Unfortunately, skin spots are an unfortunate part of the aging process. These spots, which are also referred to as liver spots, are usually harmless and can be diminished in appearance or removed completely with professional medical treatment.
Sunspots can develop anytime, although they become increasingly common for both men and women over the age of fifty. And the spots can appear anywhere; the back, neck, face, shoulders, and neck are all likely areas. The spots appear when there is too much melanin, which is a pigment in the upper area of the skin, and the abundance of melanin clumps and forms the spots.
Thankfully there is treatment for sun spots. The treatment is safe and approved by the FDA. It’s called broadband light treatment, and it uses a light therapy to diminish the appearance of or completely eliminate spots entirely. The therapy is delivered as a course of treatments, usually four treatments spread out over a three- to four-week span. And when the treatments are complete, the results should continue to last for years.
When a medical professional at Central Wellness administers the treatment, they will first protect the patient’s eyes from the treatment’s bright light, and then prepare the skin around the treatment area with a cool gel. The treatment will deliver the light energy into the targeted area, and the heat from the treatment will stimulate the skin’s cells to develop new collagen. The affect is that the skin’s color at the treatment site will change, and the changes should better blend in with the surrounding skin.
If you have any questions about how broadband light therapy can help you achieve more youthful-looking, spot-free skin, then call Central Wellness today, and schedule a complimentary consultation.
