What Is Age Spot Treatment?
If you experience age spots or brown lesions, our group at Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK offers laser treatments that reduce the appearance of these blemishes. Caused by aging and sun damage, patients can experience different size spots on their hands and face. If you feel embarrassed by these skin conditions, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Angelo Cuzalina. During your consultation, he can listen to your cosmetic goals and determine if laser removal is right for you.
Ideal Candidates For Laser Age Spot Removal
Ideal candidates for laser age spot removal:
- Maintain good, overall health to assist with the healing process
- Experience red and brown spots on the face, hands, chest, or legs
- Possess broken capillaries
- Have unwanted freckles
This treatment may not work well if you have the potential risk for keloid scars or you take certain medications. At your consultation, Dr. Cuzalina will listen to your concerns, answer any questions, discuss your medical history, assess your skin, and develop a treatment plan that works best for you.
At the beginning of your procedure, we will ask you to lie on a treatment chair. Someone from our team will clean the skin to remove any lotions, oils, or dirt. Next, we apply a numbing cream to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. Once you are completely numb, we gently move the device over the treatment area. As the laser moves over your skin, it will emit bright pulses of light that target only the brown spot. The heat damages the skin cells that contain pigmentation and stimulates the production of collagen. After the procedure, you can return to your normal routine.
What To Expect
Following your procedure, you may experience redness near the treatment site. Generally, your side effects subside in a few hours. In about 1 – 2 weeks, you should see a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your age spot. Before sending you home, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions. One of the most important parts of your aftercare routine is to avoid excessive sun exposure and to always use sunscreen. This will also prevent the appearance of new brown spots. If you have any trouble with the site healing, please let us know.
"Dr. Cuzalina and his entire staff have been so incredible to me. I wish I could give more than just 5 stars. I’ve lost 135 pounds and they did my tummy tuck! Not only this, but they did it completely free to me after applying for Dr. Cuzalina’s complimentary surgery. Never once did I feel as if I was treated any differently than patients who paid. Each member of the staff was so incredibly kind, caring, and made sure to let me know they were there for me! They gave me their personal cell phone numbers to be able to access them outside of regular office hours if I had any issues. My stomach has never been flat my entire 23 years of life, and now it is thanks to Tulsa Surgical Arts! Down the line I hope to get skin removal on my arms and thighs as well, and I know without a shadow of a doubt I will be returning to their office when I can afford it. Thank you all so very much for changing my life. Words can’t describe how grateful I am for all of you."- S.H. / Google / Oct 20, 2020
