Clear Your Skin of Brown Spots in the New Year With Cutting-Edge Laser Spot Removal

If you’ve been or still are a sun worshipper, you’re likely seeing some of the sun’s effects on your skin. You may see brown spots on your face, chest, and hands. Do your hands look like those of an 80-year-old when you’re only 40? Age also contributes to these spots, especially if you have fair skin. 

If your face, hands, or other sun-exposed areas have unsightly brown spots, you may be looking for the best solution to eliminate them. 

Dr. Dennis Roberts uses the FDA-cleared PicoSure® laser system to greatly reduce or eradicate those unwelcome signs of sun damage and aging. This advanced system has moved beyond heat to treat your skin imperfections, using pulsed energy technology

What skin imperfections can the PicoSure laser system treat? 

The PicoSure laser can treat a variety of skin problems, some of which have required more than one type of treatment in the past. 

With PicoSure, you can remedy several skin issues at once, saving time and money. 

Why have I developed brown spots, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture?

You regularly put on sunscreen, but the sun is more powerful than your sunscreen. Some UV rays get through and create free radicals that destroy some of the elastin in your skin. Elastin is an important protein in your skin tissue that helps it retain its shape. Sun and the aging process together break up the elastin, causing fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. Your skin loses its smooth, silky texture and can become rough and uneven. 

The sun is also a source of those brown spots on your skin, often called sunspots. That’s because if your skin is exposed to the sun for long periods of time over a number of years, your body works extra hard to produce enough melanin, which causes your skin to tan. With enough overexposure, some melanin deposits don’t fade like the rest of your tan; they remain as dark spots. 

Changes in your hormones during pregnancy, your menstrual cycle, or menopause can also cause your body to produce excess melanin. Sometimes it leads to spots containing melanin deposits that leave your skin with the darker pigment. 

What areas of the body does the PicoSure laser help look younger? 

PicoSure laser light treatment is appropriate for treating a variety of skin imperfections on the following areas of your body:

What makes the PicoSure laser different from other skin rejuvenation treatments?

The PicoSure laser doesn’t use heat to destroy skin cells. Instead, the treatment uses pulses of energy that are extremely fast. A pico-second is one-trillionth of a second. That’s hard to imagine, but it’s not science fiction. Dr. Roberts uses a hand-held device with this special laser over the treatment area to accomplish your skin rejuvenation. 

The laser pulses destroy the integrity of the skin cells containing the excess melanin in your dark spots. This way, your body can absorb the cells with the melanin particles. Your body’s waste system carries out the dead cells over a period of weeks.

As an added plus, the PicoSure laser system helps stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, two critical proteins that keep your skin smooth. 

How many PicoSure treatments are needed?

Typically, only a few treatments — often just 2 to 3 — are needed. Each case is unique, and in some individuals, several applications may be needed to achieve your goals.
