Redness, spots and discoloration on your skin can be caused by a variety of things. Aging, getting too much sun exposure, and even changes in your blood vessels underneath your skin can cause spots to form on the face.
Brown spots may include:
- sun damage,
- age spots,
- freckles, and
Red spots may include:
- broken capillaries,
- port wine stains, and
The good news is, these spots can be successfully treated with a combination of prescription medications, the correct skin care products, and often IPL (intense pulsed light). Our office offers Laser Genesis, an intense pulsed light (IPL) laser that has no down-time, fast recovery and minimal side effects so you quickly get back to your day-to-day life.
Laser Genesis skin therapy is an innovative, technologically advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin, and help reverse the earliest signs of sun-damage and aging in both men and women. Micro-pulses of laser energy targets unwanted brown spots and facial redness (rosacea) and also activates collagen remodeling to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Although the individual treatment results are subtle, the overall effect of a treatment series can be quite dramatic. On average, patients require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s skin conditions and needs vary. This is a great no-downtime laser treatment that leaves your skin glowing! It can be used year-round on any skin type.
As mentioned above, the Laser Genesis procedure has also been scientifically proven to produce new collagen. Patients can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects or down-time such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. A few patients have reported a slight pinkness to the skin that disappears within a few hours of treatment. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.
