What Are Age Spots?
When your skin is exposed to the sun, it instantly reacts by starting to produce something call “melanin.” Melanin is the substance that gives your skin its color, and it also protects your skin from the sun. So when you go outside and get bombarded by UV rays, your skin will produce melanin that shows up in the form of a tan.
However, as we age, our melanin production may start to form clumps in our skin–and this is what we call age spots.
Patients usually notice that age spots show up on the parts of their skin that get the most sun, namely: the face, arms, hands, chest, back, and feet.
Treatment for Age Spots
Patients aren’t in any danger from age spots. But while they’re totally harmless, they’re particularly unsightly. Fortunately, there are some fantastic treatment options that will almost instantly reduce age spots.
- Laser therapy – Perhaps one of the most effective treatments for age spots is laser therapy. Dr. Sani uses the Halo Laser by Sciton and our patients have received life-changing results from it. The Halo laser combines two different treatments into one; it speeds up healing, and it also slashes the number of treatments that you might need.*
- Chemical peels – Another option for our patients is chemical peels. This treatment method removes the top layers of skin so that the younger, newer layers can shine through.
If you’re tired of seeing age spots on your body, call Dr. Sani today at (408)636-7101. Most of our patients can get almost instant results with laser therapy for their age spots. Plus, with laser therapy, the recovery time and the treatment itself is significantly reduced. Call us today to find out more.
