What Is Age Spot Treatment?
“Solar lentigines,” also known as age spots or liver spots, are most common in people over the age of 40, but just about anyone can have age spots. The brown areas can be caused by aging, but sun exposure is also a common reason why Floridians are affected by age spots. The dark color is a result of high melanin, or pigment, in the skin, and age spots can be brown or black.
Is Age Spot Treatment Right for Me?
Dr. Farber may recommend age spot treatment if you have the dark areas of pigmentation in places that you feel are cosmetically unappealing. While laser treatments are considered quite safe, Dr. Farber will review your medical history to ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.

What Happens During Age Spot Treatment?
Dr. Farber uses a laser device that is specially designed for treating the layers of skin where age spots originate. When laser energy is applied to the age spot, the pigment breaks up and is absorbed by your body. The application of the laser feels similar to a small pinch, which most patients tolerate well during the treatment.
How Much Does Age Spot Treatment Cost in Boca Raton, FL?
Your age spot treatment may need to be repeated, especially if you have a particularly stubborn area that fades slowly with each treatment. Treatments are typically not covered by medical insurance, so you may want to consider our financing options to help you manage the cost.
On the Road to Recovery
If Dr. Farber recommends additional age spot treatments for best results, the appointments will be schedule at least eight weeks apart. This gives your body time to absorb the pigmentation and avoids the possibility of over-treating the area. The area may be red and tender for a few days after your age spot treatment.
