How to prevent brown spots on the skin

Over the years, our skin changes dramatically. The most common concern is that of aging, which results in the formation of skin laxity and fine lines and wrinkles. However, patients might also notice the development of brown spots. These brown spots, sometimes referred to as “age spots” or “sun spots,” form anywhere on the body and can impact both men and women. When they develop on the face and are patients are unable to conceal them with cosmetics, they are often bothersome to individuals and make them feel self-conscious about their appearance. Elena Ginsberg and her dedicated staff at Primary Aesthetic Skin Care in Bedford, NY can help patients with a proper diagnosis of their skin concern and offer effective treatment options.

What causes brown spots?

Patients who develop brown spots often have questions for our providers about what caused them to develop. In most cases, brown spots are caused by exposure to the sun’s UV rays over the course of many years. Without proper protection of the skin from the elements, these spots of hyperpigmentation can form and may even be an indicator of a higher risk of skin cancer.

What can be done to eliminate brown spots?

Just as other hyperpigmentation concerns are addressed, our team will recommend certain therapies such as microdermabrasion, laser treatments, and light therapies such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). These treatments work because they break down extra pigmentation to fade away these brown spots and smooth the skin’s overall texture and tone. At the same time, these treatments can address fine lines and wrinkles, providing many benefits to the individual who is considering anti-aging treatment that do not require surgical intervention.
