Sun spots and age spots can develop at any time, and some people are more prone to developing these pigmented patches on the skin than others. While there are several cosmetic preparations that can be applied to the skin to reduce the appearance of sun spots, laser skin rejuvenation methods are the only effective way to permanently get rid of the spots after a single or series of treatments. The Apogee Laser is among the latest innovations in skin rejuvenation and hair removal, and promises significant results after a single treatment.
Here’s a close look at how the Apogee laser can help to remove sun spots:
How does the Apogee Laser Works?
The Apogee laser is designed primarily for removing unwanted hair, but it also treats benign pigmented lesions such as freckles and sunspots. The laser device is passed over the skin with long-pulse durations of energy and gently removes the pigmented lesions without burning or scarring the skin tissues. The laser boasts a faster treatment than standard laser skin rejuvenation procedures, little downtime, and no pain.
What are the Key Benefits of the Apogee Laser?
The Apogee Laser can be administered on the face, neck, chest and other parts of the body, and promises several benefits over other types of lasers. Some of the key benefits of the Apogee laser include:
Gentle and painless procedure
Has an integrated cold air and integrated cooling system for better patient comfort
Easy to administer on all skin types
Can be used to treat facial and leg telangiectasias
Can be customized to produce results for dark sun spots, light freckles and other skin lesions
Is a non-invasive treatment for correcting sun-damaged skin
Other Information About Sun Spot Removal
Laser skin rejuvenation treatments have been used to get rid of sun spots and age spots for decades, and the Apogee laser is among several lasers that can help to create a blemish-free, youthful appearance. Sun spots can be prevented by using sunscreen on a daily basis and minimizing sun exposure, but laser treatments combined with chemical peels and bleaching creams can help to improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin.
After the skin has recovered from an Apogee laser treatment, there may still be some marks of sun damage left behind. While these can fade over time, treatments such as chemical peel or microdermabrasion can help to speed up the cell turnover process and generate healthier cells over the treated area. A combination of glycolic, lactic acid or PCA peels can help to reduce the appearance of sun spots even further. After that, the patient will need to keep the skin well-moisturized and use sunscreen on a regular basis to prevent the formation of additional sun spots.
