Brown Spots

Lentigines (also referred to as sun spots or liver spots) are small, flat, round spots on the skin that begin to appear later in life in sun-exposed areas. They are particularly common on the face, neck, arms, and backs of the hands, usually sparing the knuckles. A single spot is referred to as a lentigo.

Treatment Options

Q-switched Ruby Laser
The Q-switched Ruby Laser is the most effective treatment for lentigines (brown spots). The treatment is rather quick and feels like a “rubber band snap”. The area will turn darker brown for about a week then peel off and be gone.4 The risk of any type of scarring is extremely low. The success rate is over 90%. In short, it is an easy , safe way to get rid of pesky “age spots” with dramatic results.

Fraxel Laser
The Fraxel laser is best for patients who have a diffuse amount of mottled pigment either on their face or arms. The procedure is virtually painless. The area will be pink for a couple of days after the treatment. A patient may need from 1- 3 treatments to gain the maximum benefit. The Fraxel Laser is considered very safe.

Fractora
Fractora is best for patients who have a diffuse amount of mottled pigment on their face. The procedure is virtually painless. All that is needed for anesthesia is a numbing cream applied before the procedure, making the procedure virtually painless. After the procedure, the treated area will be pink for a couple of days. A patient may need from 1- 3 treatments to gain the maximum benefit.
