Sun spots, age spots and "liver" spots are brown spots that can appear on the sun-exposed skin of your face, chest, hands, arms, and legs. These brown spots can occur at any age and in individuals of all skin types but individuals with light skin are most susceptible. The daily use of a broad spectrum sunscreen can prevent or lessen the likelihood of developing brown spots.
We can safely remove sun spots by selectively targeting brown pigment. The laser delivers light energy in a series of very fast (nanosecond) pulses that shatter the dark pigment in the skin causing it to disperse and eventually clear, leaving a more even toned appearance. Since the energy is quickly absorbed there is minimal risk of damage to the surrounding skin.

What does the skin look like after treatment?
The treated spot will initially turn white and then darker before it sloughs off in one to two weeks. Occasionally the skin can develop a bruise or a purple discoloration surrounding the treated area. Upon healing, the treated site may appear pink before returning to its normal skin tone.
