Age & Sun Spot Removal
Age and sun spots can appear any where on the body as the result of exposure to the sun and UV rays over time. Our skin absorbs sunlight which activates the melanin in your skin causing brown spots or freckles. At Maine Laser and Aesthetics, we treat Age and Sun Spots with the Alex Trivantage Laser as well as medical grade skin care products.
HOW DOES THE LASER WORK?
The Alex TriVantage laser produces a powerful burst of light that destroys the excess melanin or pigmented lesion with out damage to the surrounding skin tissue. Treatments are quick with discomfort lasting only a few minutes.
how do skin care products help treat this?
Maine Laser and Aesthetics stocks prescription strength medical grade skin care products containing Hydroquinone and/or Retinol, which can lighten spots, and is the best treatment for melasma.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
Some spots can be can show great improvement with one session, however, most can require multiple treatments done 6-8 weeks apart for complete removal.
CAN SPOTS COME BACK?
New spots and the reappearance of spots may occur with sun exposure. We recommend always wearing sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher as well as keeping treated areas covers during extended sun exposure.
