Fall Is the Time to Treat Pigmentation!

Posted on August 10, 2016 by: Dr. Rocheford

Fall is here – and that means you’re probably looking back on summer memories with a fond smile.  Maybe you spent some time with the family down by the lake, or you went on a road trip with some friends to a town you’ve never been.  Whatever activities you engaged in, it’s likely you spent plenty of time in the sun…

And that’s why now has never been a better time to treat all the resulting pigmentation!

Why Brown Spots Happen

Wondering why you tend to see more brown spots as you approach the fall months?

That’s because your skin is starting to show the effects of spending too much time without sunscreen outdoors.  The sun’s harmful UV rays can damage skin, which results in discoloration and uneven skin tone.  Even if you were diligent about applying sunscreen, sweat and water can diminish the effectiveness of SPF.  That means your skin may have been accidentally exposed to the sun’s harmful rays, resulting in the kind of brown spots and uneven skin tone that make you look older than your time.

How to Get Rid of Brown Spots

Don’t let your brown spots prematurely age you.  At Rocheford Plastic Surgery in Woodbury, MN – also serving the greater St. Paul/Minneapolis metro areas – board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Heather Rocheford uses the new Lumecca broad-spectrum intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment to help eliminate the appearance of pesky freckles and brown spots on facial skin.

Lumecca works by delivering a series of pulsed lights to the facial skin, which directly targets discolorations.  Once the brown spots absorb this light, they slowly fade away due to increased cellular turnover.  The end result is a clear and glowing complexion that’s worthy of any season!

Results can be seen in as little as seven to ten days, as this is the amount of time it takes brown spots to be sloughed off skin.  Additionally, skin cannot be tan during this procedure, which is why it’s a great treatment to go through during the fall and winter.
