Laser treatment an excellent choice for reducing sun spots with the help of your Chicago dermatologist
The sun is welcoming. It calls to our urge for comfort and warmth. For a long time, there was a perception of beauty in gorgeously tanned skin that had been “kissed by the sun.” What we know today far surpasses what was known just a few decades ago. Because of extensive research, we now have a greater desire to cover up and protect our skin from the sun.
Multiple studies have been published showing the extensive damage that can occur when we do not apply a high SPF, broad-spectrum sunscreen and avoid the sun when possible. The long-term exposure to UV rays, even from tanning beds, leads to a marked reduction in the production of collagen, a substance vital to well-supported skin. At the same time, excessive UV exposure causes melanocytes, pigment-producing cells, to increase their production of melanin. The result of these simultaneous effects is the formation of dark spots, or sun spots.
Men and women seeking treatment for sun spots in Chicago can learn a great deal from Dr. Jonith Breadon. During the consultation visit, Dr. Breadon listens to concerns and takes a thorough medical history. Examining the skin, she can determine the type of damage to be addressed and the best modalities for optimal results.

One of the most effective ways to treat sun damage is with precise laser technology. Innovative devices, in the capable hands of a trained physician, can produce dramatic results in a short amount of time. For the treatment of sun spots, specific wavelengths of light are used. This light will elicit reactions in melanin, hemoglobin, and in collagen producing cells. With short bursts of light, our laser device targets these substances on the skin. Gradually, clumps of melanin and hemoglobin will break apart, revealing healthy, brighter skin. Maximizing the power of treatment is collagen, which is produced in greater quantity as a way to heal the supportive matrix beneath the skin.
There are several benefits to laser treatments performed by an experienced physician. Get reacquainted with your most attractive skin. Call (855) 400-3818 today.
