Restore your smooth, youthful skin tone with Brown Spot & Pigment Removal

As we age, it’s common to see brown spots popping up where they don’t belong. These spots are typically caused by too much melanin concentrated in one area of the skin. They come in many different forms, including freckles, age spots, moles, melasma, and actinic keratoses.

Treatment Benefits

How does Brown Spot & Pigment Removal work?

Since the types of brown spots vary widely, you may want to have your doctor or a Pacific Derm dermatologist take a look first. Sometimes, harmless looking spots or freckles can be the sign of a more serious problem. But don’t worry–these types of conditions are rare.

For some brown spot removal treatments, you may experience redness, swelling or peeling. Results are typically seen within the first 2 visits, and most procedures are quick.

Most treatments are quick and non-invasive. Once we know the nature of your spots, we can look at different options for pigmentation removal. Your condition and skin type will dictate the best solution.
