Smooth, even-toned, clear facial skin looks fresh, bright, and youthful. Unfortunately, as the years pass, the areas of the skin with the highest exposure to UV rays often begin to develop age spots. These spots may appear brown, black, or grey, typically appearing first on the hands and face. They are the result of the skin producing excess melanin, a natural pigment in the hair and skin.
These unsightly spots can be difficult to cover up with makeup, and leave the face, hands, arms, and upper back with a splotchy appearance. These spots, (also called sun spots) do not pose a health risk, but can be an aesthetic concern. At Scarpidis Aesthetics in New York, we offer the most advanced, non-invasive treatments for the safe removal of age spots.
