Removal of Sun Damage and Brown Spots with IPL
Reduce Sun Damage / Brown Spots with IPL Photofacial Treatments
Have you considered getting rid of sun damage and brown spots? One way to reduce unwanted sun damage, brown spots, age spots, freckles, facial veins, red spots and hyperpigmentation on your face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs is with IPL Photofacial technology using Cynosure’s innovative ICON laser.
The Medical Spa at Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center uses an advanced IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser technology system using the Cynosure ICON MaxG or MaxY handpieces that specifically target your unwanted dark pigment in your skin caused by sun damage.
IPL photorejuvenation technology sends small bursts of intense pulsed light that targets either brown or red pigment — found in your sun damaged skin. Once damaged, your body naturally absorbs and eliminates the unwanted pigment leaving the skin appearing rejuvenated.

The MaxG skin treatment can also be combined with our 1540 Fractional Non-Ablative Laser to smooth fine lines and winkles, remove skin imperfections, and lay down new collagen during the ThreeForMe™ Laser Treatment.
Typically a few treatments are needed depending on your condition, amount of damage, and skin type. Following the treatment, you may experience a mild, sun-burn like sensation with accompanied minor swelling that usually lasts several days. Over the next several days to weeks, you will expect the brown spots to darken and flake off while any red spots will coagulate and absorb naturally.
