Do dark spots on your face and hands make you feel self-conscious? Dark spots (often called sun spots or liver spots) on the face and hands are common as we age, but some people get them earlier, darker, and denser than others. When this happens, it may give you an aged appearance, but fortunately, age spot treatments at our NYC treatment center can remove age spots, often in a single visit and with no downtime. Please call (212) 688-5882 to schedule an appointment at our Manhattan office or (718)-729-8512 to schedule an appointment at our Woodside office.
What Causes Age Spots?
Age spots are actually the result of cumulative sun exposure. In tanning, the skin responds to ultraviolet radiation by producing melanin, a pigment that protects the skin from burning. After significant sun damage, the skin will begin producing melanin unevenly, making it darker in some places.
This often results in what we know as “age spots,” as your skin simply tries to defend itself against the cumulatively-damaging effects of the sun’s rays. The good news is that this condition is quite easily remedied with a number of non-invasive age spot treatments offered here at JUVA in NYC.
Age Spot Treatments in NYC
We have a wide variety of lasers and light devices that we can use to remove age spots. For most individuals, we use the Revlite laser, which removes most age spots in a single treatment. A second age spot treatment with this laser may be necessary for a small number of people. For people with very sensitive skin, a light treatment may be used, to gradually reduce the appearance of age spots over two to five treatments.
If you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tighten your skin at the same time, fractional laser skin resurfacing may be right for you. Although it takes several quick lunchtime treatments, it is highly effective, and the additional benefits of skin tightening and wrinkle reduction make it a better treatment for many people. You’ll enjoy smoother, more youthful skin, in addition to the reduced presence of age spots and pigmentation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are age spots?
Age spots are the result of cumulative sun exposure. In tanning, the skin responds to ultraviolet radiation by producing melanin, a pigment that protects the skin from burning. After significant sun damage, the skin will begin producing melanin unevenly, making the skin darker in some places.
What is the Revlite laser and how does it work?
Cynosure’s Revlite utilizes advanced laser technology to target your unwanted sun damage and age spots. The energy delivered causes the spots to slowly disappear through your body’s natural healing process, revealing clearer, more beautiful-looking skin.
Is a Revlite session painful?
A numbing cream is applied to the patient’s skin prior to treatment. For most patients there’s virtually no pain or downtime, allowing you to return to your normal activities right after your session.
When will I see results from Revlite sessions?
Typically, you only need one or two treatments, depending on your condition, to achieve preferred results. Patients can expect to see a decrease in the appearance of age spots in the treated area within two weeks of treatment.
Does Revlite treat other pigmentation issues?
Yes, the Revlite laser light treatment is suitable for treating age spots, sun damage, and freckles on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, and feet.
