Your skin can develop dark spots as a result of age, hormones, the sun, and scarring. Even if these spots are not harmful to your health, they can still mar your appearance.
Lucky for you, there are many ways to remove those pesky dark spots, or hyperpigmentation, that age you. Read on to learn about dark spot removal treatments in Chevy Chase.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
This non-invasive laser treatment can be used anywhere on the body, and it can treat a number of skin issues including hyperpigmentation. The laser heats the pigment in the skin and destroys it. The result is a more even skin tone, and it can even prevent the formation of dark spots.
Hybrid Fractionated Laser
The hybrid fractionated laser is great for removing dark spots as well as large pores, acne scars, and fine lines. This treatment also stimulates collagen production, which helps add volume to the treatment area.
Microdermabrasion involves the use of a device to exfoliate the top layer of the skin. This yields a variety of benefits, including the stimulation of collagen, the reduction in the appearance of scars, and the reduction of dark spots.
A chemical peel yields a very similar result to microdermabrasion. There are many different types of chemical peels that you can get depending on your needs, which may contain alpha hydroxy acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid, or glycolic acid.
