Looking in the mirror and noticing a dark spot on your face or other part of your body can be troubling even if you’re aware that it’s rare for one to be harmful to your overall health. Brown spots that appear on your body can go by a number of names. They can be referred to as liver spots or even age spots since they begin to be most prevalent when you’re middle-aged. Having a brown spot on an area of your body that your clothes cover can be easier to accept than having one on your face, arms or neck. You may wonder what you ate or did that caused one or many to appear. The reasons why can vary.
Brown spots tend to start to appear as you age, but the condition that causes them can go back to earlier years of life when you may have spent time in the sun without applying lotions that offer protection from UVB rays, which can cause a variety of skin conditions that include Riehl’s Melanosis. Taking certain prescription medications can also result in changes to your skin.
Estrogen, some antibiotics and heart-related drugs can sometimes also cause certain areas of your skin to darken. Discoloration can be a symptom of other conditions such as Chloasma, which is also called Melasma. They can also be a sign that a woman might be pregnant. None of these conditions are life threatening. Even when dark spots are not an indicator of a larger illness, however, you may find them unpleasant and opt to remove them.
At Adoro Medical Spa we offer two different treatments for correcting brown spots in addition to the skin care products. If you aren’t looking for treatment, we can prescribe you either Glytone or Avène products, both by Pierre Fabre Laboratories. We will create a personalized skin care regimen to ensure lasting results and guaranteed satisfaction.
For treatments we offer CO2 laser resurfacing to address brown spots. Laser skin resurfacing can also reduce or eliminate wrinkles, excess skin, bulges under the lower eyelids, and scars. It removes the top layer of skin and tightens the dermis through advanced laser technology. Healing time takes about one week, and final results are visible six to twelve weeks after treatment.
We also offer IPL/BBL photorejuvenation, which use the power of wavelength light to stimulate collagen production. This is different from laser treatments in that lasers only penetrate to one layer of skin, while the photorejuvenation machine can be calibrated to penetrate to different layers. This allows IPL/BBL treatments to solve more skin problems.

I have nothing but the most outstanding of praise for the staff and Doctor Pacheco for the professional treatment and the kindest of care during my surgery and aftercare. I will be returning soon to take more years of my face. I was treated with total respect and dignity and highly recommend all to go here and feel, you are in the best of care. A special shout out to Shelley Robinson, who really put me at ease throughout my procedure and today as well.

Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Pacheco and her very professional and caring staff. I have been a patient as of 2019 when I sought help to correct some facial issues and asymmetry due to a medical condition. For years I had felt that nothing significant could be done but then I was referred to Dr. Pacheco’s practice. She suggested a number of procedures—thermage, Botox and fillers—and proceeded cautiously and conservatively at each step. I have been amazed and delighted with the improvements that have been made! My confidence and self image have greatly improved. Many, many thanks again to all at Adoro!
Delighted with results
