Ransom/MD offers two types of skin resurfacing for patients who desire a change. Ablative and non-ablative laser resurfacing are highly effective in improving your skin and giving you the results you deserve and desire. There are several reasons you may choose one of these types of skin resurfacing treatments. Many of the reasons for this type of treatment are related to sun damaged skin due to Ultraviolet(UV) rays.
If you have freckles (flat and circular spots that are typically small in size and brown or beige in color) you may want to minimize their appearance. Exposure to the sun can darken them and also cause developing clusters to areas that are regularly exposed to the sun.
Melasma is an abnormal patch of skin discoloration or darkening. It usually appears on your forehead, cheeks, nose, chin or upper lip. Melasma usually appears along with hormonal shifts (particularly pregnancy). UV exposure can increase the condition significantly.
Age spots are also known as sunspots. These flat brown spots resemble freckles, and appear when your skin is chronically exposed to UV rays. The most common locations for age spots are on your face, hands, neck, décolletage, arms and legs.
If you have skin that has been strongly and negatively affected by the sun’s harmful UV rays, there are effective solutions for you. Dr. Ransom at Ransom/MD offers many great options for you to regain a beautiful and healthy appearance to your skin. Call and book your appointment today.
