Do you have brown age spots on your skin? The dark pigmented areas on your face, upper back, arms, hands, and shoulders are known by several names such as age spots, sun spots, or liver spots. The medical term for these spots is solar lentigines. These sun spots are most often in the form small patches that are noticeably darker than the overall tone of the skin. Other skin imperfections also present in the office, such as birthmarks and small red vascular dots known as cherry angiomas.

Solar lentigines, or sun spots are caused by prolonged and direct exposure to the sun. When your skin is exposed to the sun, it releases a brownish pigment called melanin. The purpose of this pigment is to protect the deeper layers of the skin from the sun. When large amounts of this pigment are released, over time this can cause the skin to become darker in certain spots or patches. These spots can occur on the face, arms, shoulders, and any skin that receives sun exposure. Sun spots can make the skin lose its glow and can make you look older than you are…making sun spot removal all the more desirable. Specifically, sun spot removal treatment is ideal when you have prominent spots on your face or other highly visible areas. Small vascular red spots and birthmarks can also be minimized or removed with treatments at Midwest Vein Care.
The best way to prevent sun spots is to lessen your exposure to the sun. If you cannot avoid it, you should use an appropriately strong sunscreen lotion on your skin prior to sun exposure. However, once sun spots have already formed on your skin, they will be permanent and increase with time. At the time that these skin imperfections become significant and cosmetically unpleasant, they can be lessened or removed with a cosmetic medical procedure at Midwest Vein Care. Depending on the type and extent of the presenting lesions and skin type, we may advise chemical product treatment, intense pulsed light, CO2 laser resurfacing or pigmented lesion laser spot treatment. Our cosmetic skincare specialists are among the best experts in sun spot removal, which can be performed with the use of specialty lasers.

The sun spot and pigmented lesion removal process involves use of specific wavelength laser beams directed at the damaged portion of the skin. At Midwest Vein Care, we use the latest laser sun spot removal technology for treating our clients, which is provided by our licensed and experienced professionals. The process used to laser or intense pulsed light treat a pigmented lesion is known as selective photothermal lysis. It involves the transcutaneous absorbtion of specific wavelengths of light in the targeted unwanted lesion. The absorbtion of light in the lesion will rapidly raise the temperature of the unwanted lesion, fragmenting the melanin or sealing a vessel closed… then the body will naturally dissolve and re-absorb the tissue. These treatments are done with minimal discomfort and little or no down time. The experience and the expertise we have in offering laser skin treatments are unmatched in the region. When you choose us for sun spot removal or any other laser skin treatment, you can rest assured that you are getting the best treatment available in the St. Louis area.
