Laser Treatment for the Removal of Dark Spots
Laser Treatment for the Removal of Dark Spots

Laser light treatment is a flash, similar to a camera flash. The frequency of that light is best absorbed by the dark pigmented spots in the skin. The surrounding light skin, which is not pigmented, does not pick up that light very well, so the dark pigmented cells absorb virtually all of the light’s energy and simply peel off after a few days. dark spots

The laser treatment itself takes approximately 30-minutes and is mildly uncomfortable. The sensation you feel is similar to a rubber band snapping on your skin. One treatment is often enough to be effective, but some people may want to do as many as three treatments depending on the level of sun damage.

Laser Treatment for the Removal of Dark Spots

It’s not uncommon for people to have brown spots on their hands, arms or face. The pigment is consistent and you usually can’t feel them because they’re flat, not raised.

These brown spots are often referred to as age spots, liver spots or sun spots. In medical terms, these brown spots are known as lentigines, which are basically sun spots caused by damage to the skin. Lentigines tend to make our skin look weathered, old and unsightly.

The Cost of Laser Treatment

The cost varies depending on the areas involved and the number of treatments you need. Larger areas of skin cost more, while smaller areas won’t be as expensive. Also, more treatments come with discounts. So your price per treatment decreases as you schedule more procedures.

Types of Laser Treatments

Laser treatment for dark spots uses an Intense Pulse Light (IPL) laser. The laser head (about the size of a postage stamp) emits light that’s absorbed by dark skin cells. The darker the skin cell, the more energy it absorbs, killing that particular cell.

Then the dead skin cells move to the top of your skin and flake off. As they flake, you just peel off the dark spots.

The surrounding skin cells aren’t harmed. Because they don’t have the dark pigment, they don’t absorb the laser energy.

This treatment works great for lighter skin types. Because the laser can clearly differentiate between the normal skin and the dark spot, it’s highly effective.

Chemical peels can help erase dark spots as well. If you have a darker skin, you may opt for a chemical peel instead of a laser treatment because it’s safer for skin with more pigment.
