Quite often, we have people come in with disturbing age spots, and people really want to have an even tone skin. And we have some wonderful methods to treat this problem. Generally, what we do is, Forever Young treatment, using the broadband light. Using our special filter to target brown spots, we go over the entire area, and the spots become darker with the treatment. And after seven to 10 days, they flake off. They become granulated, and people are quite pleased with this treatment. They need to use sunscreen thereafter though, because they can reappear without the use of sunscreen.
Another treatment to do is a Obagi, and we have the Nu-Derm system that people use for 24 weeks. And this is amazing for attacking those brown areas. So we recommend that as well. Also, SkinPen is a good treatment for attacking age spots. With that, we are taking a microneedle and going over those specific areas, and new collagen is appearing to make the skin more clear and fresher looking.

BBL light energy absorbs targets such as fine, broken vessels, rosacea and brown spots that are caused by an overproduction of melanin.
An active tan from the sun or tanning beds is not appropriate with a BBL treatment.
It is recommended that a person does not have sun exposure in the area being treated for three weeks prior to the treatment with BBL. Self tanners must be faded from the skin for at least a week to 10 days before treatment.
The number of treatments vary from each individual. We often combine other procedures to to further enhance the outcome.
Your eyes will be covered by safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted area.
This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup and resume activities immediately.
