Red and Brown spots are pigmented lesions combine to create a blotchy, uneven skin tone known as sun spots. Sun spots (also called age spots or liver spots) appear over time in response to overexposure to sunlight. Our body naturally produces melanin to protect itself from UV rays, resulting in a tan. As we age, our body’s ability to defend itself against from the sun’s damage begins to deteriorate, resulting in unwanted pigmented spots on the skin.
As many as seventy-million Americans have undesirable redness and/or sun-damaged skin. Sun exposure, alcohol, medication, stress, and aging often worsen the appearance of red blotchy skin.
Common characteristics such as redness, flushing skin and Telangiectasia, dilated superficial blood vessels, can easily be treated at Skinpeccable with a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments. Without damaging the skin, the light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the abnormally dilated vessels or pigmentation. Heat then impairs the targeted vessels or lesions, and the body begins a natural healing process.
Dr. Darvish can reduce and eliminate brown spots with a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments. The IPL laser directly targets and treats sun-damaged skin, age spots, skin texture and photo aging. The results following a series of laser treatments are made permanent along with adequate home care including the use of proper sun protecting including sunscreen.
