Skin aging doesn’t just cause wrinkles. A lifetime of exposure to the sun, as well as the use of tanning lamps and beds, can result in the formation of age spots.
These are small, dark spots that appear on the face, shoulders, hands, and other areas that receive the most sun exposure. Age spots can also appear on the skin of younger people who spend much time in the sun.
If you don’t like the way they look, there’s good news: There are age spot treatments in OKC that can significantly minimize their appearance. At Advanced Aesthetics, we take pride in offering cutting-edge solutions to age spots that do not require surgery or extensive downtime.
What Treatment Is Offered For Age Spots?
Advanced Aesthetics offers a range of proven services for lightening age spots, making skin appear more youthful and even. Our team will be more than happy to assist you in determining the best approach for your unique skin concern.
Fraxel® is a non-invasive method that helps diminish the appearance of age spots and target other skin aging symptoms such as wrinkles and fine lines. It is non-ablative, meaning it improves the texture and pigmentation of the skin without causing physical damage to its surface.
Clear + Brilliant® Touch laser treatments are non-invasive, fast, and gentle, resulting in younger-looking, glowing skin. They are ideal as a preventative treatment against age spots. This treatment also helps reduce the appearance of existing fine lines and dark spots.
Also known as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), PhotoFacial is a non-invasive treatment for signs of UV damage and skin aging that can significantly improve the appearance of skin. Apart from age spots, PhotoFacial can treat wrinkles, fine lines, freckles, and acne scars.
Vbeam® by Candela is a proven and trusted treatment that uses a pulsed-dye laser to target a wide range of face and body skin concerns. It helps even out the complexion for smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
Sylfirm X is an FDA-approved microneedling procedure that utilizes radio frequency (RF) to target and treat age spots, fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of skin aging. This minimally invasive treatment helps improve skin complexion, tone and texture as well as reduce skin laxity.
What Is the Treatment Time for Removing Age Spots?
How long it takes depends on several factors, including the age spots’ size and number as well as their depth. Another critical factor is the method used.
With Fraxel®, you may need two to four treatments to see a significant improvement. Most patients need a treatment every six to eight weeks until they achieve their desired results.
With Clear + Brilliant® Touch, it may take at least one or two treatments, but the desired outcomes of most patients are usually noticeable after four to six treatments.
Similarly, patients may need one to three PhotoFacial treatments to see improvement in the appearance of age spots. Note that it will take 10 to 14 days for the old skin to slough off and for new skin to be revealed.
With Vbeam®, it also takes one to three treatments to see a difference in the appearance of age spots.
Remember that results may vary depending on numerous other factors, such as your skin’s condition and health, your age, and your overall health. It helps to be patient and to support your recovery by avoiding sun exposure, moisturizing the skin, and following our aftercare instructions for age spots treatment in OKC.
