Age spots, sunspots, sun lentigines, or age marks are small black flat patches that can appear on the skin. They usually vary in size and occur in areas of exposure to the sun, such as the face and hands.
Age spots are caused by overactive pigment cells. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation speeds up melanin synthesis, a natural pigment that gives skin its colour. When melanin clumps or is produced excessively on skin that has had years of sun exposure, age spots appear.
Age spots typically start to appear in people over the age of 50, and they become more common as we age. Typically they are often grouped and are generally harmless. Still, often people don’t like their appearance, so for cosmetic reasons, they can be removed or lighted by various treatments.
Advanced electrolysis is a highly effective method for removing age spots. It takes a few minutes to permanently remove these age spots, with patients typically enjoying 100% success rates.
A thermolysis current is applied via a tiny needle that cauterises the age spots. This allows for the electrolysis technique to be effective in eradicating age spots. The process usually only takes 15-45 minutes to complete, depending upon the number of age spots being treated
Consultation fee is redeemable against treatment otherwise non refundable.
The First Step is to have a consultation.
Your treatment is the second step.
The Final Step is AfterCare
Usually, one treatment is required to treat age spots.
After treatment, the area will feel sore, and you may experience tingling in the area. Scabs and crust will form - you must allow these to slough naturally and not pick them as this will lead to scarring, hyper or hyperpigmentation. It can take up to a few weeks for the skin to completely heal.
There is always a risk involved when undergoing treatment - providing you follow all the aftercare advice given the risk of scarring is minimal. You must entirely leave all scabs alone and allow them to slough off naturally. It is also essential you wear SPF 50 +.
You may feel a tingling sensation at the time of treatment, and there may be some discomfort, but it is very tolerable. Your clinician will continuously assess your comfort levels.
We offer several different options for age spot removal. During your consultation, the clinician will be happy to discuss all options and recommend the best treatment for you.
No. The treated age spot forms a scab typically and will slough off naturally in a few days, and the blemish will disappear.
