Age and Sun Spot Removal in New York and New Jersey
Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey offer age and sun spot removal to the residents of New York and New Jersey.
What are Age Spots?
Age spots, also known as sun spots or solar lentigines typically appear on your face, hands and back as brownish or grey discolorations on your skin. Age spots are caused by sun exposure and normally do not require medical treatment. Many patients, though, seek treatment from Dr. Goldberg for cosmetic reasons.
Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York offers several laser treatments for age spots. The most common laser devices used in our facility for age or sun spot removal are:
- Intense Pulsed Light Laser
- Broad Band Light Laser
- Q Switched Laser
Despite the many lasers available to remove age spots, our physician favorite is the Q Switched laser. This laser is, in our opinion, the quickest and most effective laser treatment for the removal of brown spots on almost any area of the body. The Q Switched laser is also used to remove tattoos and unwanted permanent makeup.
The patient to the left wanted to remove a large brown spot on her cheek. She was treated with the Q-Switched laser to achieve the result you see here.
How does the Q Switched Laser work?
The laser energy of the Q-Switched Laser penetrates the areas of pigment that cause age spots and sun spots and breaks apart the pigmentation. Your body then naturally absorbs the particles of pigment.
Q Switched Laser Treatment Benefits:
- Removes sun and brown spots
- Removes tattoos
- Results in only minor skin irritation after treatment
- Stimulates new collagen to improve skin tone
- Many patients require only one treatment
Things to Know:
- The sensation of the laser treatment is similar to snapping a rubber band against your skin. Some patients may not be able to tolerate this type of discomfort and topical anesthesia may be administered to help you remain comfortable.
- Prior to your treatment for age spots and sun spots, you should avoid sun exposure.
- You may have blistering in the treatment area after your procedure.
