Age Spots

Here at the Bristol Laser Centre, we can offer you laser treatment for age spots on your hands, your face or your body.

Age spots are usually brown and are sometimes called liver spots, although they don't actually have anything to do with the liver. A more fitting name would be sun spots as they are usually caused by sun exposure over many years.

Brown age spots usually fade well with Qswitched NdYAG laser treatment. However, it is important to check that a brown patch is benign before any laser treatment can start. If your age spot is growing rapidly or has any lumps or black spots within it you should see your GP first. In some cases you may need to see a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon for a special examination.

Bristol Laser Centre offers a sensitive, personal, honest approach to your laser treatment needs. An initial self-funded consultation, at £120, with our specialist doctor is always required to discuss your specific needs.

Age spot laser treatment sessions at the Bristol Laser Centre are from £131 per session.

After your laser treatment your age spots will fade gradually over several weeks. Two or three treatments may be required for maximum fading.  Age spots sometimes come back after a few years and need further laser treatment. 

Your skin will need to be looked after carefully for one or two weeks after each appointment. You should also use a high factor sunblock on the area after treatment to help the spot to fade and reduce the risk of it coming back. Our specialist will advise you on how to look after your skin.

If you're bothered by age spots, and would like to consider laser treatment, book a consultation today to find out more about how our laser treatments may benefit you.
