Brown spots, or age spots, can appear on the skin as a result of excessive sun exposure, aging or even genetics. You may not be able to prevent them from happening, but there are ways to reduce them.
Getting Rid of Age Spots and Brown Spots
If you’re one of the many people insecure about pigment on their skin, you’ve probably done your research on methods to eliminate it. There are plenty of solutions available to help correct these concerns, but depending on your condition and skin type, some treatment options may work better for you than others. Be sure to consult with an expert before choosing a treatment option, as a dermatologist or skin specialist is more fit to suggest the best solution from the start.
Our treatment options for age spots and brown spots include the following:
- Skin Care Products – There are several medical-grade products you can purchase to help promote healthy skin and lighten pigment. Ask your Anders Dermatology skin specialist for recommendations.
- Facials and Peels – Custom chemical peels and facials can renew and hydrate skin while addressing sun damage and other imperfections. These treatments are formulated for your specific skin type!
- Microneedling – This skin rejuvenation treatment can correct pigment, as well as scars and stretch marks, while triggering natural collagen production. The result is clear, smooth skin and even tone and texture.
- Excel V – Safely and effectively reduce pigment and achieve clear skin with our laser treatment. This option can eliminate several cosmetic concerns with minimal downtime.
Aside from treating sun spots once they’re visible, you can also try to prevent them by applying sunscreen before being exposed to the sun—and reapplying as needed. But as mentioned, the appearance of pigment on your skin cannot always be prevented due to natural causes.
