Age spots are flat, brown or black spots on the skin. They usually occur on sun-exposed areas of the skin including the face. They are also called liver spots, senile lentigo, or sun spots.
They are the result of an excess production of melanin due to skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet (UV) light exposure, such as tanning beds.
Age spots aren’t dangerous and don’t cause any health problems. Treatment isn’t necessary. However, some people want to remove age spots because they don’t like the way they look.
Age Spot removal is classed as a cosmetic procedure and is no longer available on the NHS.
They can be safely removed using advanced electrolysis.
The tip of the finest, smallest needle possible (about the size of an eyelash) is introduced onto the age spot and a tiny energy current is discharged, this then dries up and destroys the spot which then scraped off.
The time taken to treat this condition will depend on the size, number and of age spots to be treated. Your practitioner will advise during the consultation if the problem can be treated in one session or if a course of treatment is likely to be required.
Clients should expect some redness following treatment and some small scabs can form, which will drop off a few days following treatment.
