The effects of aging and exposure to the elements during everyday life can cause many aesthetic changes to our facial skin. Along with the increased appearance of lines and wrinkles and lost volume, your skin tone may also be affected and leave you with brown spots or sun-damaged skin.
While many treatments are available that safely and easily help restore lost volume beneath your skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, you may need to consider a treatment specific to the outer layer of facial skin to achieve a more even skin tone.
Although there are many ways the sun and general aging can change the appearance of the skin on the face, one of the most common is the appearance of brown spots caused by hyperpigmentation. Over time, the unwanted pigmentation in certain areas can lead to age spots or other brown or dark spots on your face.
Chemical peels and other dermal treatments can help maintain or improve your skin’s overall health, but these spots may remain. Along with being useful for many other cosmetic and aesthetic treatments, laser and light energy have been shown to effectively and safely reduce the appearance of, and sometimes remove, age spots or darker areas on your face.
Cynosure treatments involve using a variety of laser devices that allow Dr. Jensen to precisely target the areas of hyperpigmentation. The unwanted pigments absorb more light and laser energy than surrounding skin cells. This causes the unwanted pigment to break up and then be removed by your body’s normal processes.
There is no downtime after the treatment; the sessions are non-invasive and pain-free. These treatments are safe enough to be used nearly anywhere you have hyperpigmentation.
