Dark, brown age spots are very common among men and women in Syracuse and Central NY, particularly on the face, neck, décolleté, and hands. Known as sun spots or solar lentigines, these age spots are darker portions of the skin, caused by excessive sun exposure. These dark spots can also be caused by UV rays from tanning beds without using appropriate UVA/UVB protection. Aside from dark spots, UV rays and sun damage can cause pre-mature photoaging, resulting in other skincare concerns, such as deep wrinkles, coarse skin, freckling, tactile roughness, and a generally dull appearance on the skin.

Get the treatment that’s right for you..

Luckily, SkinLaze Laser Skin Spa, the trusted leader in Syracuse and Central New York, has unique procedures that will address dark spots, brown spots, and age spots. All of our treatments are administered by licensed medical aestheticians and certified laser technicians, and overseen by our medical director, facial plastic surgeon Dr. Douglas Halliday.

With the DarkSpot Laser Light Treatments protocol (which is exclusive to SkinLaze), our laser technicians will spot treat the individual dark pigment and spots on your skin that bother you. This treatment is noninvasive, quick, and provides visible results after one treatment. Clients can expect the treated area to initially darken or turn an ash gray color over the course of a few days. After a few days, the spots will eventually dry up and gently flake off. Depending on the amount of sun damage that you have on an area of your face or body, you can expect to need one to three of these specialized laser treatments to effectively treat your age spots.

UVA and UVB Sun Proection to Prevent Pre-Mature Aging and Dark Spots

In addition to the DarkSpot Laser Light Treatments protocol, SkinLaze Laser Skin Spa’s aesthetic staff also emphasizes the importance of at-home skin care as an important measure of taking care of your skin. Our trained staff is available to make appropriate recommendations based on your needs and concerns. For example, using medical-grade sun protection with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protectant is essential to preventing any further photoaging and protecting your skin post DarkSpot Laser Light treatment. To ensure proper protection in all weather, our skincare clients prefer the top-of-the-line SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense SPF 30+ sun protection which available at our skin care center.

Conjunctive Skincare for Treating Sun Damage and Age Spots
