Brown Spot Treatment

Brown spots are a common reason to visit GK Dermatology (South Shore MA brown spot treatment specialists). Large spots often represent a cosmetic nuisance. They can be due to a number of factors such as pregnancy, sun-damage, and genetic predisposition. Depending on the type of spots that a person has, different treatment modalities are recommended.

Brown Spot Treatment Options

Lasers and light treatments, such as intense pulsed light (IPL), are a popular treatment for brown spots. They have revolutionized the treatment of brown spots in the majority of cases. Most spots improve significantly or resolve entirely with these modalities. It is important to note that brown spots often become darker immediately after laser or light treatment, for a period of approximately seven to ten days. The treated areas will also appear flaky and have a light, peppered appearance. After treatment, you may return to work the same day. Concealer can be used to cover the treated area, if desired. A medical grade sunscreen should be applied every day to prevent recurrence of brown spots. Brown spots can clear after a single treatment or after several treatments.
