Do you have dark spots on your skin that you’re looking to get rid of? This could have been the result of a sunburn, acne, rash or other skin problem. They are pretty common, especially for women or people who spend a lot of time in the sun. Simple skin treatments you buy from your local store or trying to prevent them from darkening further can only go so far before you want to be rid of them once and for all.

With a professional consultation, you can find the treatment you need to be rid of the hyperpigmentation on your skin and get the look you want. Some of these include:

1. Laser Treatment: One of the main dark spot treatments you can find at Body Sculpting MedSpa is our laser treatment. Cutera Xeo, an advanced laser technology, is used to erase and re-energize the darker-pigmented areas of the skin, lasting a short time of 10-15 minutes. This can be customized specifically for your skin type and offers a wide variety of possibilities for treatment.

2. Chemical Peel: VI chemical peels help revive and rebuild your skin, working to slow down the aging process by removing the very top layer of your skin. This helps the healing process begin. The VI peel can even help wrinkled skin and works for multiple skin types. Chemical peels are also very beneficial for clients with acne scarring and indentation to the skin as a result of scar tissue in the epidermis which has not been fit to heal properly. It acts as a collagen stimulant to help rebuild that tissue.

3. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light): Also known as a “photofacial”, IPL therapy is a great tool to use to rejuvenate the skin through collagen stimulation. Light is used to help remove those dark spots through the use of intense wavelengths. This can be done in about 2-3 treatments depending on the skin type. This is also used with our Cutera Xeo tool, using intense pulsed light to treat age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, as well as hair removal! Other benefits of IPL include helping repair blood vessels, get rid of sunspots, acne, eliminate large pores, and rosacea (as well as other redness in the skin).

With any treatment, be sure to avoid tanning or prolonged periods of sun exposure right after treatment, and don’t take antibiotics or Accutane at least 3 weeks before your session. A fresh face without dark spots is within your grasp, and Body Sculpting Med Spa can provide any of the treatments described above and provide a consult to help determine which process is best for you.
