Finding the best treatment for browns spots on the face
They may also be called sun spots, solar lentigines, or liver spots, but an age spot by any name adds years to your face. The term is appropriate, because these dark discolorations develop from cumulative UV exposure over the years. Brown spots on the face are not generally a health threat, but if you have them, you are probably looking for the best treatment to regain even skin tone. Dr. Adam Maddox and his team at Thrive can help.
Laser, light, and energy therapies
Today, there are many cosmetic lasers, and light and energy therapies available to patients who want aesthetic skin improvement and anti-aging treatments:
- Carbon dioxide (CO2) ablative laser
- Erbium ablative laser
- Pulsed-dye non-ablative laser
- Nd:Yag non-ablative laser
- Alexandrite laser
- Intense pulsed light (IPL)
Each has specific applications, and each one represents a substantial investment in instrumentation and training for the practice. As a result, some doctors rely on just one or two devices, attempting to use them for varied purposes and all skin types. Results are less than satisfactory, with increased risk of side effects.
Thrive is equipped with a broad range of laser, light, and energy devices for the best possible treatment of specific conditions such as brown spots on the face.
Dr. Maddox has been helping patients look and feel their best for nearly 20 years. He applies experience and natural artistry to help each patient select a treatment that fits aesthetic goals and lifestyle. Often, a series of non-invasive chemical peels is all that is needed for beautiful results. In other cases, he may recommend broadband light therapy (IPL) or laser treatment to and fade brown spots.
