What treatments does Skin and Laser Dermatology Center offer for brown spots?
Depending on the kind of brown spot or darkened area, Skin and Laser Dermatology Center has a number of different treatment options.
If the brown spot is of medical significance, your provider will treat it appropriately, potentially by observing, biopsing, or applying cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen) to the area, among other possibilities.
If the brown spot can be treated cosmetically, your provider or skin care expert may recommend one of the following, among others:
- Laser treatments: these can be effective for improving the appearance of brown spots. There are a number of different lasers that may be recommended depending on the pigmented area and unique factors relating to each patient. Some of the lasers commonly recommended at Skin and Laser Dermatology Center for brown spots are Picoway lasers, Fractional CO2 Resurfacing laser, and the Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, and GentleLASE.
- ABMD Brightening Cream: a specially compounded cream that is dermatologically tested to reduce the appearance of dark areas.
- Chemical peels and Melanage Ultra Peel : these peels excellent treatments for rejuvenating the skin and reducing hyperpigmentation by promoting cell turnover.
When should I have brown spots medically evaluated?
It is important to have brown spots and the entire skin routinely medically evaluated. It is possible for new lesions (spots and/or marks) to occur and existing lesions to change over time. By carefully self-monitoring the skin for changes and routinely being examined by a dermatologist, potential skin conditions can be identified and treated early. Patients also benefit from peace of mind, knowing that their skin is in good health.
