Age Spot Removal

An Overview

Look to these non-invasive treatments to eliminate age spots:

Photofacial

Microdermabrasion

Chemical Peel

Age spots, also known as liver spots or lentigines, are the flat, brown spots of discoloration that appear on the skin, usually tied to frequent sun exposure and aging. Age spots normally begin to appear in individuals over the age of 55, as a result of the increase of the ceroid pigment in the skin. However, people who spend a lot of time in the sun or in tanning booths are most susceptible to the condition, regardless of skin type.

There are numerous treatments available for age spot removal, from bleach creams and acid gels to skin sanding and electric needle techniques. For more precise, permanent results, however, you may want to look into a laser procedure like photofacial, as well as chemical based treatments such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels.

Age Spot Removal Reviews:

Expecting Spectacular Results

Posted by ELAINE P. on .
Since the procedure was done yesterday, it's too soon to say whether or not there's been an improvement. However, I had this treatment done in 2012 and was extremely satisfied -- amazed, actually -- with the results. There has always been more fat under my left eye than my right, so my treatment focused on evening it up and removing any build-up that had developed since 2012. My expectation is that the results will be as spectacular as they were in 2012.

Professional, Friendly, & Thorough Treatments

Posted by BRENDA V. on .
I had similar treatment several years ago but could not remember all of the technical vocabulary. After describing what was done and what results I was looking for, the tech knew exactly what I wanted. I have had three treatments so far and the results were what I was told they would be. Staff is very professional and friendly. And the best part is that the facility is so close.

Would Prefer A Tech With More Experience

Posted by JOANNE H. on .
the only thing that made me feel uncomfortable was the girl who did my 1st treatment only had 3 months experience, I wish i had the other lady with more experience. I will ask for the other girl when I schedule my next treatment.

Have Had 3 Treatments & No Results

Posted by JUAN R. on .
Purchased 5 treatments for freckle removal, have had 3 treatments so far with no results whatsoever.

Friendly & Accommodating Staff, But Too Early To Tell How Successful Results Will Be

Posted by VERONICA L. on .
Staff is friendly and accommodating and the pictures of results obtained on other customers made me I consider that it is worth to drive 200 miles for each appointment to get what I needed (therefore my "neutral" rating for the convenience of the location. I gave a "neutral" rating to satisfaction at this time because I am only half way through my treatment. I see some progress and I HOPE the final results will be very satisfactory, but it is too early to say that.
