Age Spot Removal
Our med spa offers age spot removal procedures for patients in Toledo, Maumee, Perrysburg, Bowling Green, Findlay, Sylvania, and the surrounding areas who want to reverse years of sun damage in minutes.
What is Age Spot Removal?
Age spots are areas of hyperpigmentation due to an increase in melanin. This occurs due to sun damage. Removing age spots is performed in much the same way you remove any other areas of hyperpigmentation: with a laser.
Age spots and freckles respond well to newly advanced laser treatments, in which the laser light is absorbed by the darkened pigment, thereby lightening or destroying it and leaving the skin looking more uniform in color, texture, and appearance.
When sun damage or visible pigmentation is more widespread, we may recommend a series of BroadBand Light™ treatments to break up the pigment cells. With this non-invasive, “lunch time” approach, your age spots and sunspots will usually lessen or disappear within three or four weeks.

- 2Removing your age spots can help you look and feel younger.
- 3Age spot removal is a generally quick procedure, giving you fast results.
How is Age Spot Removal Performed?
Age spot removal is a quick procedure, usually performed with lasers. In the same way lasers can be used to remove tattoos, they can be used to remove the hyperpigmented areas that are known as age spots.
A number of possible treatment options are available if you are looking to remove abnormal pigmentations on your skin. These range from chemical peels and typical skin lightening creams such as hydroquinone, all the way to laser and IPL® treatments. Remember to first see a dermatologist to be sure that these spots are not cancerous or precancerous lesions.
