Pigmentation & Age Spots

Age Spots are brown coloured flat patches common on the hands and face, but can pop up almost anywhere on the body.

Age spots, technically known as lentigines, are well-defined, uniformly coloured areas of brown or greyish pigment that generally show up on the hands, face, neck, and chest.

What causes age spots?
After a lifetime of being exposed to the sun, you’re bound to have multiple consequences, one of which may be unwelcome pigmentation patches or age spots. Despite the name, these spots are not caused by age, rather, they come from sun damage.
Are they dangerous?
Age spots are not usually dangerous, just a bothersome part of ageing. Patches that develop a highly irregular border, darken or thicken should be checked out by a medical practitioner.
What treatment is needed to remove age spots?

To lighten age spots, we use the latest advanced cosmetic procedures, also known as Advanced Electrolysis. The treatment process requires the tip of a small probe to be used with a tiny energy current to remove the blemished area. The treatment itself is hardly felt and easily tolerated.

There are minimal after effects, but a little soreness and scabbing should be expected.

What results can I expect?

Age spots usually respond well to this treatment and lighten considerably, with complete removal often achieved.

Please also see our IPL Treatment Page. IPL Intense Pulsed Light treatment is more suitable for reducing larger areas or multiple dark pigmented areas.
