Prevention and treatmentMost red spots are the result of your genetic makeup, or triggered by UV exposure. The best way to prevent this condition is to wear broad spectrum, high SPF sunscreen every day.
Existing red spots can be treated effectively with laser technology. The ExcelV laser selectively targets the red pigmentation and vaporizes the spot almost instantly. Dr. Amanda Lloyd begins with a topical numbing agent, for a virtually painless procedure. It takes only about 20 minutes for a full-face treatment, and there is little to no downtime. Results are long-lasting. However, continued sun exposure may cause new red spots to form, so maintenance is recommended. Laser therapy may be used as a sole treatment, or combined with other skin rejuvenation techniques.
Dr. Amanda Lloyd wants patients throughout North County San Diego to have smooth even complexions when they look in the mirror. Call Skin & Vein Institute at (760) 642-6674 for beautiful, healthy skin that’s free of red spots.
