WIth state-of-the-art equipment and years of expertise, we utilize lasers and intense pulsed-light therapy to neutralize the pigment-producing cells that cause freckles and other dark marks without damaging the surrounding skin.
Understanding Freckles & Spots
Freckles, age spots, solar lentigos and melasma can plague any of us. Our spots darken and become more conspicuous with time, aging and sun exposure. The sun rays stimulate pigment cells (melanocytes) to ramp up pigment production. The melanocytes then sprinkle their clumps of pigment (melanin) into our skin cells (epidermal cells). The result is that we have splotchy brown spots (such as in freckles, lentigos) and large areas of dark color (for example, in melasma).
If your age spots, or freckles are bothering you, or how you feel about your appearance, we can help reduce the appearance of these marks. Since the pigment of the age spots and/or freckles are located at the base of the epidermis, we have specialized lasers that are able to reach this layer of the skin. Lasers and intense pulsed light therapy destroy the melanin-producing cells without damaging the skin surface.
