Skin Treatment for Age Spots By Nimit D on May 15, 2013

Ottawa Age SpotsWith sun exposure and aging, the skin is prone to developing dark spots, commonly referred to as age spots, sun spots, sun damage, or hyperpigmentation. Age spots can make the face and hands look years older. Age spots can be a dead giveaway for a patient’s true age. Fortunately, there are treatments available to improve the appearance of age spots. For Ottawa facial plastic surgery patients, age spot treatment is the perfect complement to produce a completely rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Read on to learn about age spot treatment with the PhotoFacial™ procedure.

PhotoFacial™ Treatment for Age Spots

PhotoFacial™ treatment is one of the most popular treatments for eliminating age spots, but it can also be used to reduce the appearance of rosacea, fine lines, mild acne scars, dark bags under the eyes, and large pores. PhotoFacial™ treatments are perfect for treating areas prone to sun damage and age spots, like the face, neck, chest, and hands. In three to five treatments, PhotoFacial™ can dramatically reduce the appearance of age spots for a more youthful look. 

PhotoFacial™ treatments do not use lasers, but rather a special light, which works by emitting different wavelengths deep within the skin. The PhotoFacial™ procedure works by applying a series of intense pulses of this special light to the treated areas. Each session generally lasts about 30 minutes.

Though recovery is relatively short, some patients will feel slight skin discomfort during and following treatment. Possible risks include skin redness, bruising, and blistering, however, these conditions generally clear within a week or so.

The Benefits of PhotoFacial™ Treatment for Age Spot Reduction

There are many benefits of the PhotoFacial™ procedure to treat age spots. For our patients in Ottawa, PhotoFacial™ restores confidence while restoring the skin's youthful appearance. Here are just a few of the many benefits to be aware of when considering age spot treatment. 

  • Improved Confidence: Treating age spots and sun damage helps restore the skin's appearance, making patients look younger and feel more confident.
  • Improved Aesthetics: PhotoFacial™ treatments improve the look of the skin by reducing the appearance of age spots and other skin imperfections.
  • More Youthful Appearance: Youthful skin is free of age spots. PhotoFacial™ treatments help eliminate existing age spots for a more flawless, youthful appearance.
  • Pair with Other Rejuvenation Procedures for Enhanced Results: PhotoFacial™ treatment is a wonderful addition to any procedure designed to rejuvenate the appearance. Procedures like facelifts, brow lifts, and non-surgical dermal fillers can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and excess skin, but they do not remove age spots, making PhotoFacial™ treatment the perfect finishing touch.
