If you’re on a quest for younger, healthier-looking skin, then you might be frustrated by those brown spots that are starting to dot your complexion. Whether you refer to them as age spots or
freckles, these brown spots can seriously age your face – especially when you want a complexion that’s Beyoncé-level flawless.
Before you can get rid of brown spots, it’s important to understand why they happen in the first place. These annoying spots are typically a result of sun damage, but they can also occur from a hormonal imbalance or trauma to the skin. The cause of brown spots on the skin is important to understand because it could help determine an optimal treatment plan.
At Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetics in Cerritos, CA, a consultation will be used to identify the most likely source of your brown spots, as well as which procedure will be the most beneficial. Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetics offers the following treatment options for brown spots:
- IPL PhotoFacial: This innovative procedure uses waves of intense pulsed light (IPL) to penetrate the deepest layers of the dermis. Light energy targets each layer of skin, working to eliminate uneven pigmentation and brown spots. By targeting multiple layers of skin, this procedure not only treats current brown spots, it also targets brown spots that haven’t appeared on the surface of your skin yet. Brown spots that are present on the surface of the skin can be expected to start fading after a week. However, for ideal results, most patients will require 3-6 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.
- Chemical Peel: At Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetics, we offer two chemical peels. Our Vitalize Peel is designed to reduce the signs of aging and improve skin texture. Our VI Peel is designed to reduce acne scarring and hyper-pigmentation. Some patients may respond better to chemical peels, especially those with darker skin tones. A chemical peel contains a special cocktail of chemicals that are applied directly to the surface of the skin. After treatment, patients typically experience significant flaking and peeling, as the top layer of skin is being removed. Chemical peels vary in strength, so we’ll work with you to determine which is the appropriate peel for your needs.
- Firm and Fade Cream: This special topical cream contains hydroquinone, retinal, kojic acid, and other ingredients that have been proven to brighten the skin and minimize the appearance of brown spots. The Firm and Fade Cream can also improve the appearance of sun damage, as well as other signs of aging.
