How Do You Get Rid Of Brown Spots On Skin

 Dark spots, age spots, sun spots – what IS pigmentation? … It’s these ageing dark spots of bother that is known as pigmentation, caused by sun exposure and specifically the UVA rays which penetrate deep into your skin and cause ageing. …

Pigmentation means coloring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the color of your skin. Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production.

Some types of pigmentation, like those caused by acne, can eventually lighten up over time (keep in mind this doesn’t happen overnight, but can take a few months, if not longer before you see a difference). But, the majority of discoloration needs to be treated with high-powered active ingredients and in-office treatments to fully eradicate spots on the surface. Not sure what to get done to banish your spots once and for all? We’ve got the answers here.

If You Have Minimal Darkness, Try Microdermabrasion
During microdermabrasion, the uppermost layer of skin is gently removed to get rid of sunspots, darkness and other types of superficial and minimal discoloration. There are some versions of microdermabrasion, that offer a secondary step where specialized anti-pigment ingredients are infused into the skin to further brighten it.

If You Have More Stubborn Spots, Try a Chemical Peel
Salicylic acid, glycolic acid, Jessner and TCA chemical peels are often recommended to banish discoloration. Combination or blended chemical peels are powerful at speeding up results and removing deeper pigment. “Their potency can be manipulated to suit the type and depth of pigment.”

If You Have Discoloration From the Sun, Try Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
A popular choice for targeting sun-induced discoloration, IPL involves light-based energy pulsed onto the skin while simultaneously targeting blood vessels. The light seeks out the discoloration in the skin to lift it up and out. Expect for the treated areas to turn dark and flake off in a few days. “We sometimes do an IPL treatment following two chemical peel treatments to really clean up the skin.

ENVIRON® COOL PEEL

 

The Environ® Cool Peel targets sun damaged, lined skin and uneven skin-tone, it’s also great for rosacea and problem skin. Its gentle but effective formulation protects the epidermis so there is no excessive redness or recovery time.

What is it: The Environ Cool Peel is described as a new, modern facial peel. Instead of the aggressive acid peels of old, which can strip away vital layers of the fragile epidermis, this uses a lower concentration of lactic acid over light, repetitive treatments. The aim is a more gentle but effective way to achieve healthier skin, with less redness and downtime too – bonus. The 1-hour Cool Peel Treatment is recommended as a course of six.

Photo Facial Treatment

To get more dramatic and permanent results, one of the most effective treatments for removing brown spots on the skin is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial Treatment. IPL treatment removes dark spots from the skin with minimal to no side effects. In addition to removing brown spots, IPL also targets redness and blotchiness in the skin and is considered a very effective anti-aging technology in the cosmetic medical world. .

How does the treatment eliminate the dark spot from your skin?

A broad-spectrum light is applied in a series of gentle pulses over the skin. This light penetrates through the skin and breaks up the pigment in the skin. The brown spots heat up, turn darker, and then flake off in a few days, leaving a beautiful, flawless complexion.

This method is very effective and very convenient. This process generally requires 3-5 treatments to completely eliminate all brown spots and rejuvenate and revitalize the skin.
