Spot Removal: No Pain, A Lot of Gain

Posted in Acne Scars by . | Leave a Comment
Acne sure has a way of leaving a lasting impression. Even way after the actual blemish is long gone, it can take weeks and sometimes months or years for that visible brown or red spot left in its place to go away. That spot has a name, it's called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This refers to the discoloration left on the skin after an inflammatory wound has occurred on the skin. The mark is the result of excess melanin production. Luckily post-inflammatory hyerpigmentation is not a true acne scar that leaves a depressed mark on the skin. In fact, most red or brown spots can be covered up with a good makeup concealer. However, there are some great in-office procedures and prescription skin care products that will clear up that spot much quicker than waiting for time to heal all wounds.

Laser Genesis to Correct Dark Spots

For those looking for an entry level laser treatment, it doesn't get any better than Laser Genesis. During a Laser Genesis treatment, the skin is gently heated with a 1064nm short-pulsed laser, this does not hurt and in fact can feel relaxing. Laser Genesis is amazing at treating any redness on the skin associated with post-inflammatory hyperigmentation or even rosacea. While results can be seen with one treatment, it's ideal to get a series of five treatments for the best results. Laser Genesis also improves the overall texture and tone of the skin.

Topical Dark Spot Correcting Treatments

A topical skin lightening agent that really does work is hydroquinone. We recommend patients use it to get their dark spots reduced and then switch over to a non-hydroquinone product, such as Clear Clinic Laboratories Enlighten Me. Another route to try is with a retinoid product, which accelerates skin cell turnover and helps fight acne as well as clears those brown and red spots.
