Using IPL treatment for aging spots in Frederick area patients
The importance of sun protection is continually stressed by dermatologists in and around the Frederick area, including Dr. Ron Prussick. At Washington Dermatology Center, we want our patients to take the steps necessary to ensure they are protecting their skin and therefore slowing the signs of aging and the development of problems such as age spots and sun spots. As patients age, they may notice this sun damage on their skin and want to find ways to reduce or eliminate it. This is when our team of professionals may suggest IPL treatment for aging spots.
Aging spots, sun spots, liver spots, whatever you want to call them, are often a result of sun-damaged skin. By using IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment, patients can reduce their appearance and improve the texture and tone of their skin. Many patients find that IPL treatment can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Dr. Ron Prussick and his team at Washington Dermatology Center can help patients decide if IPL treatment is right for them.
Most people are appropriate candidates for IPL treatment. IPL treatment uses pulsed light to target the deep layers of the skin and break down the pigmentation that is causing the discoloration. It can also be combined with special skin care routines, including the use of bleaching products to reduce the appearance from the outer layers.
IPL treatment can make a dramatic difference and it can be used on any part of the face or body. Patients may also find other aesthetic services such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and photodynamic therapy help in reversing sun damage and removing dark spots and imperfections from the skin.
If you reside in or around the area of Frederick and want to speak with a dedicated skin professional that can assist with age spots, contact the team at Washington Dermatology Center to book an appointment with Dr. Ron Prussick. He can provide patients with a skin care routine that works for them, while also educating them on sun protection and ways to enhance the skin and body with cosmetic and medical solutions.
