Natural aging causes many bodily changes, not the least affecting our skin. Age spots are a common occurrence with age, and those who develop them can often feel unhappy with the way they look. If you struggle with these spots, we can help. We offer Excel V+ CoolView or IPL Photofacial treatments to alleviate these and other signs of hyperpigmentation without downtime. Schedule an appointment at our Newport Beach office to learn more.
How Do Age Spots Occur?
Age spots are simply an unfortunate part of getting older. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which is an essential substance for keeping our skin young and supple. Over time, wrinkles, age spots, and sagging can become more visible. There’s no way to prevent this process entirely, but it can be stalled using aesthetic treatments.
What Are the Signs?
Most age spots are harmless and do not require treatment, though some require further evaluation. These spots can be easily identified by their color and shape. In most cases, these signs of hyperpigmentation tend to be flat, oval in shape, and usually darker than your skin tone.
They generally appear on areas of your body that have been most exposed to the sun. These areas include the backs of your hands, the tops of your feet, your face, and your shoulders. They can range in size from small freckle dots to being about half an inch in diameter. Age spots often group, making them more noticeable.
Treatments for Age Spots
IPL Photofacial treatments are safe, non-invasive, and effective in treating various skin concerns. These treatments use intense light in a series of gentle pulses over the facial skin. As the light penetrates through your skin, it is absorbed by brown spots and any abnormally dilated red vessels. While treating your skin, IPL also stimulates collagen production, providing long-lasting, anti-aging results.
While we still offer IPL treatments, more precise and powerful lasers are now available to treat red and brown spots. Our Excel V+ system offers several no-downtime therapies to target the spots and build collagen.
