If you have skin discoloration, age spots and sun damage.
Many people don’t know it, but the largest organ in the body is our skin, and its main job is to protect us from foreign invaders such as bacteria, fungus, infections, and more. Our skin regenerates quite quickly, however, over time that regeneration may slow down and require some assistance from us. One of the most common things we see in patients is skin discoloration, and while it is common, it may be something more serious if you or members of your family have a history of skin cancer. Don’t worry though, there are many treatment options available for patients suffering from skin discoloration.

Skin Discoloration: What Is It Exactly?
Human skin has a complex composition and consists of several layers. Melanin is is responsible for the color tone of our skin is found in epidermis. While melanin dictates what our skin color will be, it also protects us from elements such as sunlight.
As we get older, the melanin in our skin will sometimes clump up together or clot, so to speak. This will cause dark spots or patches. Now, most of the time, these patches are 100% harmless. However, it is still important to get them checked out by a doctor, just to be safe.

Why choose non-surgical skin procedures?
Many people prefer the non-surgical treatment options over surgical options because they are safer and less expensive than invasive procedures. This allows individuals to return back to their normal lives pretty quickly afterward. Not only are these procedures non-invasive, but they don’t normally take a lot of time to complete, so the time individuals are out is normally very short.
Are there any side effects?
Some individuals will experience tenderness on their skin or redness around the treated area; however, this normally disappears in a couple hours. Dr. Rapaport and our staff are trained to perform these procedures and normally use options that allow for numbing of the skin prior to the procedure.
Hyperpigmentation is usually a cosmetic concern rather than a medical one. There are several options for pigmentation that can help you lighten or completely remove some dark patches.
Speak to your doctor if you’re concerned about your skin pigmentation or suspect that your skin discoloration is caused by an underlying medical condition or medication.
