Blemish-Free Skin: Remove Unwanted Age Spots, liver spots, Sun Spots, and Brown Spots

Laser treatment is generally very effective at removing age spots, liver spots, sun spots, and brown spots on the skin. It is the treatment of choice for these pigmented lesions. Lasers work by emitting a beam of specialized light that passes through the skin and is preferentially absorbed by only the pigmented cells in the skin. The laser causes the pigments to break up and disappear, leaving you with smooth, clear skin. There are several lasers available that work remarkably well in treating unwanted pigmentation.

Do Laser Treatments for Sun Spot Removal Hurt?

Most patients describe the sensation as feeling like the snap of a rubber band on the skin as the laser pulses are delivered to the skin. Following treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Typically, one to four or more treatment sessions are necessary to remove the spots, depending on how many there are and in which area of the body. Occasionally, darker and larger lesions may require additional treatment to obtain optimal results.

How Long Do Treatments Take?

The laser treatment sessions usually take only a few minutes, depending on the pigmented spots' number, size, and location.

Will The Spots Come Back After Treatment?

We generally find that laser removal of age spots is a permanent solution, and they do not usually reappear. However, people sometimes see new spots appear as they return to the sun. New spots are forming, not a recurrence of the old, removed spots. It is crucial to apply sunscreen diligently to the treated area and avoid sun exposure for optimal results.

Are These Treatments Safe?

Lasers and advanced light systems have been used on millions of patients safely worldwide, regardless of age. These systems only treat targeted lesions (spots), leaving the surrounding tissue intact. There are many benefits to laser surgery, including tiny, if any, pain, no need for injections or needles, and minimal bruising or swelling. The risk of scarring or discoloration is minimal. A doctor should evaluate any dark spot that is either new or changing.

How Will I Feel After My Laser Treatments?

Following laser treatment, there may be a slight discoloration. After several days, a crust will form, which will later fall off, usually within 7-14 days. Occasionally, some discoloration may persist for several months.
