Age spots also called liver spots and solar lentigines are small dark areas on your skin. They usually appear on the face, hands, shoulders and arms - areas most exposed to the sun. Dr. Alam and Dr. McGuire utilize a laser to non-surgically treat age and sun spots. Book your appointment today.
Lentigines or lentigos are like freckles. But where a true freckle will fade in the winter when sun exposure is limited, these age spots do not go away on their own. If your skin is prone to developing lentigines, unless you protect it from the sun, you will likely develop more.
At Image Revolution Health and Medical Spa, our physicians use a laser to handle age spots. By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin's surface, the laser improves the appearance of age spots through collagen stimulation. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness and discoloration.
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin's surface during the procedure. You can immediately return to normal activities. You will not need gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment.
We usually recommend a course of two to three treatments to see how the laser can help reduce the age spots. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.*
If you are seeing age spots, we recommend you contact our office today to see if the Laser photo facial is the answer for you.
