SKIN PROBLEMS: PIGMENTS AND AGE SPOTS

Updated: Oct 13, 2023




As we age, our skin undergoes a variety of changes. One standard change is the appearance of age spots, liver spots, or solar lentigines. These are small, dark patches of skin that typically appear on the face, hands, arms, and shoulders. Age spots are due to prolonged exposure to sunlight and can make your skin look older and less vibrant. Fortunately, several aesthetic treatments are available to help reduce the appearance of age spots and other types of pigmentation.


If you are looking for an effective and non-invasive way to reduce the appearance of age spots and other types of pigmentation, PicoSure may be the solution for you. PicoSure is a cutting-edge aesthetic treatment that uses advanced laser technology to target and eliminate unwanted pigmentation in the skin.


PicoSure emits ultra-short pulses of laser energy designed to specifically target melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. Unlike other laser treatments that can damage surrounding tissue, PicoSure's advanced technology allows for precise pigmentation targeting while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. ThPicoSure is a safe and effective treatment option for many skin types and tones.


One of the critical benefits of PicoSure is its ability to produce significant results with minimal downtime. Unlike other laser treatments that may require several weeks of recovery, PicoSure typically only requires a few days of mild redness or swelling. Patients can return to their normal activities almost immediately after the treatment.


In addition to its effectiveness in treating age spots, PicoSure can address various other pigmentation issues, including freckles, sun damage, and tattoos. The treatment is highly customizable, allowing for targeted and precise treatment of specific areas of the skin.


If you are considering PicoSure for age spot treatment, working with a qualified and experienced aesthetic professional is crucial. During a consultation, your provider can assess your needs and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve the best possible results.


Overall, PicoSure is an innovative and highly effective treatment option for reducing the appearance of age spots and other types of pigmentation. With its advanced laser technology and minimal downtime, PicoSure can help you achieve a more youthful, radiant complexion and enjoy smoother, clearer skin.



Another option for treating age spots is chemical peels. This treatment involves applying a solution to the skin that causes the top layer to peel off, revealing fresh, new skin underneath. Chemical peels can effectively reduce the appearance of age spots and other types of pigmentation, such as freckles and melasma.


Topical treatments may be a good choice for those who prefer a less invasive option. These treatments typically contain ingredients such as hydroquinone, which helps to lighten dark spots over time. While topical treatments may take longer to produce results than laser therapy or chemical peels, they can be effective and are generally well-tolerated.


Ultimately, the best treatment for age spots will depend on your skin type and the severity of your pigmentation. A consultation with our Aesthetic Professionals can help determine which treatment is proper for you. Adequate treatment allows you to achieve a more youthful, radiant complexion and enjoy smoother skin.
