What Are Age Spots?
Age spots are dark areas that appear on the skin as a result of sun exposure. The spots are typically very small and may resemble freckles. Anyone can develop age spots, but the condition most often occurs in men and women who are 50 or older.
What Treatment Can Be Done To Remove Age Spots?
Age spots, or sun spots, can be removed through laser treatments. Laser treatments for age spot or sun spot removal are most effective when combined with topical bleaching agents to ensure lasting results.
Will My Age Spots Disappear Completely?
The combination of laser treatments and bleaching significantly reduce the appearance of age spots. The degree is which the age spots fade varies by patient.
Will I Need Multiple Treatments To Reduce Age Spots?
At the time of your follow-up appointment, we may recommend a second laser treatment for your age spots.
If The Age Spots Are On My Face, Can I Wear Makeup After Treatment?
Depending on your skin type, we may recommend that you avoid using makeup and moisturizers after your age spot treatment.
