Southern California, with an average of 300 sunny days a year, it’s difficult to
avoid the damaging effects of sun exposure. Sun spots (also called age spots or
liver spots) appear over time in response to overexposure to sunlight. In the process
of trying to protect us from the sun's harmful rays, our skin and lips develops excess melanin
(pigment). This excess pigment shows up in the form of sun spots, and as we age,
our skin thins causing these spots to become more visible.
In addition to sun spots, Celibre also removes pigment associated with melasma, freckles, acne scars and
trauma scars. Regardless of how the excess pigment came about, we
have the ability to remove it with lasers.
Sun spots (lentigines) are small flat pigmented spots, similar to freckles that
are most often seen on sun exposed skin. They are different from freckles in that
they do not usually change color when exposed to the sun.
Sun spots may occur
anywhere but usually appear on areas of the body that are subject to high sun exposure
– the face, shoulders, neck, ears, and back of the hands.
Traditional treatments for sun spots and other types of pigment, which include topical
bleaching agents or freezing methods, often produce only temporary results. In contrast,
Celibre uses state-of-the-art, FDA-approved laser sunspot removal technology to
safely and effectively get rid of unwanted sun damage. Our q-switched lasers are
specifically designed to eliminate age spots and sun spots permanently.
