Sun & Brown Spot


Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center
5 I love the care I receive at this center. Even though I have amazingly young looking skin for 52 they are helping me prevent fine lines from taking over. I highly recommend them. I love that the staff is professional, positive and personable. I will be seeing them for years to come. They also have a super clean modern office space with easy parking.
Many pigmentation concerns that develop on the skin are caused by sun damage. At Thrive, we have a wide range of procedures that are used to correct the damage caused by photo damage and can pick and choose the ones right for each individual. Sun spot removal is specific to one’s needs and our team can help in finding the best treatment option for rejuvenating the skin and reducing or removing brown spots and sun spots that develop over time. Our physicians are skilled in diagnosing skin growths and spots and can help choose the best, most effective procedure based on various skin tones and types. We can administer chemical peels and laser therapies for exfoliating and regenerating the skin whenever necessary.

No damage is too severe or too insignificant. After working with thousands of patients, we will work with you to choose the best brown spot removal treatment for your needs. Thrive is equipped with the latest tools, including Profecta Medical Imaging, to help us accurately recognize the extent of sun damage. This system uses UV light, which the skin absorbs and reflects back towards the camera. Because this type of light reaches the epidermis and the stratum corneum, we can see dermatological conditions within these areas of the skin and, thus, truly tailor treatment to your needs.

Many patients may enjoy solutions such as lasers and IPL. IPL treatment is non-ablative and effective at addressing a number of skin concerns. It delivers multiple wavelengths of light to the skin’s surface for rejuvenation in a safe manner. The RevLite Q switch 1064 laser available at Thrive can soften fine lines and wrinkles while improving the texture and tone of the skin. This can reverse sun damage and aging while revitalizing the appearance of the skin with improved collagen production.

Sun Brown Spot Removal Another way to correct specific skin issues is with customizable skin treatments such as chemical peels. Our practitioners can design a chemical peel that is suited for one’s skin type, condition, and needs. We manipulate the variables and ingredients in our chemical peels to provide effective results that can improve acne, diminish dark spots from sun damage, and reduce the signs of aging, all in one solution.

Preventing Sun Damage

While it may feel nice to bathe in the warmth of the afternoon sun, it can be hazardous to the health of our skin and accelerate the signs of aging. While a light tan may look nice now, the harmful effects of UV rays will last forever. Many patients who have had sun exposure may develop conditions such as skin cancer, sun spots, and fine lines and wrinkles.

At Thrive, we encourage our patients to practice appropriate sun protection no matter what time of the year—even on cloudy days. This can help in avoiding the effects of sun damage and prolong results of certain cosmetic services received at our practice.
