To learn more about PicoSure® age spot removal, book your appointment with experienced aesthetic nurses online or by phone now.
The term “age spot” is a bit misleading as they are a result of sun exposure – not getting older. These brown spots are referred to as liver spots and are found on the hands, face, décolleté, arms and legs. Although they are more common on people with lighter skin, they are quite common on people over the age of 50 or who have spent years in the sun.
Preventing sunspots means avoiding overexposure to the sun and wearing sunscreen. Flawless recommends that patients wear Elta MD, hats or gloves when in the sun. However, that will not erase the sunspots that have already surfaced. Laser treatments are a fast and safe way to lighten and erase the spots.
Flawless has two lasers that can improve the tone and texture of sun-damaged skin. The Pico Laser is ideal for people who have larger areas that they want to treat. This technology not only targets the visible pigment, but it also breaks up the “future” pigment that is lurking under the surface. There is minimal downtime, people are usually red for 2-4 hours. Removing sunspots can require several treatments.
For those who only want to treat a couple of spots, our Elite Plus laser is a great option. During the treatment, the nurse will target each spot individually. After the laser treatment, these spots will darken, develop a gritty texture and eventually the top layer will come off. The process can take 10-14 days. Like the Pico laser, people may need several treatments to lighten and remove the spot.
Results depend on the age spot treatment you select, but they usually included:
It is important that you keep the area being treated out of the sun. We recommend that you wear a sunscreen like Elta MD every day – your sunscreen must block UVA and UVB rays. We also encourage our clients to invest in SkinCeuticals or Jan Marini Pigment Correctors. If you have any questions, please call the spa. You can request another copy of post-care instructions at any time.
