Hyperpigmentation, also known as dark spots, is commonly caused by overexposure to the sun, hormonal changes and scars. Dark spots on the skin can make many patients self-conscious and not enjoy their skin like when they were younger. The Sciton broadband light system, available at Medical Aesthetics of North Dallas, is a safe and effective system for the removal of dark spots on the face. Patients living in the greater Dallas, Plano and Frisco, Texas communities can kiss those dark spots goodbye thanks to the Sciton BBL technology.

What Causes Dark Spots on the Face?

Dark spots that appear on the face make many patients feel older than they really are. Sun damage, hormonal changes and scars are the top causes of troublesome dark spots.

Dark spots on the face are usually caused by an excess of melanin. Excessive melanin occurs when the pigment gathers in an area of damaged skin. When too much melanin is produced in one area, healthy skin cells cannot regenerate as quickly. This leads to the formation of dark spots.

Even though dark spots are harmless, they can be unattractive in a patient’s eyes. Certain dark spots are difficult to cover with makeup. In these cases, patients can depend on the Sciton broadband light technology for removal of dark spots on the face.

How Does Sciton Broadband Light Provide Removal of Dark Spots on the Face?

Sciton broadband light technology, commonly used for the removal of dark spots on the face, delivers photothermal energy that heats the upper layers of the skin. The area of skin targeted absorbs the light, causing a stimulation of new collagen. Collagen is an important building block for healthy looking skin.

A highly trained member of the Medical Aesthetics of North Dallas team will apply the Sciton broadband light hand piece to the dark spot and deliver precise pulses of photothermal energy to the treatment area, providing removal of dark spots on the face. The treatment is extremely gentle, non-invasive and requires minimal downtime and recovery time. Some patients may experience a light stinging sensation, but it is tolerable and pain medication is not necessary.

Patients can expect approximately 4-6 Sciton broadband light sessions with treatments spaced about 3 weeks apart. We encourage all patients to wear sunscreen for several weeks after treatment to help protect the skin while it heals.

After the skin is fully healed and treatments are completed, dark spots will be diminished and the skin will have a more even and youthful glow.
