What are age spots?

Age spots are also known as sun spots, liver spots, lentigos or lentigines. These skin discolorations are typically brown and flat. They appear on areas of the skin commonly exposed to the sun such as the backs of the hands, the forearms, neck, chest and face.

How does it work?

The treatment works by directing a beam of laser light to the target chromophore which is the dark pigment (melanin) within the age spot. This removes the abnormality without scarring or damage, resulting in improved skin texture and reduced signs of aging.
