Age Spots

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.

Age Spot Removal at Scarpidis Aesthetics

Age Spot Removal for Flawless Skin

To restore your skin to a bright, even tone, free from facial flaws, we use one of the latest generation of advanced lasers, the Cutera Excel V. This state-of-the-art laser produces immediate results. The green light laser restores your skin to an even tone in just moments, with no downtime or long-term side effects. This system is highly flexible and adjustable, so the age spot area can be treated without impacting the surrounding tissue.

What Can I Expect with Age Spot Removal Treatment?

The first step in any facial treatment is a full evaluation of your skin, determining the number of age spots that need to be removed and on which areas of the body. No anesthetic is needed, as the system has a special cooling system that makes the procedure easy to tolerate. The procedure itself takes only fifteen to thirty minutes to complete. A hand piece is placed over the area to be treated until the age spot diminishes. Significant improvements can be seen in just one treatment. This laser is appropriate for all skin types.

Skin Restoration and Rejuvenation

High-Tech Treatments – Fast Results

To get rid of age spots quickly and effectively with this advanced treatment, you will be required to:

  • Eliminate use of tanning products for four weeks prior to treatment.
  • Arrive with clean skin, free from cosmetics, creams, and lotions.
  • Stop use of Accutane for six months prior to treatment.

After treatment, you may experience very minor issues, including:

  • Mild sensation like sunburn
  • Skin flaking
  • Mild bruising
  • Slight swelling

To care for your skin after treatment, use the gentlest cleansers, and wash the new, delicate skin carefully and without any rubbing. Avoid sun exposure and do not use tanning creams until your course of treatment is completed. Avoid high heat, such as hot tubs, saunas, or heavy exercise that leads to sweating for at least 48 hours after treatment.

A Fresh, More Youthful Look, Without Age Spots

Once the age spots are removed with treatment, there is often a dramatic improvement in your facial appearance. Your face will look younger, with an even skin tone. If you need a follow up treatment for larger sun-damaged areas. (You may require more than one treatment), this can be scheduled about four to six weeks after your first treatment. The first step to a clean, clear complexion, free from age spots, is to meet with us and allow us to evaluate your condition and advise you about the most effective way to rejuvenate and restore your skin.
