Our practice offers laser dark spot removal to even out your skin tone and remove the brown patches from your skin. Dark spots are also known as sunspots, and usually appear after you have spent time in the sun. Skintology Medical Spa uses an advanced laser to erase your dark spots by re-energizing the darker-pigmented areas of your skin. Call us today at (212) 832-2225 to make your appointment and learn more about dark spot removal in New York, New York.

Your dark spot removal session will last 10 to 15 minutes in total. Our doctors will begin by applying a cooling gel to your skin, after which a series of pulses from the laser will be directed into your skin.

Prior to receiving a dark spot removal treatment, you should:

  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning for several days
  • Do not take antibiotics or Accutane for at least three weeks before your session
  • Do not apply makeup or lotion on the area the day of treatment

After your session you skin may appear slightly red in the treated area. Keep the area clean, and be sure to use sunblock with a minimum of 30 SPF daily.

FAQs

What causes dark or pigmented lesions on the skin?

Pigmented lesions, birthmarks, brown spots, or dark spots are created from an excessive concentration of melanin in the skin. Melanin is what gives skin color. While some types of melanin concentrations are present at birth, most will occur with age or from excessive sun exposure.

Are the results of dark spot removal permanent?

Yes. Most dark spots will not return if removed. However, sun exposure may cause new dark spots to grow.

Can all areas of the body be treated?

All areas of the body can be safely and effectively treated. The most common treatment areas include the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands.

When will I see results?

Most patients see results after about four weeks, but in some cases it may take up to eight weeks for the full result to become apparent.
