What is it?
Age spots, also known as sun spots, liver spots, brown spots, and freckles, are caused by uneven distribution of melanin - skin pigment. The melanin pigment in our skin absorbs sunlight and helps protect our skin from UV rays. As our skin ages, our natural ability to fend off UV rays decreases resulting in sun damage and age spots.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
At Revita Skin Clinic, we use intense pulsed light to treat sun and age spots. Our experienced team will assess the skin to be treated, then systematically move the laser hand piece over the selected area(s). Clients will experience a warm sensation over the treated area. After the initial treatment, skin spots may appear slightly red for several hours, and it is normal for brown pigmented lesions to look darker.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL YOU NEED?
A single treatment can reduce the pigmented blemish. However more often than usual, you may require more than one treatment which will be determined during your free complimentary consultation.
