Look Younger with Removal of Age Spots
Understanding Age SpotsAge spots, sometimes called liver spots, are solar lentigines. The upper layer of skin contains melanin, pigment that give it color. Years of exposure to sunlight, or commercial tanning, causes melanin to clump into concentrated areas. Age spots are most often seen on people with naturally light complexions on:
- Backs of the hands
- Tops of the feet
- Shoulders and upper back
Gone at the Speed of LightDr. Lloyd uses precise laser (focused light energy) therapy to destroy the melanin, without harming the surface of the skin. Usually, just a few treatment sessions are needed to effectively fade age spots. The procedure is painless, and there is no downtime.
Dr. Lloyd talks with you about the importance of daily sun protection to avoid future age spots, and to keep your skin healthy and young-looking. She can recommend high quality, non-irritating sunscreen, and other antiaging products.
