Brown Spot Removal For Aging Skin w/ IPL - Fleming Island 

Procedure Details

The patient's main concern was the hyperpigmentation (brown spots commonly referred to as age spots) and to even her skin tone. At her first appointment we performed a Visia Skin Analysis to help determine the extent of UV sun damage (brown spots), broken capillaries, and wrinkles. Upon review of the Visia results, she agreed to undergo a treatment series of three IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) using the Limelight IPL device by Cutera. She also had one "spot" PicoGenesis treatment with the Enlighten Laser to correct a few of the more stubborn brown spots. She is very pleased with her results. The hyperpigmentation is about almost completely cleared. To maintain the results, she is now following a maintenance program of IPL treatments every 4-6 months to remove any residual brown spots that may surface over time. She is also having HydraFacials monthly which provides superb exfoliation. HydraFacial is a non-laser skin resurfacing device that reduces superficial pigmentation, hydrates mature skin and improves skin texture, tone and pore size. She is also using a medical grade hydroquinone nightly to inhibit melanin production (to keep brown spots from occurring in the future). With this treatment program, she will continue to have glowing, healthy, youthful looking skin that is long lasting.

IPL PicoGenesis Fleming Island

Both IPL and PicoGenesis treatments are wonderful because they are highly effective in reducing sun spots, UV damage, brown spots, hyperpigmentation and redness.  There is little to no downtime which makes these treatments ideal for busy patients.  These treatments also help to even the skin tone.  Adhering to an individualized treatment plan of combined modalities often results in patients no longer having to wear makeup or at least far less makeup.   

Most all patients require a minimum of 3-5 IPL treatments every 4-6 weeks to achieve the glowing, youthful appearance they are seeking.
