Sun spots, those brown spots and patches that appear on the skin after years of fun in the sun, can be effectively removed with the laser technology at Elements Laser Spa. Sun spots, which include age spots, liver spots, freckles, solar lentigines, and other benign pigmented lesions resulting from sun-damage, can be removed from nearly any body area. Most commonly we treat sun spots on the face, arms, hands, chest and back. Laser removal of sun spots can significantly enhance your skin’s appearance.
How many treatments are required to remove sun spots?
One or two laser treatments is all that is required to remove sun spots in most cases.
How long is a treatment session?
The treatment time depends on the number of sun spots to be removed. Typical treatments are around 20 minutes in duration.
Will the sun spots be permanently removed?
Sun spots removed by our lasers usually are gone for good. New spots may appear in previously sun-damaged skin as the aging process continues. On-going exposure to the sun will likely create new spots, particulary in those that freckle or burn easily. Birth marks and brown spots not caused by sun-damage may gradually return with time following laser removal.
How can sun spots be prevented?
The incidence of sun spot formation can be significantly reduced by limiting direct exposure to the UV rays of the sun. Avoid sun-bathing and always wear sunscreen (SPF-30 or better) when outdoors.
How do I get started with removing sun spots?
The first step is to schedule an appointment with our medical director. The physician will examine your sun spots and give us approval to proceed with treament if the spots appear to be benign. Spots that appear potentially cancerous will not be treated with the laser.
How much does laser sun spot removal cost?
The price for sun spot removal starts at $100 per treatment for a 20 minute session. Larger areas that take more time to treat will cost more. Contact us to schedule a free consultation so that we may provide you with an exact price.
