Ask Cheryl | Brown Spots on Cheek, Forehead

Q. I have a brown age spot on my cheek and two smaller ones on my forehead that I didn’t use to have. They make me look old, how do I safely get rid of them?

A. Brown spots are a result of cumulative sun exposure. They develop deep in the skin over the years and then pop out as we age. These brown sunspots, age spots, and freckles develop on the parts of our body that are prone to sun exposure. Luckily these unsightly spots can be lightened or eliminated with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments.

IPL, sometimes referred to as photo-facial, is a safe, FDA-approved method of utilizing flashes of light energy to break up the melanin that forms brown spots. The melanin breaks apart and is absorbed by your body, eliminating the brown spots. The procedure is quick and there is no downtime. The procedure can also clear up brown spots on the chest and hands.
