What are Dark and Age Spots?
Age spots, also known as sunspots, liver spots, dark spots and solar lentigines, appear on the skin as patches of slightly darker skin. Most age spots occur on the shoulders, face, arms and face. The condition most often occurs in those who are at least 50 years old.
Benefits of Dark and Age Spot Removal
If the dark area of skin is not cancerous, treatment is mostly cosmetic in nature. Our laser treatments require no downtime, and most procedures take less than one hour.
How Does Dark and Age Spot Removal Work?
Dark and age spots exist in the outermost layer of skin. Our laser treatments removal this damaged layer to reveal skin that more closely matches the surrounding skin.
Am I a Candidate for Dark and Age Spot Removal?
You may be a candidate for dark or age spot removal if you have a non-cancerous patch of skin that:
- Is a slightly darker, oval flat area
- Appears on an area that is frequently exposed to sunlight, such as the hands, face, shoulders and arms
- Has a brown, black or tan appearance
Because abnormal skin coloration and growth may be linked to some serious medical conditions, we recommend that you have the area of skin evaluated by Dr. Horton.
What to Expect from Dark and Age Spot Removal
Laser skin resurfacing is the most recommended option for dark and age spot removal. We use an advanced laser device that allows extreme precision in removing the superficial layers of skin. Once the damaged layer is removed, your body produces healthier new cells that are not as dark as the damaged skin. Several treatments may be needed to achieve the best results.
How Long is the Recovery After a Dark and Age Spot Removal Treatment?
Dark and age spot removal does not require a recovery period. Using sunscreen may help prevent new dark or age spots from developing.
