Removal of Age Spots (Liver Spots)
Also called: Solar lentigo or Solar Lentigines
As we age under the harsh Australian sun, many fair skinned Aussies, in spite slapping on the sunscreen assiduously, will find flat, brown, grey, or black spots appearing skin – usually around sun-exposed areas such as the hands, shoulders, arms and the face.
Age spots are harmless, but they can be treated quite quickly, effectively and safely with Dr Pico’s PicoSure laser.
“I cycle to work most days. Sydney is a beautiful town with mild weather, so why not take advantage of it! Unfortunately, that means my temples and arms get some exposure to sun – even with sunscreen. So yeah… I noticed those liver spots starting to appear by my temples. I refuse to call them age spots! LOL!”
“I figured why not give Dr Pico a try. Keith, explained the process of how the laser impacts your skin – essentially causing it to regenerate with short micro bursts from the laser – and sure enough, already after one treatment, this one spot on my right temple-cheek area is almost gone. I’m so impressed, I’m going to look at getting other spots sorted for my next visit.”
“For good measure, I’m going to get my skin checked. I do this every six months, but I’m going to ask the skin doctor to look at the areas treated by Dr Pico to get their opinion on the treatment. On the surface it looks amazing, but let’s really find out, I say. Stay tuned for that!”
"So I did speak with my skin doctor and he had no problem with it. Said his son recently did the same thing! Small world. The spots skin doctors are concerned with when it comes to skin cancer are something else altogether, so I'll be coming in again to Dr Pico to get a few more treatments to get my face to look like Chris Helmsworth's! Well OK, there are probably limits to what this thing can do, but if Dr Pico can reduce those signs of aging, I'll take it!"
