Over the years, our skin can start to form dark pigmenting on the facial area for men and women. Also known as pigmented lesions, otherwise known as age spots or sunspots. Many cosmetic companies have created products that claim to help fade these dark spots over time, but if you are looking for quicker results that are non-surgical, you should consider laser treatment. Here at Shondra L. Smith, MD Dermatology & Advanced Aesthetics, we provide a service called laser removal of pigmented lesions for men and women! This treatment could be an excellent gift for Father’s Day to help boost your confidence.
What is Laser Treatment?
Dr. Smith’s treatment takes less than 15 minutes using the Apogee Elite system. This laser system is used to remove pigmented lesions on your face with a specific device that distributes a particular wavelength of light attracted to melanin. This treatment is non-surgical, and there is no downtime and no healing required. After the process, your skin will appear healthier and younger. If you want more radiant and youthful skin, this treatment is exactly what you need! The number of treatments will vary. It depends on the depth of the pigment, determined by the actual damage. After your first treatment, Dr. Smith will let you know if she recommends any future sessions to achieve optimal results.
What Causes Pigmented Lesions?
Over the years, we develop old sun damage that current unprotected sun can begin to bring out and become more evident on the skin. Laser treatment targets these dark spots and removes them, creating a clear and smooth skin surface. It’s important to continue wearing sunscreen daily, even after the treatment, to ensure your skin is protected from developing further sun damage.
