Age spots or liver spots or solar lentigines are defined as flat patches of dark skin that appear on different parts of the human body. These dark spots or patches are harmless and mostly appear on the face, neck and back of the hands. These spots differ in size and shape.
Prolonged exposure to the sun, more specifically to the harmful UV rays, is the main reason for the formation of age spots on the skin. The sun’s UltraViolet rays increase the production of melanin in the body, thus, resulting in the formation of age spots or dark spots.
Age spots develop in areas most exposed to the sun:
- Upper Back
- Back of the hands.
Age spots generally appear in people that are 40 years and above, however, they may even appear in younger people with prolonged exposure to the sun. People with lighter skin tones or white people are more prone to age spots or dark spots on their skin due to sun exposure.
Age spots removal treatment
Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre offers the most comprehensive age spots removal treatment to provide smoother, tighter and radiant facial skin. The different age spots removal treatments offered at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre include:
Fraxel Laser treatment
Fraxel laser is a technologically advanced treatment for fine lines, powers and age spots removal. It is a very secure and swift treatment that uses high-intensity laser beams to treat various skin issues. In this TGA and FDA approved treatment, a fractional or Fraxel laser device is used to create micro-wounds on the targeted area of the facial skin. These micro-wounds trigger the natural healing process of the skin. This leads to the production of collagen and elastin. The skin develops healthier skin tissues. The age spots, fine lines and pores fade away, your skin is rejuvenated providing you with smoother, tighter and radiant facial skin.
Microdermabrasion is a secure and swift cosmetic procedure, wherein, a handheld device is used to gently peel off or remove the dead and dry top layer of the skin to reveal the healthy skin underneath.
This process leads to an effective reduction in the appearance of age spots and provides smoother radiant and healthier skin. With successive treatment sessions, you’ll experience complete removal of age spots and a tighter and younger skin tone.
The chemical peel is another effective cosmetic treatment for age spots removal. In this procedure, the dermatologist applies a TGA & FDA approved chemical solution on the facial skin. The chemical solution is very secure and acts only on the impacted area of the skin. This chemical layer peels off the dry and dead top layer of the skin to reveal the healthy skin underneath.
This peeling action results in the production of new and healthy skin tissues on the impacted area of the skin. As a result, your skin gets rejuvenated with the new skin tissues, and age spots or sun spots are greatly reduced.
With successive skin peel treatment, your age spots will get eliminated to achieve a smoother, tighter and youthful skin appearance.
