Laser age spot removal is a safe and effective procedure for removing harsh unattractive markings on the skin to reveal a more youthful and rejuvenated glow. Age spots or hyperpigmentation are caused by over production of melonin from melanocytes (typically the result of extensive exposure to the sun). The laser targets these hyperpigmented cells, and effectively destroys them, illiminating the dark spot. Acadiana Laser Center's Gentle Max laser can treat all skin types without causing any damage to the surrounding skin. If there are concerns that a spot may actually be cancerous, Dr. Schneider can examine the area and recommend the best treatment for you.
