Age spots, also known as brown spots and solar lentiges, are the result of cumulative sun exposure. Our body naturally produces melanin to protect itself from UV rays, resulting in a tan. As we age, our body’s ability to defend itself against from the sun’s damage begins to deteriorate, resulting in unwanted pigmented spots on the skin.
Dr. Darvish can reduce and eliminate age spots with a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments. The IPL laser directly targets and treats sun-damaged skin, age spots, skin texture and photo aging. The results following a series of laser treatments are made permanent along with adequate home care including the use of proper sun protecting including sunscreen.
