Age spots, also known as liver spots, are a common skin condition where small, dark patches appear on the skin’s surface. You’ll often find age spots cropping up in areas exposed to the elements, such as the face, shoulders, arms and hands.
So what causes age spots? The number one cause for age spots is previous sun exposure. It’s the body’s way of creating more pigment cells as a way of protecting the skin from further sun damage.
Age spots can show up on younger people if they’ve spent a lot of time in direct sunlight, but they’re more commonly found on older skin. Age spots can affect all skin types and generally, unlike freckles, won’t don’t fade over time.
If you’re looking for an effective way to lessen the appearance of age spots, then our SkinSpaceUK clinics are on hand with a range of solutions, tailored to meet your individual needs.
Depending on the area being treated, we have a range of solutions including the Pixel Perfect Laser Treatment, which uses an iPixel laser to penetrate the skin with tiny thermal channels, vaporising damaged skin tissue one layer at a time.
