Age spots are also called liver spots or sun spots because of the fact that they appear due to long exposure to the sun without having used sunscreen protection. They are usually harmless, but after many years of sunbathing without the abovementioned protection, the melanin that our body produces in response to UV light builds up under the first skin layer, thus developing these age spots.
Age spots occur in areas of your body that have been most exposed to the sun so your face, forearms, trunk, back of the hands and shoulders are likely to have painless, flat patches with colors that can vary from light brown to black on them. They appear in people who have passed their 40’s and in some cases you may develop age spots that are not related to sun exposure.
There is also the possibility that one type of sunspot appears due to a fungus called tinea versicolor that makes the dark-skinned people’s patches look lighter than usual and the light-skinned people’s patches look darker than usual. Some people might mistake them with cancerous growths, but as they are a harmless skin condition, age spots do not represent a threat to your health unless they start to change their color or you begin to experience symptoms such as itching and bleeding. If that happens, it is really important to contact a specialist in order to find out what you are dealing with.
At our Renew Skin & Health Clinic the doctor specialist, a highly trained and experienced practitioner, performs professional private treatments that are highly efficient in age spots removal. These are safe and painless methods as they imply the use of a pulsating light through the laser beams emitted by the innovative medical devices. DEKA CO2 laser therapy and ND: YAG laser treatment are the most effective in age spots removal. However, prior to any of these two treatments a specialized consultation is needed in order to determine if you can undergo the non-surgical procedure.
During the professional private treatment with DEKA CO2 laser therapy for age spots removal at Renew Skin & Health Clinic the doctor specialist carefully handles the device in order to work precisely upon the affected areas of your skin and remove the age spots without harming the surrounding tissue, thus leaving your skin patch-free and renewed. The procedure is quite the same with the ND: YAG laser treatment for age spots removal as the high-intensity beams of light heat the areas of your skin affected by the patches, successfully removing the age spots.
Whether you undergo the DEKA CO2 laser therapy or the ND: YAG professional private laser treatments at Renew Skin & Health Clinic you might need more than one session, depending on the test results after the specialized consultation, as well as on your skin’s type and the way it has reacted to the first session.
