Laser Hair Removal in GOLDSBORO, NC

Brown Spots

Brown spots on the skin are a common sign of aging. They are usually caused by an accumulation of sun exposure over the years, although they may be due to trauma or injury (called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). Also known as age or liver spots, they are flat painless areas, light brown to black in color. Brown spots tend to appear on the parts of the body that are most likely to be uncovered and unprotected from the sun, such as the face, hands, arms, shoulders and feet. They vary in size, but are larger than freckles. Brown spots are very common in people over the age of 40.

The Candela PicoWay® laser is a very successful form of treatment for the removal of brown spots. The laser uses pulses of light energy to safely and easily target only the hyperpigmented cells and break them down. The PicoWay laser is extremely accurate, providing a thorough treatment of an area without harming surrounding tissue. It can be used on all skin types with little discomfort.

Stop the razor bumps!!!!!

Pseudofolliculitis barbae (razor bumps) is a common condition of the beard area and scalp occurring in African Americans and other people with curly hair. The problem results when highly curved hairs grow back into the skin causing inflammation and a foreign body reaction. Over time, this can cause keloidal scarring which looks like hard bumps of the beard area and neck. In the past the only good solution to treat this condition was to just grow a beard. Now laser hair removal with the GentleYAG laser offers an alternative treatment to this condition.
