Despite your best efforts at protecting your skin from the sun, you may find yourself with pesky brown spots, also known as hyperpigmentation. However, laser and light technology can be used to reduce or eliminate unwanted spots. Photo rejuvenation is often used by physicians in Woodbury, MN for brown spot removal.
What is photorejuvenation?
Photorejuvenation is sometimes referred to as photo facial. It is a light-based technology that is used to lighten the skin, and it also improves skin tone and texture. Photo rejuvenation is suitable for most skin types, but patients should ask their physician for a skin consultation, to make certain that they are a good candidate for the procedure.
How photorejuvenation treats brown spots
The photorejuvenation device emits intense broadband light that target the melanin pigments in the skin. Melanin is the substance that helps the skin to get its dark color. As the light waves are absorbed by the melanin pigments beneath the skin, the brown spots break apart and are scattered.
One session can last for up to 45 minutes, and it typically takes about 3 to 5 treatments to realize the benefits of photorejuvenation.
After treatment the brown spots will actually become darker for a few hours, or a few days. Then the darkened spots will gradually fade away, or in some cases the skin will shed to reveal fresher skin beneath.
