What is dark spot removal?

Dark spots can appear on your skin for various reasons, but they’re an unwelcome hallmark of aging. The spots might develop because of excessive sun exposure, genetics, hormone changes, or certain skin conditions.

  • Even-toned skin
  • Reduced age spots
  • Elimination of other dark spots
  • Tattoo removal
  • Younger-looking skin

  • Reductions in skin imperfections

There’s no pain, surgery, needles, or downtime with dark spot removal at Favi MediSpa. Laser treatments produce dramatic anti-aging results and the benefit of clear skin.

Is dark spot removal right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for dark spot removal at Favia MediSpa, your specialist discusses your symptoms, desired outcome, and medical history. 

They examine your skin in areas containing dark spots and let you know what to expect during each procedure. Your provider then tailors a dark spot removal regimen that’s best for you.

What happens during dark spot removal?

During dark spot removal, your Favia MediSpa specialist often numbs the treatment area to ensure you avoid discomfort. They give you glasses to wear to protect your eyes from the light of the laser. 

Your provider uses a handheld device to emit laser energy into targeted areas of your skin that contain dark spots. The length of time your treatment lasts depends on the size of the treatment area.

Favia MediSpa also offers Alastin® Skincare products that diminish dark spots and protect your skin from future sun damage.

What should I expect after the procedure?

After laser treatment for dark spot removal, your skin may be red, tender, or swollen for a short time. Your specialist often recommends a series of laser treatments to ensure the best outcome. Use skincare products as directed by your Favia MediSpa provider, and always protect your skin from the sun.
