AGE SPOT (LIVER SPOT, SUN SPOT) REMOVAL
PRICE: FROM £55
Age Spots, also called Liver Spots, Sun Spots and Solar Lentigines, are small dark areas on your skin. They vary in size and usually appear on the face, hands, shoulders and arms — areas most exposed to the sun.
Age Spots are very common in adults older than 50, but younger people can get them too, especially if they spend a lot of time in the sun.
Age Spots can look like cancerous growths. But true Age Spots are harmless. You can help prevent Age Spots by regularly using sunscreen and avoiding the sun.
Age Spots are caused by overactive pigment cells. Ultraviolet (UV) light accelerates the production of melanin. On the areas of skin that have had years of frequent and prolonged sun exposure, Age Spots appear when melanin becomes "clumped" or is produced in high concentrations.
The use of commercial tanning lamps and tanning beds can also contribute to the development of age spots.
Treatment with Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapies destroy melanin-producing cells (melanocytes) without damaging the skin's surface.

HOW WILL I FEEL DURING AGE SPOT (LIVER SPOT, SUN SPOT) REMOVAL?
At Aesthetics & Beauty we use Laser and IPL (Intense Pulse Light) to treat Age Spots. In general, IPL affects the lower layers of the skin, rather than the top. This allows it to reach deeper structures without burning the surface of the skin. You may experience some minor discomfort during the process.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER AGE SPOT (LIVER SPOT, SUN SPOT) REMOVAL?
To help avoid age spots and new spots after treatment, follow these tips for limiting your sun exposure:
Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Because the sun's rays are most intense during this time, try to schedule outdoor activities for other times of the day.
Use sunscreen. Fifteen to 30 minutes before going outdoors, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen that provides protection from both UVA and UVB light. Use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30. Apply sunscreen generously, and reapply every two hours — or more often if you're swimming or perspiring.
Cover up. For protection from the sun, wear tightly woven clothing that covers your arms and legs and a broad-brimmed hat, which provides more protection than does a baseball cap or golf visor.
Consider wearing clothing designed to provide sun protection. Look for clothes labeled with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 40 to 50 to get the best protection.
