This patient wanted to get rid of brown spots on her face and achieve a luminous glow. After years of sun exposure, she’d researched and read that today’s top of the line laser technology can remove age spots fast. She decided to try it out as a way to clear away dark spots and rejuvenate her skin. Dr. Umar of Dr. U Hair & Skin Clinic in Redondo Beach treated her in a single session with Fraxel Dual laser.
Fraxel laser for brown spots was the right choice in this case for a few specific reasons. First of all, Fraxel Dual is gentle yet powerful enough to be safe and effective for all skin types (which is not the case for all laser systems). Second, it successfully addressed several other issues of concern for this patient, including pore size, smoothness, and an overall even texture.

Frequently Asked Questions – Get Rid of Brown Spots
Is it possible to clear away dark spots with creams and over the counter medications?
This depends on the severity, age, and depth of your dark spots. Hydroquinone is one well-known and widely used cream that acts as a powerful bleaching agent to get rid of brown spots but its harmful ingredients have rendered the cream less popular than it once was. However, no such cream will be as fast, powerful or effective at smoothing skin tone and texture as laser treatments. Bleaching creams also do not have the same rejuvenating, anti-aging benefit.
After I get rid of the brown spots with a laser, how do I make sure they don’t come back?
The largest contributor to premature aging, brown spots, fine lines, and wrinkles is sun exposure. The sun is a powerful energy source that wreaks havoc on unprotected skin. Over time, it causes the skin to lose elasticity and destroys melanocyte, pigment-producing cells. If you undergo a Fraxel Dual treatment to get rid of brown spots, avoid direct sun exposure at all costs to ensure they do not return. Wear hats, sunscreen, sunglasses, and any other protective gear possible. Another important way to maintain luminously, resurfaced skin is to use a good daily moisturizer and drink plenty of water.
Does Fraxel laser for brown spots ever require more than one treatment?
Yes, using the Fraxel Dual laser to remove age spots fast may not be quite as fast for patients requiring more than one session. Treatments must be spaced about four weeks apart, and the number of sessions needed will depend on the condition of the patient’s skin, as well as their cosmetic goals. The more age spots there are, the darker and deeper they are, the more likely it is that two or more sessions will be necessary.
I’m wondering how to minimize pores, what is the best approach to take?
Figuring out how to minimize pores for your skin type is all about the collagen. Pore size is a direct reflection of the strength of the collagen in the surrounding tissue. As people age and the skin loses elasticity, collagen becomes lax and the pores start to enlarge. To reduce pore size over time, you can try using products that promote cell regeneration and collagen renewal. This would include a highly effective vitamin C serum (look for a product that contains about 15-20% pure L-ascorbic acid) or a high-grade retinol cream; these are the two major collagen boosters. If your skin is more advanced in age, topical creams and serums will not produce a dramatic result. At this point, treatment with the Fraxel Dual laser would be ideal.
