New laser and light-based therapies are an excellent, non-invasive way to easily and effectively improve sun-damaged skin, remove age spots, and correct unwanted skin pigmentation.
How do lasers treat sun damage and remove age spots?
During treatment, intense light energy is delivered in powerful pulses and absorbed by targeted areas below the skin’s surface, gently breaking up excess skin pigmentation and vascular lesions that are associated with sun-damaged skin and age spots. When excess pigmentation from sun damage is removed from skin on the face, chest, arms, or legs, the skin reflects light more efficiently, giving a youthful and glowing appearance. Heat from the light therapy also stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms, promoting the production of new collagen. This will result in continuing improvement in skin tone and textural apparance in the months following treatment.
