A Laser Age Spot Removal Treatment

Age Spots / Brown Spots – The Issue

Age spots can be flat brown, gray, or black spots on the skin. They usually occur on sun-exposed areas, such as the face, hands, shoulders, chest and upper back. Age spots are also called liver spots, senile lentigo, solar lentigines, or sun spots.

They are the result of an excess production of melanin, or skin pigment. Skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet (UV) light exposure, such as tanning beds, are all possible causes. Although true age spots are harmless to your health, they can impact your self-confidence and they can be unsightly.

 

Laser treatment for pigmentation

What are the benefits of Age Spots and Sun Damage Treatment?

Laser treatments can help significantly reduce age spots. At London Real Skin we use AFT (Advanced Fluorescence Technology) which is the next generation of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser treatment technology.

Immediately after the treatment the spots will appear much darker. This is completely normal and part of the process. After a few days, the pigmentation will come up to the surface of the skin and naturally shred off the skin. As a result, the skin will be clear, free of age spots and the texture will be improved.


What is involved in Age Spots and Sun Damage Treatment?

During a skin consultation, one of our practitioner will examine your skin. They will determine if you are suitable for this procedure. If so, photos will be taken before the procedure.
The skin will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution and a cool gel will be applied onto skin. The practitioner will commence the treatment. Patient have reported a warm sharp sensation to the skin during the treatment.
Photos will be taken after the procedure, and this allows the practitioner to compare the results.


What are the risks or potential side-effects of Age Spots and Sun Damage Treatment?

Although there is no downtime associated with this treatment, patients can expect the treated spots to appear darker from 5 to 10 days, depending on the strength of the treatment. The age spots with will naturally disappear after a few days, leaving the skin clear.


What aftercare is required for Age Spots and Sun Damage Treatment?

The following aftercare is recommended to improve the treatment results and to minimise side-effects from the treatment:

  • The application of a cool pack during the first few hours after treatment will reduce any discomfort.
  • Apply only Biafine or aloe vera gel (without alcohol) to the treated area
  • Makeup may be used immediately after the treatment unless there is epidermal blistering. (Preferably mineral make up)
  • Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation or darker pigmentation. Use sunscreen SPF50+ or greater at all times throughout the course of treatment.
  • Avoid swimming until the treated area is fully healed
  • Avoid hot baths, heat treatments and exercise for the first 48 hours
  • Avoid picking scabs
  • Avoid using retinoids for 2 days before treatment and 7 days post treatment

Immediately after treatment, there may be redness and swelling at the treatment area, this may feel like mild sunburn. If pigment is present, it will become darker and form a scab. This is a normal effect of treatment. Swelling can occur, especially on cheek area. We recommend sleeping with an extra pillow to decrease swelling.
