Age spots – also called sunspots, solar spots, and solar lentigo – are an unfortunate side effect of sun exposure over time. Years of outdoor activity can cause dark spots to form on your face, arms, chest, and other areas. Age spots are a result of excess melanin. Over time, the melanin can get darker. Luckily, there are many ways to get rid of age spots and restore your youthful glow. If you’re looking for a non-surgical treatment for age spots, you’ll be happy to know that a number of options are available.

Lasers can be used as a non-surgical treatment option for age spots. The type of laser used on your skin will depend on your particular needs. Lasers are often regarded as the quickest method for getting rid of dark spots on the skin. Lasers utilize concentrated light that’s tuned to a specific wavelength. The darker melanin in the age spots will absorb the light. Other healthy skin cells remain untouched while the darker spots are broken up and absorbed back into your body.
