Cleveland Age Spot Removal | Cleveland Facial Plastic Surgeons

Age Spot Removal with top Cleveland Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Diana Ponsky

Age spots can occur anywhere on the body but are most common on the face and hands. They appear as flat, uneven dark patches on the face, neck, chest, hands and arms and other areas that are regularly exposed to the sun, and they are more likely worsen as we grow older.

How It Helps

A mottled skin tone is an immediately recognizable indicator of aging or neglected skin. Age spot removal corrects a blotchy and uneven skin tone, creating a more uniform and youthful appearance.

What to expect before age spot removal

Dr. Diana Ponsky will begin your consultation by asking about your goals and expectations, then they will discuss any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors. After examining, photographing, and analyzing your face, the surgeon will discuss potential options and a recommended course of treatment, as well as outcomes, risks or potential complications.


What to expect during age spot removal

Lasers and chemical peels are a common method to remove age spots. These treatments are targeted at the melanin in the spots, causing a tiny thermal injury to the unwanted pigment. The healing process is stimulated, and the dark pigment begins to fade. Spots can be treated in the office setting with minimal discomfort. Lasers and chemical peels are suitable and appropriate on people of most skin types, but personalized recommendations should be considered based on skin tone to reach optimal results when removing age spots.


What to expect after age spot removal

Recovery after age spot removal is localized to the area affected by the age spots. Immediately after your personalized procedure, skin may be covered with petroleum jelly or other protective moisturizer. About seven to ten days after your skin resurfacing procedure, the top layer of skin will have healed and camouflage makeup can be applied to conceal redness. The treated areas may be pink for several weeks, which then it gradually fades.

  • Dr Ponsky’s staff are full of energy and very friendly. They are extremely personable, and worked to ensure that I felt comfortable and had everything I needed (down to a blanket during the procedure). Dr Ponsky is thorough, sweet, and gentle in her explanations. She made sure to explain the answers to each of my questions and I never felt rushed/forced to make a decision. I love the fact that we could do the entire procedure under local anesthesia.
