Unpacking Skin Spots: Types and Causes

The most commonly recommended procedures for treating blemishes or dark patches of skin are CO2 laser, pulsed light, and chemical peelings.

Their effects safely lighten dark spots while improving tissue texture, firmness, and elasticity, giving the skin more vitality and glow.

Dr. Szerman Explains:

In our clinic, we use Fractional and Pulsed CO2 Cold Laser to treat the skin without causing burns and minimizing the rebound effect of older techniques.

This allows us to soften skin spots with greater ease and safety for the patient.

The Clnica de Pele’s laser treatments for skin spots are not painful for the patient. They are also quick procedures with visible results from the first session.

The number of sessions needed to treat skin spots will vary depending on the type of spot, skin tone, and the patient’s response to the procedure. Each session lasts about 30 minutes on average, but this can vary depending on the individual case.

About us

How does it work?

Dr Guilherme began my CO2 laser treatment with great care, which proved to be a fantastic find. Despite knowing there was no cure, the treatment almost completely removed the skin spots. It also stimulated collagen production and rejuvenated the skin, making it firm and youthful. It was a fantastic treatment!

Skin spots can appear as a result of a variety of factors, including excessive sun exposure, premature aging, hormonal factors, genetics, or a lack of skin care.

The most common skin spots are as follows:
  • Sun spots
  • Melasma
  • Vitiligo
  • Acne scars
  • Mycosis (white spots)
For more information on treatment options., please contact us via WhatsApp.
One of the most effective treatments for treating spots are Peelings (Melanesse and Cosmelan), Pulsed Light, and the CO2 Deka Laser. But, it is important to consult a dermatologist for an initial assessment to identify the best treatment for your case.
To learn more about the treatment, please contact us via WhatsApp.

The procedure is usually well-tolerated due to its pulsed technology. The Deka laser gradually penetrates the deep layers of skin without causing the aggression that most other lasers do. Additionally, we use a powerful anaesthetic cream and a skin cooler device (Freddo), which emits a jet of iced air at minus 22 degrees Fahrenheit (-30 °C), making the procedure extremely comfortable for most patients.

The CO2 laser can be used on both the patient’s face and body.

Laser skin lightening for blemishes or dark patches of skin has an average cost ranging from R$ 500 to R$ 2,000. However, the price may vary based on the type of laser used and the area to be treated.

The number of sessions the patient will need may vary according to the severity of the problem and the patient’s response to the procedure.

Peels are usually effective for superficial spots, whereas the CO2 Deka Laser is better suited for deeper and more stubborn spots.

There may be some flaking on the face after the peeling. After the laser, redness, swelling, and mild to moderate stinging may occur, but these symptoms usually subside quickly. Within 24 hours, a light crust forms, which heals within 4 to 6 days (for the face) and 10 to 15 days (for the body) with the prescribed medication.
To speed up recovery and improve results, we offer an optional imported post-laser mask. The mask, which contains beta-glucan and hyaluronic acid, provides greater comfort after the procedure and enhances skin rejuvenation. We recommend that patients stay with the mask for approximately 25 minutes.

The CO2 laser is the gold standard in dermatology, and while individual responses may vary, we can assure you that we have treated thousands of patients with highly satisfactory results over many years. We are confident that you will be pleased with the results of your treatment as well.

In order to determine the optimal procedure for your case, it is necessary to conduct preliminary research. Conducting research, comparing, and comprehending the distinctions between different types of treatments is the most effective method to guarantee a safe and successful outcome for the desired procedure.

Besides, it is crucial to understand the primary differences between the types and brands of lasers available on the market. Making the right choices is fundamental for safety and achieving the best treatment results.

For safe treatment, only board-certified medical professionals specializing in aesthetic medicine and/or members of the Brazilian Society of Dermatology and/or Laser should be consulted.
