Brown spots (also known as “age spots” or “sunspots”) are an extremely common skin condition that we see at our medical spa. Although brown spots are seen in many individuals, they can often bother those who have them.

Although people aged 50 and above are more likely to develop brown spots, this issue can also develop in younger individuals. In fact, brown spots often occur during pregnancy. Brown spots can also be caused by liver problems, some medicines, and hormonal fluctuation. At Cara Plastic Surgery’s medical spa, we provide a variety of brown spot treatments that deliver excellent results.
What Exactly are Brown Spots?
Brown spots occur because of overactive pigment cells, developing when melanin becomes clumped together or is produced in high concentrations. These spots tend to show up on the face, shoulders, upper back, arms, and hands, and they are characterized by a flat, oval shape. They are dark in color — usually different shades of brown, tan, or black.
Our Treatment Methods for Brown Spots
An excellent way to target brown spots is with microneedling. By creating micro-injuries to the skin, this minimally invasive procedure summons the platelets in your blood to help trigger a renewal process that results in the production of brand-new skin cells that are healthier than the ones that they replace. We utilize the AGNES™ RF microneedling device and the Secret™ RF microneedling device, two cutting-edge pieces of technology to achieve significantly improved skin for you.
Laser skin resurfacing treatments help brown spots to eventually fade over the course of several weeks or months by removing damaged skin with controlled laser heat.
We use Laser Genesis to emit micro-pulses that reach deeply into the skin’s surface to trigger new collagen production.
