Dark spots, age spots, or sun spots are flat oval blemishes of different sizes. These blemishes are usually brown, grey, or black and can appear on the face, hands, chest, back, legs, and arms. These spots are typically harmless and don’t require medical treatment. However, if you suspect that a spot may need medical treatment, we advise to book an appointment with your healthcare provider for further diagnosis.

Age spots, dark spots, and sun spots are caused due to excessive sun exposure. They commonly appear on frequently exposed areas like the face, legs, arms, and chest. Your skin has a self protection mechanism which involves the production of melanin. As your body is exposed to sun, it wants to protect itself by producing more melanin. Over time, this leads to dark patches on the skin.
Everyone will experience age spots, sun spots, and dark spots in their lifetime. This is because we all share the same protection mechanism and we are all exposed to sun at some point. Some patients, however, are more prone to these blemishes. Patients that are more prone include those that sun tan, sun bath, are taking photosensitive medication, and patients who have a hormonal imbalance.
Laser treatments can help by targeting the pigment within the skin and breaking it up. By using the M22 laser, we can focus a beam on the melanin. This energy causes the melanin to break up and be metabolized over time using your bodies healing response. Results typically take 3-5 sessions as darks spots can vary in severity, size, and color. Typically, spots that are deeper in the skin tend to be more persistent and more challenging.
Laser treatments are known for being quick, and many of our treatment sessions take less than half an hour.
The exact length of your treatment will vary depending on your specific condition, type of laser, and extent of your treatment.
To get the best results with laser skin treatments, most patients will require multiple sessions over the course of several weeks.
The exact number of treatment visits you require will depend on the severity and type of imperfection you wish to treat, as well as factors that are unique to your skin and body.
One of the most common side effects of laser skin treatment is a sensation similar to sunburn following your procedure, which will go away in just a few days. Often, the site of your treatment will appear dark or crusty following your visit—this is naturally part of your body’s healing process, and will fade away to reveal your results over time.
Usually, patients with large varicose veins are not good candidates for laser treatment, and tend to opt for surgical treatment.
For patients with particularly severe acne, medications may be required in conjunction with your laser treatment to see desired results.
Because there are so many factors that come into play—such as the type of treatment and extent of the affected area—the price of treatment will vary from one person to the next. After meeting with our staff, we’ll determine the best way to achieve your desired results.
However, we DO provide 12-month, zero interest financing for most of our procedures—achieving healthier, clearer skin has never been more affordable.
