Age Spot Removal

Age spots, also known as liver spots or solar lentigines, are a very common skin problem.  The cause of these spots is a combination of aging and exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light.  Often these spots appear in clusters and range in color form light brown to almost black.  Avoiding sun exposure is the best way to prevent age spots.

How can age spots be treated?

Dr. Levine will examine your skin and determine if laser, dermabrasion, or chemical might be appropriate.

What can I expect during the treatment?

The treatment usually takes 15 minutes.  Most patients report minor discomfort.  Numbing cream can be applied if requested.

What can be expected following treatment?

Immediately after treatment, your skin may appear red.  The age spots will often appear gray and may become darker.  Within 7 to 14 days, they will begin to exfoliate.  Often 1 treatment is enough to remove the age spots.  Sometimes multiple treatments are required.
