Dark Spots

Dark Spots In Columbia Treatments

Dark spots are impossible to get rid of with over-the-counter products, and you certainly can’t cover them with any kind of concealer. Take a look at this quick guide on dark spots, including their cause and what treatments you can use to beautify your skin again.

What Causes Dark Spots on the Skin, and What exactly Are They?

Dark spots occur for several reasons. For instance, skin conditions like melasma, hyperpigmentation, and hypopigmentation. Acne and acne scarring, hormones, and sun damage are also causes of dark spots. They can be worse for people with darker skin tones, and more and more show up as you age.

What Treatments Help Eliminate Dark Spots Such as Melasma?

There are many ways to treat dark spots, but chemical peels are a dermatologist’s go-to treatment. Peels resurface your skin in order to stimulate collagen production, which turns on your body’s healing response and diminishes the appearance of dark spots. Aerolase laser treatment is also an incredible way to treat dark spots, because it works on a cellular level to boost collagen production in the treated area. 

Do Chemical Peels Hurt? What Does Aerolase Feel Like?

There is a little discomfort with chemical peels, and it varies with what level you’re being treated with. However, your provider is there with a soothing solution and a cold compress to help with any pain you might feel during treatment. 

Aerolase is virtually painless, but you may feel a little tenderness after treatment. Both treatments are done in the office and require little to no downtime.

When Will I See Results From Aerolase and Chemical Peels?

With a chemical peel, you see results about 14 days after treatment. You notice smoother, brighter skin with a more even skin tone. 

Aerolase results take a little while longer to reach their optimum level, and you need about four sessions. However, once your Aerolase sessions are over, you only need to come in every once and a while for a touch-up.
