Tired of Your Sun Spots?
Age spots are also called senile lentigos, solar lentigines, sun or liver spots and are represented by flat tan, black or brown spots on the skin that can vary in size and shape. Age spots can appear on the hands, face, shoulders, upper back, arms and forearms and they are caused by an excess production of melanin, the pigment that gives colour to your eyes, skin and hair.
Usually, age spots develop in people over 40, on areas that were most exposed to the sun, hence the name sunspots, but younger people can experience them too if they spent too much time in the sun. Tanning lamps and tanning beds, especially smoking also play an important role in developing liver spots. Regardless, skin imperfections tend to occur as people age. Age spots are generally harmless and do not require treatment, but many people decide to take action and undergo private treatment. The experienced dermatologists at our Renew Skin & Health Clinic perform procedures for sun spots removal and age spots removal treatment, obtaining excellent results. The moment you notice such spots on your skin is when you have to contact a specialist in the matter in order to know exactly what you are suffering from and most importantly, to find out the risks.

That is why we warmly recommend you to contact our Head Office at Renew Skin & Health Clinic and schedule an appointment for a specialized consultation with the help of which the doctor specialist will give you all the answers you need.

Q. After removal, is there any possibility for the age spots to reappear?
A. Age spots are caused primarily by years of exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet light. In the places where they have been removed, the age spots won’t reappear however, there are plenty of other areas of your body that new age spots could make their appearance.
To avoid such a situation, the specialists at Renew Skin & Health Clinic recommend keeping away from the sun in its most powerful time stamp (between 10 am and 3 pm), as well as keeping your skin safe with high SPF sunscreens. Before going outside, about fifteen to thirty minutes, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen that provides protection in the case of both UVA and UVB light. It is highly recommended to use sunscreen protection lotions that have at least a factor of protection (SPF) of 30.
Regarding the recurrence of previously removed age spots, our specialists guarantee that they will not reappear, as the melanin build-up is completely destroyed and removed by your immune system. Proper aftercare advice will be provided by our doctor specialist so that the treated area recovers completely and you will also be recommended the most effective sunscreen protection for age spots prevention.
Always remember this advice from Renew Skin & Health Care specialists and the possibility of age spots reappearing will be little to none.
Q. Are age spots a medical condition and in any way harmful? Is ageing the only main cause of age spots or are there other factors that may be?
A. It’s really important to know that age spots represent a cosmetic flaw and not a medical condition. If they appear as tanned, black or brown spots of relatively small sizes and on different areas of the body that are continually exposed to the sun (such as the face, arms, shoulders, face), they are harmless and won’t affect your health.
Age spots are also called liver spots or solar lentigines and despite their name, these dark lesions on the skin are not fully conditioned by the normal ageing process. Another important factor that stimulates their occurrence is the harmful UV light that affects the skin and causes an extra production of melanin. For their prevention, try using solar protection and avoid being exposed to the sun during peak hours. Even if not injurious, these age spots can be highly unaesthetic and may cause frustration and low self-esteem.

How Long Does it to see Results?
Although the DEKA CO2 laser treatment for age spots removal provides you with quick visible results of a flawless and firm skin, these cosmetic outcomes are not immediate. But compared to other procedures, after about two weeks, dramatic results will begin to appear. This also depends on each individual and their skin’s ability to regenerate fully, shedding the old layer of skin targeted with the non-ablative thermal action of the DEKA CO2 laser.
The reason why results of laser age spots removal are not immediate is because the build-ups of melanin are broken down into small particles that the immune system needs to absorb and eliminate through different complex processes. Again, this depends on each person, but first visible results are usually seen after 2 -4 weeks, after which they improve with time until completion. For more information about the DEKA CO2 laser age spots removal, simply contact our Head Office and schedule an appointment with our doctor specialist who will provide you with any detail.

However, if you don’t want to undergo such a treatment, there are of course efficient natural remedies that help remove age spots as well.
