Age Spot Removal Elmhurst, IL
Solar lentigines can go by many names, such as “age spots”, “brown spots”, “liver spots” and “sun spots”. Regardless of what you may call them, these spots have one cause: exposure to the sun. Especially for people with light skin, the cells in our skin that causes pigmentation to protect us from the sun, called melanocytes, can be damaged by overexposure to the sun, causing a deposit of the pigment melanin to form, resulting in a solar lentigo. They often form in areas most prone to sun exposure, such as the face, neck, arms, hands, and upper back and chest.
Allure Skin and Laser Center provides a wide variety of treatments for solar lentigines (depending upon the needs of the patient) including lasers, and are usually very effective in minimizing or eliminating the appearance of sun spots.
