By: Dr. Jared Young


There is a long list of factors that can contribute to the development of dark spots, blotches, or an uneven skin tone – some of which are unavoidable. Whatever the cause of your skin discoloration is, Opus RF skin resurfacing may be a fitting solution. At Bright Young Smiles in Lighthouse Point, FL, board-certified specialist Dr. Jared Young helps patients get a smoother, clearer complexion they can feel confident about with Opus RF skin resurfacing. Keep reading for a closer look at how Opus RF combats skin spots and sun damage, and find out what you can expect during and after this exciting treatment.

What causes dark spots on the face?

Hyperpigmentation or discoloration comes in many forms – like freckles, melasma, and sun spots – and can be caused by a number of factors. In many cases, more than one factor is contributing to a patient’s skin concerns, which can make them even more challenging to treat. Some of the most common causes of dark skin spots include:

  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Sun exposure
  • Sun damage
  • Hormone fluctuations
  • Pregnancy
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne scarring
  • Certain medications

How can I lighten up dark spots on my face?

There are several options for evening out your complexion, though many laser-based skin treatments are damaging to the skin and require a lengthy recovery period. With Opus RF skin resurfacing, however, patients can achieve stunning results with little, if any, downtime.

How does Opus skin resurfacing help with dark spots?

During an Opus skin resurfacing session, patients will lie comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms. The skin may be numbed with a topical anesthetic cream to minimize discomfort during treatment. Once the skin has been properly prepared, Dr. Young will pass the Opus RF plasma handpiece over the skin’s surface, delivering targeted energy to the deeper layers of the face. This helps to break up the pigment causing dark spots without damaging the outer layers of the skin, meaning patients enjoy only mild swelling and redness, which fades quickly after treatment.

How many Opus RF skin resurfacing treatments do I need?

While most patients will notice an improvement in their complexion after just a single Opus RF skin treatment, optimal results are typically achieved with a series of 2 – 4 sessions. During your initial consultation for Opus RF skin resurfacing in the Fort Lauderdale area, Dr. Young will evaluate your areas of discoloration and determine how many treatments may be appropriate and effective for you.

How long does Opus skin resurfacing last?

Some patients can enjoy a lifetime of clearer skin following Opus skin resurfacing. However, it is important to understand that the aging process will not stop and that new dark spots may appear over time. Should this happen, a repeat round of Opus RF skin resurfacing can help to restore the patient’s desired look. For the best and longest-lasting Opus results possible, patients should minimize sun exposure, wear sunscreen as often as possible, and maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.
