Sun Spot Removal
Men and women who are bothered by sun spots, brown spots, or other pigmentation problems can benefit from non-invasive laser treatments with the GentleMax Pro. Sun spot removal is a simple in-office procedure. Treatments are long-lasting and many patients only need one session to achieve an optimal outcome.
How It Works
Your skilled technician will use the GentleMax Pro laser handpiece to target the dark pigmentation (melanin) below the surface of the skin. The dual wavelength device gently emits powerful thermal energy to predetermined problem areas. Sun spot causing melanin is ruptured while surrounding tissue remains unharmed. Over time your body will naturally absorb and expel the dead cells leaving you blemish free.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Sun spot removal is safe and effective anywhere on the body. The most common treatment areas for both men and women include the face, neck, hands, and chest. GentleMax Pro laser treatments can be adjusted for any skin type or tone.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Results may vary based on your body’s natural self-healing process. In most cases, you can expect to see sun spots begin to fade within a few days. Optimal results can take several weeks. The GentleMax Pro laser stimulates beneficial collagen production allowing you to retain a youthful appearance longer than traditional lasers.
Mild to moderate pigmentation problems can become barely noticeable with just one treatment. It can take up to 3 GentleMax Pro treatments to address more severe cosmetic concerns.
What is the Downtime?
While there is no discomfort expected after the treatment is finished, the sunspots are expected to get significantly darker and stay darker for approximately 3-5 days before that skin sloughs and lighter skin is revealed. Application of mineral-based makeup to conceal the treatment area is perfectly safe in the meantime.
Your skin may be ultra-sensitive to sun exposure after your sun spot removal treatment. Patients will be asked to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen (minimum 50 SPF) daily for at least several weeks. Continued sun protection can prolong the outcome of your procedure.
