offer treatment to reduce the appearance of brown spots and restore a smooth, youthful-looking glow.
THE BROWN SPOT REMOVAL PROCEDURE
The appearance of brown spots can be diminished with laser treatment,microdermabrasion or chemical peels. During an initial consultation, Dr. Light will determine the type of procedure that is most appropriate for the patient’s overall needs and goals. Microdermabrasion, chemical peels and laser treatments offer other anti-aging benefits in addition to brown spot reduction. These procedures reduce dry, damaged, and dead skin and cause new, healthy, youthful-looking skin to take its place.
BROWN SPOT REDUCTION BENEFITS
Although brown spots do not cause any harm, their appearance on the face is often unwanted. As a prominent, visible sign of aging, brown spots can cause individuals to look older than they feel. The benefits of having brown spots reduced include a smooth, uniform skin tone and a younger-looking complexion.
RECOVERY FROM BROWN SPOT REDUCTION
Recovery from brown spot reduction depends upon the type of procedure performed. Microdermabrasion, light chemical peels or most laser treatments require little-to-no downtime, whereas patients who undergo deep chemical peels or laser peels may want to rest at home for a few days after treatment while the skin heals. Dr. Light and our staff will guide you in the steps to take to ensure the smoothest and fastest recovery possible.
