What are sunspots?
Sunspots are flat areas of skin discoloration and generally appear after the age of forty. They are most common in areas that get exposure to the sun like your face, shoulders, arms and legs.
What is Melasma?
Melasma is another common skin problem where we see whitish/gray patches when the skin is exposed to sunlight (image above). The American Academy of Dermatology suggests that this is most common in women.
What are Freckles?
Freckles are inherited and are most common in fair skin and those with reddish hair. In Summer freckles are more noticeable on the surface of the skin than during the winter months.
Treatments for Sunspots
SmartSkin CO2 Fraxel laser treats more permanently and reduces deep wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and advanced photo-aging. The micro-ablative procedure vaporizes the skin and heats the deep dermis, promoting collagen and elastin formation. As a result, skin elasticity and thickness increase. At the same time, the procedure removes discoloration and wrinkles and reveals brighter and clearer skin.
SmartSkin CO2 Fraxel Laser: Better Results, Less Downtime
SmartSkin provides cost-effective skin resurfacing treatments. As a result, you get a more even tone, smoother texture, and markedly reduced wrinkles. If you have experienced a now-outdated CO2 procedure, rejoice! So you can get dramatic results without the long downtime and recovery period. In addition, you’ll see long-term improvement in skin elasticity, clarity, and texture. It’s like getting three laser treatments in one!
Dramatically reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce hyperpigmentation (brown spots or age spots)
- Skin is tighter and more refined
Platelet Rich Plasma is your very own liquid gold when combined with a CO2 Fraxel laser! Platelet-rich plasma uses your blood platelets for skin resurfacing.
It restores hair growth, rejuvenates your skin, and repairs scars and stretch marks. Using about two teaspoons of your blood, Dr. Chaitali Nangrani isolates platelets and prepares the site for microneedling.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin layers for healthier skin. In response, your skin plumps and thickens. As a result, it reduces the appearance of scars, fine lines, and other skin texture changes. Because the CosmoPen creates “micro-channels,” specific topical solutions can penetrate the deeper layers of the skin for the best results.
Platelet-rich plasma takes advantage of your activated platelet growth factors. Using your cells stimulates stem cell production and mobilizes your collagen-producing cells. It also triggers the development of collagen, fatty tissue, and new blood vessels. Using it for skin rejuvenation gives your skin the best conditions for resurfacing and regeneration.
Prevention of Sunspots
- Wear sunscreen
- Wear makeup with sunscreen- we offer Alastin skin care products
- Reapply if you are in direct sunlight for longer periods
