Freckles can be cute, but large brown spots…not so much. If you are starting to notice mysterious dark spots on your skin, more than likely there’s no reason to worry at all. What you are seeing are sunspots or liver spots (a.k.a. hyperpigmentation) – most often found on sun exposed skin…your face, chest, hands, arms and legs. These spots can occur at any age and with all skin types. The good news is that these stubborn dark spots can be safely and effectively removed with med spa treatments and medical grade products.

What Causes Brown Spots?
When the skin is injured, the body’s natural response is to heal this injury with a melanin boost. However, this can result in an overproduction of melanin, causing hyperpigmentation or darkening of the skin in the form of spots or patches. Most often, this condition is caused by the following factors:
- Overexposure to the sun
- Hormone imbalance
- Certain medications
- Vitamin deficiencies
- Lack of sleep
How Can I Remove Dark Spots?
Chemical Peels: Peels are a chemical form of exfoliation that slough off the top layer of dead skin over the course of a few days. At Skin NV, we offer several types of peels, and based on our clients’ skin types, determine which peel is best for their individual needs. Most of our peels are designed to treat hyperpigmentation and dull complexion – resulting in a clear, even skin tone. Learn more about chemical peels at Skin NV.
Fraxel: Fraxel laser can be used for correcting pigmentation caused from sun damage – a skin condition known as melasma. It is also FDA approved for the treatment of Actinic Keratosis and can be used to treat acne scarring and tighten fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Learn more about Fraxel at Skin NV.
Medical Grade Products: It’s not just hype. There’s a reason to spend a little more on medical grade products than you would on over-the-counter products. The active ingredients found in medical grade products are much more potent than over-the-counter products and are designed to penetrate deeper into the skin, resulting is better results.
