Age and Sun Spots

Fade Your Spots

Age spots and other undesired pigmentation on your face, hands, chest, and other areas make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. New York Skin & Vein offers non-invasive age spot treatments that remove age and sun spots and other pigmentation while also shrinking pores without downtime! 

What Causes Age Spots? 

Age spots, despite their name, are a result of sun exposure – not getting older. These brownish spots are sometimes referred to as liver spots and can be found on the hands, face, neck, arms, and legs. They are a form of hyperpigmentation. Although they are most common on people with lighter skin, they can appear on anyone over the age of 50 or people who have spent years in the sun.

What Treatments are Available for Age Spots?

Preventing sunspots means avoiding overexposure to the sun. Dr. Dohner recommends that wear sunscreen and cover up when going in the sun. However, that will not erase sunspots that have already appeared. Laser treatments are a fast and safe way to lighten and erase the spots. 

The Pico Laser and Excel® V Laser are both excellent options for people who have specific age spot areas they want to treat. This technology not only targets the noticeable pigment, but it also breaks up the pigment sitting under the surface. There is minimal downtime with these lasers; people are usually red for 2-4 hours following treatment. Removing sunspots can require more than one treatment.  

What Results Will I See?*

Results depend on the age spot treatment you select, but they usually include improvement and reduction in the appearance of age spots, clearer skin tone and texture, and younger-looking skin.

Is There Any Downtime?*

There is little to no downtime when it comes to laser treatments. Once you’ve been treated for age spots, it’s crucial that you keep the treated area out of the sun. We recommend you invest in skincare products with SPF and sunscreen to wear when you’re going outside.
