When you need brown spot removal in Chandler, AZ, come to New Image Med Spa. Brown spots are composed of concentrated pigment molecules called melanin or concentrated pigment cells called melanocytes. These brown spots can develop for a number of reasons. Causes can include excessive sun exposure, genetic factors, and medications like estrogen among others.
All of these can contribute or cause sun spots and brown spots. This excess melanin can reside in many different skin layers, and depending on which, may require different treatments. At New Image Med Spa we can identify where the brown spots reside, and provide the according treatment or treatments necessary to remove them.
We offer a number of treatments that have proven effective in significantly reducing or removing brown spots. These services are all carried out by certified Estheticians trained in the safe and effective use of technology designed for comfortable and effective brown spot removal.
Photofacials – Our Palomar pulsed light systems excel at brown spot removal. With an incredible reduction in downtime over previous treatments, the RejuveLux Process is both quick and effective. Palomar systems use a special handpiece that can filter light into different spectral bands. Specific bands are particularly good for different treatments, and your Esthetician will ensure you receive the spectral band best suited for brown spot removal.
These pulses of light are absorbed by your brown spots, sunspots, and blood vessels. This light is then converted into heat. The heat dissolves the cell responsible for the unwanted pigment, and shrinks the surrounding vessels. It can be used anywhere except the skin surrounding the eyes.
Microdermabrasion – For surface brown spot removal, microdermabrasion can be very effective. This non surgical option safely abrades the skin using micro crystals. These crystals are rapidly vacuumed into a waste container and disposed of after the procedure. Oxygen is increased in areas where the skin cells have been abraded, causing the body to rapidly replenish the damaged cells with healthy new ones.
After cleaning the skin, it will be toned and treated. The Esthetician will then perform up to three passes over the desired area. Treatment ends with crystal removal, a moisturizing masque, and an application of sun block. Skin will usually exhibit a pink hue for up to 24 hours after the treatment.
Chemical Peels – Chemical Peels are a wonderful option for brown spot removal in Chandler, AZ. At New Image Med Spa we use patented PCA® Peel Exfoliating Treatments. These peels actually inhibit melanin pigment production through exfoliating and bleaching of the trouble area. PCA® Peel Exfoliating Treatments come in a variety of formulas including the HQ free treatment, a great choice for those with sensitive skin or allergies to hydroquinone.
Most conditions only require light peels which are gentle and cause very little discomfort, and results can be dramatic. In addition to brown spot removal, chemical peels can also cause a noticeable reduction in fine lines, acne, and improved skin tone and texture.
We will help you determine whether a single treatment or a combination of treatments is right for your unique brown spot removal, so that you can achieve the best results. Contact New Image Med Spa today for a free consultation.
