If you have pesky age spots that you’d like to get rid of, you may be trying to find a laser treatment that can zap them away for good. Age spots come on gradually, and wearing SPF doesn’t seem to keep them from appearing. So is there a laser treatment for age spots.
What are age spots?
Age spots are dark spots on the skin that form as a result of excess melanin production. They are typically seen on the areas that are often exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands, chest, and arms.
Is there a laser treatment for age spots?
Age spots form deep within the dermal layer of the skin, and since the laser energy is able to break apart the clusters of melanin, it can effectively wipe out age spots.
There are several laser treatments for age spots, including the innovative BBL – Broadband light therapy. BBL light therapy is the next generation intense pulsed light (IPL). It is a cutting-edge treatment that produces smoother, younger-looking skin.
How it works
The light is delivered via the hand-held device that is moved around from spot to spot. BBL brings the spots to the surface and they initially appear darker than before. The spots will eventually flake off after about 7 days, leaving the skin clearer and even-toned.
BBL is not painful, as most patients say it feels a lot like a rubber band being snapped against the skin. With BBL there is also the added benefit of collagen regeneration which helps to restore the skin’s beauty.
