Small, dark spots on the skin are commonly a symptom of sun damage and skin aging. These discolorations are referred to as brown spots or sunspots. They usually appear on areas of the skin that are frequently exposed to the sun, like the face, hands or chest. Our team at Maia Plastic Surgery offers options for sunspot treatment to restore an even skin tone for a more youthful appearance at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.
Sunspots or brown spots on the face, hands or other areas are usually caused by sun damage. These collections of pigmented cells that are a result of UV ray exposure are not dangerous, but they can be undesirable on the skin. The appearance of these “age” spots is more common on individuals 40 or older, but they can begin earlier with certain skin types or more frequent sun exposure. The good news is that there are several skin treatments for brown spot removal.
Removing Brown or Age Spots
If you want to remove brown spots and even the tone of your skin, there are a few different approaches available. Laser treatments are very effective at fading sunspots – the laser energy can target the darker pigmented skin cells to remove them from the surface. Other therapies that can reduce the appearance of age spots include chemical peels, microneedling and dermabrasion, all available at Maia Plastic Surgery. The added benefit is that these treatments can also improve the overall firmness, texture and tone of the skin.
