There was a time when people believed that age spots were just a natural part of the aging process. They believed that as you got older, your skin started to change color, and there was just nothing that you could do about it. However, thanks to advances in medicine related to dermatology in recent years, it became very clear that sunspots on your face were not permanent. They were simply the result of excessive sun exposure. Once it was understood why people develop sunspots and age spots, then a plan of attack could be formulated to remove them. If you are looking for a simple and effective way to take years off your skin, you could benefit greatly from age and sun spot removal.
Our experts offer two options for age and sun spot removal in the form of laser removal and BroadBand Light™ (BBL) treatment. Each treatment provides effective results, and we can help you determine which one will work best for you during your consultation.
Laser removal treatment is an excellent form of age and sun spot removal that works without damaging the surrounding skin. The process involves targeting short pulses of light to the spots you would like to remove. Patients who choose this treatment usually receive the best results after two to three sessions.
One big reason why people are attracted to laser treatment as a method of age and sun spot removal is that the results are usually permanent. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule. There is the possibility the age spots could come back after extensive sun exposure, but the vast majority of patients find that the procedure has given them semi-permanent, if not permanent, spot reduction.
Like laser treatment, BBL takes two to three treatment sessions to provide the best results. While laser treatment is often the preferred choice among patients with fewer spots, BBL is ideal for treating larger areas. BBL also makes an excellent treatment for rosacea.
Patients are often glad to find out that neither treatment requires a lengthy recovery period. Since laser removal treatment and BBL are both nonsurgical and noninvasive, you can go back to your daily routine immediately after your session is finished. You will begin to see the full results of each treatment after about three weeks.
Of course, the biggest benefit of age and sun spot removal is the confidence that you feel when you look at yourself in the mirror. Since your skin looks healthy, you feel healthy. Since your skin looks younger, you feel younger. You have more confidence, and that confidence is reflected in the way you interact with others.
