Age Spots

Medical grade options for effective laser & IPL age spot removal treatments

IPL and Laser Age Spot Removal

At The Lynton Clinic, we have a wide range of medical-grade devices that enable us to deliver safe and effective treatments with clinically proven results for age spot removal.

Age spots are caused by overactive pigment cells, due to overexposure to the sun. Unwanted sun damage, age spots, liver spots, and dark pigmentation are a common sign of ageing. Lynton IPL is a medical-grade light-based treatment that effectively reduces age spots, to improve the tone and appearance of sun-damaged skin. This photo rejuvenation treatment also stimulates the natural production of collagen within the body, which is important for firmer and more youthful-looking skin.

Laser Age Spots Treatment Summary
IPL and Laser Skin Treatment

Aesthetic treatments often concentrate on the face. However, it’s often the texture of the skin and the appearance of age spots on the décolletage (chest), shoulders, arms, and hands that age you. This treatment procedure is quick, effective, and safe. The signs of sun damage will flake off following a course of treatments, leaving flawless, younger-looking skin. Following a thorough consultation, we will choose which treatment is best for you, we may choose to treat with advanced medical-grade IPL, alexandrite laser, or Nd: YAG laser technology.

Key facts:

  1. Age spots vary in size and usually appear on the face, chest, hands, shoulders, and arms – areas most commonly exposed to the sun
  2. Age spots are most commonly seen in adults over 50 but can be seen in younger people due to overexposure to the sun
  3. Age spots can affect all skin types, but they’re most commonly seen in light skin tones and if you have a history of frequent sun exposure or sunburn
  4. The use of tanning beds and lamps can also contribute to the development of age spots

FAQs

How does the treatment work?

Light is released in short pulses that are readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within pigmented lesions. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells.

How is the treatment carried out?

The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. With Q-Switched Laser treatments due to the power of the Laser energy delivered into the skin, a small amount of pinpoint bleeding may occur during the treatment, and a dressing may be applied after the treatment to protect the skin while it heals. During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark skinned or tanned individuals. However, large, dark, mottled or raised pigmentation cannot be treated and may need to be checked by a dermatologist. Large, dark moles should not be treated, nor should lesions covering a large part of the body. The pigmented marks that respond the best are super cial lesions such as those caused by sun damage (sun spots) and freckles.

How does the treatment feel?

Most patients describe the discomfort as mild and tolerable and no anaesthesia is required.

What should I expect after the treatment?

The treated area may feel warm and sensitive for the first few days post treatment. The lesions may darken and may appear more obvious before they fade and ‘flake’ away. Sometimes an initial whitening of the area is seen which quickly fades and the pigment gradually fades over the following few weeks.

Are there any side effects?

The skin that surrounds the pigmented lesion may become red immediately after treatment. Most people experience no other side effects and the redness usually disappears within hours to a few days. Very rarely a small blister may form or the skin may become temporarily lighter or darker.

How long does each treatment take?

The length of each treatment will depend on the type and size of lesion present, but a typical session will take 10 to 30 minutes.

How many treatments are necessary?

The number of treatments will depend on the type and size of the pigmented lesion but typically 1 to 3 sessions are required at 4 to 6 week intervals.

What is the consultation procedure?

Prior to treatment you must  first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.

Customer Testimonials

Very good service - thanks

Paul O'sullivan

I have just finished a course of 3 IPL treatments. I’m amazed with results the red veins on my face have gone completely. It was great value for money, the staff are really friendly & the clinic is clean, relaxing & I’d certainly recommend it. Many Thanks!

Jill Dwyer

Great consultation, very in depth and can tell kirsty is very experienced and knowledgeable very polite and great to chat too

Emma Rees

I have had several fractional laser sessions at The Lynton Clinic on what was very severe post acne scarring to the whole of my back. The scarring varied in severity from slight pitting to large patches (2cm squares) of hypertrophic scars. These scars were approximately 18 years old and something I had just learnt to live with. The treatments were quick and are absolutely tolerable. There was some sunburn type of heat to the area afterwards but pretty much completely gone after an hour or so. The results have been outstanding, the scarring is still visible and will never disappear completely but the difference has been life changing. The confidence I feel to wear clothing and swimwear that reveal that area of my body without feeling embarrassed is amazing. I am hooked and am now curious as what else laser machines can achieve for me!!! Many thanks to The Lynton Clinic Team.

Katie Mares

I have had a course of laser hair removal on my back at The Lynton Clinic, having suffered with in-growing hairs now for years I wish I had found this treatment earlier. I no longer have to suffer with this problem and I also have hardly any hair left that I have to deal with. I found them to be very professional and would highly recommend this clinic and treatment to anyone

Andrew Godwin

Fantastic service. Friendly staff. Best place for laser treatments. They have the clients best interest at heart. Perfect location for when you have had treatment and don’t want to be seen afterwards. Thank you Lynton clinic. I will be back!

Jenny Weinstock

Something I really appreciate when visiting a clinic is great customer service - Emma was extremely professional and welcoming, I felt well looked after from start to end and I had a memorable and pleasurable experience that I am more than happy to share. Highly recommend Lynton clinic for their in depth knowledge and high tech treatments, to help you feel as good as possible about yourself!

I feel much more confident now and don't have to worry about always having to cover the birthmark up.
