Do the dark spots on your hands and face make you feel embarrassed? As we grow older, dark spots, also known as sunspots or liver spots, are commonly found on the hands and face. However, some people can develop them earlier and/or in darker tones than others. When age spots develop, it can make people feel and look older. Fortunately, at Dermatology Institute of Southern California board certified Los Angeles dermatologist Dr. Daniel Behroozan and his dedicated team of skin-care specialists offer new technologies that effectively lighten or remove age spots.
Causes of Age Spots
Age spots vary in size and may appear anywhere on the face, hands, shoulders and arms, which are the areas of the body that are most frequently exposed to the sun. Age spots are the result of years of sun exposure and are also linked to the use of tanning beds. When significant sun damage occurs, the skin’s melanin’s production becomes uneven and can result in liver spots in certain places.
Treating Age Spots in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica
Our advanced procedures treat age spots leaving your skin smoother. We use several advanced lasers and light-based devices that remove age spots with optimal healing time. Many patients prefer the Alexandrite laser, which makes age spots disappear in just one treatment. Additional favorable, no downtime solutions for age spots are microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Both are relaxing and quick procedures that use professional-grade exfoliation to produce smoother, more evenly toned skin. Chemical peels work especially well to reduce age spots because they address the layer of skin directly impacted by sun-damage.
If you would like to target wrinkles, improve skin laxity and remove liver spots all at once, the Fraxel laser is just what you are looking for. Our Los Angeles dermatologists often perform Fractional Laser skin resurfacing treatments to fade scars, age spots and rejuvenate the skin with instant results. These treatments are performed on isolated areas to zap away age spots without harming the surrounding skin. Fraxel and the Fractional CO2 Laser fade blemishes, lines and creases created by sun exposure.
