Age spots, also known as liver spots, are common skin pigmentation issues that affect many people as they age. We offer several effective treatments to remove them.
Age spots are dark skin spots that usually appear on the face, hands and other areas of the body that are regularly exposed to the sun. While age spots are harmless, some people may feel self-conscious about them and want to reduce their appearance. Fortunately, there are a number of effective age spot removal treatments available, from topical creams to laser treatments. Each approach has its own advantages, and understanding the different treatments can help you decide which one is best for you.Book Your Free Consultation

Dr Saba Raja
If you’d like an age spot removed, Dr Saba Raja is an obvious choice. A leader in the aesthetics field, she delivers holistic medical treatment that is tailored to the individual patient.About Dr Saba
The chemical peel process involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which causes it to exfoliate and peel away. The chemical solution typically contains ingredients such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or trichloroacetic acid, which penetrate the skin and dissolve the outer layer of dead skin cells. This process stimulates the growth of new skin cells, which are smoother, brighter, and more evenly toned than the old cells. Over time, the new skin cells replace the old ones, resulting in a reduction or complete elimination of age spots.
A targeted laser beam is used to break down the pigmentation of the age spot, which is then absorbed into the body’s natural healing process. The laser’s heat energy is absorbed by the dark pigment, causing it to fragment into tiny particles that can be removed by the body’s immune system. During the procedure, the surrounding skin remains unaffected, ensuring that there is no damage or scarring.
Typically, it takes multiple sessions to completely remove age spots, with each session lasting anywhere from a few minutes to an hour.
ZO Skin Health products that contain ingredients such as hydroquinone, retinol, and vitamin C can help fade age spots and brighten the skin. The ZO Brightalive Non-Retinol Skin Brightener is a popular choice for reducing the appearance of age spots. This product contains a blend of skin brightening agents that work together to even out skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation. The ZO Retinol Skin Brightener also contains retinol, which helps to stimulate cell turnover and promote a more even skin tone.
