Best Cleveland Age Spots Treatment | Facial Plastic Surgeon

Treatment for Age Spots in Cleveland, Ohio

Darkened marks on the back of our hands and on our cheeks are known by many names. Age spots, sunspots, brown spots, and liver spots are just a few. Age spots can occur on all parts of the body and are more likely to be present as we grow older, but they generally appear where the skin is exposed to the sun. The mottled appearance of the melanin clusters can make the skin appear older or more gaunt.

What causes age spots?

Age spots are most noticeable in men and women who have had more exposure to the sun or tanning beds. Age spots occur in a range of colors from light brown to red and even dark red or black. They appear as flat, uneven dark patches on the face, neck, chest, hands, and other areas that are regularly exposed to the sun. Generally are not harmful, they should still be monitored for changes in margins and color over time.

Can age spots be removed?

Chemical peels are a great option for treating age spots. The type of chemical peel is selected based on the severity of the darkened pigmentation and the acceptable amount of downtime.
Laser treatment is also extremely effective for treating age spots. High-intensity laser light is targeted at the pigment (melanin) in the spots. The lasers cause a tiny thermal injury to the unwanted pigment, triggering the body’s natural healing process which fades the age spots. Chemical peels and laser treatment for age spots are suitable and successful for people of all skin types, but personalized recommendations should be considered based on skin tone to reach optimal results when removing age spots.

  • 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.
