Brown Spots and Sun Spots | Signature Plastic Surgery and Dermatology

At Signature Plastic Surgery and Dermatology, we frequently get questions surrounding brown spots and sun spots and why they appear on the skin – and, more importantly, how to get rid of them. Let’s start by explaining what causes them to develop on your skin and how  Dr. Himansu Shah and Signature Dermatology team which includes our board-certified dermatologists and Physician Assistant can help you treat them.

The overproduction of melanin in your skin causes brown spots and sun spots. Melanin is the pigment that gives your skin, hair, and eyes their color. It comes from cells called melanocytes, which soak up sunlight like a sponge. Melanocytes will become saturated with melanin in the presence of ultraviolet exposure, and the more discoloration you’ll develop.

We use state-of-the-art equipment and technology to target hyperpigmentation while preserving the surrounding skin’s integrity and vitality. Explore our treatments below to learn more about your brown spot and sun spot targeting options.


Laser Skin Resurfacing

Achieve a more even, vibrant skin tone with laser skin resurfacing treatments that use controlled and precise beams of light to effectively break apart pigmentation visible at the surface of your skin. The UltraPulse CO2 laser can eliminate deep lines, fine lines, and dark age spots on the face, hands, and chest after only a single zero-downtime treatment.

IPL Broadband Light

IPL broadband light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can rejuvenate your skin using the latest light-based technology. With our IPL photofacial, you can restore a glowing, even complexion at any age. Using BroadBand light technology, our system gently heats the upper layer of skin, which damages dark spots and other signs of uneven pigmentation, restoring the skin to its natural, unblemished state.

Our MicroPen treatments use a highly effective technique to diminish fine lines, acne scars, and brown and sun spots to improve the skin’s overall appearance. Using your body’s natural ability to heal, the MicroPen device creates micro-injuries that break apart the melanin overproduction in the skin, revealing a much brighter, more even complexion.
