Tattoos are not the only unwanted marks you may have on your skin. The passage of time leaves its mark with signs of sun damage, age spots, freckles, birthmarks, and melasma. These dark spots are not harmful, but can detract from your appearance and can make you look years older.
How it works
After your consultation with Dr. Rhee, your treatment will begin. The laser passes harmlessly through the skin, targeting the melanin that causes these unwanted marks. The light is transferred into energy that destroys these cells, restoring your skin to a natural, even tone. Most patients experience only minimal discomfort, and liken the sensation to the snap of a rubber band. If you find it difficult to tolerate, numbing creams or other anesthetic options are available.
The procedure is completed within a few minutes, and can be repeated as often as every two weeks. Some patients see improvement after just one treatment, and full results are visible after only three or four sessions.
This procedure is non-ablative and non-invasive, leaving your skin intact. There is no downtime. After being treated by Dr. Rhee, you can go back to your regular routine without any problem, so long as you protect yourself from skin damage.
Once the laser destroys the melanin responsible for the lesions, it does not return. So long as you protect your skin from the ultraviolet light of the sun, you should enjoy an even skin tone for years to come.
