Laser Dark Spot Removal
Everyone likes to have a sun-kissed glow, but after your suntan fades unwanted freckles may remain. Dark spots are caused by an excess of the pigment melanin and often appear after prolonged UV exposure. Now the Icon Aesthetic System can easily correct many types of hyperpigmentation including dark spots, sun spots and birthmarks with noninvasive laser treatments.
How Does Dark Spot Removal Work?
Using high powered dark spot removal technology, the Icon is able to safely penetrate the deepest layers of the skin to eliminate excess melanin. Topical creams only lighten dark spots on the surface of the skin, while the Icon goes deep into the dermis to achieve fantastic results. Laser dark spot removal fades even the darkest birthmarks without damaging the surrounding skin. Pigmentation will disappear rapidly to reveal clear and flawless skin on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs. The ultra-concentrated laser works by shattering brown spots into tiny particles that the body can naturally eliminate through the lymphatic system and circulation. Depending on their darkness and size, most dark spots will require only a few short laser sun spot removal treatments to be completely removed.
What to Expect During Dark Spot Removal
After treatment, you will start noticing clearer skin in one to three weeks. Most patients do not find laser removal of pigmented lesions painful, and usually do not require anesthesia. Patients often compare the laser pulse to the snap of a thin rubber band and can generally resume their normal activities following in-office treatments without experiencing any major side effects. Some redness and minor swelling is common, but will resolve rapidly.
If pigmented lesions and sun spots have crept onto your complexion and you are unhappy with the look of your skin, laser dark spot removal treatments with the Icon at Protea MediSpa can be part of the solution.
