Age spots, also called lentigo solaris, are common benign (light) brown pigment spots in the skin. The name age spots has been chosen because these spots often appear in middle age. Among other things, they are caused by sunlight and are therefore common on the face and the back of the hand.
At Huidzorg West we can treat age spots effectively and safely. We have several innovative treatment methods to combat this form of skin ageing. During the initial consultation, we will assess your skin and then look at which treatment plan fits best.
The following methods are used for this condition:
In many cases the skin therapists of Huidzorg West use a combination technique for the various age spots.
For example, Huidzorg West has the Nordlys from Ellipse, which is an IPL device and a Gentle max Pro Alexandrite laser.The most suitable treatment technique is assessed for each spot of skin. When an age spot consists of superficial pigment, it can be effectively treated by IPL or Laser.
When the pigment is located more on the skin, treatment by coagulation or cryotherapy will be the first choice. In this way, the right treatment method is selected for each age spot.
