Over the years, most people see brownish spots on their skin called dark spots or age spots. These pigmented lesions usually occur in areas of the body that are most exposed to the sun, particularly the face, cleavage, and hands.
—How are dark spots treated?
Several treatments are available to reduce dark spots, such as the intense pulsed light (IPL) technique, which uses the thermal energy of light to reduce dark spots. For optimal results, it is recommended to follow a course of four treatments. It should be noted that immediately after the treatment, the spots may temporarily take on a darker shade. This treatment can be combined with a gentle chemical peel to improve skin texture and even out skin tone, thereby optimizing the gradual erasure of the dark spots.
—Is there an alternative to IPL treatment?
Another option available to treat dark spots is the erbium laser. This very high-precision, state-of-the-art device emits a beam of light to ablate the epidermis in thin layers. This technique can be used on the entire face or—more often—on the spots in a targeted manner. One treatment is usually sufficient, sometimes with the addition of a supportive treatment. Following the erbium laser procedure, the skin is red and swollen for three to five days and requires basic care, which will be explained to you. This redness gradually fades over the following weeks. Make sure to protect the skin properly with a quality sunscreen with SPF 60 or above.
