Age Spots

Hamilton Cosmetic Dermatology has age spot removal treatments that will even out your skin tone to give you a smooth, youthful complexion.

Age spots are caused by intense exposure to the sun or the ultraviolet lights of commercial tanning beds. Ultraviolet light speeds up production of pigment cells that give skin its colour (melanin). Over time, melanin can clump to form dark spots.

Age spots are also known as “liver spots” because people used to believe they were caused by liver problems. They aren’t. In fact, age spots are harmless.

But that doesn’t mean you have to live with them!  Hamilton Cosmetic Dermatology has several age spot removal treatments that will lighten or get rid of your age spots altogether.

Hamilton Cosmetic Dermatology offers two age spot removal laser treatments:

Excel V™ Plus Laser

The Excel V™ Plus Laser is the gold standard laser for age spot removal.  It delivers high-power pulses of light energy that can be dialed down to treat small areas of the skin. The dual wavelength technology heats the upper dermis while simultaneously cooling the skin. As a result, the Excel V™ Plus Laser is the most comfortable laser treatment on the market. Treated brown age spots will darken and slough off in just a few days.

Laser Genesis™

Laser Genesis™ skin therapy is an innovative, technologically advanced method for promoting vibrant and healthy looking skin. Now you can have a youthful appearance by treating conditions typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage – like age spots. The Laser Genesis™ procedure has been scientifically proven to produce new collagen.
