Solar Lentigos/Liver Spots

One sun spot larger than the rest? Sounds like a Solar Lentigo!

Solar Lentigos (aka Liver Spots) are large spots that are found on our skin. As you may have guessed by its name, they are caused by the sun. They range in colours from light brown to red and even dark red or black.

Before After

Unlike freckles, solar lentigos are more likely to arise as we age and usually start appearing after the age of 40. They are more noticeable in those of us that have had more exposure to the sun and subsequently ultraviolet radiation. For this reason, they are predominantly found on areas of our body usually exposed to the sun.

Solar Lentigo Treatment

We understand the negative impact that damaged looking skin can have, especially on our face & hands. Removal of solar lentigos is a common request for us at City Laser Clinic. As solar lentigo’s are surface pigmentations, we are able to remove the spots within 1-4 treatments. These treatments are to be done at 4 week intervals for best results.

Our laser therapists have the experience, training, qualifications, and equipment to provide safe and effective treatment of skin pigmentations. As with all laser treatments, the frequency & number of treatments will depend on your skin type & area of concern. Contact us to arrange a laser consultation to discuss a treatment plan that suits your needs.

Technology

To successfully remove solar lentigos, we use our Medlite Q-Switched laser. The Medlite Q-Switched laser is a medical grade device that is able to safely remove the spot. The spot will scab up and fall off within 2 weeks of the treatment, with no remaining marks. You will forget you ever had the spot to begin with!

Downtime

2 weeks downtime. If your solar lentigo is on your face, you can cover it with makeup from the third day post-treatment.
