What Are Age Spots?
Age spots, also known as liver spots or solar lentigines, are small, flat, brown patches that appear on the skin as we age. They are caused by the accumulation of melanin, the pigment that gives color to our skin, and is most commonly found on areas of the body that have been exposed to the sun, such as the face, hands, arms, and shoulders. These spots also tend to surface during the aging process, and typically occur on the hands and face. While age spots are generally harmless, they can be a cosmetic concern for many people, as they can make the skin look older and less healthy. Fortunately, at Oak Dermatology, there are many treatment options available for age spots that can help reduce their appearance or remove them completely. Our clinics in Naperville, Joliet, and Itasca, IL, are equipped with innovative devices and expertly trained specialists who ensure our patients always receive the best possible care and outcome for their cosmetic concerns.
How Do You Treat Age Spots?
While there are topical treatment options, as well as chemical peels that are effective for the treatment of age spots and brown spots, depending on your evaluation and discussion with your provider, a combination of modalities may be best suited for you. Laser therapy is a popular treatment option for age spots at Oak Dermatology. It involves using a laser to target the melanin in the skin, causing it to break up and be absorbed by the body. This can help reduce the appearance of age spots over time. Generally, these laser treatments have no downtime to minimal downtime depending the choice of laser to be used.
Oak Dermatology is equipped with a large variety of the latest advanced cosmetic technologies. Under the direction of both Dr. Jeffrey T.S. Hsu and Dr. Ashish Bhatia, who are both laser medicine fellowship-trained dermatologists, our providers have the expertise to optimize lasers, or a combination of treatments, to safely and effectively improve skin tone, color, and texture.
Oak Dermatology Reviews
Had my first visit yesterday with Dr. Tracey for a full skin check and I can’t say enough good things! Clean, beautiful facility. Hardly had to wait which is always a plus with doctors. Front desk was really kind. Dr. Tracey was awesome, took the time to answer questions about my concerns and wasn’t quick to just write me a script and send me on my way- she gave me options for solutions the problems I had, was honest about treatment and explained things thoroughly. She also complimented my tattoos which I loved, so many doctors are stuffy white coats and she wasn’t lol. Excellent bedside manner. Definitely will be back!
Very friendly and accommodating. Listened to what I had to say. Even though they couldn't help me,they referred me to someone who could.
Very nice visit - everyone made me feel welcome. The front desk team is helpful and patient and taught me something about my phone! Rachel is awesome as well as Emily. I am extremely happy to have found Oak Dermatology in Naperville at City Gate Center.
From the time I entered the facility, I felt welcomed. A young lady held the door for me with a smile and when I got to see the doctor, the same young lady greeted me again with an another awesome smile 😊. The front desk staff greeted me with a warm smile and was very helpful with everything being my first visit. The awesome doctor who took care of me, was very resourceful and explained everything so I understood clearly and gave me several different options before making a decision. Great staff and would gladly recommend Oak Dermatology.
Friendly, efficient knowledgeable staff-top notch experience
