Age Spot Removal

Age Spot Removal

Age spots (also known as Liver Spots, sun spots or Solar Lentigo) become an unwanted consequence of sun exposure and the skin’s natural ageing process. Presenting as areas of uneven skin tone or pigmentation, age spots result when excess melanin (skin pigment) has been stimulated.

How do age spots form?

The main factors that contribute to age spots include:

  • Sun damage/ exposure
  • Age

Age spots are not just restricted to the facial area and are commonly present on the shoulders, neck, décolletage, backs of the hands or any sun-exposed areas.

Age Spots Treatment Solutions

Australian Laser & Skin Clinics provides highly effective procedures that can address and treat all types of age spots on all areas of the body to provide long lasting and targeted results. All age spot removal treatments are performed by paramedically trained skin clinicians or registered nurses.

Options include:

Photo Rejuvenation

Photo Rejuvenation is an extremely effective treatment against age spots that can appear on various parts of the body. Performed with our Medical Grade Intense Pulsed Light Laser or IPL, Photo Rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that uses light to absorb melanin (the dark pigment) that appears in age spots. This light converts to heat, which damages the target cells without upsetting the skin’s surface. After treatment, they will go darker then will fall off within 7 to 28 days (depending on the area of the body) or will just gradually fade.

**Photo Rejuvenation is most suitable for fair to olive complexions; dark to very dark skin tones are not suitable for this method of age spot removal**

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are an ideal choice for the treatment of age spots, particularly for lighter coloured spots. There are a number of chemical peels that are specifically formulated to help with the reduction of age spots and even out overall skin tone, while leaving the skin hydrated.

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

LLLT gently assists in the reduction and formation of age spots without heat or discomfort. Emitting a gentle beam to areas affected by age spots, LLLT works within the skin to balance over-active melanocytes (pigment producing cells) and sun damaged cells.

Skin Care

  • Daily use of a sunscreen is essential when receiving Photo Rejuvenation or Chemical Peel treatments. Regular application can also prevent further age spots from appearing.
  • Using products that contain Vitamin A and Vitamin C can reduce the appearance of age spots.
