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?
If you are treating one brown spot, the cost will be about $50 for the treatment. However, if you are looking to treat multiple spots, the treatment will range between $100 – $150. Book a consultation to determine how much your treatment will be!
