UV rays are responsible for a large portion of the damage done to skin that is labeled “aging.” One of the signs of aging skin that is caused by UV rays are sunspots, also called age, liver or brown spots. These small brown spots on the skin are signs of UV damage that appear on the face, hands, chest and other frequently exposed areas. Dr. Erez Dayan at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute offers sunspots treatment as part of our medical spa services in Reno/Tahoe, NV.
Brown spots, or sunspots, are a common, benign skin condition that occurs with age. Individuals who are 40 years of age or older are the most prone to sun or age spots, but they can appear in younger men and women. Your skin type and amount of UV ray exposure can impact the damage done to the skin. Although brown spots are not harmful, they can affect the cosmetic appearance of the skin, resulting in an uneven skin tone and an aged appearance to the skin.

If you have brown spots on your hands, face, arms or chest you want to be removed, there are effective treatment options. Laser skin treatments can be a quick and painless option to target these pigmented skin cells. The light energy destroys the darker cells, and they flake away in the days or weeks following treatment. Other med spa treatments that can fade or minimize sunspots include chemical peels.
