Available sun spot removal procedures in Portland, OR area
It is common for patients in the Portland, Oregon area to visit the practice of Thrive to speak to Dr. Adam Maddox and his team about available sun spot removal procedures available in his practice. Sun spots and other marks on the skin caused by hyperpigmentation may be unsightly and result in patients feeling self-conscious about their appearance. Many seek the help of an aesthetic medicine physician who can help address these imperfections to bring their skin back to health, wellness, and beauty.
Dr. Adam Maddox starts by consulting with patients regarding the sun spots they have on their skin that are bothersome. First, he will ensure they are not areas of skin cancer, as this can sometimes be a serious concern with marks on the skin resulting from UV exposure. Once it has been determined that these areas are not cancerous, patients can then work with the doctor to determine the best course of treatment. There are many methods available for sun spot removal. Procedures may include chemical peels, laser therapy, and IPL treatments. They can be used to rejuvenate the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and reverse sun damage that has occurred over the years. Chemical peels help with skin cell turnover while also removing dead skin cells on the upper layer of skin. These treatments may help in stimulating collagen production to add a more youthful look. These three treatments can be used in conjunction with a proper skin care regimen, which will typically include appropriate skin protection to reduce further development of sun spots and UV-related concerns.
