Age Spot Treatments

ERASE SPOTS

What is Age Spot Treatments?

Age spots, commonly seen as flat, darkened patches of skin, are often a result of aging and prolonged sun exposure. These and other variations like brown spots and sun-induced discolorations can significantly affect one’s skin appearance. Fortunately, advancements in dermatological science offer a suite of medical treatments that effectively address these concerns, restoring your skin to its radiant and youthful state.

 

UNDERSTANDING AGE AND SUN SPOTS

These spots, known medically as solar lentigines, manifest due to the skin’s natural response to UV damage. Over time, melanin, our skin’s pigment, can accumulate or produce in high concentrations in certain areas, leading to these visible patches.

 

AGE SPOT TREATMENT MODALITIES

There are several highly effective treatments, each designed to target specific skin concerns and types:

 

  • Laser Treatments for Age Spots: This method harnesses the precision of laser technology and focuses on melanin-heavy areas, breaking down the pigment and promoting skin regeneration. The result? A clearer, revitalized complexion.

 

  • IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) for Age Spots: IPL treatments offer a broad spectrum of light that targets the pigment in the skin. IPL addresses age spots by fragmenting these pigments and improves the appearance of other skin discolorations.

 

  • Chemical Peels for Age Spots: Delving deeper into the skin, chemical peels facilitate the shedding of the top layers, accelerating the emergence of new, rejuvenated skin cells and thereby reducing the appearance of spots.

 

WHY TREATING AGE SPOTS?

While age spots and similar discolorations are largely harmless, many individuals opt for treatment for aesthetic reasons. Clearer skin often translates to boosted confidence and a rejuvenated sense of self. Moreover, with the right treatment modality, we can address co-existing skin concerns, ensuring a comprehensive approach to skin health.

What is IPL Skin Treatment?

IPL Skin treatment is used to break up areas of deep pigmentation on the arms, legs, face, neck, back, or shoulders. IPL skin treatment targets red & brown discolorations including birthmarks, liver spots, freckles, broken capillaries, dyschromia, melasma, café au lait macules, hyperpigmentation, freckles, port wine stains, and rosacea.

How does an IPL facial work?

The bright light creates energy that is used to cauterize or close red vessels and break up pigmentation, reducing the appearance and color of red and brown spots.

Who should get an IPL facial?

If you are looking to decrease the visibility of freckles, broken capillaries, liver spots, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, or other areas of hyperpigmentation, then an IPL Photofacial is for you! Both men and women enjoy clearer looking skin after treatment!

What areas can be treated with IPL Facial?

The face, neck, chest, and arms usually have the best results; however, most areas of the body can be treated.

Is IPL facial safe?

For individuals with skin that is Fitzpatrick type 1-4, treatment is extremely safe and should have minimal side effects and recovery time; however, individuals with Fitzpatrick skin types 5 or 6 are not candidates for treatment.

Who is not a candidate for an IPL skin treatment?

Individuals who are very tan or that have darker skin tones should not get an IPL skin treatment because the treatment targets pigment in the skin. You cannot receive an IPL Photofacial if you have an active herpes breakout or have used Accutane within the last 6 months. Furthermore, those with a history of seizures are warned about the bright light that occurs at the beginning of treatment and, depending on the seizure history, possibly advised against treatment. Women that are pregnant or nursing are advised to postpone treatment, as is common with most elective procedures.

What skin tones are best for an IPL Facial?

Fair to medium, untanned skin tones tend to have the best results! Those of Hispanic, Middle Eastern, or Asian heritage can receive IPL as long as they are untanned!

How should I prepare for my IPL skin treatment?

For 3 days prior to your treatment, do not use Retinols. For 2 weeks before treatment, avoid prolonged sun exposure. You may be turned away if you have a recent tan, as these pigments could be targeted by the treatment.

How many IPL skin treatments will I need?

The number of treatments depends on the level of pigmentation in the treated area. Some individuals are happy with the results after one session, but 3 sessions are usually recommended to get clearer and brighter skin. If you have areas of severe deep pigmentation, 6 sessions may be required to achieve optimal results.

How long does IPL facial take?

Treatment typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes; however, the amount of time may vary depending upon the area or areas being treated. The arms can take as little as 15 minutes while areas on the face may take 20 to 30 minutes

What does it feel like to get an IPL facial?

During the process, you may feel a warm sensation at the treatment site.

Does IPL Facial hurt?

There is a warm sensation during treatment. The majority of our patients can get the treatment without any numbing cream at all because the sensation is very mild and produces little to no discomfort. There may be a slight sunburn-like sensation after treatment. You can use ice packs or water mists to alleviate the sensation, which typically disappears in 12 hours.

How do I care for my skin after an IPL facial?

The most important thing to remember is to moisturize and protect yourself from the sun. Avoid peeling, scratching, or using dermabrasion on the treated areas. Additionally, do not engage in watersports or get into a hot tub, a swimming pool, or the ocean for 1 to 2 weeks after your procedure.

Will my IPL facial results look natural?

Yes! Your skin will look more even and natural after treatment!

When can I get my next IPL skin treatment?

The length of time between treatments depends on your skin type and how well it heals. You will need to wait at least 2 to 4 weeks before getting another treatment.

This can last 1 to 3 days; however, you can cover these areas with makeup or tinted sunscreen.

Can I get an IPL facial before a special event?

For optimal results and to allow for adequate healing time, schedule your treatment for 2 to 4 weeks prior to the event.
