Over the years you will likely begin to notice the appearance of age spots on your face. Because of this, many are interested in dark spot removal by dermatologists for a safe and effective strategy to regain clear skin.

Why Do Age Spots Form?

Age spots, also known as sunspots, dark spots, liver spots, etc., form over time due to sun exposure and aging.

How Are Age Spots Treated?

Laser therapy is largely regarded as the best solution to remove age spots on the face and body.

Some of the most popular and effective lasers that can blast away these dark spots include the following:

  • IPL Laser
  • Nd: YAG Laser
  • CO2 Laser

Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Therapy for Dark Spots?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of dark spots and discoloration on your face you may benefit from laser treatments.

Treatments can be customized for your individual needs based on the size and location of your spots.

Moreover, the recent advancements in laser technology make laser treatments a safe and effective treatment for all skin colors.

Are Laser Treatments Painful?

Generally, most patients find laser treatments to be relatively pain-free.

In fact, many patients describe laser therapy as feeling like a small snapping of a rubber band against the skin.

If you are concerned about a painful treatment experience, you can request that a topical numbing cream be applied to the treatment area in advance.
