Most people desire to have smooth, even-toned skin, free of darks spots and other blemishes, but it’s often not easy to achieve. Dark spots often appear without warning, and have traditionally been treated with the use of cosmetic creams and serums. However, finding an effective remedy often depends on first identifying what causes the dark brown spots, then determining how you can treat it.
What causes dark brown spots?
Dark Brown spots are usually caused by sun damage, but they may also occur because of skin conditions such as acne and melasma, as well as due to aging and genetics.
Laser and light therapy have become very effective alternatives for treating hyperpigmentation. The Alma IPL by Alma Lasers is one of the most effective technologies on the market for the treatment of dark brown spots. The device uses intense pulsed light technology to reduce their appearance.
Treatment with the Alma IPL does not require the use of numbing agents, and takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The light waves emitted by the device target the dark pigments in the skin, which then absorb the light. This action breaks up the pigments, which are subsequently absorbed by the body.
It usually takes about 3 to 5 treatments spaced several weeks apart, to effectively clear dark brown spots. There is no downtime associated with the procedure, and your skin will be noticeably smoother after treatment.
The Alma IPL treatment is available at Khrom Dermatology, Brooklyn, NY. Dr. Tatiana Khrom has a lot of experience treating a variety of skin conditions, so you can expect excellent results. Call (855) 454-7666 to book an appointment, and learn more about how to treat brown spots.
