Age Spots & Brown Spots in Washington, DC
Age spots and brown spots are commonly seen on the skin as it ages, often as a result of sun damage. Also known as sun spots, these dark spots on the skin can appear anywhere on the body but are most commonly seen on the face and hands. The Center for Laser Surgery offers effective laser treatments for reducing the appearance of age spots and overall sun damage on the skin.
How are Age Spots and Brown Spots Treated?
Laser treatments are commonly used for reducing the appearance of age spots and rejuvenating the skin. Through this process of laser skin resurfacing, concentrated beams of light are used to carefully remove damaged top layers of the skin so new, healthy skin can grow back in its place. Today’s advanced technology allows dermatologists to control temperature, treatment depth, and other factors of laser treatment for creating optimal results without damaging healthy skin near the treatment area.
