Laser Treatment for Hyperpigmentation and Sunspots in Lynnwood

Very few people are blessed enough to have skin without any blemishes or discoloration. Most of us have a few freckles, maybe some sunspots, liver spots, solar lentigines, age spots, or other areas of pigmentation. These discolored areas may be on the face, hands, shoulders, arms, back, chest, or other areas of the body. While not harmful, you may be sensitive about them and want them to go away as soon as possible. One way to deal with these spots is through laser treatment for hyperpigmentation and sunspots in Lynnwood.

Small or large areas of hyperpigmentation can be removed with laser light therapy, as can some birthmarks. Depending on the size of the discoloration and the area being treated, laser treatment may take from one to six sessions for complete removal. Most appointments last from 20-30 minutes.

After laser removal, the hyperpigmentation will not usually return. However, sometimes new spots may develop in the same location. Birthmarks and spots not a result of sun damage can occasionally return over time.

The best way to keep from getting sunspots is to stay out of the sun or wear 30 SPF or higher sunscreen when outdoors.

At your initial consultation, a professional will look at your skin and examine areas of discoloration. If the spots are benign, laser treatment can be initiated. Spots that could be cancerous will not be addressed, and you will be referred to a dermatologist.
