Dark Spots & Ageing Spots


Brown spots on skin have many names such as age spots, liver spots, sunspots, skin discolorations, hyperpigmentation, melasma or freckles. While these spots are harmless, many people think they are unsightly. These spots usually start to appear after age 50 and grow larger as a person ages. Brown spots most frequently appear on the face, the scalp and the hands. The main cause of the brown spots is too much exposure to the sun. Prevention is accomplished with sunscreen, sunblock, and prevention of sun exposure.

Laser Treatment for Dark Spots and Ageing Spots

Dark spots have a variety of clinical appearances and they develop from the proliferation of epidermal cells. They often appear on the back or chest, but can occur on any part of the body. Seborrheic keratoses grow slowly, in groups or singly. Most people will develop at least one seborrheic keratosis during their lifetime. Although no specific etiologic factors have been identified, they occur more frequently in sunlight-exposed areas. The Gentlemax Pro produces an intense beam of light that burns and destroys the growth. Laser light cleans (sterilizes) and seals as it cuts tissue, which reduces bleeding, pain, and healing time.

How Many Treatments do you need?
Often, a single treatment can reduce the pigmentation dramatically. However, patients with darker pigmentation will probably require additional treatments. We will normally ask our clients to return 4 – 6 weeks after the treatment for a follow-up. At this time, if there is still pigmentation, a re-treatment can be done.
How much time is required?
Appointments will range from 15-30 minutes depending on the number of brown spots being treated.
How do I take care of my skin after?
After a dark spot treatment, you will want to care for your skin similar to having a mild sunburn. Using warm (not hot) water while cleansing, and using SPF in the days that follow treatment.
How much does it cost to treat dark spots?

Pricing for this treatment is determined by the amount of pigmented spots, or size of area treated.

A single spot or Sebhorreic Kerotosis treatment is $65, and sporadic pigmentation is $175.

A full photofacial (pigmentation treated all over the face) is $299.

Neck add on for photofacial: $50

The Difference ELEGANCE Makes

At Elegance Medical Aesthetics, we believe that each patient is unique, requiring his or her own treatment that is different from anyone else’s.  So much of the cosmetic industry is “over-hyped”  with clever marketing lingo that creates a confusing mess of services that may or may not be suitable for you.

That is why we take a standard medical approach with each patient. When you come in with something you’d like to change about your appearance, our first step is determining a proper treatment plan for you. This is done with a thorough consultation so we can listen to your goals and understand who you are as a person.
