What Are Brown Spots?
We love every bit of you, even your spots, but you may not! Brown spots can vary significantly in their size and shape, and are often found on parts of the body that are regularly exposed to sunlight. Although these spots can be very frustrating, we at Beaumont Aesthetic Laser offer PicoSure and the ICON Laser to fade and eliminate these discolorations.
How Do They Form?
Brown spots, also called liver spots, are a form of skin damage that is attributable to clusters of melanin pigment. Melanin is the pigment largely responsible for our skin tone, and is the body’s natural defense mechanism against harmful UV rays.
When our skin is exposed to sunlight, the body produces more melanin to neutralize UV radiation present in the sun’s rays. This is the reason why we get a tan when we spend time in the sun.
Who Is At Risk?
Individuals who spend a lot of time in the sun or don’t wear sufficient sun protection may eventually develop brown or red spots on the skin. This can happen due to heavy clustering of melanin pigment in one area, leading to spots of various shapes and sizes.
In other cases, the patient may develop liver spots due to hormonal changes in the body. For example, patients going through pregnancy may develop a condition called melasma, which manifests in brown patches on the skin.
What Are Treatment Options for Brown Spots?
Over the counter treatment options are often too weak to remove the damaged skin cells. Luckily, at Beaumont Aesthetic Laser, our technologically advanced treatments like PicoSure and the ICON can eliminate brown spots once and for all!
Once treated, be sure to always protect the treated areas from sun exposure to ensure continued results.
