- Methods used in Spot Treatments
In spot treatments, it is primarily important to investigate any systemic disease, especially liver enzyme functions, or a disorder such as androgen insensitivity in the hormone panel. Today, many techniques have been developed, mostly glutathione, melanin-inhibiting factors, glycolide acid derivatives, and different energy-sourced laser technologies at different wavelengths. Sometimes these two methods are used in combination to increase the success rate. Spot treatment is not a one-session treatment. If a decision is made considering the depth and prevalence of the average stain, it is between 4-6 sessions. Due to the nature of the spots, most of them are in the uppermost layer of the skin, in the epidermis layer. With mesotherapy, it is aimed to reach the active substances that will inhibit the synthesis of glutathione and melanin, which will destroy the formation of stains with fine needle tips of 1-3 mm. Today, with the developing technology, q-swich lasers are frequently used. Spot treatment is a very stubborn treatment, even if it is completely removed, it can recur as sun exposure continues, especially people with Fitzpatrick skin type I-II-III should be careful to use sunscreen creams.
