Age spots are little, flat, dark spots on the skin. They tend to appear on parts of the body that are exposed to the sun, such as the face, arms, hands, and shoulders. People over age 50 commonly get age spots, but younger people can get them too with enough sun exposure. Age spots are also called liver spots and sunspots.
Some people mistake age spots for cancer. However, actual age spots do not require treatment for medical reasons. Many people do have them lightened for cosmetic reasons since age spots can be a source of embarrassment for many. While they cannot be completely eliminated, they can be greatly improved with Fraxel® laser therapy.
What is Fraxel® Laser Therapy?
Here at Ultimate Image Cosmetic Medical Center in Tampa and Clearwater, we use the Fraxel® DUAL 1550-1927 laser for our clients. This is a laser treatment that uses two lasers simultaneously to target age spots and improve collagen production. The results can be dramatic, with significant improvement in the appearance of age spots. Fraxel® laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with deep laser penetration into your skin to speed up the restructuring of collagen. Since only a small area of tissue is treated at a time, leaving the surrounding tissues intact, healing is quicker than other treatments with similar results. By resurfacing your skin and stimulating cell regeneration, just one Fraxel® treatment gives you a smoother, more youthful-looking face from the inside out.
Fraxel® for Age Spots
While the collagen-boosting benefits of Fraxel® are nice, many people opt for this treatment because of its ability to blast away (or at least greatly diminish) the appearance of age spots. Age spots can be very embarrassing for clients and are one of our most frequent complaints. Over 50 clinical studies have proven Fraxel®‘s effectiveness in reducing the appearance of age spots and augmenting collagen growth.
