Portland, OR patients discover laser IPL treatment for brown spot removal
Spots that appear on the skin due to sun exposure have been called brown spots, age spots, or even liver spots. None of the names sound attractive. These spots may develop here or there or as freckles. Over time, the damage worsens leading to darker spots and poor tone and texture of the skin. Thankfully, Dr. Adam Maddox and the team at Thrive in Portland, OR offer laser IPL treatment for brown spot removal.
Preventing brown spots
Prevention and being proactive is an important part of protecting your skin. We cannot deny that the warmth of the sun feels good, especially on a beautiful day. However, patients should wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day regardless of the weather. The more exposure your skin gets to ultraviolet light, the more damage that occurs, and the earlier the skin appears to age and look damaged. The effects of sun damage accumulate over time so it is important to protect your skin from further damage.
Treating sun damaged skin
Although prevention is an ideal treatment, for some patients damage has already occurred. Patients who are already experiencing signs of aging and sun damage may have brown spots, wrinkles, and poorly textured skin. At Thrive, we offer laser IPL treatments as an effective way to remove sun damage and improve the quality of the skin. Laser treatments help patients regain the brighter, more supple skin of their youth.
Aside from enhancing the skin, laser treatments have a number of benefits including:
- Safe – Treatments are safe for many skin types. The adjustable settings allow the treatment to be customized and comfortable for each patient.
- Effective – Many patients see results after a single treatment. A series of treatments or periodic touch ups help maintain the results.
- Gentle skin rejuvenation – IPL treatments give patients brighter, more even skin tone.
