Using laser energy that is attracted to melanin, this powerful and lightening fast Alexandrite laser can be used to treat unwanted brown spots, sun or age spots anywhere on the body. This treatment can be performed as a stand-alone treatment or as part of a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation program.
What area can be treated?
Sun, age or brown spots that are flat in nature on:
What does the treatment feel like and is downtime required?
The treatment is very comfortable and requires no anesthesia. After the treatment the unwanted brown spots will darken and then flake off over the next week. Depending on the depth of pigmentation, they will either become lighter in color with each treatment or will be gone after just one treatment. Make up can be applied immediately after the procedure. We don’t consider this a downtime procedure but don’t advise having this done if you have a ‘special occasion’ coming up in the next week or two.
Any preparation before treatment?
Treatment cannot be performed on tanned skin or if self-tanners have been used in the past 3 weeks. Prolonged sun exposure should be avoided after the procedure as it will stimulate renewed darkening of unwanted pigment. We strongly recommend the use of medical grade sun protection.
Are there other treatment alternatives?
For individuals with darker skin tones, we recommend the rejuvenating peels and products from our ZO medical-grade skin care line to address pigmentation and sun damage. Please contact our staff for your free consultation.
