The lentigines that develop in older adults are often called "liver spots" or " age spots". These spots have nothing whatsoever to do with the liver. They are just lentigo type lesions that are commonly seen in older people who are, or who have been, out in the sun without significant sunscreen and have an accumulation of sun damage. Pigmented lesions occur in response to sun induced skin injury. There can also be diffuse browning over a large area of the skin.
These spots are most commonly found on the face, neck, shoulders, chest and hands.
Imperfections from sun damage and photoaging, enlarged pores, a dull complexion and other skin imperfections can be treated with photorejuvenation to make your skin look younger. Intense Pulse Light (IPL™) technology improves both the superficial and deeper skin layers and rejuvenates the skin, while at the same time delivers beneficial thermal energy to deep tissue.
After a series of treatments you can see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation and the appearance of smoother, revitalized skin. Treatments can be used effectively on the neck, chest and hands.
