Brown Spot Removal

It had been about 8 years that my daughter was last seen by Dr Bock. We had to return to Dr Bock's office for a new issue that my daughter is having. I was pleasantly surprised by Dr Bock's good sense of humor and his friendly staff. I appreciate Dr Bock taking his time to explain my daughter diagnosis to me and being very professional, and "funny" throughout the visit. Thank you!

Almost all of us are born with clear, youthful looking skin. As we age, we tend to get brown discolorations, which make our skin look muddy and lose its youthful shine. These discolorations make us look older and less healthy. We now have good treatments for almost all of these discolorations and we can make you look significantly more youthful.

Sun exposure over the years is the most common cause of discolorations and muddy looking skin. Good sun protection, with clothing, shade, and sunscreen is essential to keeping your skin looking young.

Actinic keratosis are rough, tan to brown pre-cancers resulting from sun exposure. We can now treat these well with the Blu U light plus Levulan, which is usually covered by insurance. At times topical medications such as Retin A, Retinol or 5 Fluorouracil can also be used. These growths will also respond to the microlaserpeel or Sciton laser resurfacing. A series of microdermabrasions will also help.

Freckling and larger irregular brown spots called lentigines are also signs of sun damage and aging. These respond to treatment with the BroadBand Light system, the microlaserpeel, and Sciton laser resurfacing. Sometimes the BroadBand Light system and the microlaserpeel are performed on the same day, frequently producing very impressive results.

Seborrheic keratosis, dark rough brown growths, more common in darker skinned individuals, respond well to treatment with the KTP laser. These spots are also the result of sun exposure, but they are not pre-cancers.

Finally, melasma, also known as the mask of pregnancy, is an extremely common condition that has been very frustrating to treat. It is made worse by hormones and is more common in women, particularly those with dark skin. In this condition, the pigment is beneath the surface of the skin. For years we have treated it with topicals with mixed results, but we now have a rapid and effective treatment combining a microdermabrasion with the MedLite Q-Switch YAG laser. This usually produces very significant improvement in one to four treatments.
