Fraxel® for Treatment of Brown Spots, Pigmentation, and Freckles

Brown spots, pigmentation, and freckles occur on the face, neck, chest, back, arms, and legs. They occur in areas of sun exposure and the more sun exposure one has had over the years, the more brown spots and sun damage that will develop over time. These brown spots signify sun damage and are mainly of cosmetic concern; however, people who have had extensive sun exposure must monitor their skin for skin cancers that may develop. These brown spots are a sign of premature aging of the skin and make people appear older than they are. Brown spots on the backs of hands are particularly aging for many people. In a recent study, people who had brown spots on their faces were judged to be 10 to 20 years older than their actual age.

Since we know that brown spots are signs of sun damage, it is very important to use sun protection. Protecting your skin from the sun will help prevent more brown spots and further sun damage. Teenagers who frequent tanning salons can start to develop brown spots before they reach their 20’s, so it is important to avoid these salons.

Sunscreen, protective clothing, and sunglasses help prevent further sun damage. Exposure time in the sun should be limited and seek shade when outdoors. Try to avoid outdoor activities between 10 am and 3 pm, when the ultraviolet rays are strongest. See a dermatologist yearly for a skin examination to check for any abnormal moles or skin cancer.

Creams containing tretinoin, alphahydroxy acids, and antioxidants can help prevent further brown spots and sun damage. They also help reverse sun damage and improve the appearance of brown spots.

Cosmetic treatments that help fade brown spots and reverse sun damage include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, intense pulsed light, Levulan® photodynamic therapy with Blu-U light, and Fraxel® laser treatments.
