Age Spots Removal

Age spots are usually harmless and have a flat brown,  gray, or black surface on the skin, also called liver spots or sun spots, any changes to the age spots such as an increase in size, sensitivity, itching, bleeding or change in colour, then they should be checked by a doctor as they might be a more serious skin condition.

They are caused by an accumulation of a yellow pigment called lipofuscin, this happens in the connective tissues of the body. Skin ageing, sun exposure, or use of sun-beds, are the general causes. You will find them on areas of the skin that have been over exposed to the sun including:

  • face
  • the back of your hands
  • shoulders
  • forearms

People of any age, sex, or race can develop age spots. However, age spots are more common in people with certain risk factors. These include:

  • Over 40’s
  • fair skin
  • Excessive sun exposure
  • Excessive sun bed use

Age spots can range from light brown to black in colour, will feel smooth to touch and cause no pain, BUT are unsightly and can cause a feeling of stress.

At Positive Pathways we remove age spots using advanced electrolysis with a short wave diathermy electrical current to lift the pigmented area from the skin surface.

It’s a very simple and effective procedure
