How can I remove freckles and spots from my face?

Come to Tijuana to get rid of skin spots and freckles from the face and any other area in your skin.

Usually, people say that freckles are cute, and probably they are right. But for some patients, it can be a real problem when skin spots and freckles grow in size or quantity by age, sun exposure, or other causes.

Then, the patients come to the doctor’s office and ask: How can I remove it?

Besides, they are concerned about the appearance of spots on their hands, neck, or face, which are usually related to the passage of time.

At Vive Spa Médico de Tijuana, we know its causes and the best ways to resolve it.

Freckles, why do they appear?

Freckles are those yellow, red, light brown, or black spots that appear at any age on the face or other areas of the skin. Regularly, the cause is sun exposure.
Freckles are more common on poorly pigmented skins, typically produced by exposure to ultraviolet light.
They are more intense and darker in the summer and decrease in winter.
Regularly, they are not an illness signal, but some people who have it want to remove it by esthetical causes.
Consult with your doctor to identify the causes and possible treatments to stop or remove freckles.

Skin spots caused by age

Age spots on the skin appear when the epidermis changes the production of melanin, the substance responsible for skin coloring.

The lack or excess of melanin in some areas of the body, mainly the hands and face, generate permanent spots.

Melanin is in the subcutaneous level, stimulated by the Sun, that’s why the spots usually appear in the most exposed areas of the skin.

Regularly, the age spots have an appearance like the freckles, but in a big size, colored in dark brown or black, and they appear in flat zones of the skin.

There is no particular age to skin spots, and sometimes they can appear early in life, around 40 years, less, or later.

Finally, remember that you can solve any esthetic problem with or without surgery. For surgery, consult Vive Plastic Surgery in Tijuana.

What can you do?

There are several treatments to remove skin blemishes.

C02 Fractional Laser is one of the best options to be evaluated by your doctor.

The treatment consists of the application of intense heat generated by a laser, which contributes to restoring the new skin.

Besides, this process also stimulates the production of collagen, the substance responsible for giving a youthful glow, moisture, and elasticity to the tissues, especially the skin.

The system helps to remove sunspots, but also to remove wrinkles, scars, or other skin imperfections.

The Intense Pulsed Light system

The Intense Pulsed Light treatment, also known as IPL, attacks the problems of skin pigmentation such as freckles and spots caused by sun exposure, age, or others.

IPL treatment helps erase spots generating new cells with the tone of the entire skin.

The procedure stimulates the skin with a powerful beam of light directed to the specific points of the damaged skin.

Besides, the beam of Intense Pulsed Light is graduated by a professional to direct it to the points in the depth and in the areas required, without affecting the surrounding tissues.
