Age spots or liver spots are a common occurrence in adults over the age of fifty. These spots appear on the hands and face and typically affect areas that experience a lot of sun exposure. The age spots can be brown, tan, or black in color and vary in size. For some people, these spots can be an eyesore, as they can blemish your skin’s youthful appearance.
One of the most effective treatments is the laser. This is an advanced technique that uses laser technology to treat discoloration of the skin. A laser FotoFacial is a great method for dealing with age spots.
The laser FotoFacial works by pulsing light into the skin. The light is absorbed by the darker-colored age spots, which causes those particular skin cells to rise in temperature. The melanin that causes discoloration absorbs the light and fragments without causing damage to any surrounding skin tissue. This is also a useful method for treating spider veins.
Though results are achieved with just a single treatment, it is often recommended that patients undergo multiple treatments for larger spots. One session is usually fifteen to thirty minutes in duration. The treatments are ideal for patients with lighter-pigmented skin. The laser FotoFacial treatment is also known for its ability to boost collagen production in the skin as well as remove fine lines and wrinkles.
There is no downtime after the treatment, though you may experience some redness or peeling. Patients are advised to wear sunscreen (at least 30 SPF) every day thereafter.
