What Causes Dark Spots? 

The overproduction of pigmented cells called melanin causes dark spots. In most cases, this excess pigment results from overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun.


After years of sun exposure, dark pigmentation referred to as age spots or sunspots form on areas often left uncovered, like your face, arms, hands, and chest. If you’ve used tanning beds or lamps, you have an increased risk for dark spots.

Can Dark Spots Be Prevented? 

You can slow the development of future sunspots with proper prevention focused on limiting sun exposure. The medical team at northstar medical spa suggests that you:

  • Stay Out of the Sun From 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM When UV Rays Are at Their Strongest
  • Use Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen With an SPF of at Least 30 and Reapply Every 2 Hours
  • Cover Your Skin With UV Protective Clothing and Wide-Brimmed Hats

How Are Dark Spots Treated? 

At northstar medical spa, the board-certified team uses the Cynosure® Icon® laser system to reduce the appearance of dark spots. The Icon laser uses fractionated laser light energy to penetrate deep into your skin, focusing its energy into the pigmented cells.


The laser energy destroys these cells, causing them to break into minuscule pieces that eventually get carried away by your body’s natural healing processes.


In other cases, your doctor may recommend laser skin resurfacing, also completed with the Icon laser system. This aesthetic treatment improves your skin’s texture and reduces the appearance of:

  • Age Spots
  • Sun Damage
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Stretch Marks
  • Acne Scars
  • Traumatic and Surgical Scars
By creating micro-injuries on your skin, this rejuvenating skin treatment harnesses your body’s healing response to encourage the development of new, healthy skin. Your skin then looks smoother, tighter, and younger.

When Can You Expect Results After Laser Treatment?

After spot treatments with the Icon laser, you can expect to start seeing results in a few weeks. The process of pigment removal takes time, and you won’t reach maximum results until 3-4 months after treatment.


In some cases, your doctor may recommend multiple treatments to help you gain optimal results. Appointments should be scheduled a minimum of 4-6 weeks apart to guarantee your skin heals between sessions.


If you’re ready to rid yourself of age spots, contact northstar medical spa today to schedule your appointment.

How Does Laser Wrinkle Reduction Work? 

When you visit northstar urgent care for wrinkle reduction laser treatment, your doctor uses the innovative Cynosure® Icon® laser system. The Icon erases fine lines and wrinkles, improving the texture and appearance of your skin after just one treatment.


The Icon uses ablative fractional laser energy to penetrate deep into your skin, promoting the production of collagen and elastin. These are proteins that improve the health and elasticity of your skin and its support structures. This makes skin tighter and smoothens out fine lines and wrinkles.


The laser energy of the Icon system creates micro-abrasions in the deep layers of your skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. This response eliminates old, tired skin cells, replacing them with new, rejuvenated cells that smoothen your skin and improve its texture and volume.

What Happens During Laser Wrinkle Reduction? 

Laser treatment with the Icon system tightens your skin without surgery or invasive measures. To begin your treatment, your doctor at northstar medical spa prepares the equipment and gives you a pair of glasses that you must wear throughout the entire treatment process.


Using the Icon handheld device, your doctor administers laser light energy around your wrinkles and fine lines. This FDA-approved treatment can take as little as 15 minutes and requires no downtime after your treatment session.

What Results Can You Expect After Laser Wrinkle Reduction? 

You may notice immediate effects after your laser wrinkle reduction treatment. Over the next few weeks to months, wrinkle reduction continues to smoothen your skin as it tightens and increases in firmness and elasticity.

While benefits occur with just one treatment, your doctor may recommend two or three sessions to give you the best results. They will schedule these appointments 4-6 weeks apart to ensure that your skin has completely healed between treatments.

Because the effects of skin tightening occur over time, they’re often more natural looking than more aggressive wrinkle reduction methods like facelifts and injectables.

The changes in laser treatment develop so gradually that people won’t realize you’ve had an aesthetic treatment. They’ll just know you look great.
