Dark Spots Removal
Dark Spots Removal
Dark spot treatments remove excess pigment safely to reveal clearer, younger-looking skin. Unlike superficial skin care products, dark spot removal treatments use powerful energy to reach deep below the surface of the skin and blast away age spots. The energy breaks up the dark spots resulting in sloughing off of the skin to reveal your new beautiful skin.
Even if you try to stay out of the sun, it is impossible to completely avoid its damaging UV rays. As a result, you can look older as dark spots and freckles appear on your face, chest, and arms.

How Should You Prepare for Treatment?
Avoid the sun or indoor tanning salons for 4-6 weeks before your treatment. If you will be in the sun, use sunblock with 50 SPF on your face. Do not use self-tanning products. If you come in with a tan or sunburn, for safety reasons, you will need to come back in for your treatment at a later time. Do not apply any products to your face. This includes makeup, lotion, and toner. Discontinue the use of any topical prescription medications 7 days before treatment. You cannot have this treatment done if you are on a photosensitizing medication. If you have a history of cold sores you must take antiviral medication 3 days prior to your appointment. If you had botox you must wait 4 weeks to be treated, if you recently had filler, you must wait 6 weeks.
How is Procedure Performed?
- In preparation, your face will be thoroughly cleaned
- Your skin will be numbed with local anesthetics.
- A pen like device emitting plasma energy that is absorbed by the dark skin cells killing off the cell
- Treatment time will last approximately 30 minutes
- After treatment is completed, your technician will apply specialized dressing to protect the treated tissues.
What Will Recovery Involve?
After the treatment your skin will feel slightly tight and will feel as if you have a mild sunburn, this will subside in a few hours. Cooling agents will be applied to your face for comfort. The dark spot will be slightly red, and any dark spots treated will be darkened. During your first week of recovery, your dark spot will appear as dark brown speckles, and then will start to flake off. In two to three weeks, you’ll notice your dark spot has significantly faded or has completely disappeared.
For 48 hours post-treatment, you must refrain from adding “extra” heat from other sources which can cause a burn. This additional heat can come from the sun, working out, hot showers, saunas, and hot tubs. Do not work out, participate in strenuous activity, use a hot tub, or use a sauna during this period. You may use make-up after 24 hours post-treatment as well as a moisturizer. Avoid going in the sun for one week after treatment, if you will be in the sun, use a sunblock with 50 SPF
How Long Will the Results Last?
Results will be noticeable immediately after treatment, but the full results may not be apparent for up to six months as the skin continues to heal itself. Depending on your skin type and dark spot size, this will determine how many treatments will be needed. Most people are able to resume their regular activities immediately following treatment.
